Homeland Security Adds 2,700 Armored Vehicles to Its Domestic Arsenal

If you doubt the Obama Regime would go door to door confiscating our firearms, explain the need for this:

According to one estimate, since last year the Department of Homeland Security has stockpiled more than 1.6 billion bullets, mainly .40 caliber and 9mm.

DHS also purchased 2,700 Mine Resistant Armor Protected Vehicles (MRAP).

These are essentially light tanks, complete with gun ports, to be deployed against the civilian population. It is highly unlikely that their purpose is to prevent Muslim terror attacks or to keep irredentist Mexican welfare colonists from displacing the American population.


This generation is going to produce some heroes. Those who lose their lives resisting the upcoming gun grab will have died for America in a more pure sense even than the dead of Iwo Jima and Omaha Beach, because they will have died not to advance the government’s policies, but for the country’s very essence. Unfortunately they will not be remembered unless liberty somehow prevails.

When they come for your guns, they will pull up in one of these.

    Those babies look like they need a lot of gasoline to properly operate. If push comes to shove, we may all need to contribute.

    I guess I need to go out and start looking for an “assault super soaker.”

    better finish digging that tiger pit…

    …As Colorado eliminates your right to even ordinary hunting shotguns:

  5. Sam Adams says:

    BTW, if police need these kind of vehicles to be safe in the America that Dear Leader’s fundamental transformation is leading to, what do we lowly civilians need?

    BTW, do these vehicles carry and can they fire the much valued incendiary tear gas rounds that are suitable for burning down cabins and compounds?

    And, although they look pretty sturdy, can they stop a 50 cal round?

  6. Dr. 9 says:

    Truth is, and generally speaking, i truly doubt there’s enough will left in the American people to make those MRAP’s necessary. The only real question is, when it hits the fan, will the military comply with their orders?

    better finish digging that tiger pit…

    Since we have few domestic tigers, can we call it a “mountain lion” pit?

  8. Spider says:

    “Any” vehicle can be defeated.

    They are obviously gearing up for something they find frightening. Could it be our reaction when we find out that the Marxist-in-Chief has no intention of leaving at the end of his term? Hmm…

  9. dan says:

    I like mountain lion pit…and my first wonder was if they were fireproof (NOTHING is fireproof,only fire-reistant)
    …or super glue the lock…with Barry inside

    How to defeat an APC: dispatch the operators while they sleep. This is what they do to Americans, so why not do it to them?

  11. Flu-Bird says:

    The better for KING OBAMA the FINK to round up all those who refuse to ecept the NEW WORLD ORDER and the NORTH AMERICAN(SOVIET)UNION under the UNITED NATIONS and to round up all gun owners and home edducators into concentration camps and all those who refuse to send their kids to these indoctrination centers they call SCHOOLS,COLLAGES and UNISERSITIES

  12. Rise up! Because that totally makes sense. says:

    Wow. So you really do see yourselves as some kind of creepy freedom-fighters against the (imaginary) threat of some government-led cabal coming to get you? And now you have thrown in the baseless assertion that Obama wants to be Kim Jung Obama?

    Tinfoils hat hilarity. Awesome sauce.

    I promise, I’ll be here to remind you of how stupid you sound at this moment in 2016, when I am once again proved correct, there is an orderly transition of power, and you can all find reasons to fear Hillary instead of Obama.

  13. Henry says:

    The enemy is inside the gates…

    I saw it said somewhere else: That’s not a “rescue vehicle”, that’s a tank.

    However, without a track system, it can be immobilized as easy as a VW hippie van.

  14. Smaj says:

    This DHS clod calls his people “operators”, obviously trying to equate them to America’s special operations forces. Whatever. They are really just wannabes and bungling clowns. Whether they realize it or not, they are this despotic government’s imperial storm troopers. If they come they will be met and defeated by real American patriots.

