A U.S. Congressman was asked about the Department of Homeland Security’s purchase of 1.6 billion rounds of ammunition that the agency will stockpile over the near future, as confirmed by the Associated Press.
According to the video description posted by WeAreChange:
“At CPAC, Luke Rudkowski interviewed Congressman Timothy Huelscamp on his decision to vote against the NDAA which was due to the unconstitutionality of the indefinite detention provision. They also discussed Obama’s Disposition Matrix and the large ammunition purchases made by the DHS.”
Militarization of domestic police forces is not permissible under U.S. law; and specifically posse comitatus (mentioned during Rand Paul’s filibuster). DHS has some explaining to do and there will be plenty of people analyzing if its stockpiling of weapons and ammunition passes muster.
