What is Homeland Security doing with a BILLION rounds of ammunition?

Here’s where it’s going, but no explanation of how the department intends to use so much (more ammunition than has been fired in the war in Iraq to date, and I understand that was a busy place). Homeland has purchased  hollow point bullets, by the way, which are outlawed under the Geneva Convention, so any surplus can’t be given to or used by the military – domestic use only, which makes me, at least, wonder what it’s all for?

Mental defectives have a right to a representative in government, too!

Mental defectives have a right to be represented in government, too!

Here in the Nutmeg state the Democrat Senate Majority Leader with the entirely appropriate name of Martin Looney wants to register and regulate buyers of ammunition. “A gun without ammunition is only a club. We really need to restrict access to ammunition,” Looney said.

Looney almost certainly has no idea that felons are already barred by federal law from buying ammunition, but I wonder whether he’s aware of exactly how much gunpowder and lead is now, thanks to Homeland Security, waiting to be stolen (by felons, probably). If you believe that a government agency can keep track of a billion of anything: dollars, bullets or vacation spending by the president, then you have a far greater faith in bureaucracy than I do. Or you’re a Democrat.

    Hey Looney: in the words of Andy Dufresne, how can you be so obtuse?

    What a myopic buffoon.

    They’ve been putting things in place for the conquest of America for a long time, and the time is nigh. Why do you think they want your guns.

    From the Reese Committee Hearings — article and video:
    “Whistleblower Norman Dodd exposed the Congressional investigation into Tax Free Foundations that the most powerful robber baron families tried to sweep under the carpet. The Ford Foundation, the Rockefeller Foundation, the Carnegie Foundation and others were clearly funding programs and directives that would transition the United States from its Constitutional form of government into collectivism, that would allow the vast territory to be ‘comfortably merged with the Soviet Union.’…”

    The “former” Nazi Pope thinks it’s a good idea. But then the word Catholic means universal, as in universal or global control, and in the early years was a join or die organization (read Elaine Pagels “Gnostic Gospels, availabel free online in pdf):

    “The leader of the Catholic Church, Pope Benedict XVI, has called for the establishment of World Government and a New World Order.

    In a speech made at the Pontifical Council for Justice and Peace on Monday December 3 2012, the Pope called for the “construction of a world community, with a corresponding authority,” to serve the “common good of the human family”…”

    The are preparing for the day — article and video:
    “…a North Carolina Police Lieutenant calls in to give his first hand knowledge of preparations being made within his own department to train and prepare for martial law in the United States, possibly in the coming year. Many similar reports are starting to trickle in from all across the country, through various independent media resources and even organizations like Oath Keepers. The consensus is that a major economic event is expected, and that it will be used to provide cover…”

    Dude –
    The esteemed Fourth Estate was meant to be the watchdog against corrupt government. Instead it has become a lapdog advocate, putting at risk all this country was founded on.

    The MSM doesn’t ask the hard questions on any liberal. They have become an advocate, rather than an objective, fact finding body, meant to keep the government honest. They are no longer an asset of freedom, but rather they are a threat. They have lost all pretense of objectivity. It is a disgrace.

    Why no reporting or coverage on what really happened in Benghazi, and why we allowed a U.S. Ambassador to be killed?

    Why no MSM coverage on “Fast and Furious”, which was sponsored by the DOJ, to advance gun control in the US, and resulted in the death of ATF agents?

    Why no MSM coverage over the fact Barry was a citizen of Indonesia, and went to college on a US funded foreign exchange program?

    Why no coverage that the states with the strictest gun laws have the highest incidence of gun violence?

    Why no coverage on the rampant voter fraud perpetrated by the Democratic Party?

    Why no coverage of Barry’s blatent homosexuality? NTTAWWT:

    Why no coverage on why DHS is buying BILLIONS of bullets? Because they are a tool of the Government. You tool.

    Is it like this on your home planet, Upyouranus? Or have you gotten past that? And did they ever even question you on why you shot JFK?

    You loser.
    Your Pal,

    Valerie Jarrett, Janet Napolitano, and Eric Holder are preparing to murder Americans, on a large scale, as specifically suggested by Obama confidante Bill Ayers.

    Looney is a minor useful idiot.

    Buckle up. It will be sporty.

      And enforced at the point of a gun. At least we’ll know whose bullets they are — thanks to junk science, tailored to fit any desired result (sort of like global warming):

      “CABL – Compositional Analysis of Bullet Lead – was originally proposed as a means to be able to link a bullet recovered from a crime with a box of ammunition that may be, or may have been, in the possession of a suspect.

