    AP verifies story of Homeland Security buying 100 years of bullets, poor fool hawcraper

     

    You see, hawcraper, I do see some extreme rumors, but I verify them as true before I post, which is why you should NEVER question what I post as fact.

    "Online rumors about a big government munitions purchase are true, sort of.

    The Homeland Security Department wants to buy more than 1.6 billion rounds of ammunition in the next four or five years. It says it needs them — roughly the equivalent of five bullets for every person in the United States — for law enforcement agents in training and on duty.

    Published federal notices about the ammo buy have agitated conspiracy theorists since the fall. That's when conservative radio host Alex Jones spoke of an "arms race against the American people" and said the government was "gearing up for total collapse, they're gearing up for huge wars."

    The government's explanation is much less sinister."

    Of course the government has an explanation that is less sinister, duh, what did you expect from the Obama administration that is virtually never truthful and then only by accident?
