DHS' War Preparations

There's a reason that it's hard to find ammo these days.

It's called Department of Homeland "Security."

The Department of Homeland Security is set to purchase a further 21.6 million rounds of ammunition to add to the 1.6 billion bullets it has already obtained over the course of the last 10 months alone, figures which have stoked concerns that the federal agency is preparing for civil unrest.

Think that's a lot?  A little?  Here's a comparison:

...during the height of active battle operations in Iraq, US soldiers used 5.5 million rounds of ammunition a month. Extrapolating the figures, the DHS has purchased enough bullets over the last 10 months to wage a full scale war for almost 30 years.

Well!  That should be sufficient, right?

How come there's no constitutional right to ammo? Buy more bayonets!