  15. DJ says:

    My life as a tyrant

    “I’m going to say something that will undoubtedly cause me to lose some police officer friends. But I feel it needs to be said anyway. I’m willing to take the heat for it.

    Keep in mind, I became a police officer because I wanted to be a good guy. Even though we’ve all seen reports of police brutality and corruption, I still believe we cops are the good guys. I’ve seen cops perform brave, selfless acts for strangers on countless occasions. Even the worst cops I’ve ever known would risk their lives to defend the innocent. But I have to say this anyway. Before you start throwing shoes, hear me out. I have a good reason for saying it.

    If you think our police are no threat to your freedom, you’re living in a fantasy world.

    Now I’ll explain what I mean.”

  19. Dennis Carr says:

    And they have the nerve to tell us why should not have Semi-automatic weapons of our choice???? Well, then, if they are going to have these, I want a FULL Automatic weapon of me choice! I never want the government to have more than I and that includes Drones…

  20. StanInTexas says:

    Sure, Rise, Up, it is an “imaginary threat”.

    Think for a moment what would happen if a Republican did this. Oh wait, we don’t have to, all we need to do is look at the reaction Liberals had to George Bush.

    Remember, detaining an enemy combatant without trial was ‘Shredding the Constitution’, when Bush did it.
    But killing American Citizens without due process (or any process) is perfectly OK, when Obama does it.

  21. Dennis Carr says:

    Sorry, I hate to correct anyone… But: “Sam Adams says: March 4, 2013 at 8:02 am Those babies look like they need a lot of gasoline to properly operate. If push comes to shove, we may all need to contribute.”

    They are diesel with supercharge.. That means they will super charge our tax money to buy a weapon to use against us.. Gasoline will come in handy though, Gasoline grenades… Two quarts should be enough..

  23. StanInTexas says:

    Jackw33, your solution is to go after women and children? Keep your impotent bravado in check, moron.

  24. Bill T says:

    DHS built domestic surveillance tech into Predator drones

    CBP specified that the “tracking accuracy should be sufficient to allow target designation,” and the agency notes on its Web site that its Predator B series is capable of “targeting and weapons delivery” (the military version carries multiple 100-pound Hellfire missiles).

  25. Fiberal says:

    This is grounds for a congressional investigation.

    The problem is that the intended use of this many war vehicles on American soil has not been clarified.

    Not that they will do anything, but the BO administration and HS should at the very least need to explain to congress WTF when arming a new agency at this magnitude.

    Not even as a constitutional issue, this becomes even more critical in light of the track record dimocrats have in dealing with domestic situations; i.e., Waco.

  26. Fiberal says:

    Drones, billions of bullets, training military to fire on children and elderly targets, and now this.

    This looms ominous esp for one particular reason: the BO administration would not be arming up like this anticipating that neither the armament nor the precedent could be used by a future republican administration.

    All previous presidents have been very concerned about what their legacy leaves to future presidents.

    BO is not concerned about this in the least.

    This is extremely troubling.

  27. Jodie says:

    The bumper sticker on the back will probably read something like: “I brake for Muslims and Illegals*

    *Not necessarily for white Christians.”

  28. QuietMan says:

    See that little metal jug just inboard of the left rear tire? That’s the air reservoir for the brakes. When it loses air pressure, the brakes lock up and you have to take a wrench, crawl under there, and fiddle them until they unlock. And those tires burn like a mofo. AMHIK.

    For informational purposes only….

  29. StanInTexas says:

    Jodie, or a bumper sticker that says…

    “So many citizens, so little time!”

    Jack, if you plan on targeting innocent women and children, then you are no different that those you oppose.

    They’ll have to pry my plastic whistle, bic pen, and full bladder out of my cold, dead, fingers.

  33. Flu-Bird says:

    Even as Obama and his fellow demacRATS plan to disarm us all he plans to send in his Imperial Storm Troopers to crush all freedom rallies like they did in TENEMIN SQUARE

  34. dan says:

    Stanin…used to be that Civil War snipers were viewed
    less than honorable. There is no honor or joy in defeating an enemy…but there is less in being defeated by him.

