Obama’s Ammo-Buying Binge

Why do you suppose the Obama Regime has been amassing such gargantuan quantities of ammunition for extra-military purposes?

In a puzzling, unexplained development, the Obama administration has been buying and storing vast amounts of ammunition in recent months, with the Department of Homeland Security just placing another order for an additional 21.6 million rounds.

That’s on top of an already clearly excessive stockpile.

According to one estimate, just since last spring DHS has stockpiled more than 1.6 billion bullets, mainly .40 caliber and 9mm. That’s sufficient firepower to shoot every American about five times. Including illegal immigrants.

To provide some perspective, experts estimate that at the peak of the Iraq war American troops were firing around 5.5 million rounds per month. At that rate, DHS is armed now for a 24-year Iraq war.

Does Janet Napolitano believe her own department’s fanciful propaganda regarding the likelihood of a right-wing insurrection? Doubtful. Mark Levin suggests that the purpose is to prepare for an imminent economic crisis and the chaos to follow. As usual, the Great One is right.

Not all Democrats are idiots. Those in charge know that Obama’s Cloward-Piven spending spree will eventually end in total economic collapse. This is the only possible outcome and therefore the only possible purpose of our government’s economic policy.

Our liberal ruling class is losing patience with decades of incremental Marxism. They are one deliberately engineered crisis away from going for the gold: genuine Stalinism.

Anyone who finds this outlandish needs to read up on Obama’s background.

His Department of Homeland Security will have five bullets for each of us when the American people get the fundamental transformation so many were such contemptible fools as to ask for. Don’t worry, chances are good you won’t get shot if you do exactly as you are told.

Now we know why the Regime and its mouthpiece, the “mainstream” media, were so appallingly eager to seize on Newtown as a pretext to begin disarming us. The Left is approaching the end game.

Hopey Change has been implemented before.

Hat tip: Right Scoop.

    We are just one “crisis” away from real tyranny. I mean real, jack-booted, kick the door down, guns drawn tyranny.

    I love how they constantly justify a billion and a half rounds of ammo for “training purposes”, etc.

    So…the people who run the DMV, the VA, Social Security, Medicare, Obamacare, Fanny Mae and Freddy Mac, ect. etc. are to be trusted with that kind of fire power, but YOU, you evil, extremist, Tea Party whack job…YOU must turn in your guns and are not to be trusted.

    …from my cold, dead fingers!

    What secret plan indeed? An interesting question would be how many guns each executive branch agency has compared to the ammo they’re stockpiling.

    Anyone find it appalling we’re told we can’t afford to fill up our carriers so that real military personnel can protect our country;

    But yet Obama can charge for enough bullets for the flunky bureacraps in DHS and Social Sec. to shoot all of us five times over on the overdrawn 16 trillion in debt credit card – where the hell is any Republican congressional oversight and hearings on this?

    Is Obama going to start passing out Obama Saturday night specials along with Obama phones to the welfare class and new welfare colonists, or arm a new urban army of Black Panthers when the civil war starts after he finishes crashing the economy?

    If that’s it, or Uncle Mort’s freakshow department is going to try to man up and shoot American citizens or herd them up for FEMA camps they better start taking some lessons at the range pronto.

    I’ll take the shooting skills of a dozen oath keepers or American hunters any day over a batallion of Washington bureacrats or welfare parasites.

    As for my guns –

    Molon labe, Uncle Sap!

    I'm sure that's what the libs will be repeating to themselves over and over when they're being taken by the truckload to "government housing" in order to be "protected" from the eeeeeeevil Tea Partiers, too.

    just back from a gun show…believe I’ll have a cup of

    Precisely, Laurie. Always wondered as well what the libtards will think as they’re led up to the block to have their heads removed by their new Islamonazi rulers: “But, we’re on your side! We love you! Ya know, “COEXIST,” and all that happy crappy . . .”
    Thunk! Bump! Roll!

  6. IslandLifer says:

    Can you read the writing yet? Republicans? Lol!!! This country has turned it’s back on God. Brace yourself.

  7. DonB says:

    The second amendment doesn’t explicitly say anything about ammunition. It only mentions arms.

    They are stocking up before banning possession of ammunition by mere peasants.

  8. dan says:

    No one ever talks about the minute-men anymore….
    citizens who could drop their routine at a moments notice and arm themselves to do BATTLE (not hunt !)

  9. Bob says:

    they don’t have enough police to do this. In Illinois alone 70 sheriffs have said they will not support gun control. The feds are outnumbered and I’m guessing many federal agents do not support it either. I’m wondering if Obama isn’t trying to take guns away by buying them all?

