The Department of Homeland Security has plans to buy enough ammunition to fight the equivalent of a 24-year Iraq War – on US territory – and even US congressmen don’t understand why.


Smack in the middle of the smoking gun-control debate, and despite deep spending cuts across the American heartland, the Department of Homeland Security (DHS) wants to buy 1.6 billion rounds of ammunition over the next five years.

Reports began surfacing in April, 2012 that the DHS, a government agency created in the aftermath of the attacks of September 11, 2001, had begun arming itself to the teeth. Now, several US congressmen are attempting to get some answers, but so far they have been greeted by a deafening silence.


Speaking on the sidelines of the Conservative Political Action Committee (CPAC), Congressman Timothy Huelscamp said the DHS has refused to answer questions from “multiple” members of Congress regarding the plans.


“They have no answer for that question. They refuse to answer that,” Huelscamp told Infowars and We Are Change reporter Luke Rudkowski on Friday.


Huelscamp then questioned the stockpiling of bullets at a time when government offices around the country have been forced to tighten their belts as part of the so-called sequestration.


“It comes down to during the budget process, during the appropriations process, are we willing to hold DHS’s feet to the fire,” the Republican asked. “We’re going to find out… I say we don’t fund them until we get an answer.”


Recently, Californian Congressman Doug LaMalfa and 14 other House members wrote a letter to DHS Secretary Janet Napolitano, in which they suggest that the bullet hoarding is designed to create a shortage of ammunition in the country.

Who are they buying the ammo from, are there ties between any Gov officials and the ammo manufactures?

Yes, money. Ammo manufacturers are capitalists. They want to sell as much as possible.

I find it very disturbing that congressmen cannot get a straight answer, or have any control over this entity. The dhs is becoming a gestapo force. It should be immediately disbanded & neutered. Don't bait them with questions for lies, just defund them. They have no constitutional right to exist. We are not a police state, & we should not be making any moves to become one.

Libs don't like dhs, either, right? This should be an easy process... something we can all agree on. Defund & defunct dhs NOW!!

Liberal citizens don't like DHS either, but both Republicans and Democrats in the Congress do.

Ammunition manufacturers and the federal government.