  35. StanInTexas says:

    Dan, I am not opposed to defeating an enemy, or even taking the fight directly to an enemy. But Jack is suggesting the cowards way. He does not want to face his enemy, but attack innocent women and children. That is a terrorists mentality.

    You have an issue with local LEO’s trying to take your guns, then stand up to them. That cop’s children are NOT your enemy!

  36. Paldin says:

    -Momster, that was funny!

    One of the most likely scenarios for the weapons and military vehicles being purchased is that the feds are preparing for the possibility of economic collapse and the ensuing chaos.

    Some of the reasons why I’m glad I live in Idaho.

    Law enforcement officers, for the most part, really are the good guys and work with people in the community.

    Only riot I can remember was when the neighbor’s cows busted through the fence.

    “Occupy Boise” consisted of fifteen tents and a handful of hippies in drum circles. Most of them came from Colorado.

    Everybody has a gun.

    Everybody knows how to use one unless they’re from California.

    Open carry only scares the transplants from the more populated states.

    Chances that the local LEO’s will help the Feds confiscate guns -0%

    Chances that the local LEO’s will get in the way of the Feds -80%

    Shhh. They’re a surprise for Arizona and Texas.

  41. Jimbo says:

    It would be interesting to know where these are to be deployed. Chicago & Detroit or Tulsa & Abilene?

  42. dan says:

    Asymmetric warfare has no honor…and means employing Psy-ops. The drones will have no mercy…their chemicals and poison gas will have no mercy…THEY
    will have no mercy when they round you up and put you in cattle cars and burn your home and crops. They will not wear red coats and line up to be shot from behind cover (gasp,that would be ‘dishonorable’)and you may well find yourself acting like a terrorist…

  43. Tax Slave says:

    Molotov gave advice to the Russians should the NAZI tanks invade.

    Take a vodka bottle
    Drink the vodka
    Fill with gasoline
    Stick a rag in the top as a wick
    Light the rage
    Throw it on a tank so that the bottle breaks

    A modern variation on the recipe is to add a little laundry detergent to the gasoline.

  44. JACKW33 says:

    Exactly, Wingman. Those that act unConstitutionally on behalf of the government need to be aware that they stand to lose as much as what they wish to take from us. Words like “cowardly” and “dishonorable” will be things of wistful memory the day the police state deems it necessary to send armored vehicles home to home in America, confiscating the rights of American citizens.

  45. StanInTexas says:

    Is this what we have come to? A group of people brave enough to attack women and children, but too cowardly to actually face their enemy?

    I will defend my family and my rights with all I have, even my life. But I will not become what I hate the most.

    All of you that think running away from your enemies to attack their women and children, you are wrong!

  46. Cameraman says:

    Althought all is Fair in Love and War, we don”t need to sink to the Level of How They are! We need only remind them that if they Target Our Women or Children, then all bets are Off, they must at least have this Fear, War is not Pretty or Glory filled, Ask those that have seen the Elephant!

  47. Rise up! Because that totally makes sense. says:

    Do I need to be pointing the FBI to his little nest of crazy?

    In general you are harmless fools spouting comic-book conspiracy theories… but there is clearly a darker undertone than usual all the sudden.

    It isn’t enough to call you crazy people – the likes of Jack are perhaps actually dangerous. Now – see if you can follow here – if I were the government, I could use that exact post above, in context and without editing, to justify exactly this sort of purchase.

    You act like crazy people, and you wonder why you are treated like crazy people?

    C’mon. Think about how you sound to people who aren’t insane.

  50. StanInTexas says:

    Cameraman, I agree with what you said, but that is a far cry from what Jack advocated.

  51. Clingtomyguns says:

    These could do some good rolling through Detroit, Oakland and parts of St. Louis to annihilate drug gangs and ferral mobs, and rounding up the illegal drug lords on the border, but since that would be cutting into Democrap votes, that’s not on the Marxist-in-Chief’s list as disarming law abiding whites.

