Take this for what it's worth .... had an anonymous source pass this along.

Quote:

I'm out at FT [base name withheld], just got back from my last tour, ETSing and getting out before it's too late. So out scout platoon, a vital part of any infantry company, goes out to the range often. We try to go today so some of the newer joes can learn some [censored]. We get told there is not enough ammunition, not even for the M9. That's [censored] 9mm. No way, no how we're out. And we're cut dry on 7.62 and 5.56. Supposedly. There isn't enough for training. We get told to purchase our own ammunition.
I'm anonymous in all this but someone needs to know. I get told by some buddies of mine, they were literally warned to not speak out in ant way shape or form against the current establishment and the president, our "commander in chief". So I saw some things about others being told that.
Its happening everywhere according to a lot of people I've know within the Army. And everyone is told that there are consequences. The training schedule for our brigade. Is literally empty. I've never seen it like that.
We literally, and were told this, have no funding. Yet TSA can afford new uniforms, HS (Obamas Gestapo) can afford 2000 or so MRAPS, and wish. They get rounds, hollow point at that from what I've been hearing. Cheyenne Mountain has been going crazy out here, full blackout some nights with convoys heading in with connexes then heading out empty. Its been rare, but we've never seen that.
Something is happening. We're doing 100% accountability f all weapons and equipment at [base name withheld]. And sending the reports on up. We've never done that. Only times our entire brigade does it at once is right before mobilization and deployment. And once after. We already did. Green on everything.
Doing it again and its mandatory reports to be sent in to higher here at [base name withheld]. Turning in vital equipment from what others are saying. Something's going on. A lot of us feel like they're practically disarming us. Like they're dismantling our military. I don't know if that's important or old news. But we're wondering. It seems like shits about to go down.

They literally said, "we can't give you rounds for training. Buy them yourselves."
That's the word.


Anyone else head anything even remotely like this from military friends?

Same Venue: I spoke w/one of my hunting and shooting buddys of over 50 yrs..who has shot more different rifle and pistol targets
and competitions than I could ever even imagine. He had a visit from two of his friends who are Senior Supv. in the Fed in two different agencys..they told him that " a plan is in place and they have a listing of every Gunowner w/10 or more weapons and are setup to confiscate and arrest w/out warrant and hold them without any contact or notice to anyone." From anyone else I'd say this is a rumor or fear mongering, but we have know each other a lifetime..I don't think Homeland Security is buying all that ammo just for training...They know the American Military will not go after it's own citizens...DD

I'm not worried. If anything major goes down, we have the internet and cell phones to get the word out. They would have to do something major, like an executive order, to take control of that.



I forgot, they already did.


I don't have many guns, but I have a ton of recurve bows and about 100 arrows.

Yeah... and they'd have to pass laws to detain American citizens indefinitely, for nothing more than suspicion... Oh wait, they already did THAT, too.

5 years ago, people were calling me a conspiracy theorist and asking where my tinfoil hat was. Now I can't turn around without hearing others talking about this. In a way, it's good so many are aware but in most ways, it's just plain sad what we've come to. We are Germany - just moments before the Nazi regime.

They are disarming the US military because our military WOULD go after DHS (and then tyrannists) - and they know this, too!!!

I have been watching a series of videos on youtube about WWII and I was thinking what would I do if my governement worked their way into everything and then all of the sudden had an army everywhere and just took over.

It is scary because we are slowly following in Hitlers steps. It is just baby steps. The frog doesn't know the water is getting hot and then it is too late.

Well I don't know about the letter but I know Feinstein is at it again attacking Vets. I know you lefties will not like the site but there is a CSPAN link within so you can watch her say it.

Why don't you two tell us how the Democrats support the Constitution especially the 2nd Ammendment.
We could all use a good laugh these days.

Funny how repeating Democrat statements makes the person qouting the nut......

I guess the DEMOCRAT Florida Congresswoman who wants anyone buying ammo to take a Anger Management class is A OK with you guys? At least she respects you fella's.

You know who else would like you fella's? The Chicago Police Chief, he's a Democrat too! He said the 2nd Ammendment is a Danger to the Public's Safety. Maybe you boys can go bowling ya'll have alot in common!

This sounds like a junior enlisted Army dude that has never served in a peace time military. There are going to be “growing pains” and funding will be cut (as it should). There were many a time when we had to ride our Cadillac’s instead of choppers back in the day. They will have to learn to do more with less, no way around it I’m afraid.

No way....DHS needs billions of rounds of ammo and Mine resisitant armored vehicles because they.....Well their job is too.....What does DHS do again?

We already have the FBI, CIA, NSA, TSA, DEA, Border Patrol, State Police, Local Law, Sherrifs Dept. Seriously what do they do excactly?

Forgot the ATF, US Marshall, and Secret Service. Then there is also the Office of Inspector General under the Dept of Education that is armed. I'm sure there are others.

Better do it quick aeb, Reynolds American stock price is up 26 cents today to close @ $43.25 a share. Maybe someone knows something we don't.

Hey Earth Kid. What does DHS do and why do they need 3000 Mine Resistant vehicles "in the worst economic times since the great depression"?

"We need a Civillian Security force that is just as well armed, just as well funded as our military". BHO.

Question? For what?

To just chime in and insinuate that everyone is crazy without ever making any point or counter point is just.....sad.

I wonder why people are worried about you Democrats. With people like Louis Farakhan, Communist Bill Ayers, Gun Grabbers like Feinstein and Waters, Rev. U.S. of KKK A. Jerimiah Wright, Endorsements from Communist Party USA Democrat Socialist of America, The New Black Panthers, The Occupy Movement........ Who could possibly be against the Democrat Party, right? Especially a bunch of gun owning Texans.
