Why Is Homeland Security Stockpiling Guns and Ammo?

On July 5, the Department of Homeland Security announced on the FedBizOpps.gov website that it plans to buy thirty-six Colt LE901 rifle systems. The latest DHS purchase follows a solicitation issued on July 13 for the purchase of .223 Caliber Remington Enhanced Performance Ammunition in excess of $500,000. The Colt assault weapons are designed to accept the .223 ammunition.

“The 901 is much more than your typical assault rifle,” notes the Prepper Podcast Radio Network website. The weapon will allow “the DHS/FEMA foot soldier to go from an assault rifle to picking off ‘terrorists’ at a distance by only changing the upper receiver.”

In June, FedBizOpps.gov listed a “Personal Defense Weapons Solicitation” issued by DHS calling for 5.56x45mm NATO select-fire firearms “suitable for personal defense.” The due date for the solicitation is mid-October of 2012

In April, we reported on the DHS awarding contracts to a munitions company for 450 million rounds of .40 caliber hollow point ammunition. Prior to this, the feds awarded Winchester a five year contract for 200 million rounds .40 caliber ammunition.

    The answer is really simple. They are planning to suspend the Election and repel an all out Revolt by We The People to retake OUR USA! Their plans for an internal take over by subversion, have failed in most parts, and they realize that. They are now trying to disarm us, using the Leftist U.N. to attack Our Second Amendement that clearly states that it “Shall Not be Infringed.” That means it is etched in Stone! PERMANANT STATUS! ~Rick Magee, FL * See ya in the Camps!

    • EJR says:

      The # 1 gift purchase at Christmas 2011 was FIREARMS. Millions of them. Yes we are ready…

      • Victor Magilke says:

        Americana are ready from coast to coast. Its long overdue. Time to take back America from the racist dregs of society.

    • Searcher98 says:

      I heard on the radio yesterday that a treaty (UN in this case) has the power of a Constitutional amendment and would trump the Second.
      HOw about them apples.

      • RLM357 says:

        That is the ANTI Second Amendment that Hillary intends to sign with the U.N., shortly. They couldn’t repeal it legally so they intend to allow the Int’l Gun Treaty by the U.N., to do it. W.J. Clinton began to surrender Our Sovereignty to the U.N. as part of the Leftist plot to undermine us. ~Rick Magee, FL

      • nmgene says:

        A UN treaty does not cancel out the Constitution or the Second Ammendment. Only a Constitutional ammendment can do that and they dont have the votes for that and if they do I will ignore them anyway!!!!!!!!

        • kid721952 says:

          Problem is there is a treaty that was signed in 1961,the vienna treaty that gives power to the president to take away our guns and erase the 2nd amendment.This I found out when watching dick morris video,he can explain it better

  2. Victor Magilke says:

    I’m asumming that all these weapons and ammunition are to arm Obama’s private army of Acorn, the inner city youth gangs and the black panthers. I hate to quote Bush, but I say, ” bring it on boys.”

    • Michael G. says:

      I hope the manufacturer’s of all this stuff fixes them so a lot of it doesn’t work as advertised, or just blows up in their faces.
      I saw a video on youtube where the people involved were hitting a target 15 1,000 yards. The drop of the shot was quite a bit, but they hit the target with an old Mosin/Negant.

      • nmgene says:

        Billy Brooks shot an Indian on a horse at 1 mile in the late 1800s with a sharps rifle. I shoot a 300 win mag at a 1000 yards all the time. I only have 19 toys right now but am buying more. Invest in precious metals, Lead and Brass!!!!!

      • Victor Magilke says:

        Wow! That’s almost unbelievable. And I thought 500 yards was a long distance. Times have change a lot since I was in the military.

      • Victor Magilke says:

        You are right Susan. Most of my friends are ready to defend their country against tyranny.

  3. NotMe says:

    The Department of Homeland Security has issued a detailed plan whereas they will place armed personnel on the boarders, shooting anyone who tries to leave the United States.

