Obama Drying Up Ammo Sources?

Since the first rumblings heard around the country that the Department of Homeland Security (DHS)(Big Sis) was stockpiling huge amounts of ammunition, theories have abounded. Big Sis’s explanation was they were saving the U.S. taxpayers money by purchasing in bulk. After I got up off the floor and went and washed up and put on clean, dry clothes, I rationally concluded that it is highly unlikely that Big Sis, or any other government agency was looking into saving taxpayers money. I mean, come on!

The frontrunner in conspiracy theories was that Homeland Security was preparing for civil unrest, especially when we learned Big Sis was also buying up used, light-armored tanks. Of the remaining theories, the only other one that seems to hold some water, given what information is easily available, was that President Obama was looking to dry up ammunition sources available to private citizens; kind of a back door attempt at repealing the Second Amendment.

Perhaps now the most serious effort to promote that theory comes from Senator James Inhofe of Oklahoma. He states:

“Let’s make sure that your audience out there is aware, Aaron, that our president, Obama, has been doing everything he could to stop the private ownership of guns in America,” Inhofe said. “You know that, everyone knows that. And yet he’s been voted down in a big way by a large majority. And so my feeling is that he’s doing this to buy up [ammunition] so that we can’t buy: Honest, law-abiding citizens here in the United States, like my son, can’t even buy ammunition because government is purchasing so much.”

Senator Inhofe evidently believes this strongly enough that he is planning to introduce a bill that he says will limit, “non-defense, armed federal agencies to pre-Obama levels of ammunition” and have the General Accounting Office audit non-military organizations like DHS, to account for what they are using the ammo for.

Regardless of whether President Obama is deliberately drying up supplies of ammunition or private gun owners are buying it all up due to planning ahead and fear, or a combination of both, it is extremely difficult to purchase any ammunition anywhere. Pity those who did not plan ahead.

If Obama is attempting to circumvent the Second Amendment by owning all the ammunition, I think the president has lost sight of, or he never had it to begin with, the fact that this is America. These are Americans and they WILL find other ways of getting their hands on ammunition. Perhaps not to the same amount of ammunition available now or the same price but it will be there.

In addition, if this theory were to hold true, then the citizens would need to question whether the President’s motives are to circumvent the Constitution or keep ammo out of the hands of criminals. Criminals will always have “black market” items. History has proven that. Therefore, a move such as this would be directed only at ensuring an unarmed populace.

But if you agree with Obama, then you will repeat his words and say I am only “gumming up” the works.


Day 83 – No Executive Orders


83 days and nothing has been posted on the White House website about 23 executive orders on gun rights/gun control. But not to fear. I’m sure the President was deep in thought and planning during his rounds of golf over the past two weekends.

Big Sis Lies Again – Puts Border Patrol at Risk

Is it not enough that Big Sis lies to lawmakers and Americans and tells them she’s saving money by purchasing ammunition for the Department of Homeland Security (DHS) in bulk? Here’s the latest from Janet Napolitano. In an email sent from DHS to the Border Patrol, DHS tells agents Big Sis has a shortage of ammo and therefore cannot use extra ammunition for proficiency training.

Enforcement Personnel,

Due to budget concerns and ammunition availability, we will not be getting issued any proficiency ammunition for next quarter. In addition to these reductions, we are also being limited to qualification ammo only. What this means to you is that you will not receive the normal 150 rounds for practice and we will not have any extra ammunition for a combat course following normal qualifications.

If you have the ammunition available and would like extra practice during your qualification day, the firearms instructors will have a training course available for Indio Station Personnel, keeping in mind basic marksmanship skills as well as tactical training with a limited amount of ammunition. You are not required to bring your own ammunition.

If you do not have extra ammo to bring, you will be given extra time to clean and maintain your issued handgun as well as station long arms.

If you have any questions about this quarters (sic) quals please feel free to send me your concerns.

There are some estimates that calculate DHS has purchased in excess of 1.6 billion rounds of ammunition in the past few months; enough ammo to carry out a 40-year war by some estimates.

Is this a scare tactic or more accurately, putting in harms way border patrol agents as a means of playing politics with sequestration? Or perhaps Big Sis is withholding all that ammo for something planned that only the Obama Administration knows about. She has 2,700 plus tanks too.

For an administration that promised to be the most transparent in history, when they consistently and persistently take the time for dog and pony shows, like the fake signing of executive orders and addictive lying, why should there exist an ounce of trust between the American people and this corrupt administration?

Long Lines to Buy Ammo

At a gun show over the weekend in Kalifornia, lines formed for hours of people waiting just to buy ammunition. In Texas, like much of the U.S., ammunition is difficult to purchase anywhere. It is even effecting law enforcement training and qualification.

And gun and ammo manufacturers say they are making ammo as fast as they possibly can.

