Levin: US Gov’t Buying Up Billions Of Rounds Of Ammo, Preparing For Societal Collapse (+audio)

Photo Credit: Daily CallerOn Friday’s night broadcast of his radio show, Mark Levin speculated that the federal government is stockpiling ammunition to ensure the rule of law in the event of a total societal and economic collapse.

On Feb. 8, Investor’s Business Daily editorial writer Andrew Malcolm penned a piece about the Department of Homeland Security amassing what he called “sufficient firepower to shoot every American about five times –including illegal immigrants,” or more than 1.6 billion bullets.

“I’m going to tell you what I think is going on,” Levin said. “I don’t think insurrection. Law enforcement and national security agencies — they play out multiple scenarios. They simulate multiple scenarios. I’ll tell you what I think they’re simulating: the collapse of our financial system, the collapse of our society and the potential for widespread violence, looting, killing in the streets, because that’s what happens when an economy collapses.”

“I’m not talking about a recession,” Levin continued. “I’m talking about a collapse when people are desperate, when they can’t food and clothing, when they have no way of going from place to place, when they can’t protective themselves. There aren’t enough police officers on the face of the Earth to adequately handle a situation like that.”

The conservative talker and author of “Ameritopia: The Unmaking of America” based his hypothesis on his time in the Reagan Justice Department.

    Well….. I’d STILL be willing to bet that the gun-owners of America have MORE ammo…. and we AIN’T turning anything in!

  • Once again l emphasise these progressive,Marxist, bastards are underestimateing a lot of American’s.We are not a people like the limp wristed euros that they are trying to turn this country into.American’s will stand and fight,I just hope there are enough of us left. I pray that the day doesn’t come when American’s have to fight American’s because of some Marxist agenda.We must be strong, and not give in to their unamerican ideas. We must remember the reason this country come into being.

  • Don’t forget the 7 million AR-15 select fire rifles on order…

    Frank – 7000… ordered in June. If gun companies would stop selling to the government or at least reduce their stock available.

    But on a lighter note, Levin is right. The US Government is buying ammo in amounts TEN times what has been used by those agencies in prior years and explaining they are increasing training, right. Read this quote:

    “An HSA spokeswoman stated that the agency plans to buy more than 1.6 billion rounds of ammunition “in the next four to five years” to be used for their law enforcement agents in training and on duty. The article further states that HSA uses as much as 15 million rounds every year for these purposes. They state that one of the contracts allows them to purchase up to 750 million rounds of ammo over the next five years. How many rounds would THAT be per year? 150 million rounds—which is TEN times more than they claim their training facilities use now. Why would they need TEN times as much ammunition going forward?”

    Got an answer? It adds up that things will get much worse than the Civil War. O wants us to look like, live like and act like a ‘3rd world nation’ so he can again live his father’s dreams. BTW, most third worlds are Muslim and that also fits… The fools who voted for O will suffer greatly as so many minorities do under 3rd world dictators and socialism. Women, no more freedoms; homosexuality, closet time and if you protest, bye-bye, illegal immigrants upon whose vote this reprobate got elected, you will be gone or put into a gulag like work force… on and on. Don’t you wish you had that much ammo??

    The people of concern are your neighbors and your local cops and Sheriffs. In collapse your neighbors will sell you out for a bowl of soup and cops are no better. They’ll want to be operating on the “paid” side while the cause of all of this dine in luxury. The “American People” have had nothing to do with any of this other than we’re to stupid to not see who the enemy really is and keep putting them right back in office. Don Young has sat his fat a$$ in the HR for 40 years! When is the last time you even heard from this shill. No one even knows he’s alive. C’mon Alaska, where is your pride, scrap the RINO’s and elect patriots!

  • CSN

    Government which is corrupt buying tons of Ammo….I’d say…it’s not about preparing for Crash, but preparing to extinguish those who would oppose them, just as all evil Communists have done. Look at history. Take away our guns, then take away our lives. China, Russia, Germany, Poland, Viet Nam, etc.

    You clowns are funny; the politics of fear is all you know. WhoTF is Mark Levin and who appointed him Nostradamus? Nostradumbass, maybe.
    Not a single person posting here can define Marxism nor understand a dictionary definition; you’re all just parrots without an original thought beteen the lot of ya.

    BTW; I’ll bet good money I’m a better shot than all of ya combined.

    Just running the numbers. With 120,000 armed federal agents spread across many different agencies, and figuring on this being a 5 year supply as the Government states….that works out to about 278 rounds of ammunition fired per month by each agent over those 5 years. That’s actually not excessive for range time to keep your shooting skills current. It would actually be less per agent if they continue to hire, which I expect they will. I know of a lot of private citizens that shoot more rounds than that per month just for fun.
