Ammo? What Ammo? DHS Takes Unprecedented Step of Redacting Mass Ammunition Purchase
A report from Paul Joseph Watson at Infowars indicates that the Department of Homeland Security has redacted their most recent purchase order for ammunition. With DHS having purchased over one billion rounds of ammunition in just the last year and an outcry across alternative media web sites and blogs, it seems they are now looking to hide their activities, even though the only legal reasons for redacting government related documents is through a Congressional mandate or a national security issue.
The Department of Homeland Security has redacted information relating to the quantity of bullets it is buying following a controversy concerning the agency’s purchase of over a billion rounds of ammo, which many fear is a sign the federal government is preparing for civil unrest in the United States.
Despite the fact that documents are only supposed to be redacted if authorized by Congress or for national security reasons, a solicitation posted on the FedBizOpps website yesterday concerning ammunition purchases made by the DHS on behalf of Immigration & Customs Enforcement (ICE) contains numerous blacked out sections.
The Department of Homeland Security’s decision to black out sections of the document, including the number of bullets being purchased, is likely to be related to a massive controversy which has snowballed over the last few weeks pertaining to concerns as to why the federal agency has purchased well over a billion rounds of bullets over the last 6 months alone.
Given the fact that the DHS is also acquiring riot gear in preparation for civil unrest which could take place at the upcoming DNC, RNC and presidential inauguration, the purchase of ammunition in such massive numbers has stoked fears that the federal government could be preparing to use force against the American people.
This screenshot illustrates how the DHS has blacked out information pertaining to the amount of bullets being purchased.
The trigger for this could be an economic collapse that causes angry Americans to flood the streets similar to scenes witnessed across Europe over the last two years.
As Mike Adams writes, “The U.S. government clearly sees the writing on the wall. What lays ahead for America is a day of unbearable reckoning. The financial collapse will wipe out savings accounts, pensions, investment funds and equities of the working class, all across the nation. Imagine bank accounts being reset to zero, “bank holidays” enforced at gunpoint. That will unleash a wave of violent protests, social chaos and even talk of revolution. The government will almost certainly respond with a declaration of Martial Law, the rolling out of highway checkpoints, and before long, the use of live ammo on unruly protesters.”
One possible reason behind why DHS is now trying to erase any record of how much ammunition they are purchasing is newly proposed legislation in California that would red flag anyone who purchases more than 1,000 rounds of ammunition in a five (5) day period. Perhaps Homeland Security’s redaction is an effort to stay off the red list (of which so many of our readers are certainly now members of).
All kidding aside, there must be something to this.
For what reason would a public agency redact a public purchase order without the approval of Congress? Perhaps there is already a national security issue in place that we have not yet been made aware of. As DHS notes in their order, there is an “unusual and compelling urgency” to purchasing this ammunition.
Apparently the one billion rounds already purchased in the last twelve months isn’t enough and Homeland Security is planning on running out. Either they’ve been doing some serious target shooting across the country to burn through that much ammo, or they plan on using it soon and expect that a billion just isn’t going to cut it. What could possibly be so urgent that they are running low given how much they have already stockpiled?
Congressional members are looking into banning online ammunition sales on a national level and now states are starting to red flag people for acquiring ammo in bulk, yet not a peep from Congress, the President or any mainstream media organization on why our government is stockpiling hundreds of millions of bullets.
If there were ever a red flag, we think this is it.
