Why did the Department of Homeland Security buy 2 billion rounds of ammunition?

Anonymous (@) 8 years, 9 months ago

I don’t know about anyone else, but does no one think this is cause for concern? On top of buying enough ammunition to kill every single American 5 times over, the DHS also spent 2 million dollars on practice targets of pregnant women and children holding guns, deemed ‘No More Hesitation’ targets:http://www.infowars.com/dhs-supplier-provides-shooting-targets-of-american-gun-owners/

With all the gun control legislation being passed around, and now this, is anyone else worried? The United States corporatocracy has been slowly chipping away at our rights for the last century. And now with NDAA being passed, a secret facility in Utah to monitor all online information, things do not seem to be going in a very good direction. Events like these are what happens right before a full blown police state. Anyone else? Thoughts? Concerns?

@drakonerythros, since they cant take away our guns.. they want to do the next best thing and buy up all the ammunition so that american gun owners can’t buy as much. The pathetic American government and all the fat white assholes who control it are in panic mode right now.

Nothing for us to worry about, there are over 50 million gun owners in the USA and the active military doesnt even have 3 million people, let alone military personnel willing to attack their neighbors, families, and fellow americans. If anything happens, American gun owners will fuck the government up, and they know it.

Its true theres strength in numbers. Id hate to refer to everyone as us and them, but in this context we greatly outnumber them. Problem is they have drones, we dont. That is all they need anymore.

Eaither preparing for the next World War, or a Zombie Apocalypse.

I mean, If there is pregnant ladies and children zombies running around, why would I want an american with a gun to hesitate.

@iamty, I would like to hope that if the government was actually using the hunter-killer drones on American citizens like they are over in the Middle East, there would be some international back lash. @7dabs, Those are great points. I just don’t understand why there aren’t protests over this shit. This is ridiculous. Does no one care that they can now detain American citizens indefinitely without trial, under the guise of being a ‘terrorist’? Barack Obama justifies his drone strikes by claiming that they are only attacking ‘militants’, without mentioning that all you have to be in order to be a ‘militant’ over there is be male and over the age of 18.

@mentalkink, I appreciate the humor, but I’m trying to keep this on the serious side.

There are protests but not in the appropriate numbers. It is fucking outrageous we have these new laws. NDAA above all, and the reason for the lack of protest is because “This is Amurica! Our government would never betray us!” The majority of people born before the Age of Information have gone there whole lives never considering their government would do such things. Now we have the internet and more younger people are starting to say what the fuck man?

And this is fucking serious. Thats another thing a lot of adults do to me, when i tell them what the NDAA is they make it light hearted and joke about it. Then i bring it back up within the week, they were so dismissive about it they fucking forgot and say “whats the NDAA?” and for someone who understands the implications its fucking frustrating.

@iamty, I hear you. I just started getting into this stuff a few months ago. A friend showed me an article on Operation Northwoods, which if you don’t know what it is, it was a proposed false flag event in the 1960’s in which the military wanted to kill American citizens in several staged ‘attacks’ that would ignite a war with Cuba. You can actually read the government dossier, it’s declassified thanks to the Freedom of Information Act. After I read that, it just made me think, if that’s just the shit that they are showing us, what else are they hiding?

Boyyyy do i know about operation Northwoods. They probably pull that shit all the time. Idk if we did it, but at the very least we LET 9/11 happen, it was so obvious they made huge profits off it. Still are.

@iamty, I completely agree. Honestly, even if it wasn’t a false flag to invade Afghanistan, I wouldn’t have been surprised if it happened for real. The United States Government and military has been dicking around in the Middle East for the last half century, killing god knows how many innocent people in its schemes. I don’t support or condone the actions of the Islamic terrorists, but I certainly understand why they hate America as much as they do.

The idea of this in general just frightens me, but I get more scared over the fact I never know what to believe. With the internet and so many twisted media outlets (Fox News) I have no idea what to think about this.

Kristian Jaded (75) (@mentalkink) 8 years, 9 months ago ago

@drakonerythros, My apologies.

Alright, truthfully, my ideas are that they either know something that we don’t (as in a threat from another county, or a decision was made that is threatening towards other countries)
Also, USA is beginning to loose power, and like a bully on the edge – maybe they feel they need to make up for the people assuming they are falling and failing. Like stated – USA gov could be outnumbered by the residents with guns. So fear?

I really do also agree to the fact that there should be protests going on about this, Its like everyone knows they are doing this, its in the news and all over then internet, but nowone really is asking why the fuck they are not saying the reasoning behind this huge buy.