Who’s The Best Gun Rights Supporters?

According to the Wall Street Journal, all the hoopla about making access and ownership to guns more restrictive, states proposing and passing bills to ease restrictions on guns far outweigh anti gun legislation. But most wouldn’t know that because the biased media works very hard to ensure that we don’t get any truth – only a perpetuation of anti gun hatred. Thank you WSJ for revealing this information.

John McCain Dumb as a Fox

My advice to readers is to pay little attention to what the media wants you to hear or read that Sen. John McCain says. It is seldom the truth or at least the truth with any real outward meaning. According to a report from The Hill, McCain says he doesn’t understand the threats coming from within his own party to filibuster the Senate anti gun bill.

“What are we afraid of? Why would we not want… if this issue is as important as all of us think it is, why not take it to one of the world’s greatest deliberative bodies – that’s one of the greatest exaggerations in history by the way – but you know why not take it up, an amendment and debate. The American people will profit from it,”

McCain may be a master at saying what the people want to hear in order to appear as though he was looking out for their best interest, while doing everything he can to fulfill his own mission. Examine the words he chooses – “world’s greatest deliberative bodies” (meaning both the House and Senate); “What are we afraid of?”; “The American people will profit from it.”

Some form of an anti rights gun bill will come out of the Senate but it is quite certain to fail in the House and McCain knows that. McCain fears for any power he may lose through filibuster powers and the fact that it appears his outdated crony republican party is on the way out. This must be troubling, not only to him, but for the Council of Foreign Relations, among other entities, that might be fearing the loss of McCain’s power and influence. He needs all the help he can get and will resort to saying things that mean little concerning issues but has everything to do with retaining his power.


Big Sis Needs Another 360,000 Rounds

According to Infowars, the Department of Homeland Security announced it has just ordered another 360,000 rounds of .40 caliber, hollow-point rounds for “training.” The same source says it was only last month that DHS purchased 240,000 rounds.


Day 67 – No Executive Orders


Day 67 and President Obama has yet to post his 23 executive orders on gun control on the White House website.

There’s Nothing to See Here! Move Along Now!

In an article found at USNews, the Department of Homeland Security is saying that any notion that they are purchasing or have purchased 1.6 billion rounds of ammunition is business as usual. Enough ammo for a 20-plus year war is normal DHS business?

I’m Just Too Confused!


If you will recall a few weeks ago in Maine, a bill was proposed that would protect the personal information of those people holding a legal Maine concealed carry permit. Due to a FOIA request from the Bangor Daily News for that information, Gov. Paul LePage pushed through an emergency injunction that would put a stop to the release of that information until such time as the Legislature could consider a proposal that was on the docket.

This week the bill that had been introduced by Rep. Corey Wilson, R-Augusta, LD345, that would prevent anyone from having access to personal information, reached the legislative committee and was tabled by chairwoman, Sen. Linda Valentino, D-York. The committee vote to table the action followed along party lines. Sen. Valentino was quoted as saying: “the panel needs more time to consider a complex amendment offered by another legislator.”

Certainly, far more complex bills than this simple bill have come and gone from various committees. Why does the democratic chairwoman think this bill is so complex? Maybe she just doesn’t like it.



Day 66(6) – No Executive Orders


It is Day 66(6) and Barack Obama is probably planning his next White House party for the weekend of NCAA Basketball’s Final Four. He certainly has not followed through with his promise to write 23 executive orders about gun control and post them on the White House website. I wonder if he is waiting to see what kind of anti Second Amendment legislation gets passed and then he will circumvent that by crafting his executive orders?


New York, New York! It’s a morons kind of town!

Actually, this behavior reminds me of what the Vatican has, over the centuries, taught their members. Squeal on others who are breaking the laws of the Pope. In New York you can now earn $500 by reporting someone as owning illegal guns. Gee, that’s where I want to live. NOT! And for those of you who will think it anyway, I’ll already tell you to put on your tin foil hat because I’ll just ask, what comes after ratting your neighbor out for money on guns?

Big Sis Hogging Ammo?

CNS reports that police departments can’t find enough ammunition and Big Sis has bought 1.6 billion rounds this past year. Hmmmmmmmm!

Happy Ending!

Two men invaded a home in Texas. A woman was home alone and called her husband. He came home, got the, “GASP”, gun out and shot and wounded one of the men. Now the good part. The men turned their own guns on themselves and blew their brains out.

MoveOn.org in Mourning

And asking for money! But not to necessarily pick on MoveOn (I try to imagine members as human beings), all of the NGOs, including the NRA, exploit everything going to ask for more money and make more promises.

MoveOn.org is so sad because Fascist Feinstein can’t get her assault weapons ban by Harry Reid and they fear none of their hoped for anti American, anti Second Amendment gun bills will pass muster in Congress. But fear not oh radical perverts, haters of individual liberty. You still have the despot in chief, Barack Obama, to write up his executive orders to accomplish your goals. Hang in there.

