Just wondering .... ?

I'm wondering why the US Department of Homeland Security, would need to buy 1.6 BILLION rounds of .40-caliber hollow point bullets
They ordered paper targets too. Like, sure we believe they're going to be used for training. Hollow point is way too expensive to use for paper potshots. Hollow point ammo has been outlawed in war since 1899, because it is designed to expand upon entry and cause maximum organ damage! These bullets don't just go through you, they tear you apart from the inside.

DHS also wants to buy 750 million rounds of 357 mag able to penetrate walls.  They are also buying Kevlar helmets and riot gear and bullet proof checkpoint booths. And many of these are 'no bid' contracts. Like the new 5 year, $4.5 million contract with Heckler and Koch, and they followed that up with literally the same deal with Sig Sauer Arms. Some contracts are even classified to conceal the facts. Others estimate that 2 billion rounds are enough to wage a 20 year war ....  in America!

And here's an odd one, the National Weather Service is also buying 46,000 rounds of hollow points. Are they going to shoot the clouds? These are .40 jacketed hollow point bullets, noted for their strength. Hmm.

AR 15
Back to Homeland Security. So they have purchased almost 2 billion rounds of ammunition now, and that's not all; they added 7000 assault rifles last fall. Do you feel more secure? Are they worried about Ted Nugent coming after them? All he probably wants is to know if it's gonna rain next week for his cookout!  And at least some of those millions of rounds are frighteningly designated as 'sniper' rounds.

And there's an argument that the government is showing its hypocrisy by essentially saying AR15s (aka M16 or M-4 military) are good 'personal defense' weapons for them, while not for American citizens. When civilians own semi-automatic rifles, they somehow become “assault weapons.” Isn't this exactly what those NRA guys keep telling us?

Hmm. Even such staid institutions like Forbes Magazine is wondering if we need to talk about this sudden armament of a US Government agency, have a 'national conversation', they say. Yet you can't find a word in the Main Stream Media. And that's another big HMM.

MRAP armored fighting vehicle
We're told by some that the federal government is stockpiling bullets in preparation for 'civil unrest.' One wonders what the unrest will be about? One wonders what would trigger a mass civil unrest?

But don't you worry, rumor is that they have bought 2700 armored MRAP fighting vehicles too, and they'll make you feel safe. Look, you can ever see the word, 'Rescue' on them. Hoping you won't notice the gun ports. This is not your Dad's Rambler station wagon. And Eddie Murphy won't be stuffing bananas up those tailpipes. What's scary is that these vehicles were designed for Afghanistan, but are to be used in the streets of America. Perhaps along with those mini drones hunting with thermal imaging technology and RPGs.

I feel a little unresty.

Does the word DEpopulation mean something to you?

Just wondering.
