Feds Buy 2 Billion
Rounds of Ammunition

Breitbart´s Big Government, by William Bigelow

Original Article

Posted By:KarenJ1, 2/18/2013 12:46:05 PM

Something strange is going on. Federal non-military agencies have bought two billion rounds of ammunition in the last 10 months. The Obama Administration says that federal law enforcement agents need the ammunition for “mandatory quarterly firearms qualifications and other training sessions.” Radio show host Mark Levin is suspicious. He commented: To provide some perspective, experts estimate that at the peak of the Iraq war American troops were firing around 5.5 million rounds per month. At that rate, the [Department of Homeland Security] is armed now for a 24-year Iraq war. A 24-year Iraq war!

Comments:
It is so tiring being unsettled all the time about what is happening in this country. The sad reality is that there is very little, if anything, I can do about it.

Agree, OP. Every day another thing to worry about.
BUT this is what we get with 4 more years of Obama, so we must reach deep down for strength to always be one step ahead.
When I feel beaten down, I think back to the conditions of our ancestors during the Revolution, walking on snow and ice with nothing but rags on their feet, leaving trails of blood. They were up to the task, and shall we because we are Americans.

The concern is not so much about patriots in DHS being armed. In case of civil war, they will not fire on their neighbors, fellow patriots. If Obama is openly pushing for civil war, the patriots would get that ammo to us by the ton.

The real concern is that Obama has an army of radical, anti-American, anti-capitalist, anti-Jewish, anti-Christian jihadists. And the bullets may already be in their custody!!

Who is guarding the ammo?

“mandatory quarterly firearms qualifications and other training sessions.” Really? With hollow-points? Wait a minute, what exactly are "other traing sessions?"

Hey, they work for us right? What could possibly go wrong? It´s only right that Federal non-military should practice alot. s/o

´Suspicious´ doesn´t describe it. The *majority* of this ammo - from a year´s reporting now - is HOLLOW POINT AMMUNITION BANNED IN INTERNATIONAL WARFARE.

Thus we have an administration who won´t even act mildly tough with our *actual* enemies...

Stockpiling ammo with no other purpose (tho´ the Feds have claimed repeatedly, ´Hey, it´s just for target practice!) other than *shredding* anything it hits, and no targets in sight besides the American public.

And the jackass-in-chief thinks American citizen will ´give up´ any effective means of self-defense?

This is your government on drugs. *Strong* drugs...

You have to ask yourself WHY? WHY do the feds need 2 billion rounds?

It´s how they are handling Gun Control. Ok, they are too pansy to submit a bill on gun control, so they will just buy up all of the ammo.

I purchased some ammo today, but not all that I needed.

The Gov´t is trying to control us, without a doubt.

What no 7 said.... I was looking online today and not a round of 22 long rifle anywhere.

My local store is out of everything but shotshells and some esoteric rounds. No .38, 45 or 9mm to be found.

If you can find it, buy it...

If half the 300 million in this country is Republican that´s about 13 rounds to pump into each one of us. That should quell any opposition.

The stores near me ration the amount of ammunition that individuals can buy. I don´t blame the stores as they´re only trying to ensure that no one person buys ALL of their stock.

I would dearly love to see the ammunition manufacturers ration sales to the Fed. If they were smart they´d realize that if push comes to shove, then the Fed will NOT be their friend.

Wrong. This is debunked here:

http://senseofevents.blogspot.com/2013/02/dhs-buying-billions-of-rounds-not-so.html

People mistook the pricing quantity (1000 rounds) for the number of shipments. In fact, DHS was buying 240,000 rounds, not 2 billion rounds.

I don´t readily believe they´re buying all the ammo to create a shortage for gun owners. The shortage will be short lived, unless they plan to buy them up for the indefinate future which I think is unlikely.

I see the ammo purchases as complementary to their purchase of large quantities of auto and semi-auto weaponry, communications gear, medical supplies, armored transport vehicles, etc.

Remember how Obama wanted a domestic fighting force as powerful as the military? I think DHS is building such a force. I think it´ll be a three tier force, comprised of the federal law enforcement agencies (with DHS leading it), state law agencies, and local law agencies, with DHS leading the three tier cooperative effort.

I think the ammo will be stockpiled, along with all the other materials being purchased, at various locations around the country. I suspect they´ll be located at federal, state, and local facilities in key locations.

The other day I saw a headline (didn´t get into the article) about a confidential informant inside DHS who said the agency is practicing to deal with a general uprising of the population.

Also, the other day I watched a 30 minute video on the current "Global Currency War" we´re involved in, and actually created, through our recent QE1 and QE2 printing of money, and still there are calls for a QE3. We´ve devalued our currency by around 20% which helps us pay our international debts and other countries are beginning to fight back by doing the same with their currency. And, a global race begins to have the cheapest currency.

Acording to the video, the two prior currency wars created the Great Depression, WW2, and the economic stagnation of the 1970s. The video further explained how currency wars ruin people´s savings and investments which could also result in civil unrest and upheaval, and international war.

When the population´s money is turned into worthless paper by the political class, how would the population react? Would there be a general uprising?

Lastly, there was an article the other day about a litmus test that Obama is putting to high-ranking military officers wanting to move up. According to the article, the litmus test is asking the officer if, under a certain scenario, he could order troops to fire on citizens.

I get the feeling that something wicked is coming this way.

It is to eliminate mass numbers of US citizens. "punish your enemies", "eliminate the opposition", "revenge" are oft spoken words by this regime. They have no desire to keep anyone around who does not adhere to the party line. We are now living under Pravda on the Potomac, and every other tin pot dictatorship since time immemorial.

OK, some of these comments are just kooky. Just sayin´.

