Preparing for societal COLLAPSE – Why Mark Levin believes the govt is buying vast amounts of ammo

Mark Levin believes that the Obama administration is buying vast amounts of ammo to prepare for the collapse of our financial system and our society, and the violence that might break out as a result.

    Lots of Smoke equals FIRE

    I guess Alex Jones is not crazy after all!

    • I only half agree with Levin. I believe it’s both to prepare for the collapse and for insurrection. Not to stop insurrection however but instead to start insurrection. Think about it. Why are they collapsing the economy? Answer: To create the conditions (chaos) for insurrection in order to overturn the rule of law. Their end aim in everything they do is to overturn the rule of law because no man can rule until they have unseated the ruler. In this case the ruler is THE PEOPLE’S LAW. Why do they ignore the Constitution because it’s the rule of law. We are not a nation of men but a nation of laws.

      • ChesterWalton

        I think Levin is trying to grab and secure conspiracy market share with inflammatory and dangerous suggestions.

        Doesn’t everyone realize the stuff Levin says is all a ruse?

        It is like the land shark is at your door.

        • You’re just mailing it in, now. Some trolls just don’t even try anymore.

        • do you read or just get all of you info from nbc. better wake up

        • 12grace

          Nonsense, Levin has an impeccable record of accuracy and honor. But, YOU on the other hand have no such record. I put my trust in Levin.

          With hindsight being 20/20, if you were on board the Titanic… and someone late at night screamed out “Iceberg!”… wouldn’t you take that a little more seriously? Or would you just pick up a musical instrument and play along with the band.

          Mark Levin is one of the few sane people out there who has truthfully been exposing the threats facing this country from the government and the monster in the WH and he’s doing all he can to mitigate the damage. He’s an American treasure… a hero. If you choose to bad mouth him, lovely. You’ll just go down with the ship and you deserve that fate because you are thick-headed or stubbornly ignorant. Or, you can heed his words and the words of others who see so clearly and head for the lifeboats… helping others along the way.

          And of course, if you’re just trying to attach your less-than-brilliant insights to this site like a tick… then move along. These are serious times and they require serious people. And frankly, the world is too full of critics and nay-sayers… or people sniping from their basements. And trust me, I’m being kind here… just move along and find other liberals who share your limited perspective.

        • debw777

          Yeah, ok. So now YOU explain what the ammo is for? Because that part of his “rant” is a fact.

        • SKL53

          Oh really???? How do you think Hitler came into power??? People never believed he could accomplish what he was set out to do! When you stick your head in the sand you deserve what you get! Mark speaks out to alert us so that we STAY alert! Look what happened on 9/11! We were too complacent. We don’t have to worry about outside terrorists. This dictator in the WH is doing a better job of it!

        • clockwindingdown

          Okay Chester I’ll play along, you tell us why various government agencies are stock piling, considered hoarding if done by none government, rounds of ammunition?

          Please also explain why the rounds are not legal for military use by international law and why then these particular type’s of rounds have been chosen by our government?

          It would seem to any rational thinking person that the “conspiracy”, as you put it, in this case is not from the person trying to reason why government would do such a thing, rather the government as they are actually doing it. Since the Government is actually stock piling ammunition, the only “conspiracy” would be perpetrated by the government from the fact they are stock piling ammunition.

          I realize trolling does not involve the thought process from within ones-self, you merely have to be a drone and do as you are told. By the way the land shark did knock on my door the other day, disguised as a democrat, it wanted to eat away my life through more regulation!

        • Jazzee

          except answer this question please: law abiding gun owners do not murder people and act like criminals so why oh why does the gov want OUR guns and not willing to trample on the ‘rights’ of the gangs/criminals eh?????? the only answer is they want to disarm law abiding and hmmmm wonder why
          YET the scum who want to ban have paid security with GUNS hello don’t you see what is right in front of you yet????????????????????????????????????//

        • So, how is observing this possibility dangerous? He may be wrong, but dangerous? How? I’ve read his article and I wasn’t compelled to run with scissors.

        confiscation is not going to happen at my house.just in case know where the local drone launch sites are available online. know where the local DHS is located available online. just in case you need help.Get all the info you can now and print it.Food for 6 months. Ammo ability to make clean water.

        • B-Funk

          Gosh, 5 years ago, this would’ve sounded crazy. Now, I find myself taking the very steps you’re suggesting. Confiscation won’t happen at my house, either. I will go to jail before I hand over my guns.

          • rascaltherat

            You have to be ready for something more advanced than going to jail. There over 800 FEMA camps in this nation, capable of housing millions upon millions of dissidents. Either comply or die is what’s ahead.

            • B-Funk

              Perhaps, but I doubt it. You’re suggesting very end times stuff. I won’t discount it completely because it’ll happen at some point, but I am very doubtful this is that time. Either way, I’ll die free now or later. Doesn’t matter to me anymore.

        • lanahi

          The federal government also bought most of the long-term food storage from freeze-dried food companies, creating a shortage for private individuals. At the same time, they requested these companies provide a list of their customers. Google it!

          Yes, if economic conditions lead to a collapse, better to have both beans and bullets.

    • jollypolly

      Obama wants complete dominance over America, if He can not achieve that, he will make sure he totally destroys it and its people.