    • polmutant says:


    • Rev. Michael says:

      Seriously? Where can I see a copy of this plan?
      I seriously doubt that they’d be “shooting anyone who tries to leave the country”. There were people leaving NAZI Germany and the Soviet Union even during the height of those conflicts. Severe restrictions, yes, but not a 100% impermeable barrier. The restricting country still has to do business, staff embassies, crew cargo ships & commercial airlines, etc. so they won’t shoot “everyone”.
      If the people-smugglers can do a brisk trade taking poor latino people north they can do the same for relatively wealthy gingos headed the other way. Finding “safe-harbor” in another country may be another matter. Remember that Switzerland cooperated with NAZI Germany in returning people trying to escape during WWII. Who would think that any other country in the world would want to tick-off the greatest military power on the Earth? The U.S. might even offer a “ransom” (bounty) for the return of former Americans.
      Personally, I’d think that anyone wanting to leave the country ought to be allowed to do so. Who wants more potential trouble-makers than necessary? Leaving the country is one thing, leaving with your money is another matter entirely. You’ll probably get to leave with only the clothes on your back (after paying a hefty “exit” fee). Anything else – houses, businesses, bank accounts, retirement plans, etc. will be forfeited to the Government as partial repayment for what they invested in you (schooling, providing infrastructure such as roads, bridges, etc.). That was the way the old-time Soviets did it.
      You had better have planned ahead and have some money in whatever country you relocate to because they are almost certainly going to demand a big “entry” fee and you’re going to need money to live on for some period of time. How to do that without triggering some kind of banking tripwires I have no idea.

    • MichaelSee says:

      Rev. Mike, leave if you want – you coward! But many, many of us are gonna stay and do what we can to save this country. It might be active military-type action or it might just be French/Dutch type resistance. Either way, it’s all part of that “defending against all enemies, foreign and domestic” oath thing. Running for the border with your tail between your legs won’t get you much respect from me or people like me. Personally, I’d rather live one day as a lion than the rest of my life as a whipped dog!

      • Rev. Michael says:

        MichaelSee, if only you would (see, that is). I view “running for the border” as something akin to the thousands of Jews that fled Germany before Hitler came to power. Staying and fighting would have accomplished absolutely NOTHING! I think that if I can set-up a stable, safe home base overseas that I can be more help to other emigre’s (think the Civil War’s underground railroad).
        Michael, you can stay and fight your worthless “Red Dawn” fantasy if you want, but knowing when to fight and when to run is one definition of wisdom. Have fun playing with your soldier wanna-bee buddies. You guys will be the first ones the new masters will jail or kill. The good thing is that your final fights will be good cover for the rest of us to either flee or get our heads down in preparation. Lotsa luck!

    Should be interesting when they try to take on the citizens.

    • kid721952 says:

      The government is getting ready to declare martial law in the United States,thats why civilian troops have been training in the streets with armored vehicles in St. Louis and south carolina,hope everybody is ready and stocked with guns and ammunition because obama and the government are going to try to take CONTROL OF THE PEOPLE OF THE U.S. BY FORCE.Martial law will also stop the election and the presiding president will stay in the white house until the conflict is resolved which could take years.AMERICANS BE READY AND WILLING TO FIGHT FOR YOUR FREEDOM OR DIE .

    • boyer68 says:

      Ya got that right.

    • Victor Magilke says:

      I believe they will have massive problems trying to take away the fire arms from law abiding citizens. Decent White American Christians have had enough of this racist administration.

  5. Wayfaring Stranger says:

    Y’Know, it was the Praetorian Guards that assassinated one of the most despicable Caesars!

    • Michael G. says:

      Was that Canigula? or Nero? I can’t remember. There were quite a few that met a rather bad ending that way.

  6. Greg says:

    For the economic cliff or a civil war, take your pick.

    • billy2 says:

      ya, we’ve got on hell of choice………….

    • Sam says:

      Economic cliff? Civil War? How about a planned martial law takeover of the US. Obama will have the DHS army and all the executive orders to cover all the bases to make himself a dictator.

  7. sean murry says:

    It sounds like obummer is arming his privite army ok bring it on mfs.

