Federal Government buying enough ammo for "24-year war"

Read this, or Google it for yourself and multiple articles will pop up in the news section.

This isn’t fear mongering. As with any information, you should digest it and apply it in your life where you see fit. The spread of information is important, regardless of its subject.

Looking forward to hearing your thoughts on this.

You mean The Nine Years’ War. Don’t forget to take your soma.

A different take on the issue:

http://hosted.ap.org/dynamic/stories/U/US_GOVERNMENT_AMMO?SITE=AP&SECTION=HOME&TEMPLATE=DEFAULT

After reading both articles, I feel it’s unlikely that there is truly some sort of grand conspiracy to prepare for “the collapse of our financial system.” I severely doubt anyone in our government would even like to admit that the collapse is a looming possibility, let alone prepare our domestic armed forces for it.

@lukashjanssen, Yes, in fact there is an alternative explanation in the article I posted which states: “The government’s only official explanation for the massive ammo buy is that law enforcement agents in the respective agencies need the bullets for “mandatory quarterly firearms qualifications and other training sessions.”

When there are separate nations with individual interest war is a certainty.

@lukashjanssen, that article is from the Associated Press, i.e. mainstream media.

we all know that the MM does not report the real story.

Haha.. Thats the agenda? Ban guns and buy ammo. Hello! People are homeless, hungry, and uneducated. Spend our money on things that actually apply to us! Haha.. excuse me, just raging..

@mosesonator, true. I take your point that AP is biased and lies closer to the mainstream than the other source. however, I believe that WND clearly has its own bias (in perhaps a more populist, conspiratorial slant). I posted the second article to provide some degree of journalistic holism. It’s always important to view all sides of an issue (or a news story)

@winslow, here’s my agenda……..politicians can do whatever they please with their term. They can play as much golf, spend as much money, party as much as they want, and bicker as much as they want. They can work to solve problems as much or as little as they please. BUT….if the issues are not solved by the time their term ends, the penalty is……castration. They did not have the balls to get over their egos, to work on what they promised to do, they had our trust and abused it. So why should they have balls at all?

Snip snip, Mr. senators. Snip snip.

@theskafish, hahaha, that’s a novel idea. If we truly had an accountability system like that in place, there’d be almost no one who would want the job! We’d only have people who are committed heart and soul to the betterment of the nation.
because, really, would you put your balls on the line when the judging body at the end of your term was… the uneducated masses of the United States?

@lukashjanssen, we all know that every speaker has a bias. please stop trying to steer the conversation away from the core issue.

Homeland Security buying so many bullets of late is not a good thing, no matter what ‘journalistic holism’ you try to post.

Just another conspiracy nut case, not worth getting worried about.

@scott3600 if you think its a ‘conspiracy’, then please explain your reasons for defending the DoHS.

No, this IS fear mongering. It’s called paranoia, and it’s been around as long as humans have. They aren’t saving up bullets in preparation for war, they’re doing it because they’re afraid one might happen. Fuck conspiracies.

I was sketched out at first, but in contrast to the rest of the world I feel like it’s safe to assume they’re on our “team.” They could be stock piling ammo to protect us against everyone else who’s pissed off in the world right now or even to make sure sh*t doesn’t completely hit the fan in the event the economy tanks violently. Either way I don’t think we are personally in any danger, the worst that might happen is martial law, but I’d prefer that over gangs declaring war on people’s houses any day

@mikeyw829 sounds like a self fulfilling prophecy to me.

The US government is increasing its domestic stock of weapons while simultaneously reducing that of the people. Does this really seem okay to you?

ivel (0) (@ivel) 8 years, 9 months ago ago

@mosesonator They aren’t reducing the peoples stock pile of weapons though. They are simply in discussions to place more gun control laws in place. For instance, police will be required to be present at Gun Shows in order to do background checks on those who wish to purchase weapons.

I don’t see anything wrong with that, it should have been done in the first place. I don’t recall hearing anything about them banning the use of rifles or fire-arms, or taking them away from people.

“but also engage in a prolonged, domestic war.

Yeah, or a war with dinosaurs. Or extraterrestrials. Or Africans. Or [insert conspiracy theory here].

I don’t know why they are buying ammunition. IT obviously isn’t going to be a good reason. It may be more economical than we think, however. If we buy all the ammo, the supply drops and the price rises making it more difficult for other countries to obtain it.

I can’t read minds, though, so maybe they do want to enforce a police state, but to claim that that is the most probably outcome is a bit ridiculous.

@mikeyw829, Why would you ever make a statement like that? “They’re just afraid it might happen”? You have no clue why they’re doing it. Neither do any of us.

Mosesonator (52) (@mosesonator) 8 years, 9 months ago ago

@ivel, its gone beyond ‘talks’. Didn’t you know that Obama has already issued 23 executive orders to curb gun violence (i.e. gun ownership)? Executive orders are a shady aspect of governance, as the constitution doesnt specifically allow for such modern day decrees. (near the fall of the Roman empire, emperors also ruled by decree / executive order. Obama’s administration depends on his abuse of EOs. this has nothing to do with the conversation, just an interesting fact)

You say you agree with cops being at gun shows, and sure, that sounds reasonable. but this is just one of the 23 executive orders. Have you read through all 23? most of it is aimed at reducing a person’s ability to legally possess a firearm – NOT to ‘reduce gun violence’. Read the EOs, brush up on your international politics and read between the lines – this campaign is aimed at disarming the American people, not helping them.

It’s no coincidence that this effort is timed with DoHS bullet hoarding. Can’t we acknowledge the hypocrisy?