        • You honestly cannot see that this president wants to be/is a dictator? Everything he does is buy executive order, etc. I bet you think obamacare is about healthcare. I am in the healthcare business and it has NOTHING to do with healthcare. Why are people so blinded by this man? It is unreal how duped people are by the eternal campaigner. He is going to help the poor after he gets through paying $1000/hour for golf lessons at a plush resort or after he gets done partying with Beyonce and George Clooney. My God man, wake up!

          • filmclassics

            I presume you believe the recent George Bush is a saint? Never mind he put nearly 5,000 young Americans to death unnecessarily invading a small nation on the other side of the world, that never was a threat to U.S. Did Bush, Reagen, Eisenhower ever spend time on a golf course?? My God Man, WAKE UP!!

        • earlycsa

          Leave Chester alone,he’s just a useful idiot obamadrone.

          Better spend our remaining time getting ready : Food first, water (purification), armed protection, and not just a pistol, and trained more importantly, then maybe some silver or smaller gold coins depending on what you can afford.

      And food and water stores. It would be easy to starve out the rebels. How about food in return for your guns?

      The government also stocked up on long-range food storage products and created a shortage for average citizens a year or so ago. They also asked the companies that sold these long-range foods for lists of their customers. You can google all of this. Here’s one source:

      THEY are ready, are we?

  • 57thunderbird

    This administration is complicit in the coming collapse.

    • TexasPGRRider

      He`s Bustin` a Gut to GET IT DONE !!! Opens the Door for martial law, muzzbro and UN Agenda 21 takeover of America !!! 10 “Fema Zones” are the new states !!! NO MORE Congress, NO MORE Judicial Branch !!! NO NEED for such things with New World Order. Abstract thought ? NOT THESE DAYS !!!!

      • 57thunderbird

        Amen Texas!Amen!The tree of liberty needs an occasional watering with the blood of patriots and martyrs!

      • serfer62

        Martial law in the states is the Govemors choice and no one else. National martial is unjustifiable. Then the states National Guard become the feds worst fear.
        Several weaknesses…ammo storage for security reason will be concentrated. Hollow points especially in 9mm & the flavor-of-the-day 40cals are short range bullets with urban concentrated areas the target rich enviroment.
        Most hunter qualified shooters which outnumber the combined military & feds are mostly long range shooters capable of shoot & scoot.
        However it will start badly for Americans until etrition rears its ugly head for the govorment killers.
        Keep an eye on SWAT teams…

        • TexasPGRRider

          THANKS…Strong & Solid points serfer62 !!! Perhaps the strength of the states is a Good Part of what`s holdin` up implementation of B.O.`s plans. I don`t think he is very concerned over what might be “justifiable” as long as MSM controls general thought. The infiltration of islam is a Reality that DEMANDS to be addressed before things get much worse. Keep in mind, those 10 Fema Zones, Replace the borders of 50 states, and create “zones”, so, however the States` governors wishes are considered, will be determined at a later time…..

  • I agree. Not to mention the brown shirt obama brigade aka citizen militia… dear leader’s militia.

  • 57thunderbird

    Thank you Mark for reaffirming that for me.I have felt like that for some time now,but now that I have heard you saying that you believe it,I don’t think I was going overboard.

    The first step that is necessary for this to happen is the disarming of the population.I somehow don’t believe they are going to find that so easy to do.We the people are sovereign.This nation belongs to us,not to the politicians!

    • YES!! Clapping over here 57thunderbird!!!

      • 57thunderbird

        Thanks ABiC. 😉

    • notsofastthere

      Taking into consideration what Obama has achieved, I’m not so sure we’re in charge anymore. I do hope you’re correct, but I’m not seeing that ‘rally around the flag’ by the majority.

      • 57thunderbird

        Oh,I don’t know.I think there are way more liberty minded people in the nation than most would believe.They are just not paying attention at the moment,When the collapse comes they will wake up.

        • celestiallady

          I think they are awake just being quiet. did you see what happened in Maine the past few days when the Bangor Daily News tried to say they were going to publish those who have guns? Our awesome governor stood his ground and said he would do everything in his power to stop it. to make a long story short the BDN withdrew. the people won.

          • 57thunderbird

            Outstanding.You go Governor!

            • celestiallady

              He doesn’t get enough credit for the good he does. As usual the liberals are always trying to beat him down but he doesn’t put up with it. Not much is out there about him but he is just awesome and is cleaning this state up.

              • 57thunderbird

                I know I was not aware of him or his policies until you posted it

              • 3seven77

                I wish our Governor was awesome. Unfortunately Washington’s Governor, Jay Inslee, is one of the dumbest horsemuffins ever to hit the trail.

                Tonight he held a “news conference” to make a big deal about a leak in the Hanford Nuclear Facility storage tanks. This leak has been around since the 1970’s, it’s not critical, hasn’t affected anything, and even the local media think this was a waste of time.

                And it would be nice if the Governor of our state knew how to pronounce the state’s name. {sigh} It’s Wash-ing-ton. NOT Warsh-ing-ton. Every time I heard this nitwit say “Warshington” I cringe.

                • Suzyqpie

                  At least the media didn’t bludgeon you with the cruise ship. The ship lost power and shut down the midnight buffet. “Nuclear” is a media mother lode so I guess they ran with what they had.

        • FreeManWalking

          Those are the ones that allowed this to happen because they are not paying attention to what is going on, or helped to further the damage because they vote for 0b0 and his ilk looking for a free ride.

