This is getting a little creepy.
According to one estimate, since last year the Department of Homeland Security has stockpiled more than 1.6 billion bullets, mainly .40 caliber and 9mm.
DHS also purchased 2,700 Mine Resistant Armor Protected Vehicles (MRAP).
Modern Survival Blog reported:
The Department of Homeland Security (through the U.S. Army Forces Command) recently retrofitted 2,717 of these Mine Resistant Protected vehicles for service on the streets of the United States.
Although Ive seen and read several online blurbs about this vehicle of late, I decided to dig slightly deeper and discover more about the vehicle itself.
The new DHS sanctioned Street Sweeper (my own slang due to the gun ports) is built by Navistar Defense (NavistarDefense.com), a division within the Navistar organization...

That's correct. MRAPs aren't difficult to destroy, but they do an outstanding job of protecting the occupants inside.
What color is the boathouse at Hertfordshire? Bet they don’t know. My Boy Scout troop in the early 70’s was quite a bit meaner looking than that crew.
They'll be DOA if they bring them out.
They have to get out at some point ....
“Interesting photo with the four spare tires.”
Look at the wheel hubs. It would take an air wrench and a weekend to change them out.
I hear ammonia is good at making the vehicles uninhabitable.
Those tanks will come in very handy once DHS personnel turn on Obama and use them against him or they are commandeered out of their hands...
Your tax dollars at work against you. Insane when you think about it.
my son drove one of these in Afghanistan and they get stuck in the mud real easy. and it takes aniother two of them to pull it out.
they also arent that great for “mine” protection.
Ike died a long time ago.
I wonder how well those MRAPs work when covered with a couple hundred gallons of gasoline.
Paint ball all the windows.....
Who the hell is allowing payment for that stuff?. The U.S. couldn’t buy body arm for our soldiers but can buy this stull for his upcoming civil war. Call your congress dofusses to stop the payment for this stuff. I have no doubt Odumbo is getting ready for his planned civial war that will take place right HERE when he creates his marshall Law event and names himself a King of the U.S.
Enough is enough! (I’m getting piss#d)
They are getting ready to put down an insurrection.
And they don’t know if it will come from the right or left (they really don’t).
Retrofitted. Basically, in reading the comments at the various websites, some posters are saying these are leftover vehicles from Iraq and Afghanistan and are being upgraded so they don't rot.
These are NOT new purchases as implied by the headline. Which calls into question some of the other claims. I would take this reporting with a grain of salt. Let's get some more facts before leaping to conclusions.
They'll need fuel and LOTS of maintenance at the unit level, too.
