Wayne Winsley: Why Does Government Want to Disarm You While Arming Itself?

Below is a repost  with permission of a opinion piece by conservative blogger Wayne Winsley and former senatorial candidate against Rep. Rosa Delauro in 2012. All opinions expressed are soley that of the author Winsley and are reposted as a courtesy to our reader. Check out the original post and more about Winsley here:

In recent months we have seen proposed gun control legislation that seeks to do everything from banning certain types of weapons, limiting magazine sizes, to even taxing the bullets themselves.
Meanwhile, our government is literally buying bullets like they are going out of style.

The Department of Homeland Security is set to purchase a further 21.6 million rounds of ammunition to add to the 1.6 billion bullets it has already obtained over the course of the last 10 months alone
To put that in perspective, during the height of active battle operations in Iraq, US soldiers used 5.5 million rounds of ammunition a month. Extrapolating the figures, the DHS has purchased enough bullets over the last 10 months to wage a full scale war for almost 30 years.

This is not a conspiracy theory or even a pro-second amendment statement. I am simply posing a question that even the most ardent gun control supporter should be asking.
If your next door neighbor went to the local store and purchased 200 rounds of ammunition, many of you would be very concerned and want to know, “What on earth do they need that much firepower for, what are they planning to do?”

Well…your civilian government is stockpiling ammo at a faster rate than the military and at the same time seeking to restrict civilian access to firearms and even ammunition.
You might want to ask, Why, exactly, is the DHS stockpiling massive amounts of ammo?
