What is the DHS preparing for?
This is a discussion on What is the DHS preparing for? within the UFO's, Zombies, 2012, Aliens, Mayan, End of the World, Apocalypse forums, part of the General Discussion category; They are already in control....
They are already in control.
There was a discussion in the office during lunch, yesterday. As usual, it was political in nature. I was doing my best to stay out of it and play spider solitaire on my damnable Verizon tablet, but when I heard someone say, "As long as we have the second amendment we won't see tyranny."

As far as the founding fathers would be concerned, we are living under tyranny and arbitrary rule, today. Our present state has been a long time in the making, and due to the incremental increase of it, you don't even recognize what is right before your eyes. The second amendment doesn't have the ability to prevent the nation from being blind and ignorant, and it can do nothing in and of itself. The nation has elected the lesser of two evils for so long that evil is in total power and we are too stupid to realize we have been played. Now, how is the second amendment going to fix that?"
I then went back to playing spider solitaire. After all, I was talking to a room of people who have all been voting for evil.

Liberty Rules! Freedom is necessary! Rights are owned by the individual and if the government does not protect them then it is time to feed the tree of liberty!
Among the natural rights of the colonists are these: First a right to life, secondly to liberty, and thirdly to property; together with the right to defend them in the best manner they can.
I did not make any assumptions. Millions of people believed the same thing I did.............that the federal government was involved in a massive ammo grab.

Excellent explanation, Paul. Seems to make perfect sense to me. At least we know that the ammo shortage is due to private citizens stockpiling the ammo, and not the feds.

I know that I simply can't afford to take my AK or my 30-30 to the rifle range very often, simply because of the COST of the ammo, especially the 30-30.
I like it that we have a more well-armed citizenry than before, and that these "new" gun owners are taking the hijacking of our freedoms so seriously.
Preppers are buying up the 22lr
Not a problem we can go south of the border where there are no guns, we will have to drink tequila, is that OK?

How do we know we can trust you?

Civil liability and ease of supply chain is the reason.
Way to many "experts" who dont know their butt from a hole in the ground post the very same thing every time this subject comes up.
And, again, read the contract, instead of the internet hype.
OH wait a minute, then you couldnt look like an uneducated troll..........
