The Federal government has bought enough ammo to fight a 20 years war, and it's still buying more. They have even purchased 2,700 light tanks; why?
I keep asking myself, "am I getting paranoid, surely even the nut cases in power wouldn't attack the general citizenry". Then when I think about the chaos which could erupt in major cities and then spread outward if our economy did fail, if hyper-inflation rose to the point a month's worth of food stamps would only buy a small sack of groceries, then yes, it would be incumbent upon the Feds to restore order. AND OBAMA IS GOING TO PRODUCE JUST SUCH A SCENARIO.
But, they won't stop there because you see, the nut jobs currently in power are both paranoid and will see this as an opportunity to make America "a better place", a socialist utopia such as never been seen.
They believe Marx, Lenin, Stalin, Mao, and little ole Castro had the right idea, they just didn't know how to go about it properly. Remember the famous quote from Rahm Emanuel: "You never let a serious crisis go to waste. And what I mean by that it's an opportunity to do things you think you could not do before."
