Why so much ammo?


In 2008, at a campaign rally, candidate Barack Hussein Obama said, “We cannot continue to rely only on our military in order to achieve the national security objectives that we’ve set. We’ve got to have a civilian national security force that is just as powerful, just as strong, just as well funded.”

This poses two serious questions. What national security objectives? And, who is, “We?”

The United States has the strongest military in the world and massive oceans to the east and west — a friendly and peaceful nation to the north. However, we have within our borders a potential army of over 10 million illegal third world citizens ready, willing and able to earn their “citizenship” through community service as part of an “internal security force.”

According to Fox News, the Homeland Security Department wants to buy more than 1.6 billion rounds of ammunition in the next four or five years.

There is only one reasonable and rational explanation. Those bullets are intended to be used against you and me. We already have an internal security force composed of way more than 100 million private gun owners. There are two steps to confiscate those firearms. Registration, now called by the false name of background checks, followed by actual confiscation.

Allegedly, those bullets are for target practice. However, all gun owners know that target practice is generally done by using inexpensive ammunition, and shooting skills are honed with the same.

Most of us shooters learned to shoot with BB guns, pellet guns and 22’s. Once we were good shots, we graduated to the more accurate ammunition and higher powered rifles. We can do wonders at 300 and 400 yards. However, annual mandatory warrantless home inspections, for firearms as demanded by a recent Washington State Democrat proposed bill would render your protection against illegal searches meaningless.

The federal government is buying up so much ammunition and assault weapons that private parties can’t get them anymore.
