Despite repeated reports of the Obama Department of Homeland Security buying up massive amounts of ammunition – so much so in fact local law enforcement have been unable to make their own purchases, the Obama administration came out indicating the accusation is false, while at the same time refusing to officially answer Congressional questions on the issue…
EXCERPT: (via U.S. News)
DHS Denies Massive Ammunition Purchase
…In the letter to DHS Secretary Janet Napolitano, Huelskamp wrote that it had “become clear” that DHS was “purchasing vast quantities of ammunition” and that “estimates show that this … would be enough for 24 Iraq wars.” The Kansas congressman also said the timing of the purchase was “of great interest” because of gun control legislation currently being pushed by the Obama administration.
“The extraordinary level of ammunition purchases made by Homeland Security seems to have, in states such as my own, created an extreme shortage of ammunition to the point where many gun owners are unable to purchase any,” he wrote. LINK
DHS Won’t Answer Congress On Billion Bullet Purchase
Bullet Buys: Fifteen members of Congress have written a letter to the Department of Homeland Security demanding to know why the federal agency is buying so many rounds of ammunition. We’d like to know too.
Freshman California Republican Doug LaMalfa and 14 of his House colleagues, who signed on to his March 5 letter, are asking the Department of Homeland Security to explain why it is buying 1.6 billion rounds of ammunition of various calibers. They aren’t happy with explanations provided so far in the press by lower-level officials, answers meant to debunk “unfounded” concerns.
As we have noted, DHS has been buying lots of ammo, enough by one calculation to fight the equivalent of a 24-year Iraqi War.
…A good portion of the 1.6 billion rounds of ammunition are being purchased by Immigration and Customs Enforcement, the federal government’s second-largest criminal investigative agency. Yes that’s the same ICE that is releasing detained criminal illegal aliens onto our streets because of sequestration cuts.
…LaMalfa offers one theory that’s less sinister than some: The federal government is simply trying to corner the market on ammo and restrict what’s available to the American people as part of its gun control efforts. LINK
“The whole world should read this book!”
” America is no more. Hidden within the isolated wilderness of Alaska’s interior resides the tiny community of Dominatus. There lives a small but diverse group of people seeking out simple lives of liberty and freedom, but who now face termination under the deadly regime of the New United Nations. These people yearn for a time before the drone killings, before the mandates, before…Obama. “

“A real page turner! – Fantastic book, Ulsterman, it was a struggle to put it down and I couldn’t wait to get back into it again! You did an excellent job of weaving today’s reality, and probable future events, with fictional characters into a completely believable story! You also captured the essence of the indomitable American spirit that helped make this country what it was and may one day be again. I look forward to a sequel! ”
