Why the Goverment is Buying Up All the Ammo

By | March 16, 2013

While the mainstream media is covering Obama’s re-election, the sequester and the new pope, the government is buying up 1.6 billion rounds of ammunition. There have been several theories about this all of which is possible:

1) When Obama first came into office he mentioned about having a civilian army bigger than our regular army starting in the low teens up to age 50.This frightened me when I first heard it and brought up images of Hitler’s brown shirts. The media has since covered this up. Obama’s speech about that can be found below in the link about the government buying up all the ammo. Could what we see happening now in the Department of Homeland Security be the beginning of Obama’s dream and our constitutional nightmare? He made the campaign promise to build this $439 billion domestic army, but all references to the initiative were inexplicably deleted from the copy of his speech posted on his website while others mysteriously disappeared from transcripts of the speech distributed by the campaign. That was strange – and ominous.

It was first proposed by then Bush administration Defense Secretary Robert Gates. On that basis alone Obama named Robert Gates as his defense secretary. We never heard another mention of Obama’s “civilian national security force” again. Not in 2008, 2009, 2010, 2011 or 2012.

But that brings us up to 2013 and the highly unusual stockpiling of firearms and ammo by Homeland Security – firearms and ammo that Obama would like to deny to ordinary citizens who are not members of his domestic army.

2) In a recent radio interview below, talk radio host Michael Savage interviewed an ammo manufacturer who said the government is re-acting to supply and demand. Since Obama has scared so many people with his inflammatory language about gun control that people are buying up ammunition and guns like never before. They can’t get all the guns so they are buying up all the ammunition so the average person can’t get any.

3) A third possibility is one that has been put forth and reported by talk host Mark Levin and Sarah Palin saying that the government is preparing for a revolution by the people due to the economy going south.

The former Alaska governor and Republican vice-presidential nominee believes the federal government is “stockpiling bullets in case of civil unrest.”

Palin says the feds are afraid of what might happen if the sequester goes into effect.

She writes on her Facebook page: “If we are going to wet our proverbial pants over 0.3% in annual spending cuts when we’re running up trillion dollar annual deficits, then we’re done. Put a fork in us. We’re finished. We’re going to default eventually and that’s why the feds are stockpiling bullets in case of civil unrest.”

The prospect of civil unrest puts a chilling spin on an off-teleprompter remark that I mentioned above when then-candidate Barack Obama said in a Colorado campaign speech in July, 2008,.

“We cannot continue to rely on our military in order to achieve the national security objectives that we’ve set. We’ve got to have a civilian national security force that’s just as powerful, just as strong, just as well-funded,” said candidate Obama.

Radio host Mark Levin echoed Palin’s warnings saying” that federal non-military agencies have purchased enough ammunition recently not only to shoot every American five times but also engage in a prolonged, domestic war.

Why do federal agencies need all that ammunition?

The government’s 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.”

The staggering number and lack of details in the official explanation, however, has led to rampant speculation, including concerns DHS is arming itself to fight off insurrection by Americans.

“To provide some perspective,” Levin noted, “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 [DHS] is armed now for a 24-year Iraq war. A 24-year Iraq war!

Levin went on to say,” I’ll tell you what I think they’re simulating: the collapse of our financial system, the collapse of our society and the potential for widespread violence, looting, killing in the streets, because that’s what happens when an economy collapses.

“I suspect that just in case our fiscal situation, our monetary situation, collapses, and following it the civil society collapses, that is the rule of law, they want to be prepared,” Levin said. “I know why the government’s arming up: It’s not because there’s going to be an insurrection; it’s because our society is unraveling.”

I recently received the following info about why DHS is buying up all the ammo:

The Department of Homeland Security approved two more $450 million contracts for more weapons and ammo recently.

the Department of Homeland Security (DHS) posted details of a no bid contract with weapons manufacturer Sig Sauer, worth $4.5 million over the next five years.
The contract is identical to the one DHS announced last week with Heckler & Koch.
Both contracts are for $900,000 worth of “replacement parts” a year, for weapons used by DHS agents.
While it is hard to imagine how or why a domestic agency could anticipate firing their weapons enough over the next five years to need $1.8 million annually in replacement parts, the DHS documents clearly state their need to “stock sufficient quantities of parts needed to fulfill the quantities of parts anticipated to be ordered.”
In April 2012, DHS purchased $143,000 worth of submachine guns from Heckler & Koch.
Exactly what plans does the department of Homeland Security have for all this military stuff? Just look at their recent purchases:
2,717 Heavy-weapon configured armored vehicles
7,000 “Real” assault weapons
1.6 Billion rounds of ammunition

And why all the armed military exercises, using choppers firing automatic weapons (using blank ammunition) and tanks, being conducted in Los Angeles, Boston, Chicago, St. Louis, Minneapolis, Miami, and Houston?
And why did the U. S. Army publish a January directive to use drone fleets in the U.S. for “training missions and domestic operations.”
Why did the National Security Agancy refuse to declassify Obama’s executive order that would allow the government to deploy the military within the United States for the sake of cyber security.

I report, you decide!
