The editorial staff at Investors Business Daily have noticed the Department of Homeland Security’s exceedingly large ammunition purchases as well as their solicitation for 7,000 select-fire personal defense weapons. It prompts them to ask this question.
To what purpose is a civilian agency arming itself to the teeth at the
same time the administration has been making war on the Second Amendment
and pushing for stricter gun control measures such as universal
background checks, while others, such as New York Gov. Andrew Cuomo,
hint at outright confiscation?
It is an interesting question and one that most in the mainstream media will continue to ignore.
