There has been a lot of talk over the past six months about all of the ammunition and assault rifles that the Department of Homeland Security (DHS) has been buying. Just last week, in fact, Representative Jason Chaffetz of Utah questioned the DHS about what the Congressman called “massive” bullet buys.
Chaffetz, the chair of one of the House of Representatives oversight subcommittees, said that DHS currently has more than 260 million rounds of ammunition in stock, which represents approximately 1,000 rounds more per person than the U.S. Army has.
Lawmakers have been increasingly interested in these buys, demanding to know if the government has reason to believe that it will need the ammo to counter civil unrest or whether it might be trying to create a bullet shortage.
Nick Nayak, chief procurement officer for DHS, says that neither of those fears is warranted and that the department merely needs the bullets for target practice for their agents. If I could use that response as fertilizer, I’d have the best looking lawn on my block.
But let’s just say for a moment that we take the government at its word on that. How does DHS explain its recent retrofitting of 2,717 armored vehicles for use on U.S. streets? If that isn’t preparation for potential civil unrest, I don’t know what is. So, the question becomes, what do they know that we don’t know?
In my opinion, the answer to that question is “nothing.” Based on the state of the economy, the potential for financial disaster from ObamaCare, and the swirling rumors regarding food shortages and rising food prices, I think we know exactly what the government is preparing for.
Take a look at this InfoWars.com article, “Government Arms Race Kicks Into High Gear as DHS Buys 2,700 Armored Vehicles for Streets of America.” If it looks like a duck and quacks like a duck…well, you know the rest. Remember when DHS was created as an agency to fight against foreign terrorists that sought to harm Americans? Apparently, those were the good old days. Now the agency seems to be gearing up for a conflict against Americans.
Why do you think DHS officials have been stockpiling so many bullets, assault rifles and armored vehicles? What are they gearing up for? Is it something they know is coming, such as economic collapse? Or is it something they will launch themselves, such as a campaign to take away Americans’ guns? Or is it something else? Please chime in with your opinions.