  10. Mr Evilwrench says:

    In order to have a “civilian national security force” that’s just as powerful, just as strong, just as well-funded as the military (man, that sounds so familiar, but I can’t quite place it), we need a two prong approach: we need to weaken military spending, and we need to waste a lot of money on this “civilian” thingy. I reckon they’re going to be buying up a few truckloads of UMP40s to use that .40SW HP in.

  11. Tim says:

    They may have 5 for me but unless they send an entire battalion after me I guarantee I have more than 5 for each of them, not that Ill need that many

  12. Dr. 9 says:

    The Marxist-in-Chief knows what he has planned for this country, and he figures even the sheep-like American people won’t be pushed that far. The ugly dyke running the Dept. of Homeland Stupidity tried to say they needed millions of round of Hollow Point handgun ammo for “practice”. No one, but no one, uses Hollow Point ammo for target shooting. Those rounds are designed for combat.

    Here’s a little something most people are not aware of. Buried deep in the 2700 page Obamacare law, there’s a section that says, “guns and ammo cannot be outlawed, regulated, or confiscated.” Check it out.

  13. wingmann says:

    I put 450rds through my PERSONAL DEFENSE WEAPONS today…yummmmmmy.

  14. Dale says:

    There are far more of US than there are of them and we are just as well armed. Any government official that would take up arms against citizens will find themselves on the run.

  15. A. Levy says:


    Looks like Obama should have read the “Obamacare” law before he signed it, or, he was so eager to get “Obamacare” that he didn’t care about the “gun owners” clause that was in it! So, Obama was either stupid for not reading the bill OR knew the clause was necessary to get his “Obamacare” passed, so that his ego could soar!

    Wednesday, it was discovered that hidden deep within the massive 2800-page bill called Obamacare, there is a Senate Amendment protecting the right to keep and bear arms. It seems that in their haste to cram socialized medicine down the throats of the American people, then-Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-CA) and Barack Obama overlooked Senate amendment 3276, Sec. 2716, part c.

    According to that amendment, “the government cannot collect any information relating to the lawful ownership or possession of a firearm or ammunition.” This means that the government CANNOT mandate firearm registration. No registration, no confiscation.

    Poor ol’ Joe Biden, he spent the last couple of weeks focusing on making a law requiring registration. Good thing is though, the amendment also states that “not even an executive order can override the amendment.”

    CNN is now referring to it as “a gift to the nation’s powerful gun lobby.” And according to Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid (D-NV), that’s exactly right. He says he personally added the provision in order to keep the NRA from getting involved in the legislative fight over
    Obamacare, which was so ubiquitous in 2010.

    It looks like Harry Reid actually helped out firearm owners without even realizing it? Thanks Harry!!

  16. Henry says:

    Not going to end well for government and their flunkies…

    A couple million government flunkies with enough ammo to shoot every American 5 times.


    100 million lawful firearm owners with 30 10 7 rounds to shoot every government flunkie intent on disarming Americans.

    You do the math.

  17. dan says:

    dang… just added it up and it ran $173 for amo….
    being able to punch a hole in an engine block….

  18. Jack Reid says:

    Obamas is a nut job if he thinks the very right wing Republicans in the Military will follow his orders when he sends them out. Night of the long knives part 2 anyone?

  19. Elizabeth says:

    Don’t get too excited with the thought of tens of millions of patriots outgunning a million or so government flunkies. They know that most law enforcement & military will fight with the citizens. That’s why it’ll be foreign UN troops doing the dirty work.

    We are gonna need much more than ammo. I really think only God can save us now. Start praying if you aren’t already.

  20. Xavier says:

    Does anyone know how these ammo purchases compare to the past? If it’s really for practice, as the feds claim, shouldn’t previous years usage be comparable? Even if there are more agencies now the per shooter numbers should be somewhat close.

  21. Gyrwan says:

    “They are one deliberately engineered crisis away from going for the gold: genuine Stalinism.”

    FYI, Step 1: eliminate media’s ability to wage propaganda … completely.

  22. figment says:

    Elizabeth says:

    That’s why the big push for the drones on our soil.
    Death from overhead, even if they are not armed, are going to be a big psy-ops to the populace.

    The sheep will be running into Agenda21 housing for “safety”.

  23. Zachriel says:

    There are nearly 100,000 federal officers, everything from rangers to guards. The purchase is spread over five years. That’s a couple thousand rounds for each officer per year, including ammunition necessary for training.

  24. boatail injection says:

    How many rounds have you been able to buy lately?
    They will stockpile for the length of their contracts,by then the ammo manufacturers will be of no use to them and will go out of business by executive order and America will vomit up its freedoms and become the hell hole Obama and the progressives want it to be! While like any third world sh-thole they grind it into the ground to their benefit! just sayin!

