Their conspiracy theories never cease!

    HAHAHAHA!
    Huh, when you said a couple of thousand AK's I thought you was talking about all the weapons and millions in cash we sent to Iraq that seems to have just disappeared into the sands like all those WMD the BushII administration claimed were there.

    Now I can't find where 'a couple thousand AK-47s and (high-powered) handguns' were sold to Mexican drug cartels...the high-powered I put into parenthesis as I would love to know what a high powered handgun is and how many of those were sold south of the border....

    Are you like that 13 year olf going to her first 'real' dance and putting a few tissues into the bra... yanno trying to make a mountain out of a molehill????

    Maybe you could answer why DHS needs 1.7 billion rounds of ammo?

    There it is. All lullabies, legends and lies. There is no way in hell DHS needs more or even close to the same amount of ammunition as the U.S. Army per man.

    I just love how the Obamaphiles come in here and call everyone names, but won't answer a simple question...

    Good evening, Risky Thicket.

    It's been suggested that the DHS is doing the buying to keep legal gun owners from buying the ammunition they need for their guns, because of the shortages it is causing. Very possible, I guess. Any alternative reason for doing this is food for nightmares, IMO, and I am certain that it makes people uneasy to even think of the other possibilities for the huge amount they are buying!

    If congress already knows how much ammo the DHS has then why do they need a report?

    "Republican Rep. Jason Chaffetz said Thursday that the Department of Homeland Security is using roughly 1,000 rounds of ammunition more per person than the U.S. Army...."

    I say go for it....end the DHS. The public didn't need or want it anyway.

    This was answered in another thread awhile back, I'm sure you read about it.

    you can go read online about it, hot Air did a piece on it.

    Basically the Department of Homeland Security is a blanket organization for a myriad of government agencies(22) and their training programs.

    DHS didn't buy 1.6 to 2 billion rounds, they put out an option to buy 1.6 billion over a, and pay attention here, over a 5 year period. Think of it as a stock option with primers. It only makes sense a huge law enforcement group such as DHS which also has the Border Patrol as part of it's organization put out contracts to hold a certain amount of ammo to be available each year. (given the panic buying many are engaging in at every rumor it only makes sense)

    But even so EVERY governmental agency tendered multi-year contracts for bulk consumables it can estimate it will need in the future.

    The National Review has an article by Charles Cooke where he quotes the NRA as dismissive of the 'threat'.

    I hope you investigate this a bit for yourself and not just the rabble rouser websites and bloggers.

    Hey Polgara!

    I agree.

    The economy isn't in the greatest shape. You may have noticed. If, if, the Net went down, if the nation experienced a bank run or things like that, I could see why the government would want more and more public/social control.

    The government either works for the people or it doesn't.
