According to one estimate, since last year the Department of Homeland Security has stockpiled more than 1.6 billion bullets, mainly .40 caliber and 9mm. DHS also reportedly purchased 2,700 Mine Resistant Armor Protected Vehicles (MRAPs) to go with their bullet stockpile.
ATK is one company that won a contract with the Department of Homeland Security to provide 450 million rounds of .40 caliber ammunition in 2012.
The Department of Homeland Security approved two more $4.5 million contracts for more weapons and ammo recently.
The Obama File reported:
Dave Gibson is reporting that on Monday, the Department of Homeland Security (DHS) posted details of a no bid contract with weapons manufacturer Sig Sauer, worth $4.5 million over the next five years.
The contract is identical to the one DHS announced last week with Heckler & Koch.
Both contracts are for $900,000 worth of “replacement parts” a year, for weapons used by DHS agents.
While it is hard to imagine how or why a domestic agency could anticipate firing their weapons enough over the next five years to need $1.8 million annually in replacement parts, the DHS documents clearly state their need to “stock sufficient quantities of parts needed to fulfill the quantities of parts anticipated to be ordered.”
In April 2012, DHS purchased $143,000 worth of submachine guns from Heckler & Koch.
Exactly what plans does the department of Homeland Security have for all this military stuff? Just look at their recent purchases:
And why all the armed military exercises, using choppers firing automatic weapons (using blank ammunition) and tanks, being conducted in Los Angeles, Boston, Chicago, St. Louis, Minneapolis, Miami, and Houston?
And why did the U. S. Army publish a January directive to use drone fleets in the U.S. for “training missions and domestic operations.”
Why did the National Security Agancy refuse to declassify Obama’s executive order that would allow the government to deploy the military within the United States for the sake of cybersecurity.
Good article. We have alot to think about.
Rhetorically…Why? The answer is unequivocally, a tactical military buildup for a military conflict...to conquer and subdue a military opponent.
It appears their Intel has revealed more resistance than previously thought and supplies are being beefed up for an operational and overwhelming first strike and/or longer conflict than previously figured.
Although, the latest order for bullets appears not so much for rifles. The order for machine guns is duly noted.
Isn’t that type of firearm…. what the liberals call……ASSAULT WEAPONS?
I think Obama is getting geared up for an uprising of patriots. Sig Heil Herr Adolph Obama.
Walks like a duck, talks like a duck... etc, etc... certainly cause for 'major preparation' on all our part. BTW, a movie is available on DVD now, called "The Hunger Games" and, yes only a movie, it will give you IMPETUS to Train harder! Very accurate portrayal of "our mutual enemies" and you WILL see 'groups' you know. It may prompt you to 'do more.' God Bless America!
I think they are plotting to have all the pieces in place before they collapse the economy
Hence the big push /rush to ban guns (Connecticut committee just approved a proposed ban on assault weapons)
Then DHS will start using those bullets against Tea Party/conservatives etc.
There is a big rally (pro 2nd amendment) in Syracuse NY March 23.
I have to agree with Louise B. JNeff
That is good of them to get this ammo for us.
I like your thinking.
The Gov. is going to bankrupt the amunition and firearm manufacturers by dumping the DHS stockpile at bargain basement rates. No income for a protracted period means bankrupsy for the weapons business.
There isn't ANYTHING to talk about...keep your powder dry...you'll need it.
Other than that, we will have LOTS of ammo once "they" start running away.