    • Michael G. says:

      We’ll have to fight them ‘Indian’ style.
      Seems to me that some modern armies have been defeated by people with bows-and-arrows.
      There was another time when the same thing happened to the British at Isandhalwana (Jan. 1879).
      History repeats itself. We’re getting ready to do it again.

  8. Lindy says:

    Obama did say that he wanted an army as strong as our military and yet not one media outlet picked up on that. Thank goodness there is a group of military, police, fire, and others who will not take part in any attack on the citizens of this country. In fact they are preparing for just that moment.

    • guest says:

      Yea oathkeepers

    • Mike6 says:

      Obama and Moochelle said in 2008 that they wanted their own private army to protect them from the enemies. Who are the Obama enemies? Are they patriots like you and me?
      Lenin in 1917 had his own Bolshevik private army that was armed with modern german weapons and Lenin use his Bolshevik army to overthrow the Constitional Russian Provisional Goverment and that was a crime. If Obama looses the November election, will he use his private army and against whom?

      • John W. Fisher says:

        Hitler had his S.S. .what’s Obama got ? the “New”Black Panther Party? I wouldn’t put anything past this guy and his “jackassian” policies.

        • Ron says:

          Hitler did not have the S.S. Hitler had the Brown Shirt Army. The SS was rather small in numbers but the Brown Shirt Army was huge.

        • Mike6 says:

          Several months ago, masked SEIU union goons smashd windows in a New York Starbucks and the clients dove for cover. This was just like Hitlers SA and our Pravda media did not say a word. Obama and Peloci incited these attacks and the OWS takeovers and that is an outrage. Patriots should march on the White House and demand an explanation.

        • Kbigdaddy12 says:

          Hitler started with the brown shirts first

        • Victor Magilke says:

          Barack Obama is much more dangerous than Hitler was. Like him or not, Hitler was a Patriot and loved his people. Obama hates the USA and white Americans.

        • Robbi says:

          Amen! to that!

      • Kbigdaddy12 says:

        there will be no election he is not going to take a chance in loosing or it is riged all ready 2 to 4 wks before is when he will call marchal law

        • Mike6 says:

          If Obama calls for Marshall Law or starts a war with Iran to win the election, I think that would be grounds for impeachment. Do you agree?

        • BOOMER8 says:


        • Robbi says:

          go look up dead dog votes,their showing that those obummer acorn groups are sending out filled in ballets in people’s dead dogs names

      • BOOMER8 says:

        has to have loyal soldiers first. do you see that happening?

        • Mike6 says:

          I have read that if the polls go against Obama next October, the WON may bring in Hillary to be his VP and he may even incite OWS riots in all our cities to keep patriots away from the polls.
          However, I doubt that Moochelle will let a second fat communist lady run around in the White House, scaring everyone, and telling the DNC what to do.

    • Michael G. says:

      If they did, they’ve ignored it, or told “not” to say anything about it.

    • John Gorman says:

      I sure hope that you are right!

  9. jazboo says:

    It looks like we’re in for a bloody November!

  10. good160 says:

    for the same reason we all? are look for whats comming!

  11. John Randall says:

    Whats the first thing a band of outlaws (Homeland Security ) need, Well of course a stockpile of guns. Our country has been over thrown we just havent got brains enough to admit it.

  12. B. A. says:

    Gotta arm the Obama “Civilian Security Force” with something. They already received $12Million via Obamacare. Let’s see, we have DHS, FBI, CIA, Armed Forces, State, County and municipal police, BUT WE NEED OBAMA BROWN BOOTS? Gee, I wonder if they’ll be protecting “we the people” or supporting the Obama New World Order takeover of the USA?

  13. Oneway says:

    This is going to be interesting when Civil War break’s out and AMERICAN Fighting Men and Women have to shoot AMERICAN Citizen what do you think will take place is there going to be a COMMUNIST Take Over all I can say is that Iam Locked and Loaded.

  14. jdbixii says:

    If I had to guess, I would say someone believes that they have to defend something, exactly what ? is the question.

  15. Nadine says:

    This has to get out to more people what this dangerous man is doing! Makes me sick!
