    Why does DHS need 2,700 MRAP's?

    Latest Homeland Security Armored Vehicle

    It looks like these are being used by DHS elements that work with local law enforcement but DAMN! Between drones, 2 billion rounds of ammo and now MRAP's it's getting more than a little uncomfortable to be in disagreement with the government on pretty much anything.

    Well, it's fine, because you have a right to wield guns, which is going to help you fight them.

    Whoever thought the DHS was a good idea must have been quite the facist.

    Like we didn't know this was going to go bad.

    I really, really dislike people/groups who try to intimidate me. And that's what I view the accumulation of things like this as.
    Building block or stumbling block.... choose.

    Pretty soon, you won't have a right to wield guns. Executive order-master Obama will disarm the public, thus rendering us defenseless.

    Even if you DID have guns, small arms fire aint doin **** to that. The government has vastly more weapons technology at it's disposal.

    Basically, we're ****ed.

    Same. Riots and mobs trying to overthrow the government with just cause will get plowed by those vehicles. Seems a little fishy to me.

    The government relies on us for money. Not a single soldier, cop, or politician works for free, pretty much ever. We need only stop getting paid to shut that machine down.
