Homeland Insecurity

To Dell:

The fox news clipping was sarcasm. From your link:

“Within the first month of 2013 we’re talking about the fiscal cliff, we’re talking about sequestration, somehow the Dept of Homeland Security has enough money to buy 22 million rounds of ammunition,” McCurley concluded.

According to the National Rifle Association, the ammunition buy-up should not be cause for concern.

They said: “hollow-points are the defensive ammunition of choice for federal, state and local law enforcement officers across the country, just as they are for private citizens.”

Could it just be that they are fattening during the feast before the famine caused by the sequester?

This is done in the business world too.

Seems both fox and the nra are blowing this off.

To knotbuying it:

No offense. Working off iphone. Not opening every single link. Eyes cant handle it.

With enough ammo to kill for 25 years?

BTW, hollow points are forbidden in war.
 
NRA is saying they don't think DHS is doing the buy up to limit ammo access.
AS far as stocking up for the sequester, problem with that is they have been doing this for quite some time, before Obama invented it.

Security: In addition to stockpiling over a billion bullets and thousands of semiautomatic weapons the feds would deny U.S. citizens, the vehicle of choice for fighting the counterinsurgency war in Iraq is appearing on U.S. streets.
The sequestration question du jour is why the Department of Homeland Security, busy releasing hundreds, if not thousands, of deportable and detained illegal aliens due to budget constraints, is buying several thousand Mine Resistant Armored Protection (MRAP) vehicles?
And just who are they intended to be used against?
This acquisition comes on top of the recent news of the stockpiling by DHS of more than 1.6 billion (with a 'b') bullets of various calibers, enough by one calculation to fight the equivalent of a 24-year Iraq War, and the ordering of some 7,000 5.56x45mm NATO "personal defense weapons" (PDW) — also known as "assault weapons" when owned by civilians.
Additionally, DHS is asking for 30 round magazines that "have a capacity to hold thirty (30) 5.56x45mm NATO rounds."
The Department of Homeland Security (through the U.S. Army Forces Command) recently retrofitted 2,717 of these MRAP vehicles for service on the streets of the U.S. They were formerly used for counterinsurgency in Iraq.
These vehicles are specifically designed to resist mines and ambush attacks. They use bulletproof windows and are designed to withstand small-arms fire, including smaller-caliber rifles such as a .223 Remington. Does DHS expect a counterinsurgency here?

That is what I am asking you for. Purchase orders , sales orders, shipping documentation. I see none of that here or in my own google searches.

Wow. We trust our government so much that we continue to live in denial, as we let them save us from ourselves.
