untaken_name: I'm actually a lot more worried about the 1.2 BILLION hollowpoints the DHS has recently ordered. Link
gameshowhost: *reads*Yup. Alex Jones. He's got an amazing record for uncovering plots and simultaneously not whiffing on everything else he proclaims./so i was told, just recently
BravadoGT: propasaurus: So, back during all the furor in the aftermath of the movie theater shooting, gun rights supporters were telling us that one guy buying 6,000 rounds of ammo is not something that should raise a red flag; it's perfectly reasonable for one person to have that much ammo.Now, a government agency buying 46,000 rounds of ammo is cause for concern and indicative of some deep dark government conspiracy.But if 6k rounds is an appropriate amount for one person, maybe the NOAA is just buying ammo for 8 guys. No big deal.Why does the NOAA need any ammo?
BostonEMT: /I wonder what would happen if Joe-Schmo tried to order 46,000 round of FMJs.
OriginalGamer: BostonEMT:no - they are questions whose answers are classified, no *apparently* good reason./please feel free to give us the answers.How about this: Get out of Moms basement, put away tinfoil hat, and if you ever spout 9/11 conspiracy crap to me in person, I will gladly take possession of your balls, and you won't be getting them back.
Oldiron_79: Why does the NWS need ammo? I mean I'm not wanting to jump aboard the Alex jones train, but can someone seriously answer me what they do that they would need it for, I mean its not like you are gonna shoot a tornado with your glock or something.

No big deal.Why does the NOAA need any ammo?You didn't RTFA didja?It was really for NOAA's Dept. of Fisheries, which had to deal with drunk fishermen and drug smugglers on the open water without any backup.But they still wouldn't be allowed hollow points. Since they have been outlawed in combat for over a hundred years I would think that they wouldn't be used by law enforcement either.
Captain_Ballbeard: dittybopper: Katolu: Want to have some fun? Go to the site Abovetopsecret.com and have a look around./was a member for a while but kept getting threatened because I dared try to debunk a stupid "conspiracy". Glad I escaped.Every so often, when I have the time, I'll listen to Alex Jones on shortwave. It's actually kind of funny.Alex Jones serves his purpose. When people start looking at the Grassy Knoll, he starts screaming about Elvis being spotted nearby in a UFO. Perps whistle and walk away.If you listen to SW you know what S/N is. Alex's job is to be the N."Missiles on 9/11 planes, thermite, Elvis, fake OBL. Cui Bono? What does that mean?", asks Alex Jones, Mike Ruppert et al.
meanmutton: untaken_name: BostonEMT: untaken_name: I'm actually a lot more worried about the 1.2 BILLION hollowpoints the DHS has recently ordered. Linkyeah, but remember, DHS has what? - 8 or 10 agencies under it, so they could be buying ammo for the whole lot (save for the secret service)... the coast gaurd is one of them too... divide that by how many employees?, how many of which are "officially" armed and need to re-certify every year?, yadda yadda yadda... lobster bisque...http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/United_States_Department_of_Homeland_Sec u rityYes, but do they need enough hollowpoints (which are action rounds, not target rounds) to shoot every American three times? Really?They're not training with target rounds.
mister aj: Case-in-point 3: Why is our "president" spending 2 mill of taxpayer money on lawyers to keep his birth certificate sealed, and to fight any attempt in court to unseal it? No previous president has done this, but then previous presidents have been legal Americans.
Shirley Ujest: Why is if more than likely that republicans are gun nuts and democrats not as much?
Confabulat: If you ever listen to Alex Jones (everyone should sometimes, not too often, just to remind us how crazy our fellow Americans are), the common psychological refrain is OMG YOU HAVE WOKEN ME UP TO THE TRUTH I AM GOING TO MAKE ALL MY FRIENDS AND FAMILY SEE THIS THANK YOU FOR OPENING UP MY EYES.This is 90% of the thinking of an Alex Jones listener. Then they go back to their engineering and banking jobs and look just like the rest of us while these nutty thoughts keep rattling around their brains. omg conspiracy
cman: Well this makes me glad to know that if a foreign enemy decimates the military, obliterates police departments, destroys Homeland Security, massacre the TSA, then we will have the NOAA with their military weapons ready to defend the homeland.
ourbigdumbmouth: There has been an awful lot of ammo orders recently. DHS, now this.I just wonder how this compares to previous years.Maybe they're just stockpiling like the tea party are.
