Bullet-proof checkpoint booths. Riot gear. Hollow point bullets.

The Department of Homeland Security—a non-military agency—has requested all of these items, and more.

Is the United States about to enter a domestic war? Or is Obama just determined to keep dissenters in line?

In March of this year, the Department of Homeland Security purchased 450 million rounds of .40 caliber hollow point bullets, even though these types of bullets have been illegal in international warfare since 1899.

Now comes word that the National Weather Service has just broadcast a solicitation for thousands of rounds of the same hollow point bullet, with destinations in Maine, Massachusetts, Florida and New Jersey.

Of course, after the outcry began because citizens wondered what in the world the National Weather Service would need with thousands of rounds of ammo, the Washington Post ran a correction that the solicitation contained a “clerical error” and the bullets are in fact meant for the NOAA Fisheries of Law office.

But that clarification doesn’t set our minds at ease, because the federal government is busy purchasing checkpoint booths, anti-radiation pills, and large assault vehicles.

AND the Social Security Administration is ready to purchase 174,000 rounds of hollow point bullets that will be delivered to 41 locations across the country, including Los Angeles, Detroit, Houston, Dallas and Seattle.

Is the United States about to enter a situation that resembles Nazi Germany?

Since the news of the DHS bullet purchase broke in March, it has come to our attention that the agency has requested other items, as well. Infowars reports that Government Security News is listing riot gear requested by the DHS:

- 147 riot helmets – which must have an “adjustable tactical face shield with liquid seal” and be able to fit the “3M Full Face Respirator FR-M40B masks.”

- 152 sets of thigh and groin protection

- 147 hard shell shin guards – which should have an “optimized protective design for severe riot control or tactical situations.”

- 156 forearm protectors

- 147 pairs of tactical gloves – which should ensure that the “Kevlar on back of hands is flame/flash retardant as well as cut protective.”

The government is ramping up its ammo as the Obama administration works with the United Nations to limit YOUR rights to firearms.

And, the current administration is trying to take away our Second Amendment rights. So, as the government increases its firepower, it is seeking to lessen ours.

Whether you typically believe in conspiracy theories or not, you have to admit these are troubling developments, and we cannot imagine what the country will look like if Obama gets another four years and is able to impose his will upon this nation without the burden of a re-election campaign.

The current Attorney General, Eric Holder, and his comrades at the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco & Firearms sold arms to Mexico and then covered up their crime. Are these large purchases of ammunition meant for a similar sale, or worse, are they meant to silence dissenting voices here in America?

After all, the Obama administration has not been friendly to Tea Party groups or conservative donors that tend to disagree with his policies. Right-leaning groups have consistently been targeted for audits and organizations have been pressed for their donor lists.

The Department of Homeland Security—the very domestic agency that is purchasing an arsenal of ammunition—released a report warning of radical groups like people who are Christian, pro-life, against big government, and men and women who are returning military veterans.

Americans, particularly conservatives, should be very worried about our First and Fourth Amendment rights.

We already get humiliated at the airport simply because we want to get on a plane. The second you enter the airport you give up your rights and are subject to groping, assault and intimidation by TSA “officials.”

Will this be typical behavior at a supermarket, a train station, a sporting event, or even as you enter your neighborhood?

Obama seems to have no love for our Constitution, which is our only defense against his tyranny.

That is why we must expose the purchases the DHS is making and lean on Congress to stop this military-like behavior by a domestic agency. Our Constitution and our Bill of Rights must be defended against all enemies.
