Every once in a while I'll have to remind someone to "come back from the edge" of conspiracy theories, but occasionally all the facts just seem to point towards a malicious conspiracy.
Anyone remember back in 2008 that Senator Obama mentioned the need for a "National Civilian Security Force" that was just as well funded and armed as the military? http://www.wnd.com/2008/07/69601/
Guess that explains all the hollowpoint ammunition being bought up by the Social Security administration. http://dailycaller.com/2012/08/17/who-does-the-government-intend-to-shoot
Wonder where the bullet proof checkpoint booths fit in all of this? http://news.thomasnet.com/companystory/Shelters-Direct-Builds-Bullet-Resistant-Booths-for-Homeland-Security-612684
Maybe all the bullets and bullet proof shelters are to be used in conjunction with the new doctrine on Civil Unrest? http://info.publicintelligence.net/USAMPS-CivilDisturbanceOps.pdf
The General Officer who as a Two Star in charge of Alaska forbade troops from carrying firearms in USARAK, the same GO who in charge of I Corps and Joint Base Lewis McChord wrote a policy letter requiring all personnel assigned to JBLM with weapons stored within 100 miles of JBLM to register those weapons on post. be put in charge of NORTHCOM? https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Northcom I don't know about very many GOs in the Army, but the current NORTHCOM commander is no friend to gun owners.
I'm not a fan of conspiracy theories, but all these data points are making me feel...itchy and uncomfortable.
