    The Department of Homeland Security is under investigation for purchasing large stockpiles of ammunition, days before legislation was introduced that would restrict the amount a government agency can legally buy.

    The Government Accountability Office is now conducting the investigation into the alleged DHS purchases, which is “just getting underway,” GAO spokesman Chuck Young told US News & World Report.

    DHS officials have repeatedly denied stockpiling ammunition, but AP reports claim that the agency plans to buy more than 1.6 billion rounds of ammunition over the next four or five years, and has already bought 360,000 rounds of hollow point bullets and 1.5 billion rounds in 2012.

    DHS claims that it is buying ammo in bulk to save money, but experts have pointed out that hollow point bullets cost nearly twice as much as full metal jacket rounds. They also explode on impact for maximum damage, which has caused some Americans to wonder what purpose they would serve the DHS domestically. Purchasing 1.6 billion rounds of ammo would also give DHS the means to fight the equivalent of a 24-year Iraq War. Members of Congress say the DHS has repeatedly refused to tell them the purpose of procuring such large amounts of ammo…..

    That picture always gives me a chill. The New World Order police state is here.
    Switzerland is being reminded just now that it gave up its sovereignty to the EU and immigration is no longer a choice of member states. Next item in Europe will be a European Armed Forces.

      Already happening, it’s The European Gendarmerie Force.

      Predominantly Eastern European grunts and German officers.

      Specifically designed to restore order when it is considered that the law enforcement and military of an offending member state will be likely to be unwilling to use force against the citizens of that state.

    “Switzerland is being reminded just now that it gave up its sovereignty to the EU and immigration is no longer a choice of member states.”

    I checked on that today, and Switzerland is NOT a member of the EU.

      Although it is not a member of the EU, Switzerland has had a pact with Brussels to ensure the free movement of citizens to and from the bloc since 2002.

        Not any more.

    I would be more worried about this if our entire federal government wasn’t the “Gang That Couldn’t Shoot Straight”. Just look at Obamacare.
