It has been reported from multiple locations acroiss the country that the Obama Administration is repositioning their Homeland Security ammunition containers. The containers (like those pictured) are usually painted olive drab and are unmarked except for indistinguishable numbers/letters, most likely for inventory, routing, etc.
One contributor to TheGatewayPundit.com, who witnessed just such a relocation reported:
"I passed a convoy of olive drab unmarked 40 foot tractor trailers each with four 10 yard ammo bunker boxes chained to them and unmarked armored Hum-Vee's heading north on I-95 in Brevard County, Florida this past Thursday morning.
"[Apparently], the [government] is positioning these ammo storage boxes, I have been told, in strategic places in population centers around the country. They are usually painted olive drab and are unmarked except for indistinguishable numbers/letters probably for inventory, routing, etc."
Obma's Homeland Security Department has purchased 1.4 billion rounds of ammunition -– that is not a typo -- during the last six months.
AmericanThinker.com reported in September of 2012:
"The Department of Homeland Security has purchased 1.4 billion rounds of ammunition- that is not a typo -- during the last six months. This includes 450 million rounds of .40 hollow point, 200 million rounds of .223 rifle ammunition, and 176,000 rounds of .308 168-grain hollow point boat tail (HPBT) that is used almost exclusively as ammo for sniper rifles.
"From beforeitsnews.com we read:
"'Why is everyone all up in arms about the recent purchase by Homeland security of 1.4 Billion rounds of ammunition?
"Our undeclared Foreign War in Iraq Consumes about 70,000,000 (70 Million) Rounds of Ammunition Each Year, which would take about 20 years to consume 1.4 billion rounds of ammunition ordered by the Department of Homeland Security alone, not including all the ammunition ordered by the weather service, Social Security, etc!...
"Is the Department of Homeland security to protect us from foreign terrorists, or to protect the central government from the American people?'
"Avoid any political discussions about Obama's infamous 2008 quote, lest your blood pressure dangerously rise.
"'We cannot continue to rely on our military in order to achieve the national security objectives that we've set. We've got to have a civilian national security force that's just as powerful, just as strong, just as well-funded.'"
"Let's put these DHS numbers in perspective. An Arleigh Burke-class guided missile destroyer displaces (weighs) 9,300 tons. 1.4 billion rounds weigh around 28,000 tons, three destroyers' worth, so to speak. It takes over 1,200 18-wheel trucks to move that much ammunition. That's the equivalent to a line of single trailer trucks, parked end to end, almost 14 miles long.
"There are 314 million Americans, men, women and children living in the United States this morning. This year alone, DHS has purchased four rounds for each and every American."

Editor's Note: Alright...this is getting to be quite enough with these people. Why do we need DHS to have more ammunition than our troops had in Iraq?...It's time for even the most daft Obama supporter to start questioning the motives of this administration, free stuff or not...
