U.S. Homeland Security is preparing for an all-out American Spring rebellion and has bought 1.2 billion bullets for counterterrorist snipers.
It is the type of ammunition and not necessarily the quantity that is troubling, James Smith Prepper Podcast was quoted as saying.
All of the sniper grade ammunition is being used by trained, or in-the-process-of-being-trained snipers, wrote Smith. Adding up the number of lethal bullets tallies a potential 135,384 kills for the snipers, based on U.S. Army and Marine figures from the Vietnam War, when soldiers used 1.3 rounds of ammunition for each verified kill.

Or maybe they are just looking over their shoulders. As they should be.
let’s see...we have local out of control cops, we have county sheriffs, we have Fema, we have TSA agents with untold power to stop and search you and your property at will apparently, and we have Homeland security....add in a miltary controlled by a narcissistic arrogant dictator.....
A policeman in my neighborhood said the same thing. They are loading up on ammo in his department just in case. Let’s just say I am already ready for any thuggery that comes my way on November 7 or there after. I will not be out looking for problems or causing problems but will not shy away either to protect my family and property. I suggest to others on this forum be prepared. I know some of you are probably ahead of me on that front.
Don’t forget the IRS, FBI, CPS, and a litany of alphabet agencies hell bent on destroying every bit of freedom we have left.
Bullets? Not cartridges?
.308 JHP boattail is sniper Ammo.
Illegal for warfare due to the Geneva Convention, but when your a Marxist, and bent on killing your own people, the Geneva Convention does not apply, so I guess its ok?
When the SNAP cards won’t swipe anymore, riots will follow. The questions is who will these snipers target? The rioters or the “Wealthy” trying to defend their property.
In this case, the “Wealthy” would be defined as people who have something worth defending against the Looters.
Whether Obama wins or loses in November, I expect violence to sweep the land after the election.
I do also. I believe we have crossed a tipping point.
Could be preparation for an imminent economic collapse.
A) It’s not illegal because it doesn’t expand.
B) It’s not the Geneva Convention that makes expanding bullets illegal, it’s the Hague Convention of 1899.
That notwithstanding, it, and other tidbits of information that have escaped recently reveal disturbing thoughts in the minds of our would-be masters.
It’s some of each, the bulk being .40 and 5.56x45.
Check the bang list for previous threads - there have been procurements of pistol and rifle ammo.
Exactly. I’ve never understood the hysteria over all the “government buying bullets” stories - and I’m as untrusting of government as they come. I hope they buy them and leave them in storage indefinitely just to watch the heads of panicmongers everywhere explode.
