When the Department of Homeland Security Buys Ammo, So Do I

What is it with the Department of Homeland Security buying so much ammunition? Is the agency expecting an invasion of some kind? Is al Qaeda planning an uprising that we’re not being told about?

With all the gun owners in America, why do we need an agency like the DHS to fight an Islamic insurgency? The Muslims know millions of Americans are armed. They wouldn’t dare attempt to take over America from the inside.

So what’s the real reason the Department of Homeland Security has put in a bid for “26.1 million rounds of ammunition, adding to the 1.6 billion bullets it has already purchased over the past 10 months alone”? I’m a little suspicious, especially when questions about the ammunition purchases go unanswered.

Any time I hear stories like this, I buy another gun (picking up two today) and more ammunition. I’m not paranoid. It’s designed to make a statement. I don’t like to be pushed.

Being eternally vigilant is the watchword of the day. I don’t trust our government. That’s a hard thing to say, but it’s the truth. I know a majority of voting Americans gave another four years to Barack Obama, but I’ll bet anybody that 80 percent of them have no idea what he’s politically capable of if he can convince them to give him more authority and power to act to bypass Congress.

Congress? They’re in it for the power. They believe they are better than us. too many Republicans wish they had some of the power Obama is throwing around.

Here’s a list of what the DHS is looking to purchase. It’s scary:

• Commercial Leading Training Ammo (CLTA) pistol cartridge .40 caliber 165 Grain, jacketed Hollow point (JHP) pp/n P4OHSTS3G OR EQUAL. BRASS CASING 100,000 ROUNDS PRICE PER 1000 ROUNDS WILL INCLUDE DELIVERY.

• Commercial Leading Training Ammo (CLTA) 9MM 115 GRAIN JACKETED HOLLOW POINT P/N 9BP-115 GRAIN JHP OR EQUAL BRASS CASING 100,000 ROUNDS PRICE PER 1000 ROUNDS WILL INCLUDE DELIVERY.

• Commercial Leading Training Ammo (CLTA) PISTOL CARTRIDGE 9MM BALL 124 GRAIN P/N AE9AP OR EQUAL BRASS CASING 40,000 ROUNDS PRICE PER 1000 ROUNDS WILL INCLUDE DELIVERY

What’s going on here? DHS chief Janet Napolitano is never going to tell us. The Republicans are sitting on their hands figuring out how they can get reelected in 2014 and capture the White House in 2016. They don’t want to sound paranoid and be labeled right wing nuts. They have to attend cocktail parties with the Democrats and Karl Rove.

Do you remember the DHS study that was leaked in 2012 that targets Americans who are “suspicious of centralized federal authority” and revere “individual liberty”? They were described — that is, we were described —as “extreme right-wing” terrorists.

These “targets” are from the 2011 study entitled Profiles of Perpetrators of Terrorism. Here’s a list of what they’re looking for in domestic terrorists. Do you know anybody who might qualify?:

  • Americans who believe their “way of life” is under attack.
  • Americans who are “fiercely nationalistic (as opposed to universal and international in orientation).”
  • People who consider themselves “anti-global” (presumably those who are wary of the loss of American sovereignty).
  • Americans who are “suspicious of centralized federal authority.”
  • People who “believe in conspiracy theories that involve grave threat to national sovereignty and/or personal liberty.”

There’s even a category for people who oppose abortion.

Now if I can only find enough space to store my ammunition.

    You won’t see this data on the US evening news,or hear politicians disseminating this information.
    Guns in the hands of honest citizens save lives and propertyand, yes, gun-control laws adversely affect only the law-abiding citizens.
    Take note my fellow Americans, before it’s too late!Gun registration just makes it easy for the FEMA, Department of Homeland Security, IRS agents to come and confiscate your weapons.
    FEMAwas never intended to help disaster victims (super storm Sandy victims), DHS was never intended to protect American citizens, and the

    16,000 new IRS agents authorized by Obamacare are all there to plunder and tyrannize American citizens.
    There are FEMA concentration camps throughout the USA, complete with gas chambers, watch towers, razor
    wire fencing, railroad tracks ready and waiting for all dissenters of the plutocratic, communistic, socialistic, Satanic, corporatist,
    oligarchic tyranny of the New World Order, the one world Satanic totalitarian military police state dictatorship, Agenda 21 of the UnitedNations.
    The American people are literally financing our own enslavement and destruction by paying the IRS’s extortion money.

    This is our ammo guys , we are paying for it its taxpayers money. Janet Napolitano works for us , she has quite a few body guards , but they work for us. Let them buy whatever they want , it will be easier for us to get replenished when we take over. After all the truth we found out on CSpan this week , about Benghazi and drone Strikes , The Obama Administration , leaving Americans to die and not helping the 4 that were murdered , even Panetta & General Depsey admitting the blew it . The days of Obama are coming to an end , Sequestration all the lies on whats going to happen, the cuts in spending , all the 185,000 federal workers Obama Hired will lose their jobs , its about time

    What I have always said as of late is that ONE DAY YOU WILL DIE. Your choices are simple, either die with your boots on or DIE on your knees in a FEMA CAMP, somewhere in a Sh**thole.

    I have also said that I am in no hurry to die or go to war, but I still love my country so I guess that makes me dangerous. SO BE IT !!!

  • Paul Brown

    This islamic pig is expecting another war, right here with the christians and the gun owners. If thats what he wants then bring it on sucka. I don’t give a crap, they still aren’t getting my weapon.

    The Federal government has declared war on American citizens. They are openly hostile to everyone who loves freedom. Everyone needs to access their own hearts and souls to determine how far and what price they are willing to pay for freedom. We need to do it now not tomorrow or the next day. We have little time.

  • 1776rtbl

    The Federal Govt. Has shown open agression and hostility to freedom loving Americans. They are bringing the war to us. They have all the money and resources and are preparing to defeat us openly and defiantly.

    They are bringing the fight to us, to our door steps. They are the terrorists!

    I have bought a 30-06 with a 8 round clip and a 7x scope. I am going to get a .38 pistol and plenty of ammo for both. I am a member of the NRA for over 40 years. I am also a member of Oath Keepers for 3 years. I took an oath to protect and defend the Constitution from all enemies, here and abroad. I will do this until my last breath.

  • Chuck

    how can you buy ammo if it’s no where to be found?

    this is the one sector of the economy outside of the legal system that is booming!

    A fellow new to firearms once asked “what do you do to make it absolutely safe?” I told him “it’s a gun, it’s dangerous. Thats what it is you gotta keep that in mind all the time. Thats how you keep it safe.” The same thing applies to REAL American patriots. They are like guns, they are dangerous and you gotta remember that all the time. Thats how you make us safe. Protect the rights of the people, honor the oaths you take, stand for folks not on them, listen to the people who elect you. Simple realy.

    When a government, any government, does the sort of things that this one has done, and is caught in so many blatant lies, people do have a tendency to be concerned.

  • C K Johnson

    All of the federal government is seeing that there are 75 to 100 million . Legal citizens that are armed and ready to keep our Constitution alive.