          When they wake up, they will be useful as a candle in a hurricane, because they will be shell shocked full of PTSD.

          • 57thunderbird

            Very true on all accounts.They will be on the outside looking in.

        • OneThinDime

          They are started to pay attention in states trying to shove gun control and confiscation. There are a lot of Dem gun owners, a lot of retired and active-duty law enforcement that will not leave their families unarmed, and a whole lot of retired military.

          Saw a few days ago, there have been more background checks since Obama took office than the entire UK population. That is outstanding!

    • OneThinDime

      WI Dems are moving to outlaw hollow points. Scott Walker will drop that in it’s tracks.

    • TexasPGRRider

      My Prayer is We Don`t FORGET That Fact !!!!

  • LibertyByGod

    Good. Alex Jones has been saying this same thing for a long time now. Infowars has been the number one source on top of reporting all about the gov’ts massive ammo purchases for several months. Love how FoxNews is now trying to downplay it on behalf of DHS.

    One thing I’ve learned, and other liberty-loving Conservatives would be wise to do — and that’s not to always dismiss someone just because the MSM refers to them as a ‘conspiracy theorist.’ After enough data is collected, conspiracy ‘theories’ can often be confirmed as conspiracy ‘facts.’

    • sDee

      “Just because its a conspiracy, does not necessarily make it a theory”

    • Jones “traffics” in them, though, for monetary gain. I’ve seen his type come and go. They always find an axe to grind.

      It’s a lot harder to work through these issues than the conspiracy people ever do. It takes organization, meetings, discussion, and people putting forth candidates to office. Guys like Jones and Wiener Nation just agitate and sell stuff.

      I’m sure they cover a sizeable percentage of real stuff, too. That’s part of the schtick. You can’t be all conspiracy all the time or you lose audience.

      The game those guys play is a lot like working metal with a forge and a hammer. You have to keep dipping the iron back into the forge to make it malleable. Too much heat, and you lose your work. Too little heat, and you can’t work the metal.

  • 1endtimes2020

    Obama said all U.S. military will be completely out of Afghanistan, and back home at the end of 2014. So, 2015 will be the year the economy will be manipulated to collapse, with the help of China, that recalls the trillion plus debt we owe them. China will be militarily prepared to invade anywhere. What if Obama allows China to invade the U.S.?? As commander in chief, he could hold off nuclear weapons to stop an invasion. Far fetched? Maybe. Probably? I’m not sure. Nothing will surprise me from the boldness of the enemy within anymore. Our soldiers back home to control the people? It happened in Canada once, under prime minister Trudeau, a hop scotching socialist who visited every communist leader in the world on tax payer money. Forgiving loans and lending more. That’s like the bank forgiving your debt and then depositing the same amount in your account. Trudeau initiated the War Measures Act that involved the military.
    We are in for a big surprise. Okay. let’s say I’m wrong, and I hope I am. But why do events lead me constantly to the same thought?
    Does anyone else out there on this site have any ‘far fetched’ thoughts?

    • notsofastthere

      I have read, although not widely reported, that China is being allowed to buy up mineral rights in the US. They are doing that world wide, but in this country it’s kept pretty quiet. I heard that Russia bought US Uranium mines that were owned by Canada. We’re broke and selling mineral deposits is a way for payback.

      • TexasPGRRider

        It`s known by people in the oil industry but not reported by msm. Wonder why ???

      • OneThinDime

        Sorry didn’t see your post when I replied too 🙁

        • notsofastthere

          No problem, and you’re right. There are so many backroom deals and foreign deals or treaties going on that we never hear about.

      • 1endtimes2020

        Yes, and I heard or read that Hillary had made some agreement with the Chinese leaders about trading land for debt owed. One of the two States mentioned was Michigan. Interesting, since so many muslims live there now, especially in Dearborn. I didn’t hear about the uranium in Canada, but I know there was an investment in the purchase of an oil company in northern Alberta. Chinese investment was in the billions of dollars. Most Canadians were upset that PM Harper would allow this, and PM Harper said it had to be ‘a net benefit’ to Canada to qualify to invest. (Sun News Network) Buying a company is more than an investment, but more of ownership, as far as I understand the difference. But what does Michigan have in resources? I don’t remember the name of the western U.S. State.

        • notsofastthere

          Sorry, I wasn’t clear. Canadian company owned the Uranium mines in the US and sold it to Russia. About a year ago the US had little objection to the sale. Access to the Great Lakes may be an asset for China to own land in Michigan.
          When China buys companies, they have access to all the company technology and research. Many of those companies deal with secret weaponry to the military.
          Insanity….just plain insanity!

