It's time that someone started doing a little checking. Major General Jerry Curry, US Army (Ret) asks questions about some curious purchases. Who does the government intend to shoot?
Have you been to a Social Security Administration office? What is it doing with guns?
The Social Security Administration (SSA) confirms that it is purchasing 174 thousand rounds of hollow point bullets to be delivered to 41 locations in major cities across the U.S. No one has yet said what the purpose of these purchases is, though we are led to believe that they will be used only in an emergency to counteract and control civil unrest. Those against whom the hollow point bullets are to be used those causing the civil unrest must be American citizens; since the SSA has never been used overseas to help foreign countries maintain control of their citizens.
What would be the target of these 174, 000 rounds of hollow point bullets? It cant simply be to control demonstrators or rioters. Hollow point bullets are so lethal that the Geneva Convention does not allow their use on the battle field in time of war. Hollow point bullets dont just stop or hurt people, they penetrate the body, spread out, fragment and cause maximum damage to the bodys organs. Death often follows.
Are the men and women at the SSA going to shoot people is there's a problem instead of calling the police?
What about the atmospheric scientists at NOAA?
The National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA) has ordered 46,000 rounds of hollow point ammunition. Notice that all of these purchases are for the lethal hollow nose bullets. These bullets are not being purchased and stored for squirrel or coyote hunting. This is serious ammunition manufactured to be used for serious purposes.
In March DHS ordered 750 million rounds of hollow point ammunition. It then turned around and ordered an additional 750 million rounds of miscellaneous bullets including some that are capable of penetrating walls. This is enough ammunition to empty five rounds into the body of every living American citizen. Is this something we and the Congress should be concerned about? Whats the plan that requires so many dead Americans, even during times of civil unrest? Has Congress and the Administration vetted the plan in public....
Why buy all this ammunition unless you plan to use it. Unknown to Congress, Does DHS plan to declare war on some country? ...
Is there some private army that's being created outside of the police and the military? I have been reading about this and have dismissed it. After all, we really don't have a history of military coups. But what's the purpose of all this ammunition being delivered to "civilian" members of the government?
We have local police, backed up by each states National Guard, backed up by the Department of Defense. So in addition to all these forces why does DHS need its own private army? Why do the SSA, NOAA and other government agencies need to create their own civilian security forces armed with hollow nose bullets?
Were I the JCS, and if I wasnt already fully briefed on this matter, Id stop the purchase of hollow point bullets, ask the secretary of Defense why all this ammunition is being purchased and spread around the country? If I got answers like the ones Congress got during the investigation of Operation Fast and Furious Id start tracking all ammunition deliveries nationwide to find out what organizations and units are using them, for what purpose and, if it is not constitutional, prepare to counteract whatever it is that they are doing.
We know the answer: if one was old, on SS or close to it, and lost it all, one is bound to get ‘upset’ and those running things can’t have that, that is all.
The Democrats don’t have any problems with guns as long as they get to say who the guns are pointed at.
All this talk of domestic terrorists from Janet Napolitano tells me they expect to need those bullets to combat US when we get mad as hell. What other explanation could there be ?
Zombies, of course. The government is “prepping.” It’s the greatest of the latest fads. If they prepare for the “marauding hordes,” they’ll stay rich and live forever. ;-)
It does seem suspicious that the Federal government should have so much need of VAST quantities of ammunition, particularly hollow-point, which makes a devastating wound on exit.
Maybe they are getting ready to transfer this supply of ammo to the Mexican drug cartels?
Or is it to cause an artificial scarcity of this kind of ammunition domestically?
Seems like overkill. Only, who is going to be overkilled?
For anyone who is buying into the argument that 1.2 billion rounds of ammo is just a normal purchase bear in mind that the military only used about 70 million rounds per year in Iraq.
you may have a point I didn’t think of and thats to make ammun. shortage nation wide, buy up all they can...Lefty’s cannot shoot straight..
The government should fear it’s citizens, not the other way around.
Maybe they should be looking over their shoulders. People are fed up.
I was told that each federal agent must shoot something like 25,000 rounds a year at the practice range as part of job skill maintenance. As there are about 20,000 of these people.....do the math. It’s a lot of rounds, but harmless in intent.
My theory: SS and other agencies are buying ammo for Homeland Security, which will be the domestic version of the US Military for putting down any insurrections.
Which year; how many men/women; and whose statistic are you using, and where can I verify your number?
I remember that during his first presidential campaign, the Bamster stated on camera that he wanted a domestic federal police force that was as big and well armed as our military. Does anyone have the link to this?
I’d be wary of flying pigs crapping on my head before I would ever believe that each federal agent fired 25,000 rounds per year for practice/qualification. If, for the sake of argument, that each magazine held 10 rounds, that would make 2,500 magazines per agent fired. Say, for the sake of argument, that each agent practiced/qualified once a month, that would be 200+ magazines per month fired. NONSENSE!
Say, for the sake of argument, that each agent practiced/qualified once a week, that would be 50+ magazines fired per week. With automatics, is that really so much? Burrrrrp, clip change, burrrrrrp, clip change, burrrrrp, clip change. Wouldn’t take but 30 minutes. MAKES SENSE!
This move MUST be to dry up supply and availability, while raising prices.
Giving a bunch of pencil pushers, weapons, is not exactly a threat to the American people.
Now, I know there are a lot of desk jockies, like me, who cringe at this characterization.
But, given the agencies these newly endowed staffers work for, what are the odds they have ever fired a weapon or are the least bit proficient with one?
What are the odds that a USMC fresh recruit has ever fired a weapon or is the least bit proficient with one? How long does it take the USMC to create a superb marksman? Not that long, really, when you think about it....what, 3 or 4 months?
