In the last year and a half the Department of Homeland Security has purchased upwards of 2 billion rounds of ammunition that many believe will eventually be used within the United States and on the American people.
The alternative media and even a few select mainstream reporters have heavily questioned these purchases and theorized about their actual purpose, with many coming to the conclusion that there is simply no other explanation as to what DHS has planned other than confronting some sort of massive civil unrest.
More recently, over a dozen Congressman have either individually demanded answers from the DHS or have signed onto a letter calling for an investigation into the ammo buildup.
On Friday March 15th, New Jersey Congressman Leonard Lance, speaking at a Morristown Tea Party Organization meeting, was asked about the Homeland Security ammo buildup by a concerned citizen.
In response to the question Lance called for Congress to immediately get involved and demand answers from DHS Secretary Janet Napolitano.
I think Congress should ask the Department about both of those issues and I would like a full explanation as to why that has been done and I have every confidence that the oversight committee should ask those questions.
Congress has a responsibility to ask Secretary Napolitano as to exactly why these purchases have occurred.
Less than a week later, during an interview with We Are Change reporter Luke Rudkowski at the annual CPAC convention, Congressman Timothy Huelscamp revealed that DHS had actually refused to provide multiple Congressman with any information on their massive ammo buildup.
