Can’t buy groceries? DHS goes on another munitions spree with your money

Tomorrow marks Patriots' Day, a day to commemorate the deaths of innocent Americans at the hands of terrorists.

Sadly, Patriots are considered terrorists by this government. So the government stockpiles more and more ammunition.

In the last week alone, nearly 700 million dollars has been allocated for the purchase of firearms and ammunition by a variety of agencies within the Department of Homeland Security (DHS).

Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE)

This week, ICE has solicited for the purchase of 12 Gauge 00 Buck Reduced Recoil shotgun rounds, made by the Federal Cartridge Corporation. Typically, in a solicitation, a set quantity is established. But in an effort similar to the TSA’s request for over $950,000,000 in explosive storage lockers, only an upper limit dollar amount is provided.

In this case, $524,043.20 has been allocated. At the estimated cost at the first link, that results in approximately 403,110 rounds. If they purchased the same rounds at their local Wal-Mart, then the cost would drop to approximately 26 cents a round or 2,015,550 rounds. But knowing government waste, they’ll probably pay 2 bucks a round and call it a savings.

Customs and Border Protection (CBP)

This week, CBP has requested the purchase of 287 Remington 870 shotguns to augment their armories. According to supporting documentation, only 125 shotguns are being requested. This is either a scrivener's error, or is intentional. The total dollar amount is $159,698.75

Even in the midst of a budget crisis, this government agency has been stocking piling these weapons like a Prepper stockpiles beans and rice.

In September 2009, 200 shotguns were solicited for, but were cancelled the next day.

In May 2010, 170 shotguns were purchased in a sole-source solicitation. No dollar amount was posted with this solicitation.

In August 2011, they purchased 36 shotguns and paid $23,286.24. In the same month, they purchased 700 Remington sniper rifles for “training”. Click on image below for the source document.

CPB has also requested 40,000 rounds 308 Ammunition for their “training”. The Hornady 308 Caliber, 168 Grain A-MAX TAP ammunition was originally designed for law enforcement so that they would have a bullet that would kill bad guys but not beyond the intended target. The light jacket works well on human flesh but fragments upon striking anything substantial, especially brick, concrete, or cars.

The cost of this ammunition ranges from 40 to 48 cents apiece, meaning that on average, CBP is looking to spend over $14,000.

At some point, this must all be explained. Because of the lack of explanation, theories abound.

According to Saul Alinsky’s “Rules for Radicals”
  • “Power is not only what you have, but what the enemy thinks you have.”
  • “Keep the pressure on. Never let up.”
  • “The threat is usually more terrifying than the thing itself.”
  • “If you push a negative hard enough, it will push through and become a positive.”
It seems this administration is living up to the Collectivist ideology. Fear of the unknown is a good weapon, so they use it like a cloak of invisibility. But one day, that cloak will be cast away.

The government "knows" the threat; It is pignorant and ignorant americans who plead,
"not me. not me.
I think you guys are and I am gonna tell on you, so prepare.
They are asking a Big Bitch in Utah to find targets for all the ammo and weapons they have accumulated.
But they will not find them in Utah, the Mormon Empire that is busy searching out its own boogy heretics and helping Big Bitch do her job.
Contrary to those who squirm as if their tampax fell apart whenever NRA membrrship is talked of it will be none of them. as they are and will be busy kissing GI Bootys.
It most assuredly will not be the gays lesbians trans annd undecideds they have their own problems trying to see how tax bills for marriage work.
Could be Americans pet dogs and cats, they been using a lot of them lately as live fire exercise and practice targets. Then they may just want to get rid of their old ammo and to get the New Shiny Bullets.
Can,t be the rednecked biggots hiding in their swamps and forest hidy holes they fear cuz the ammo they want is for shotguns and pistol rounds used in houses and city streets.
Maybe though the 308 Sniper rounds are for that areknowned sniper tactic of Iraq you shoot a kid kbowing his dad or gramps will try to save em and then you shoot him; or her if its sis mom or grandma.
I got it. Eureka!
The enemy are all the old farts and their kids that listened to the stories of; When I was young and lived in an almost free America."

The enemy created the perfect enemy, fear itself. The agenda is to spend the country into oblivion, then when its bankrupt, the mafia banksters will swoop in grabbing assets. Its the same ole asset grab they do on 3rd world countries. This time they want the big nugget. The endless wars (trillions in military spending), Obamacare (trillions welfare spending), ammo (fear fear fear). The agenda is to spend spend spend, then they're gonna implode the economy n take us to WW3 to make us bankrupt. Then they'll want assets, special contracts, n vital resources. Duhhhh. They're not that smart, they just know politicians are whores.

All that molestation of millions while ignoring American and Mossad terrorists allowed to roam free in America has gone to their heads.
