A fellow named Steve Knepp came across some agents of the Department of Homeland Security in Philadeplhia that claimed that the 2 billion bullets ordered by his agency was “quite possibly a clerical error.”
The agent told Mr. Knepp that it was absurd that people think that DHS would even have enough money to buy that many bullets all at once. The information that Mr. Knepp had seen, such as the work orders from the DHS that millions have seen, are just a mistake.
“I do find it to be absurd. It’s grotesquely inaccurate. It’s offensive to me,” the DHS agent told Knepp.
“But the math speaks for itself,” Knepp is heard saying on the tape. “Two billion rounds is enough for like 14 Iraq wars,” he, says.
“Clerical errors,” the DHS agent replied.
“With budget sequestration? Trust me we’re not going to spend that kind of money on ammunition,” the agent said.
There are other agencies doing dodgy stuff, too. For instance, the ATF is creating a new program to spy on anyone that owns a gun.
Even leftist comedians like Stephen Colbert think that Obama is a “tyrannical despot who ignores all the rules.”
The agent did go on to say that he was a supporter of the Second Amendment himself and, while he believed in some restrictions, he was all for the U.S. Constitution.
So, do you feel safer with DHS agents riding our mass transit?