  52. MadMIkeD says:

    The threat of obama staying in office is a real threat if he has the power to create a state of emergency he wont have to step down as president this is a serious warning

  59. whotothewhat says:

    They can only run as long as they have the fuel to fill them with. I imagine the DHS will be parading these around in the coming months, like at fairs and any type of PR kinda events.

  60. ent says:

    To provide some perspective, these are enough vehicles to provide 10 vehicles for every city in the US with a population of at least 100,000. Or 3 vehicles for every city with a population larger than about about 40,000. In the 236-year history of our country, we have never needed to have armored vehicles spread wide across the continent. Why do we now?

    I try not to be a consipracy theorist, but there are just too many things coming together, and too many Useful Idiots out there who will eagerly support the regime, no matter what they hand down. Seriously, I used to wonder how Germans in the 30s and 40s could turn on their own citizens in the way that they did, but when I see the degree of hate, invective, and mindlessness that defines the American left, I no longer wonder.

  61. JDavid says:

    Dr.9 says: “…will the military comply…”
    Yes, because by then all that will be left in the military is America-hating poofters and bull dykes.

    “Tax Slave says:March 4, 2013 at 10:13 am”

    That’s how a HIPPIE or would be COMMIE does it.

    Seal the neck (Use a screw-top bottle) and tape a book of matches to the side. Throw it at the vision ports/periscopes or the engine deck. Throw another and shoot any survivors that bail out.

    Magnetic shaped charges are great. Paintballs or smoke to the vision ports can blind the drivers and gunners while you sneak up to plant some dynamite.

  63. Sweep the leg says:

    @ Doc

    “…The only real question is, when it hits the fan, will the military comply with their orders?

    Absolutely they will. They take an oath to defend the constitution against ALL enemies. They have seen this domestic enemy trample the constitution, and have…

    The tiny percent that will oppose will be summarily eliminated or jailed.

    All of this because we HAD to bow down to blacks. We HAD to…

  64. KHarn says:

    “Rise up! Because that totally makes sense. says:March 4, 2013 at 10:25 am”

    All right then, WHAT THE HELL IS GOING ON?

    Tell us WHY the EPA, TSA and IRS “need” guns. Tell us WHY the DHS “needs” armorted cars. Tell us WHY the feds are buying a couple BILLION rounds of ammo. Tell us WHY DHS are “needs” assault rifles.

    What about obama’s demand durring his first term for a “national deefence force as large and as well-equiped as the military”?

  66. Robin Thomas says:

    Conspiracy theory? The bullet purchase is fact. The white people targets are a fact. These vehicles certainly look real enough. The FEMA camps are real. The drones are real. There isn’t much to dispute here. The government OBVIOUSLY has the fear that SOMETHING bad is going to happen, whether they engineer it themselves or simply cause it due to ineptitude. The secession talk surely freaked them out as well. The country is a mess, more polarized today than ever before. I don’t see how even the dumbest troll can come in here and claim that all of the weirdness is normal.

  67. Ginsengbull says:

    Don’t worry everybody, it’s probably just a budgetary windfall.

    They have had billions in the budget for a long time for homeland security, and it has been used to buy countless dump trucks and lawn mowers for state and local agencies.

    With this surplus of real useful equipment, they just shifted gears to buy from other suppliers.

    Pelosi, Reed, and 0bama must have bought stock in BAE or whoever makes these, and will sell as soon as the complaints from operators start rolling in.

    These will include, but not be limited too, bad turning circle, unable to go through MacDonalds drive through, the cars won’t let me get to the one diesel pump to fuel up, I need a 5-point harness to wash the windows, they look silly with the compact spare, …..

    They will be donating them to “Friendly foreign governments” in 5 years when the drivetrain warranty expires. Never driven, one owner.
