Tanks a lot

For the last two years, Presbo has submitted a budget for spending for the Department of Defense that included purchases of a significant amount of combat equipment, including armored vehicles, helicopters and artillery, under the  National Defense Authorization Act (NDAA) for  “homeland defense missions, domestic emergency responses, and providing military support to civil authorities.” This has included combat vehicles, tanks, helicopters, artillery, mortar systems, missiles, small arms and communications equipment.  Presbo stated that this is “necessary for use by the active and reserve components of the Armed Forces for homeland defense missions, domestic emergency responses, and providing military support to civil authorities”.

When Brian Terry was killed by the automatic weapons that people working under the direction of Eric Holder put in the hands of Mexican drug cartels, Presbo was on TV harping about how our country was not controlling our guns and we need more controls.

I’m just wondering what kind of homeland defense missions require a tank?  Or mortars?.  Or missiles?  I happen to believe that Presbo was exactly right.  Our country DOES need more controls.  But not on the civilian population.

The out of control entity here is the DC entity that appears to be gearing up to protect itself from…..us.  Just what does DHS need with 420 million rounds of .40 cal hollow points? They’re illegal on the battlefield under the Geneva Convention and they are not a training round.

They are not leaders.  They are elected representatives.   And they are not doing either.

    Another good post, Drrik. It’s the kind of post that makes me feel like I should be doing something with this new information, but what? Nothing is more frustrating than having to sit by and watch the Left in action, but it still beats being ignorant.