      The theory was that the precise chemical composition of any particular melt of lead used to make bullets made it unique and distinguishable from all others. The compositional testing was most commonly done by the FBI lab. Many people were convicted of fire-arms-based crimes based upon this theory.

      However, when real science started focusing effort on this issue, it was determined that two different melts of lead could, in fact, be compositionally indistinguishable…” [duh]

    Barry expects come “resistance”. He has no fuckin’ idea how much.
    Come and get it.

  7. Tis, tis. I’m disappointed at the lack of factual backup. Though they have procured tremendous amounts of ammunition,45,000,000 ( April 2012), not 1,000,000,000 under Home Land Security, they stated that it was to support 135,000 armed security personnel within the 9600 various agencies. These co mingled number of users and groups should really concern you; that is really a Big Brother operation under way.

    Just to humor your number though, one billion rounds would be in excess of “four hundred million dollars (federal procurement rates); that’s for just the purchase, excluding storage, allocation, use, recycling on and on. Therefore it becomes difficult to hide “that” line item.

    Regardless, look at all those numbers. Everyone of them are under the auspices of protecting America. That in itself makes me wonder who they are protecting themselves from versus protecting US/us from “those.”

    With such bloated, inflated numbers you portray, the only credible response is that your credibility in accuracy comes into question, and squelches the merits of your other comments.

      DHS FY 2012 budget was $60.4 billion. The ammo is just barely a rounding error.

      The US military in Iraq uses about 75 million rounds per year of all calibers.

      Janet Napolitano’s thugs have ordered 1 billiion rounds of handgun hollow points. Even 45 million rounds of handgun hollow points is a lot. Who are they planning to shoot?

      The Communist anti-Constitutional gun-grabbers have the game theory of provocation/reaction confiscation scenarios more thoroughly analyzed than the US military analyzed ALL possible scenarios for holding the Fulda Gap. Holder’s Fast and Furious didn’t work to change public opinion, but the coverup worked beautifully. Feinstein has had her anti-Constitutional gun grab bill in the works for a year, as though part of a master plan. The DeGette/McCarthy standard capacity magazine ban was just pulled off the shelf, completely ready to go.

      This Administration and its totalitarian plans are pure evil.

      Eric Holder sent the Mexican cartels guns. Janet Napolitano is providing the ammo.

    Wow, do you guys read what you write? Sounds like a bunch of looney old men who have had too much to drink.

    I do like the limits on ammo idea – nothing about ammo in the second amendment. Of course, it will make my shooting lesson thatuch more expensive, but what the heck!

    • AJ

      Nothing in the second amendment about ammo? You mean: with your right comes responsibility (an abstract word that should set off alarm bells whenever you hear it), meaning an inability to exercise that right. If you like the limits on ammo idea, then write your congressman, they’re the ones buying all the bullets, and they’re not the kind you’d use for target practice. Stop being suppliant, time to become defiant.

      • Artie

        What are you really afraid of? Be honest.

        • I’m afraid of guys like you who always say “trust me”, well until my life, my family, my possessions are put in consequential jeopardy. Then you say, the loss is sad, but……………
          California has one of the most restrictive gun laws in the country. As a Californian I don’t have a problem with that.

          What I do have a problem with is California releasing 40,000 convicted felons on early release, this year 2012 without probation followup or restrictions. Its their squeeze to cause panic with the citizens and get more funds that they frivolously waste.

          What I have a problem with is California this year passing a law allowing security personnel and retired police officers having the right to purchase and hold armament outlawed to the public, and the law further restricting the law abiding citizen.

          What I have a problem with is California restricting the law abiding citizenry, while criminals can have at you.

          What I have is the knee jerk reaction from politicians who move to the movement, ultimately restricting those further who candidly don’t need the restriction.

          What I really have a problem with is someone else restricting my right to procure, retain reasonable protective measures, then having a memorial on my behalf- a lot of good that does me, after the fact

          What I have a problem with would be a further inability, not restrictive gun measure, but he inability to protect my family from the evil out there that wants what I have. So next time, in a catastrophic emergency when the police cant get there think twice about something you’d need for life protection. Even now under good conditions there is a minimum of 30 minutes or more before arrival, so their participation becomes an “after the fact” moment.

          How about adding 10 years no parole to any criminal caught, convicted of a crime with a weapon. Get em off the streets then talk to me about further control, for I’ll know my family is a bit safer
          Good luck.
          Next time please consider all the issues of resolve before you consider me as the sacrificial lamb for a cause that hasn’t thought it through.