  25. Flu-Bird says:

    LENNIN,STALIN,HITLER,MAO,POL POT,KRUSCHEV,CASTRO,IDA AHMIN,OBAMA all tyrants prefer to disarm their subjects before they round them all up into CONCENTRATION CAMPS and GULAGS and their building CONCENTRATION CAMPS here in AMERICA

  26. Passably Affable says:

    Has anyone looked into whether this is even true? This has been spread around so much, and I think the original source for the allegation is Alex Jones.

  27. master of sinanju says:

    I believe in capitalism BUT the ammo vendors sure are stupid. Like the commie said: We will sell the west (ammo vendors) the rope with which we will hang them with.

  28. JDavid says:

    B. Hussein Obama/Soetoro/Bounel has a good buddy (who wrote his first book) who has plans for the uncooperative who need re-edjakatin’:

    Stalin killed over 20 million people without compunction, who knows what Hitler/Mao/Ho Chi Mihn/etc adds up to, and I doubt that Harrison J. Bounel has an ounce more conscience than any of them.

  29. Belfast says:

    Don’t count on US soldiers taking it out on US citizens.
    When WW1vets camped on Washington to get money owing to them it was the US. Army (Patton and MacArthur) who got rud of them.
    And these citizens were all vets!!

  30. TED says:

    Ghetto ammo, .40 caliber and 9mm it would take 5 each shooting sideways, gangsta style to hit ANYTHING. Guess who he is arming.

  31. David says:

    So if we know that tyranny is just around the corner with Obama, why would anyone sale ammo to them? That is like pointing your own gun at yourself and pulling the trigger. Suicide. Why help a dictator like Obama shred the Constitution and oppress the American people by selling him ammo?

  32. Flu-Bird says:

    Mao Si Tung was by far the 20th centuries all time worst mass murderer Terrrorists leader YASIR(thats my baby)ARAFAT was giving standing ovations while weilding a pistol at the UN and Fidel(busyw hiskers)Castro was also given standing ovations by these UN wretches

  33. Spider says:

    Has anyone bothered to ask why govt. agencies like the Dept. of Education, Agriculture, etc. need heavily armed “agents”?

  34. got kool-aid says:

    Why does the immaculate christ messiah, the Chicago Jesus, need guns and protections? We are mere worms compared to the one who is the greatest human ever to live! Hail Hail the Godking, Hail Hail Imam Hussein the immaculate!

  35. […] Obama’s Ammo-Buying Binge Why do you suppose the Obama Regime has been amassing such gargantuan quantities of ammunition for extra-military purposes? […]

  36. junior says:

    Ammo…Ammo….Ammo folks! If there ain’t no ammo – our guns are useless.

  37. xafarafax says:

    The advantage of the gun goes toward the aggressor. If the government pays nicey-nice, calls you up and says “Hi, this is the upcoming totalitarian government. Just checking that you’ll be home between 6PM and 6:30 so we can pop around and shoot you. No? Would it be better if we moved it to tomorrow?” then you’re in good shape.

    It’ll probably be more to the tune of: you wake up, have some coffee, toast and bacon for breakfast, wash up, get dressed, on the way to work by 8:15 as usual, on the highway, off the highway, right turn, left turn, red light, .300 winchester magnum round pierces the trachea and common carotid artery, you try to scream but only blood comes out. This ties into a subscription for Guns and Ammo you got two years ago or a “like” for Moonbattery’s facebook.

    The average American gun owner is a responsible, employed citizen and often a Christian. This means they have highly predictable behavior, their location can be determined on nearly a minute by minute basis. The surprise elimination of key resistance figures would be child’s play when they’re on the road/at work/ at the dinner table/in the shower/in bed at almost the exact same time every day.

    Even after the oppression gets overt I wonder how many conservatives will be so focused on protecting personal property that they’ll be totally ineffectual from a tactical standpoint, choosing to protect their house and nothing else in lieu of coordinating into any sort of guerrilla faction of unified front.

    David Koresh and his group holed up for 49 days with the BATF and FBI negotiating surrender for 48 of them. What were they waiting for? Perhaps they were hoping for the righteous conservative gun owners of America to outflank Janet Reno and her fascist thugs and break the siege and stick it to the evil Clinton regime. Fat lot of good that did them.

    Now imagine if the BATF/FBI had no qualms regarding due process, negotiations or accountability and instead of 70+ Branch Davidians with modified, high grade weapons we have… well, fill in your own blanks.