          • 1endtimes2020

            It sure is. It just seems that the western leaders think they can negotiate a new world order with China and Islam. They seem to think if they open up trade, somehow that will produce world peace. They just don’t get it–that there are bad guys out there who want one world government, or a new world order, or both, on their terms. Look at the muslims who have Sharia, for example. They will destroy sunnis and any other facsimile of Islam, not just Christians and Jews and other religions. Somehow, again, the secular people seem to believe they’ll get ‘a pass’ on violence.
            There’s the Iluminateti, and the Bilderberg Group, who want a new world order. There’s even talk about a one world ‘religion’—as if Islam will ever merge with Christianity—if they do, it’s to achieve some short term goal. We’ve been providing technology to those who will use it against us. And still, they try to steal more through hacking us.
            If all political parties are involved with this, it has to be the biggest conspiracy in the history of mankind. There’s direction being put out from somewhere—some central place. I think a conspiracy exists when the same thing happens everywhere at the same time. No coincidences.
            I venture to say this commentary is being recorded somehow, somewhere.
            About ten years ago, a computer guy asked if I ever wrote to the government. I said yes. He punched in some letters, and suddenly my letters popped up. How was that “government of the people, by the people and for the people?” Sounds more like “People of the government, by the government and for the government. Something like freedom of the press—only for the press.

    • OneThinDime

      Isn’t Obama trying to sell US land to China right now too?

      • TexasPGRRider

        Tradeout for debt…I believe Mineral Rights INCLUDED !!!

        • 1endtimes2020

          Let’s remember the huge military China has been building for many years. If you Google “What is the status of the military in China today?”, as I did last year, you may see what progress has been made. It explains China’s envoys going to countries all over the world to buy mineral rights, oil, and even companies, to supply their huge military.
          I think it’s a mistake, but government leaders have a habit of doing things they never would talk about during an election campaign.

  • notsofastthere

    We always respect our law enforcement agencies and military, but if pandemonium breaks out – they will shoot if given the order to quell riots.

    • Not all of them notsofastthere. But it will be hard in most cases to know who’s on our side and who’s not.

      • 57thunderbird

        I don’t know about that.The government might want to be careful about asking the military to do that.The guns could end up turned the other direction.

        • TexasPGRRider

          B.O. and his slugbuds have been settin` up the top tier commanders these last few years with Hot Chicks…Oldest trick in the book. They`re fallin` like flies these days and are either retiring early or being reassigned without notice. You don`t have to dig deep to find Tons of evidence. That leaves the CoC Wide Open for INFIL. Lord PLEASE BLESS our Troops, wherever they are !!!!

          • Speaking of which, I read over at FreeRepublic that the commander of the SEAL who shot Bin Ladin is claiming that his statements about being cut off from benefits is counterfactual.

            That’s why you bribe or threaten the commanders: to push them in front of a microphone to tell us the troops are untrustworthy.

            I hope the enlisted men get very cranky about this.

            • You might be better off not relying on VA health care.

              Why is it that Congress gets lifetime benefits and private health care after a few years of “service”, and our military, which put their lives on the line, have to work half a lifetime to earn the VA?

              Society is and has been screwed up. That Russian meteor missed its mark.

              • It was only the herald of SMOD. When SMOD gets here, A Change Is Gonna Come.

                But I agree. I say that if you served, you get lifetime medical insurance. If you served in-theater during a war or in any engagement with the enemy, you get lifetime, gold-plated medical.

                Congressmen and women shouldn’t be paid a “salary.” They should recieve a stipend, and expenses of travel, to-and-from their district only, with some minor provisions for travel required in the performance of their duties. Their “medical” should be something they cover themselves.

          • 57thunderbird

            Good point TexasPGR.Patreus comes to mind as an example of what you are speaking of.

        • OneThinDime

          I agree! Cut military meals, cut their pay, increase their health care costs and expect them to kill law-abiding American citizens? Nope.

          • 57thunderbird

            My thoughts exactly.GMTA.

    • toongoon

      Obama is buying groups by giving them special rights and the military is recruiting those who are faithful to his administration.

      • notsofastthere

        I suspect that’s why he has an accelerated push to allow immigrants to join the US military.

        • toongoon

          Sure, “undocumented aliens, Muslims, homosexuals, anyone who lacks an attachment to America or her morals.

        • OneThinDime

          Our faithful military will leave them as dust if needed to defend Americans.

      • Just like the Chinese did when Tiananmen Square happened. They rounded up some yahoos in the outer districts and told them the protesters were subversives (just like the Homeland Security people keep saying about the Tea Party patriots).

        The Party gave them some privileges, and they happily came in an “restored order.”

    Oh they’ve been a prepping, just check out the total amount the DHS has spent the past couple of years. This accounts for at least 1/3 of total US federal spending. Entitlements hell!:

      RIGHT, Richard !! I just happened to be listening to AJ a few weeks ago while working around the house via . This ammo acquisition was the topic, he was interviewing an insider on the subject, and taking phone calls.

  • The Constitution is in need of major repair. After the smoke settles, we need people like Mark Levin to be 2nd founders. All three branches are in need of major changes. Mark has shown through his writing as well as his daily radio broadcast that he has a secure grasp of the history and where we need to change.

    Or, we could approach Sen. Bob Menendez or Jessie Jackson Jr. to fix things!

    • sDee

      The Constitution is not in need of major repair. Combined with the Bill of Rights’ first 10 Amendments, it is the most singular concise and brilliant document in history. We should never again let politicians near it. We must hold them to it.

      We need to repeal most of the Amendments after 10th – starting with the 17th.

      We then need politicians that will remove and repeal all legislation, regulation and government agencies that do not fall within the constrained powers prescribed.

      • 57thunderbird

        Absolutely correct.

