    Conspiracy theories? Why the denial? Do government agencies need to stockpile enough ammo for a thirty year war?

    Or maybe you can share the logical reasoning for the massive amounts of ammo purchases by the US government?

    To put that in perspective, during the height of active battle operations in Iraq, US soldiers used 5.5 million rounds of ammunition a month. Extrapolating the figures, the DHS has purchased enough bullets over the last 10 months to wage a full scale war for almost 30 years.

    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.
    Judging from how our elected officials are acting, they've stopped working for the people...it's all Party now. And it's frightening to think that Martial Law would ever be needed for the majority of us, who are mostly law-abiding, decent people.

    LOL well, that thar is yer source right thar.....Alex Jones, king of conspriacy nuts. Congress seems to have way too much time on their hands if this is the kind of nonsense they're spending their time and our tax dollars on.


    Say, why don't they just vote themselves a longer recess....like say nine months out of the year since they're incapable of governing and doing more harm than good, anyway?

    Yes, yes and yes.

    and why is it that all the gun restrictionists are far left? The fact is the Obama administration wants to harass gun owners since most of us who actually are serious about gun ownership don't vote for turds like Obama

    2 ongoing wars, half a dozen conflicts where we're supplying guerrilla fighters with ammo.... just a thought.

    that would be the military supply

    NOT DHS which is buying ammo banned for use by our military

    I'd like to know why DHS needs so much ammo? Reports have placed the amount at 1000 rounds per person more than our military uses...That is stunning. What's it for?



    So demo's ridicule, shocking! That is what they always do when they get caught isn't it?
    So if under a Republican administration there is ammo stockpiling, it's because they are patriotic but if ammo stockpiling happens during a Dem administration then the big bad gubamint is going to attack us all... got it.

    If you are that paranoid of the gubamint then why not embrace the founding fathers' principles of no standing army...

    "There are instruments so dangerous to the rights of the nation and which place them so totally at the mercy of their governors that those governors, whether legislative or executive, should be restrained from keeping such instruments on foot but in well-defined cases. Such an instrument is a standing army." --Thomas Jefferson to David Humphreys, 1789. ME 7:323

    "I do not like [in the new Federal Constitution] the omission of a Bill of Rights providing clearly and without the aid of sophisms for... protection against standing armies." --Thomas Jefferson to James Madison, 1787. ME 6:387

    "Nor is it conceived needful or safe that a standing army should be kept up in time of peace for [defense against invasion]." --Thomas Jefferson: 1st Annual Message, 1801. ME 3:334

    "Standing armies [are] inconsistent with [a people's] freedom and subversive of their quiet." --Thomas Jefferson: Reply to Lord North's Proposition, 1775. Papers 1:231

    "The spirit of this country is totally adverse to a large military force." --Thomas Jefferson to Chandler Price, 1807. ME 11:160

    "A distinction between the civil and military [is one] which it would be for the good of the whole to obliterate as soon as possible." --Thomas Jefferson: Answers to de Meusnier Questions, 1786. ME 17:90

    "It is nonsense to talk of regulars. They are not to be had among a people so easy and happy at home as ours. We might as well rely on calling down an army of angels from heaven." --Thomas Jefferson to James Monroe, 1814. ME 14:207

    "There shall be no standing army but in time of actual war." --Thomas Jefferson: Draft Virginia Constitution, 1776. Papers 1:363

    "The Greeks and Romans had no standing armies, yet they defended themselves. The Greeks by their laws, and the Romans by the spirit of their people, took care to put into the hands of their rulers no such engine of oppression as a standing army. Their system was to make every man a soldier and oblige him to repair to the standard of his country whenever that was reared. This made them invincible; and the same remedy will make us so." --Thomas Jefferson to Thomas Cooper, 1814. ME 14:184

    "Bonaparte... transferred the destinies of the republic from the civil to the military arm. Some will use this as a lesson against the practicability of republican government. I read it as a lesson against the danger of standing armies." --Thomas Jefferson to Samuel Adams, 1800. ME 10:154

    Just wanna find where your paranoia limits are.
