The DHS is at it again. It is stockpiling more ammunition. A lot of ammunition. This is from Infowars:
On July 5, the Department of Homeland Security announced on the FedBizOpps.gov website that it plans to buy thirty-six Colt LE901 rifle systems. The latest DHS purchase follows a solicitation issued on July 13 for the purchase of .223 Caliber Remington Enhanced Performance Ammunition in excess of $500,000. The Colt assault weapons are designed to accept the .223 ammunition. . . .
In April, we reported on the DHS awarding contracts to a munitions company for 450 million rounds of .40 caliber hollow point ammunition. Prior to this, the feds awarded Winchester a five year contract for 200 million rounds .40 caliber ammunition.
The question comes to mind: who are the prospective targets? Terrorists? Armed bands of terrorists? From where?
The DHS is also buying bullet-proof guard booths. Lots and lots of guard booths. At last count, 9,300 of them. It plans to buy more.
Who will be shooting at them? Why?
I have a problem imagining sleeper cells of Islamic terrorists inside the USA, waiting for a signal to attack 9,300 guard booths.It’s great for guard booth manufacturers, of course. Their ship has come in.
Congress is not holding hearings on these purchases. We might think that Congressmen would be curious about all this. Why is the DHS stocking up?
If private clubs of American weekend target shooters were doing this, there would be prime time TV news stories for a week. There would be Congressional hearings. But when the DHS does it, no one notices, except for right-wing blog editors.
This is part of a long-term plan. The DHS has not been asked to comment on this plan. Is it spending this money only because it can? If so, the waste is enormous. The fact that the DHS is getting away with this indicates that senior members of Congress have been informed of the reason for it. The reason is not ready for prime time.
If the DHS is wise in laying up weapons, then who else is laying up weapons? Why?