      • OneThinDime

        I agree with you. The only changes to the Constitution that make sense are repealing certain amendments. We also need a Constitutional Amendment on Voter ID, marriage, term limits, SCOTUS judge on motion by the people, mandatory recussal of SCOTUS justice for conflict of interest, people must have ability to sue and remove elected officials for treason, dereliction of duty, high crimes and misdemeanors, and a few other things.

        • sDee

          When I hear of new Amendments I try to sort out first… is the proposed Amendment simply a crutch for our politicians’ failure to enforce existing law? And secondly, if not, can it be done with new/modified legislation? And third,, can the legislation not be left to the States?

    Comrade Obama knows full well that Communism won’t come about in the United States until there is a civil war between the Left’s “Red Army” and the Right’s “White Army”.

    Levin is too kind in his opinion that they’re just preparing for civil unrest. Does he really think that the Left will have an epiphany and realize that their policies are to blame for said unrest, and that we’ll go towards free market capitalism? No chance. The Left will double down on their policies; they’ll advocate and then implement a top-down centrally-planned authoritarian dictatorship, thus enabling them to crack down hard on the rioting/unrest, but also achieve their long held dreams of establishing a Communist dictatorship in the United States.

    I just hope I’ve emigrated before that happens.

    Guns And Ammo Production Maxed Out: “This is a Society Preparing For War”

    Smith & Wesson-is running at Full capacity making 300+ guns/day-mainly M&P pistols. They are unable to produce any more guns to help with the shortages.

    RUGER: Plans to increase from 75% to 100% in the next 90 days.

    FNH: Moving from 50% production to 75% by Feb 1st and 100% by March 1. Remington-Maxed out!

    Armalite: Maxed out.

    DPMS: Can’t get enough parts to produce any more product.

    COLT: Production runs increasing weekly…bottle necked by Bolt carrier’s.

    LWRC:Making only black guns, running at full capacity…can’t get enough gun quality steel to make barrels.

    Springfield Armory: Only company who can meet demand but are running 30-45 days behind.

    AMMO: Every caliber is now Allocated! We are looking at a nation wide shortage of all calibers over the next 9 months. All plants are producing as much ammo as possible w/ of 1 BILLION rounds produced weekly. Most is military followed by L.E. and civilians are third in line.

    MAGPUL is behind 1 MILLION mags, do not expect any large quantities of magpul anytime soon.

    RELOADERS… ALL Remington, Winchester, CCI & Federal primers are going to ammo FIRST. There are no extra’s for reloading purposes… it could be 6-9 months before things get caught up. Sorry for the bleak news, but now we know what to expect in the coming months. Stay tuned, we’ll keep you posted…

    It wasn’t just the AR-15s, the AK-pattern rifles, the M1As, and the FALs that were sold out. It really hit me when I realized that the World War-era M1 Garands, M1 carbines, and Enfield .303s were gone, along with every last shell. Ubiquitous Mosin-Nagants—of which every gun store always seems to have 10-20—were gone. So was their ammo. Only a dust free space marked their passing. I’ve never seen anything like it.

    Every weapon of military utility designed within the past 100+ years was gone. This isn’t a society stocking up on certain guns because they fear they may be banned. This is a society preparing for war.

    1.6 Billion bullets is enough to shoot every American citizen 5 times over. Well, that’s convenient, as they will limit the magazines to 5 rounds, so one mag per citizen ought to do it without ever breaking their own laws.

    Sometimes, a conspiracy theory is not just a theory. It’s too convenient for this administration to scream conspiracy every time we get too close to the truth. When they do scream that, they can then just dismiss us as nutcases and move on with what they have planned.

    Back in the 50’s, we trusted our government. We believed they were there for our good. Perhaps, we should have mistrusted them way back in the 30’s, when they started all their progressive actions to take over the country. Then we wouldn’t be in this mess we find ourselves in today.

    We had better take a good look around ourselves and ensure that we are prepared for what is about to happen to our country. I know I am.

    • 57thunderbird

      And a complicit media makes it possible to do.They have been complicit to the progressive agenda for many decades.

  • If it ever comes to that, you will also need to be thinking about whether or not this nation will be vulnerable to invasion from another country. The most likely scenario would be an invasion through Mexico by some third party, probably China. It wouldn’t be an invasion of the entire country, but certainly some of the border states like Texas, Arizona, or California. If we are that weak and incapable of fighting back because of massive civil unrest, you can be sure there will be nations on this planet just itching to assist the Mexicans in giving us some payback for what happened to them in 1848. And if they can take back Arizona or part of California, they will do it if the time is right. The US Army (what’s left of it after the economic collapse) will have its hands full simply maintaining order in this country, let alone have enough resources to fight a major threat coming up from Mexico. Just something to think about.

  • n2dstormwego

    1.6 billion bullets is probably more than most of us can visualize. I understand that most of the rounds ordered represent pistol ammo. Here’s a visualization that I came up for myself just to get an idea of what 1.6 billion rounds would look like. Using a .40 S&W round as the typical, a box of 50 (like what I get at Wal-Mart) measures 6.25” T x 3.25” W x 1.5” D. So let’s say we go out on the highway, place a box of 50 onto the pavement on its short side (1.5” x 3.25”) and then keep standing up boxes of 50 next to each other until we’ve used up the 1.6 billion rounds or 32 million boxes of 50. When you’ve finished standing up your boxes, your line of boxes will be 757.58 miles long… which would almost get you from Dallas to Atlanta. WTF do they need that much ammo for?