Death of Gun Control?

Adam Winkler at The Daily Beast wants to know if Fascist Feinstein’s assault weapons ban bill death is also the death of any proposed gun control. Gun control advocates, the media and the Obama Administration would like for you and I to think that way. That will make it easier for them to slip their gun control acts through; perhaps into other bills or using Barack’s magic pen in signing executive orders.

Some will think that even if no anti gun bills get past, no damage has been done. Not true. The divide among the people has widened and with that the ability to conquer has become a bit easier. There are a few more holes in the fort walls and Americans should watch closely for two events to occur. One is that politicians, well paid by the gun haters, will try to sneak through legislation and/or beware of Obama’s promised executive orders.

However, the most detrimental event that is going to happen is another Sandy Hook kind of event. These anti gun fascists will not rest, ever. They want our guns because it is the last bastion to ward off totalitarianism and complete despotic rule.


Day 63 – No Executive Orders


We have reached Day 63 and President Barack Obama has failed us miserably in that he has perpetuated his lies of promise to provide 23 executive orders on gun rights limitation. Nothing is posted on the White House web site in this regard. It is impossible for me and the rest of the American people to scrutinize and offer honest assessments of the President’s plans of Second Amendment destruction if we are not allowed access to the details of those plans. Do they even exist?


I have written about and questioned on this blog before about why the Department of Homeland Security needs to be purchasing as many as 1.8 billion rounds of ammunition as well as 2,700-plus light armored, surplus army tanks. (Here and here)

The video below has captured New Jersey Congressman Leonard Lance answering a member of his audience about Homeland Security purchasing all this ammo and tanks. He says he’s concerned and wants Congress to investigate and DHS to come up with an explanation. I say he’s lying and is saying what he believes is necessary to cover his ass from the onslaught of angry people……but I might be wrong.

According to Guns and Ammo, they have taken the time to list the United States in order of ranking from most friendliest gun state to the worst. Follow the link to find your state and ranking. Here is a list of the criteria they used to compile points.

* CCW/Open Carry: Only states that don’t require a permit for concealed or open carry scored a perfect 10 in this category. Everybody else was judged accordingly.
* MSRs: States with no restrictions on the kind, type or number of modern sporting rifles (ARs, AKs, etc.) that can be owned or purchased scored a 10 in this category.
* Class 3/NFA: The majority of states allow their citizens to own Class 3/NFA-type firearms (machine guns, suppressors, short-barreled rifles, etc.), provided they follow the federal licensing standard, but not every state is yea or nay.
* Castle Doctrine/Stand Your Ground: States’ scores were determined based on how strong your the law is regarding self-defense in and out of the home, and whether in the right you’re immune from civil prosecution.
* Miscellaneous: How pro-gun the state culture is has a lot to do with scoring in this category. Scores are based on the percentage of gun owners in the state, if there are any restrictions on gun or ammunition purchases or magazine capacity, pending pro- or anti-gun legislation, CCW reciprocity, and any restrictions on guns that not covered in the other categories.


Day 62 – No Executive Orders


Day 62 and still we find no executive orders on gun control posted on the White House web site.

As if I need to provide further proof that politicians, regardless of pedigree and liars and hypocrites. That pretty much applies to anyone associated with them. You see political office is no longer a position for a public servant. It’s a career and when careers are involved lying, cheating and stealing become the norm…….like we should be surprised right?

Therefore it comes as no big surprise to learn that Gabriel Giffords, former U.S. Congresswoman from Arizona who suffered wounds in a shooting rampage by a deranged idiot, posed with an AR-15 rifle and deliberately made attempts to deceive her constituency by appearing to “toughen her image.” Hey! Anything for a vote is the unspoken motto of slime ball politicians.

The latest uproar happened when some angry Arizona law enforcement officials thought there was a degree of hypocrisy taking place when Giffords used an “assault weapon” to steal votes and then turn around and become involved in efforts to ban the very same tool used for vote stealing.

According to the NRA, NBC news reported that the NRA would not oppose the expansion of background checks involved with purchasing firearms. NRA states that; “This statement is completely untrue.”

The more stories like this one I see, the more I am becoming convinced that the effort by the Department of Homeland Security to buy up 1.8 billion rounds of ammunition might be for the purpose of keeping it out of the hands of citizens. I would sooner think that if DHS was buying more calibers than basically two.

No fewer than 10 states have introduced pro gun bills that would directly oppose proposed federal legislation to limit gun use, access and ownership. CNS News wants to know if Barack Obama will turn a blind eye to the anti federal gun laws in the same fashion he has claimed he will not prosecute on recent states’ marijuana laws.
