DHS Buys 2,700 MRAPs (Video)

% of readers think this story is Fact. Add your two cents.

This is getting a little creepy.
According to one estimate, since last year the Department of Homeland Security has stockpiled more than 1.6 billion bullets, mainly .40 caliber and 9mm.

DHS also purchased 2,700 Mine Resistant Armor Protected Vehicles (MRAP).

Modern Survival Blog reported:

The Department of Homeland Security (through the U.S. Army Forces Command) recently retrofitted 2,717 of these ‘Mine Resistant Protected’ vehicles for service on the streets of the United States.

Were not just talking APCs here, we are talking MRAPs, which are specially built to withstand IEDs.  Wait, IEDs in America?  DHS is preparing for something inside the United States and while thebuying of millions of rounds of ammo andguns is suspicious, this takes the cake. -Mort

      Maybe they’re taking precautions against nutjobs like yourselves who want to overthrow the government.

      • war blur

        I think that’s right. The teabillies will be placed in FEMA camps, and fed kale, for their own protection.

        • Equalizer

          @war blur, same recommendation…look into meds reduction.

          You need to realise that there is no nwo taking shape, its been in place for thousands of years already, and the idea that it was in the making is just to keep ppl looking left while they are already ripping you off on the right, you really think there is more than one governement ruling this planet at this point in time? really? Take a closer look bud……….

      Obama Gestapo!!! He knows we’re not going to give up our constitutional rights, thus his plan is to depopulate america except for those who denounce GOD, not ALLAH his God!! They must accept Obama as there new master!! Hey obama you should have studied American History, we won’t go without fight and you’re gonna need about another 2000 of those paytoys, plus a whole lot more ammo! As a christian you should now how this plays out!!! YOU LOSE!!!

      Sequester hasn’t kept money from being spent on 2700 Armored vehicles to be used against American citizens!

      Creepy? Scary? Nah, go back to watching the Kardashians folks. Nothing to see here.

      Well isn’t that lovely but My 338 La pua armor piercing will go right on through. I dam sure would not want to trust it.. Now if I only had a few thousand rounds we would stand a chance. But I am not so sure our Homey Landers are willing to die fighting Americans….Just my Opinion :cool: :cool:

    • Anonymous

      Apparently they expect things to get bloody. I sure wish Janet Nepolitano would get a Congressional subpoena to testify about why she’s purchasing all these toys when money is apparently in such short supply that we have to “sequester.”

    • PhotoSponge

      If there’s no problem now with immigration, then why do they need all these “tanks?” A little–no, a LOT–suspicious to me.
      And GK, it’s always our right to overthrow the government if they are trying to destroy
      us; we like to do it by something called the “voting process.” And it that doesn’t work….

    • wanda

      You are creepy Mort… your name means death… your name might as well be corporation… corps… CORPSE.

    • HereAmI

      Just in time for Purim…

    • PhuckObama

      Amazing how many gutless cowards rush to defend the very government that would cut your throat in an instant! All these Pro Obama, Pro big government, lazy food stamp collecting bottom feeders should be lined up and ran down with one of the tax payer funded Mraps!

    • clockwork angel

      yeah one day Obama’s going to cut your welfare and not gonna be your “babies daddy” no more, all he wanted was the vote and sooner or later he is gonna stop paying for your huggies and kool aid..your getting what you voted for so get ready to bend over and take it honey boo boo while the rest of whats left of the free citizens of the United States stands against what is clearly wrong.

    • Solo

      How would you stop that thing??

      Mraps can be easily stopped you just need a bigger Ied, even the Iraqis blew up a few of our tanks with large ides and guess what folks this is America. We have every thing we need to repel and defeat any enemy including Tanks. So don’t sweat the mraps.

      When welfare checks and food stamps are down sized, the MRAPs will come in handy to protect liquor stores from being looted, and also prevent women from being carried off. The rioting will end when the MRAPs start distributing packets of pure heroin to the disenfranchised and down trodden.

    • Sid

      Resistant to IED’s; I wonder if they are resistant to molotov cocktails.

      As far as their stockpiling ammo, they are mostly going for pistol ammo. In a war, a pistol is a weapon of last resort; it is short range and underpowered compared to a rifle or shotgun with slugs.

      I normally enjoy reading through the comments listening to the sheep cackling each other with the catch phrases of the talking head media, but in this case it is not enjoyable due to the clear fact that we are paying for our own enslavement. DHS is a domestic military force, as if the local police, county sheriffs, state police, FBI, US Marshall’s, and any other one I forgot were not enough. 1.6 billion rounds, some may argue our government has a tendency to buy in bulk…lol…But this is real, Mine Resistant, as in the MR in MRAP, I can remember the last time I read about someone stepping on a mine or being killed by an IED domestically. If the sh1t ever really did hit the fan with a foreign nation, isnt that what the real military is for, and their armor. People need to wake their drugged minds and look at what is happening right in front of them…