    • sDee

      We might be thinking defense instead of offense.

      The guillotines of France were commissioned and dispatched in large number to efficiently eliminate and intimidate populous opposition to the ruling class. When the people finally revolted these machines were put to good use on the elites and their bureaucratic minions.

      Our elites might might want to be thinking how loyal their minions are.

      • Nukeman60

        That’s a good point. Those 1.6 billion rounds would look good in our stockpiles, should we need to take them. 🙂

    I think millions of Americans would step up if obama attempted to infringe upon our constitutional rights along with sheriffs and law enforcement officials in many states and the administration shouldn’t want to go there. I’m waiting for another Waco while praying that it doesn’t happen.
    The divisiveness obama has practiced from day one and which has been one of his favorite tools has inflamed the country and many people are becoming a little anxious. It’s not unrealistic to think his chicanery just might bite him in the ass. We saw this before with Bill Clinton and Janet Reno, but Clinton had a clear head. I’m not sure obama is even remotely as intelligent as Slick Willie was.
    When you see leftists rooting for a rogue cop killer you know there are people out there who aren’t thinking too clearly and you would be advised to examine your options.

    • sDee

      Stories like this stockpiling, and the amateurish back stories put out around Aurora and Sandy Hook, do one thing very well regardless of the real intent. They fuel deep distrust of government. Deep enough to trigger another Waco or worse.

    Re: armed revolt and civil disobedience…
    According to the GAO, there are about 50,000 law enforcement personnel distributed through 45 agencies. These are full-time agents, authorized to execute searches, make arrests, and carry firearms. Add in some 7,462 Customs agents the total approaches 60,000. This doesn’t include contract personnel, military CID forces or personnel from agencies with less than 25 officials in law enforcement.
    All of these agencies are armed with military weaponry and SWAT teams. Couple that with the military arming of state, county and local police and then tell me we aren’t living in a police state.

  • colliemum

    Mark Levin has, I think, made the right diagnosis.
    Don’t forget that these ammunition buys started early last summer, way before the elections, way before Sandy Hook, and way before all this hysteria about gun control.

    I think the House should immediately stop all payments for ammunition by these entities, and should ask them to show their need. Publicly.
    They should also demand these entities show their plans as to why so much ammo is needed by them, and when they cannot, as surely the cannot – demand the ammo is sold back, else their budgets will be reduced by the amount spent on bullets.

    Some enterprising people might think about how to get their hands on allthat ammo. Don’t think the criminals haven’t thought about this, perhaps even done someraids already.
    Don’t forget that in the eyes of the socialists, criminals are victims, and belong to the class which they want to protect. Just recall the tweets, facebook stuff and indeed TV presenters all loving them a bit of that LA shooter.

They want anarchy in the streets, they want total and utter economic chaos, they want rioting, they want looting, they want blood spilled on the streets, they want a total and utter break down of society – Because THEN they can come riding in on a white horse, and say “We can restore order and peace, but only by implementing a Communist dictatorship where we have the power to do what must be done.” Nobody, at that stage, will be left to stop them. They’ll just do it. There will be martial law, curfews, executions for rioters/looters, executions of all their political opponents (from their “enemies list”), the abolition of all property rights, and basically just implement the Communist manifesto right here in the US.

  • DawgByte

    Why is the government procuring so many bullets? It an interesting and serious question that needs answers.

    I believe a full-blown race war will occur in my lifetime. The tension between, blacks and Hispanics and whites & blacks is boiling under the surface all across the U.S. and Obama is only making the situation worse with his class warfare and bitter partisanship. When Latino’s outnumber whites in this country the proverbial poop is going to hit the fan.

  • I’m a big fan of both Levin and Malcolm (Andrew is a friend, in fact), but I had a special forces buddy of mine read through the IBD piece last week and run the numbers, which I sent on to Andrew, who is using his sources in the military community to look into them. Here’s what my friend noted:

    “[…] If you click through the two articles, to get at where his ‘5.5 million rounds per month’ number comes from, you’ll see why. Soldiers in a combat zone don’t shoot much – not only do the combat zone soldiers make up a small portion our our nation’s military, but they are too busy running missions/operations to sit around training. The numbers would be similar if you were measuring how many pairs of running shoes they go through – choosing combat zone soldiers to cherry pick those facts is stupid – soldiers in combat zones don’t spend much time running on the track either.

    “From that same article, you’ll see that the DoD ammunition allotment for training is: ‘Subsequent to 9/11, … the total DOD training requirement increased to 1.1 billion rounds per year.’ There are only a couple million people in the military. These numbers that people are freaking out about, ‘Oh my god, they bought 150,000 rounds of ‘sniper’ ammo’ or ‘The police state bought 26 million rounds combined, of mixed ammo types’ are a trivial drop in the bucket. They are several orders of magnitude away from being even minorly significant, but these authors want us to believe that they are non-trivial NOW.

    “To put it in perspective, I was once on a 10,000/month training regimen. Sure, that is absolutely not typical. But I was personally going through 120,000/year, and my unit was in the combined tens-of-millions. There are thousands of SWAT teams around the country, and I’d guess they probably average 500-1000/mo minimum per officer.

    “Until these numbers were in billions per year, I wouldn’t even blink. In a different perspective, if you take this number of bullets (21 million) Homeland Security is buying, civilians are buying 1/10 this many GUNS PER MONTH (2.4 million)!

