FBI plans to spend $100 million on ammo
WND ^ | March 27, 2013 | Steve Peacock

Posted on 03/27/2013 4:22:52 PM PDT by Steve Peacock

Quarter-billion new rounds also slated for DHS

WND recently reported that the U.S. Department of Homeland Security has purchased well over a billion rounds of ammunition over the past year.

The magnitude of the federal government’s ammunition buildup has been making headlines over the last few weeks, as members of the military, police departments and consumers are finding shelves bare when they want to buy ammunition.

Alarms over the situation have developed just as the Obama administration is pushing hard on its agenda of gun control.

But the full impact may not yet have developed, as WND has uncovered plans by the FBI to spend up to $100 million over five years on millions of rounds for its machine guns and pistols.

I’m just going to call the white house and ask when are they planning on rounding up the patriots in this country? We all know what’s coming so lets tell them we are ready to start.

$2,000,000.00 a year for the next five years. Think about that for a minute.

All this crap wouldn’t be happening if J Edgar Hoover was head of the FBI.

He’d have seen that BO was exposed for what he is before the election of 2012.

IMO

Congress allegedly controls the purse strings. They should be able to put a stop to this, unless they are complicit.

When are some of these ammo manufacturers going to draw a line on these inflated purchases by federal agencies, and reserve a certain percentage of their product for the gun owning public?

It appears to me (and I hope to many ammo makers) that the feds’ real intent is to dry up supplies so that the public has no ammo.

1.) Gearing up against US citizens.

2.) Starving the market of ammo.

3.) Hi-visibility psyops to demoralize their "enemies".

>$100 million over five years on millions of rounds

Must be WND math because even if they bought 1 billion rounds for 100 million bucks that would be 10 dollars per round. So, unless these are silver bullets, $10.00 per round is beyond belief.

The gun and ammo industry shouldn’t let the government corner the market on ammunition. They should only give the government what the people don’t need. It would be different if this were a time of war but it’s not. Sell to the people first, not the government.

FBI warning of possible idicators of suspicious behavior by potential terrorists:

What should I consider suspicious?

People or groups who:

■Provide identification that is inconsistent or suspect or demand identity “privacy”

■Insist on paying with cash or uses credit card(s) in different names

■Make suspicious comments regarding anti-US, radical theology, vague or cryptic warnings that suggests or appear to endorse the use of violence in support of a cause

■Demonstrate interest in uses that do not seem consistent with the intended use of the item being purchased

■Possess little knowledge of intended purchase items

■Make bulk purchases of items to include:

-Weatherproofed ammunition or match containers
-Meals Ready to Eat
-Night Vision Devices; night flashlights; gas masks
-High capacity magazines
-Bi-pods or tri-pods for rifles

Now if they’d just shoot and kill some bad guys it might justify the cost.

If J. Edgar were the head of the F.B.I. Obama wouldn’t have gotten through the primaries with Hillary. Actually, neither would she.

The DHS exists because of 19 virtually unarmed hijackers.
So I ask, why do they need 2 billion rounds of ammo? who do they intend to murder?

The hell of it is that we the public are the ones paying for this outrage. Any odds on how many Republicans remind Democrats about this when they start bleating about needing more 'revenue?'