However,one thing I´m not hearing, is what of these ammo manufacturers? Don´t you think that if someone who is a big shot in one of these companies would see a huge red flag when our Gummint is buying up (or submitting purchase orders for) so much ammo? Wouldn´t the Gummint submit to open bidding for a purchase of this size? This doesn´t pass the smell test to me. I´ll have to buy some ammo and get the low down on what is really going on.

Sooo tired of this tinfoil hat screed.
So they put out a call for bid on a huge number of ammo to be delivered over 4-5 years and ATK got the contract for most of it.

The real question is, what was delivered so far and did they actually used it up in training as they were supposed to.

State to send voter registration

Heading off a lawsuit over compliance with a federal voting rights law, California officials have agreed to help millions of state residents register to vote. Under a deal announced Monday by several voting-rights groups, the state will send voter registration cards to nearly 3.8 million Californians who have applied for health insurance under the Affordable Care Act. The move will ensure that many residents can complete or update their registration in time for the June 3 primary election, representatives of the groups said, and bring the state into compliance with the National Voter Registration Act of 1993.

Professional Janitorial Service (PJS), the largest non-union janitorial company in Houston, and the Service Employees International Union (SEIU) haven’t gotten along for seven years. The company is currently suing SEIU for $9 million, alleging that the union has repeatedly slandered it.

President Barack Obama´s healthcare law may have been responsible for pushing whites to vote Republican and polarizing the country at historic levels, according to a new Gallup analysis. On the four-year anniversary of Obamacare, the implication of the Gallup study is that Obama´s policies--not his race or personality--have been the impetus for the increasing level of racial polarization. The Gallup study found that in 2010, "nonwhites´ net party identification and leanings showed a 49-point Democratic advantage, and whites were 12 percentage points more Republican than Democratic." That "resulting 61-point racial and ethnic gap in party preferences is the largest Gallup has measured

London - A remarkable piece of high-tech data detective work has provided what looks to be the missing clue to the tragic fate of missing Malaysia Airlines Flight MH370, an expert said Monday. Malaysian Prime Minister Najib Razak earlier on Monday said that information provided by British satellite company Inmarsat and the British government´s Air Accidents Investigation Branch (AAIB) confirmed that MH370 had flown to a remote part of the Indian Ocean where the flight ended. (Snip) Inmarsat had come up with a theory to apply to the data it had collected from MH370 during the flight, and had then tested the results on aircraft in

Media Matters, the website of choice for Fox News haters everywhere, attacked the cable news network on Monday for using the term “homosexual” in its programming — advancing the peculiar argument that the scientific term has a “pejorative connotation.” The online “media watchdog” contends that calling gay people “homosexual” is “a practice that’s quickly falling out of favor with major news outlets due the term’s often pejorative connotation and frequent use by opponents of LGBT equality.” Fox News, they chide, “has yet to update its language when referring to gay and lesbian people.” Buttressing their argument?

Former President Jimmy Carter is back in the news this week publicizing a new book about women’s rights. But, as is often the case with Carter, he drew more interest for comments he made about Israel and its supporters. When asked on NBC’s Meet the Press yesterday by Andrea Mitchell why it was that Barack Obama never called upon him for advice, he made it clear that the Jewish state was the reason he has been treated like a pariah: I—that’s a hard question– for me to answer—you know, with complete candor. I think the problem was that– that in dealing

A pair of potentially catastrophic cases will be argued before the Supreme Court on Tuesday. These cases are brought by privately held, for-profit corporations that are arguing their religious convictions should preclude them from offering employees the health insurance required by law. Specifically, these private employers don’t want to allow their employees’ insurance to cover some forms of birth control because, contrary to medicaland scientific evidence, they believe some birth control causes abortions. Corporations are not people. Corporations cannot have religious views. If religious rights are extended to corporations, it puts us on a slippery slope where any private company

WASHINGTON — Mitt Romney said Sunday that President Barack Obama is naive when it comes to Russia, has shown "faulty judgment" about Moscow´s intentions and could have done more to try to deter its annexation of Crimea. The 2012 Republican presidential nominee said Obama didn´t have the foresight to anticipate Russia´s moves and should have been working earlier with allies to make clear the penalties that Russia would face if it moved into Ukraine. Romney did acknowledge that such steps may not have been enough though to hold back Russia President Vladimir Putin. "Had we communicated those things, there´s always

First Lady Michelle Obama talked about America as she visited a school today in China. She talked about the American dream: And my story isn’t unusual in America. Some of our most famous athletes, like LeBron James, and artists, like the singer Janelle Monae, came from struggling families like mine, as do many business leaders -- like Howard Schultz. He’s the head of a company called Starbucks, which many of you may have heard of. When Mr. Schultz was a boy his father lost his job, leaving their family destitute. But Mr. Schultz worked hard. He got a scholarship to a

A few weeks ago, I wrote about how the sweeping acceptance of gay marriage in recent years is owed in large part to Christianity. Rejecting the rigidly hierarchical and stratified societies of the ancient world, Jesus Christ taught the equal dignity of all persons, proclaimed that the meek shall inherit the earth, and declared that the last shall be first and the first shall be last. The Western world has been working out the logic of these subversive teachings ever since, with the institutional transformation of marriage being the latest, though surely not the last, example of its social, moral,

WASHINGTON — Spring break was never this dull. First Lady Michelle Obama’s kids finally hit the wall on their whirlwind visit to China, showing signs they’ve nearly reached their limit tagging along with mom as she visits site after site on what’s billed as a “person-to-person” tour. Accompanied by Malia, 15, and Sasha, 12, the first lady on Monday toured Xi’an, an ancient city in the ancestral province of Chinese President Xi Jinping. They inspected the city’s 600-year-old wall, a day after touring the Great Wall near Beijing. Photos show Sasha looking like she’d rather be back home with her pals than hitting the
