Just one more scare-mongering article. The other sources say that the ammo deal is "up to 1.6 billion" and over a period of 5 years. DHS has lots of agencies under its umbrella, so the ammo goes to many different agencies for training and carry use. As for the vehicles, DHS gets only 16 of them , not all 2717. But I do agree that it is fair to question how they will be used and why they need them at all.

"It's Time For A National Conversation"

It's not the talking we have a problem with, it's the listening portion of the conversation.

Let's get this out of the way early, it's just Alex Jones BS! But on Forbes website.

Half truths and conjecture based on rumors promulgated by the Alex Jones wanna be's. How many threads do we need on this?