    “These numbers seem amazing when they put them in these articles. ’21 million! That’s a lot!’ You start putting them in perspective, and they are laughably small potatoes. I’d like to see the amount of ammo estimated that civilians buy. I bet it’s several billion per month.”

    He then followed up:

    “The numbers are only billions across several years (duration of contracts, and all the purchases that those who believe in the “stockpiling” theory are adding together). In any given year, it’s only hundreds-of-millions.

    “I poked around, and found articles that said NYC trains several thousand police officers through the police academy each year. That’s one of our largest cities, but lets very conservatively say that each state matches about what NYC does. You’ve instantly got hundreds of thousands of trainees (e.g. 3000 recruits per year * 50 states = 150,000). Now, how much ammo do you shoot in a trip to the range, 100-300 rounds average? So letting all these recruits go to the range ONE TIME results in a national expenditure of 15-45 million.

    “Or, flip the numbers. Here we were using 3000 recruits, 50 states, and 100-300 rounds. Instead, let’s call it 100-300 TSA agents per state, 50 states, and they shoot 3000 rounds a year. Boom – 15-45 million again, just for the TSA agents. And we haven’t even started to talk about all the other armed employees that fall under DHS (e.g. border patrol, customs at airports, ATF agents, nuclear reactor guards, security on government installations, etc.).

    “Any way you slice the numbers, they are not very big. It only takes a few hundred to a couple thousand armed employees per state, going through a couple range sessions or training courses that cause them to expend a few thousand rounds, and the fact that we have 50 states (plus some “territories”), and you’ve instantly got 8-11 digit numbers. The fact that people are emotionally shocked any time they hear the word “billion” thrown around has little to do with fact that these numbers are easily explainable, or even seem low.

    “Americans alone use 50 BILLION bottles of water a year, and it’s not like we beer-bong 300 of them in an hour, every couple weeks. Pretty much any benign topic, when reviewed in the context of the entire country, is instantly skyrocketed into the billions. Much more ammunition is used for training to fight than actually fighting, that you are unlikely to ever notice the numbers of ammo that would be being “stockpiled”. Your indication that something was going on would be a huge increase in training, and thus training ammo consumption. The “stockpiled” ammo has far too low a signal-to-noise ratio to be easily seen.”

    This is a topic we’ve discussed on several occasion at protein wisdom, and the feeling among my regular commenters is that, if we’re seeing anything here, it’s just that the government is profligate: one commenter noted that the various federal agencies require that their agents train with the same ammo that they carry, meaning that they are using 9mm and .40 hollow-point premium defense ammo to go plinking, where ball ammo would do just as well and is significantly cheaper. Combine the government’s contracting out for large orders with the run on guns and ammo Obama’s gun grabbing intimations have engendered, and I think this explains the dearth of readily available ammo for civilian stockpiling, along with the inflated prices.

    Incidentally, if you’re reading this, Brian, you should link my site on your sidebar. It’s info-licious!

    I hear they are hoarding MREs too.

    The English version of Pravda (yeah it’s still around) thought it necessary to remind us of the historical fact that in 1917 the first move the Red Army made was to take away all privately held guns. This well armed population was what allowed the various White factions to rise up, no matter how disorganized politically and militarily they were in 1918 and wage a savage civil war against the Reds. It should be noted that many of these armies were armed peasants, villagers, farmers and merchants, protecting their own. If it had not been for Washington’s clandestine support of and for the Reds, history would have gone quite differently. . Governments will use the excuse of trying to protect the people from maniacs and crime, but are in reality, it is the bureaucrats protecting their power and position. In all cases where guns are banned, gun crime continues and often increases. As for maniacs, be it nuts with cars (NYC, Chapel Hill NC), swords (Japan), knives (China) or home made bombs (everywhere), insane people strike. They throw acid (Pakistan, UK), they throw fire bombs (France), they attack. What is worse, is, that the best way to stop a maniac is not psychology or jail or “talking to them”, it is a bullet in the head, that is why they are a maniac, because they are incapable of living in reality or stopping themselves.

    I think they’re cornering the market on current supplies to prevent our citizenry from stockpiling it any more. The manufacturers won’t be able to produce fast enough to restock the shelves for a year, sooooooo 2013 is going to be a very vulnerable year. I read that the type of bullets the Feds are buying up are the type you and I would buy, NOT what the military buys. So, the kind of bullets that are used for target practice are the ones in short supply.

  • conservativemama

    I heard this and it scares me because it’s a plausible explanation. If you know history, if you’ve seen what’s happened in others countries when the financial system collapses, you know to be worried.

    Again,the mind reels. How did we reach this point and how do we restore sanity to our country?

    • notsofastthere

      Congress has created such a large bureaucracy that no one knows what’s going on. Even congressman have to read the papers to know what is going on down the hall from them.
      Often, when asked a question, they say I only know from what I read in the paper.


    They are buying ammo for obama’s private Army being trained now, and to protect this Government of tyranny from “We the People” that own it.

    Do any Right Scoopers have any data on the percentage of LARGE city police chiefs that are members of the Progressive Police Chiefs of America? Just wondering.

