The people and the government are both arming up in preparation for an armed conflict between the two.
US ammo makers sell to those that want us dead.
Always remember this.
Bush created a monster when he created the DHS.
Imagine a heavily armed, massive, expensive top-down Gov’t bureaucracy state-security apparatus with a political agenda.
Give it time to develop and expand its “mission” as all bureaucracies do, and in 15-20 years, you will know what I mean.
Obama’s “civilian defense force”?
They’re bad shots.
Congress needs to defund DHS and tell DHS to fund itself by selling amo.
I have a feeling that the Army ammunition usage cited is across literally every single member of the US army (only a small fraction of which are small-arms toting infantrymen) so it’s distorted by tens of thousands of REMFs, aviation guys, tankers, and other specialists who do very, very little small arms practice.
I don’t think they’re necessarily arming up as much as they are trying to corner the market on ammo in an effort to deny it to gun owners.
The record speaks for itself. This administration has used every tool in the book to try and get to gun owners.
GE Capital not lending to gun related industries and now publicly admitting it.
Bank of America terminating accounts of gun businesses.
The list is endless and endlessly diffuse. It is all happening just below the surface so that anyone who calls attention to it for what it really is can easily be marginalized as a kooky conspiratorialist.
It is real.
There is a parade in Detroit. Two Islamic yoots on welfare blow up the route and people are killed and wounded. The entire US and federal law enforcement aparatus goes full scale operations to nab the bombers who fled to hide in Dearborn Michigan. The locals and feds start that door to door crap in Dearborn like they did in Boston..........Except three of five homes happen to be the followers of Muhammad, and immigrated here from the middle east.
Welcome to our own little Bosnia / Serbia pressure cooker.
DHS bought a ton of Ammo, Probably, becaus they know there is going to be a limit on the amount each legal Citizen will be able to buy..
There is nothing Sacred to the OAF in the White House.
And they are buying the EXPENSIVE stuff too! (Hollow points for PRACTICE????)
We used wad-cutters EVERY SINGLE TIME when I was in the Security Police in the Air Force. NEVER used hollow points.
Here is why Homeland Security is buying so much ammo (My Working Theory)
Sales. They must keep their inventory built up. Jihadis and drug cartels need boolets.
Do a physical inventory. Bet they don’t have them.
It's "free" to them and they think it's theirs.
Am I wrong for taking advantage? Probably. Do I regret it? No.
The question that always arises when I read things like this is: “And what are we going to do about it?”
DHS has the same amount of ammo as would have kept US forces in Iraq shooting for 28 years. They have the same personnel strength as the USMC and TWICE their budget.
“We should have it JUST IN CASE” —same thing small towns said when they all went and got SWAT teams with fancy ninjya kook gear.
WHAT HAPPENED NEXT?
We all know, and our dogs know, too.
Does the admin have to answer ANY questions from the Legislature, or not?
**WHY** DO WE HAVE A LEGISLATURE? As things currently stand this is unclear to me.
This is a treacherous time for patriots. The government will be all too happy if it succeeds in catalyzing large-scale demonstrations. Historically leftists have used situations like that to their benefit by putting in provocateurs and then tarring the whole group with the actions of the fake conservatives. We saw a lot of that during the tea party rallies during the first Obama administration. This time they will have huge stores of ammo and so their provocateurs can commit acts of violence and destruction of property that will dwarf the Occupy movement’s bad acts.
Can you imagine how much money could be made right now black marketing DhS bullets?
