    What is our Government up to with all this news about drone attacks on our own citizens? They use the word terrorist to describe American citizens that are threats to America but will not use this word to describe radical Muslims. hmmmmm

    There is also news of DHS buying 100s of millions of rounds of ammo. Some of the ammo is designated as sniper ammo. There is mention of billions of rounds purchased over the coming few years.

    Does the Government know something is up, like a take over from certian citizen groups? This is starting to sound creepy.

    Jedi, I hear you, but Obama wants the Mexicans coming over so he won't shoot them? I think they fear militia type organizations getting out of control. What ever it is, it is scary.

    Personal opinion, nothing more............

    DHS buying millions of round of ammo is just part of the process to disarm the honest citizens of this country. What better way to make a gun useless? It's only a club if there aren't any bullets to put in it.

    The more the government buys (takes off the market), the less there is available for private purchase.

    With the government in direct competition with the public for available production, the price of ammo is going the way of a piece of prime beef. How many average John Q Public can afford to buy ribeye steaks in any appreciable quantity today?

    BTW, DHS isn't the only department buying ammo. Take a look at who else is stockpiling millions of rounds.

    Rick, I see there's been some backpeddling going on since I last followed this story, several months ago.

    Here's a NRA link that explains/refutes some of it.
    Federal Law Enforcement Agencies Buy Ammunition
    http://www.nraila.org/news-issues/articles/2012/federal-law-enforcement-agencies-buy-ammunition.aspx

    Social Security Administration To Purchase 174 Thousand Rounds Of Hollow Point Bullets http://www.infowars.com/social-secu...-174-thousand-rounds-of-hollow-point-bullets/

    DHS blacks out ammo purchase quantities, stockpiles ammo in secret
    http://www.naturalnews.com/036925_DHS_ammo_stockpiling_government_secrets.html

    The big media lie about the US government's purchases of over one billion rounds of anti-personnel ammunition
    http://www.naturalnews.com/036847_ammo_purchases_government_stockpiling_media_lies.html

    If memory serves, this appears to be the initial report that I saw.
    More federal agencies buy multithousands of rounds of ammo
    http://www.examiner.com/article/more-federal-agencies-buy-multithousands-of-rounds-of-ammo

    Now it seems the same source says:
    Source says government ammo purchase story a disinformation campaign
    I don't have time, this afternoon, to dig further into this to see which way what is standing, now. Have to be back at church, soon.

    Sorry if I've lead anyone astray, if this does turn out to be much ado about nothing. Hopefully, I'll get time later this week to do more digging, unless someone else comes up with something that appears to be trustworthy and negates what I had to say earlier.

    Well, it may be a rabbit trail but SOMEBODY is wolfing away the ammo - or the mfgs have just quit producing.
    The stuff is as scarce a snowball in August, so something is happening g to it!!!