    • Injainjuneers

      Looks like Los Angeles Police Chief Charlie Beck may be. He is loved by the progressives, and cost LA taxpayers millions by refusing to enforce the law against the occupiers. In fact, when they were occupying private property of a bank, instead of enforcing the law and the bank’s rights, he went out and chatted amiably with the lawbreakers.

      • Grumpa37

        Yes, you’ve identified one for sure. Has LA media reported anything honestly? Your friends need to know what you know, but keep your tone as bland as you can. When Eric Holder met with several Progressive Police Chiefs, I was able to get several names. The exercise wasn’t encouraging, but we do know to listen for cues in liberal code.

    The deepest tragedy would be to witness the freest society founded by the noblest of men and women disintegrating into a reign of terror conducted by a totalitarian regime, and knowing that it was completely avoidable.

    I just got this from my Federal Credit Union: Look at it folks, this is what Mark Levin is talking about:
    Re: Transactions Limitations Policy

    A federal law, known as Regulation D, requires that all financial institutions, including your credit union, limit withdrawals from share/savings accounts. This law allows members to conduct up to six withdrawals from a share/savings account per month. Any withdrawals in excess of the six per month allowed, forces the credit union to take action on your account.

    “What types of accounts are limited by this law?”
    Regular share or savings accounts are subject to this law, as are money market accounts. Your checking account is not limited by this law, and you can make unlimited withdrawals from your checking account.

    “Which transactions count toward the six allowed?”
    The following combined transactions cannot exceed six per month:
    •Checks or drafts made payable to third parties;
    •Debit card purchases;
    •Preauthorized or automatic transfers to a third party (including ACH transfers);
    •Transfers initiated through online banking;
    •Telephonic transfers (including calls to member service representatives or automated audio response programs);
    •Transfers to other accounts at the credit union;
    •Transfers to accounts at other financial institutions;
    •Faxed requests for transfers;
    •Text message requests for transfers

    This law does not limit the number of deposits into a share or savings account. Rather, it limits the number of withdrawals from share, savings or money market accounts.

    “What about loan payments that come out of my share/savings account?”
    If the loan is at the same financial institution as the savings account, payments on the loan will not count toward the six-transaction limit. For example, if your mortgage payment is automatically deducted from your savings account each month, it will not count toward the six-transaction limit if both the mortgage and the savings account are at the same financial institution.

    “What happens if I exceed the six-transaction limit?”
    Effective March 19, 2013, Air Force Federal Credit Union will reject transactions in excess of the six allowed. If an item in excess of six is paid by the Credit Union, a $5.00 fee may be charged to your account.

    “How can I conduct my transactions so as to avoid exceeding the limit?”

    •Plan your budget and transactions in order to make one or two large withdrawals or transfers to cover your bills per month;
    •Consider using your checking account to pay regular bills.

    They are buying ammunition for the same reason that the Fed buys treasuries. To drive up the price.

    Wow, something must be in the water! Maybe in the food also.

  • Fear. That is the basis of republican thinking. Look at the Bush years, no problems solved, no issues addressed. Just waste, fraud, death and destruction, based on his voting base being a bunch of shivering cowards, clutching their guns, worried about Saddam attacking them, demonizing anyone who disagrees with their lunacy.

    For what it’s worth, I believe Mark Levin does not go far enough in his assessment of Obama’s plans for all the ammunition he is buying. Make no mistake about this issue. The government is not buying all of this ammunition; Barack Hussein Obama is buying it for his civilian army with our tax money. I believe it’s not a matter of violence possibly breaking out. I believe Barack Hussein Obama is planning to foment an insurrection using his *agents provocateurs {SEE BELOW} so that he will have an excuse to murder Christians, Jews, and conservatives who oppose his Socialist/Marxist agenda for America. Through media propaganda he will probably make it appear that these civilians (Christians, Jews, and conservatives) are terrorists and that they must me abolished with any necessary force to protect America from them.

    *agents provocateurs – Persons employed to associate with suspected individuals or groups with the purpose of inciting them to commit acts that will make them liable to punishment.

    Agent provocateur
    From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

    “Traditionally, an agent provocateur (plural: agents provocateurs, French for “inciting agent(s)”) is an agent employed by the police or other entity to act undercover to entice or provoke another person to commit an illegal act. More generally, the term may refer to a person or group that seeks to discredit or harm another by provoking them to commit a wrong or rash action.

    An agent provocateur may be a police officer or a secret agent of police who encourages suspects to carry out a crime under conditions where evidence can be obtained; or who suggests the commission of a crime to another, in hopes they will go along with the suggestion and be convicted of the crime.

    A political organization or government may use “agents provocateurs” against political opponents. The provocateurs try to incite the opponent to do counter-productive or ineffective acts to foster public disdain—or provide a pretext for aggression against the opponent.”

    My personal observation: “Agents provocateurs” sometimes commit a crime acting as a member of a group in order to place guilt by association; i.e. they might murder someone of high standing and allow themselves to be caught so that they may plea bargain and place blame on the group or the leader of the group.

    The thing many are missing here is that you have to believe the likes of Big Sis when they say this vast amount of ammo is for training.
    How in the hec do we know they are actually training at the implausible rate they would need to with the mountain of ammo they have contracted for?
    We don’t and it’s highly doubtful they are.
    The United States has become an armed paramilitary camp since 9/11.
    DHS has funded the militarization of every police dept in the country.
    Sheriff Andy and Barney don’t exist anymore.
