I was in the shower this morning (where I do some of my best thinking), when I started mulling over all of the recent ammunition purchases made by federal agencies.
“Hmm,” I thought. “They’re getting .357 Sig and .40 S&W ammo. Those aren’t military calibers. Guns for those rounds are only used by the agencies that placed the orders. And why get so much handgun ammunition? With the quantities they are ordering, it looks like they’re getting ready for serious trouble. Don’t they know handguns aren’t the best tools for serious trouble?”
Turns out that DHS placed an order for more .223 rifle ammo just recently. This stuff can be fired in the M16s, M4s, and military assault rifles used by our government at all levels. It sounds like they have their firearms bases covered.
Would anyone like to hazard a guess as to why this is happening so close to a presidential election? It’s almost like they are preparing for massive civil unrest. Do they expect riots if Obama loses? Not likely, this administration sees minorities as victims, not perpetrators. How about if Romney loses? Well, they think Tea Partiers are white supremacist nut jobs but this much preparation seems like overkill. Terrorist attack? Red Dawn? Hostile Martians who deem as trespassers because of Curiosity?
What if some kind of national emergency happened just prior to the elections that caused them to be postponed? How about a crisis just before inauguration day? Would that get enough people up in arms to validate such massive ammunition purchases? Food for thought. May election day and January 21, 2013 come and go in peace.
