For those of you who follow my blog, you are aware I have written quite a bit about guns and ammunition. I may have been wrong about the ammo buys of the Federal Government. In the back of my mind, I thought the plan of Obama was to stock up munitions in friendly federal agencies. Then create a crisis, maybe a financial collapse of the U.S. economy, declare Martial Law, suspend the Constitution and declare himself Dictator. The agencies would then enforce his edicts by force against the population. What else could be the purpose of buying 1.6 billion rounds of ammo, over 18 months by DOMESTIC agencies. These agencies don’t deal with foreign affairs or stuff like that. They deal only with Americans. Why do they need 1.6 billion bullets?
The latest agency to make large purchases of ammunition has been the Transportation Security Administration or TSA. This purchase order is for 3.5 million rounds of ammo. Most of the agencies employees are not armed to perform their duties. The exception is the air marshals who number a few thousand. These employees travel armed in case of hijacking and terrorism. The TSA is buying these rounds for training and daily use. It is estimated they plan for 10,000 rounds per day per employee for five years.
Janet Napolitano, Department of Homeland Security Secretary, in April 2013, said the 1.6 billion rounds of ammunition the Federal Government plans to purchase is equal to the amount used annually in the two Middle East wars for 24 years. She was testifying in front of a House committee.
Police Departments across America are facing a lack of ammo for training and daily activities. In Catooso, Oklahoma, the shortage is so severe, the police department asked private citizens to help supply the department with bullets so they can provide safety for the town. Utica, N.Y. was told their recent order would not be filled for at least ten months. Private citizens are completely frozen out of the ammo market. Hunters and sportsmen are not able to purchase ammunition for their guns.
After each of the major civilian shootings since Obama assumed office in 2009, he has proposed disarming the civilian population. Polls show a large majority of both houses of Congress, across the party lines, reject abolishing the Second Amendment, in fact or in spirit. As we know, Obama hates to lose and does everything possible to get his way. The President uses Executive Orders or has the agencies write regulations to do his will whenever Congress refuses to do his bidding. This time Obama is using the agencies to suck up all the available ammunition to disarm America. Without ammo, guns are useless.
No matter what Obama’s plan might be, one thing is certain. President Obama is disarming America and making us defenseless.