It sickens me when I think about all the people that know these laws are happening and know what the gov is doing over there and even here to us, and don’t give a shit! The killing for NO goddamn reason, and even here, we can be detained for protesting and be accused of working with the terrorists, THEY CAN LIE AND GET AWAY WITH IT!
I was detained for protesting war a month ago, my sign said something vaguely about war and fact about our gov not telling us everything, we deserve to know-blah blah- and a cop started talking to me asking me why I was there, I said to protect the people of this countries and all of us together in the world. I enjoyed the conversation and I wasn’t prejudice towards cops before this, We talked but than he arrested me when I started THROWING HIS BULLSHIT and regurgitated answers back in his face. Arrested me with ‘suspicion of working with terrorists’ THE FUCK, freedom of speech my ass, he was just all upset because I was defying his regulated answers. I really never said anything that would make anyone assume I was a damn terrorist. He told the other police that I just came back to canada from travel (which was a lie he created) and to detain me. My friend called my parents, they came with my passport and got me out after a long process.

Anyways, sorry for being off topic, But I don’t trust the government, whatever the reason of this, Its not likely good at all. We cannot let them do this to us, we all have to smarten up, educate ourselves, stop letting them win the game they created!

Yeah shit like that really scares me, what a corrupt immature cop. Totall pussy shit. And as far as America losing power, China just surpassed us in scientific development. So i think that may be a huge contribution to whats got the government all hot n bothered trying to come down hard on everything. Its all about power and money to them.

The Dept. of Homeland Security incorporates a lot of different federal agencies, including:

Federal Law Enforcement Training Center
United States Customs and Border Protection
United States Immigration and Customs Enforcement
United States Coast Guard
United States Secret Service

You don’t need to be Sherlock Holmes to understand that these need alot of ammunition, don’t believe the dumb conspiracy theory that they are intending to use it against citizens.

Can people stop fear mongering please, if you want that then start listening to Alex Jones or Fox News or some other crap.

@drakonerythros, What worries me more than this is that you believe INFOWARS is correct and a legitimate and reputable news source. You do know that Alex Jones chats shit all the time right?

Please watch these and see how all this about the Govt. buying ammo and using it against targets of pregnant women is just the same:

@mentalkink, Wow, that’s such bullshit. Unbelievable that you seriously got arrested for doing nothing but displaying your right to protest. Although I bet soon there will be serious crack downs on that, too. Wouldn’t want the majority of the population looking away from their TV shows and iPhones.

@scott3600, So you think that both of these things are completely unrelated and have no correlation at all? Stay deluded.

@drakonerythros, I’m not deluded, i’m just not a paranoid conspiracy theorist. Did you read my earlier post and watch the videos I linked?
Alex Jones and InfoWars are no way reputable and this is no different from any other BS they talk about.

@drakonerythros, btw those are hollow points which arent usually used for target practice. @scott3600, Look at the bread crumbs he is leaving behind and tell me what you think. Patriot act, patriot act II, Fema camps that resemble prison camps, RFID chips, the thousands of tanks they are transporting all around the U.S., the murder of Libyas leader Gaddaffi for wanting to change from U.S. currency to gold standard. The preemptive and illegal war that Obama okay’d without Congress permission against Libya. The U.S. now working with Iraq against Libya (giving the rebels weapons, artillery and transport) drones, SOPA, assassination of U.S. citizens anywhere in the world, refusing to hold a press conferences, the anticipated marital law that military is training for as we speak in for in LA, Miami,, Houston, as well as many others. More than 50 impeachable crimes and counting.. its not a conspiracy anymore this stuff is on record. He is dismantling our Constitution bit by bit. So no telling what this is all leading up to.
Not to mention a foreign policy that can be best described as the turning away of our allies, in particular Great Britain, Israel, Honduras, Poland, Columbia, and Taiwan, and the embracement of our enemies.
Oh and not to mention the suspicious murders of so many conspiracy theorists (their families) and sketchy shootings that suggest Gov. involvement.
…look it up. Thats not even half of it.

@drakonerythros,

i don’t think the US gov would be stupid enough to blatantly attack its own people, they would not win, most people have firearms and if the gov was direct in its oppression they will be battling an army numbering in the millions, and the military would be fighting their own families, no, i think the gov would find itself screwed,

i imagine the buildup is in response to all the shootings and they are entering some sort of prevention training, i wouldn’t immediately assume they are trying to attack us,

[Hidden]
RadiantChild (106) (@rattailbaby) 8 years, 9 months ago ago

@tine, This is exactly how the civil war started out. States like Texas trying to break off from America and such. And all the recent shootings where obviously staged. And coincidentally occurred right before they had to vote on the gun laws.
