Here's some food for thought. In March Homeland Secuity purchased 750 million rounds of S&W .40 Hollow Points. Last week the National Weather Service bought 40,000 rounds and The Social Security Administration bought 174.000 rounds. The Geneva Convention prohibits the use of Hollow Points in international warfare. Can I assume this is for domestic use? I was in DC a while back. My son lives in Northern VA and I went to see him. Guys on the streets wearing body armor carrying m16s and M4s. My son says they are from DHS and they are the new Federal Police who guard federal buildings. Do you think these guys are overdressed?

DHS purchased 450 million rounds of .40Cal JHP ammo in March of this year & will award a contract for an additional 750 million rounds of .45 cal, .223/5.56 NATO, .308 cal & 12 Gauge 00B as well as body armor & riot control gear on Aug 31st. Over 1.2 billion rounds, which is more small arms ammo than has been fired in Afghanistan since hostilities started. Since JHP ammo is banned by the Geneva Convention for warfare, DHS must be declaring hostilities on US soil. Evidently they know one of two things & that is 1 - The economy is going to totally collapse & people will riot when there is on money or food or 2 - this administration plans on staying in power regardless of what the election results are. Either way, it is time to arm yourself.
