On July 5, the Department of Homeland Security announced on the FedBizOpps.gov website that it plans to buy thirty-six Colt LE901 rifle systems. The latest DHS purchase follows a solicitation issued on July 13 for the purchase of .223 Caliber Remington Enhanced Performance Ammunition…The Colt assault weapons are designed to accept the .223 ammunition.
I saw the original announcement that DHS had ordered some 450 million rounds of .223 ammo. It concerned me because I immediately thought they were preparing for war on Americans. The ammo is not allowed under the Geneva Convention and it certainly isn’t “practice” ammo.
And now this?
The weapon is much more than your typical .223 Ruger Mini-14. It will allow “the DHS…foot soldier [they have foot soldiers?] to go from assault rifle to picking off “terrorists” [who would they be, exactly?] at a distance [how far away? 1,000 yards? 2,000 yards?] by only changing the upper receiver.” In other words, it’s a sniper rifle that DHS is ordering, designed to pick off terrorists at a distance.
The article also noted that DHS is ordering bullet proof booths of some kind—9,300 hundred of them, so far—that are being planned for “checkpoints” inside the United States.
As Inforwars says: “It looks like the DHS and the feds are gearing up for something big…”
Where are the Congresspeople on this? Where are the questions? The investigations? The hearings? The explanations? The silence is eerie.
