Why is the Postal Service now stockpiling ammo?

In 2012, the U.S. Department of Homeland Security (DHS) began purchasing large stockpiles and ammunition, weapons and even Mine Resistant Protected vehicles (otherwise known as 'urban tanks'), all with no explanation.

In fact, that agency's total ammunition purchases have reached a total of about 2 billion rounds over the last two years.

Perhaps, the most troubling DHS purchase came in April 2012, when the agency acquired $143,000 worth of sub-machine guns from Heckler & Koch.

However, these acquisitions are no longer limited to DHS...

In July, the National Oceanic & Atmospheric Administration posted a purchase order for an astounding 72,000 rounds of ammunition. That was is in addition to the 46,000 rounds of hollow point bullets the agency had already recently purchased.

Now, it appears that the feds are going shopping again...

On Jan. 31, the United States Postal Service posted a rather disturbing notice on the federal government's General Services Administrations website.

The notice stated:

The United States Postal Service intends to solicit proposals for assorted small arms ammunition."

Of course, the Postal Service is not a law enforcement agency, and while it does employ postal inspectors who do carry firearms, it is difficult to understand how an agency that continuously operates at a loss and recently even considered ending Saturday deliveries, can suddenly find the funds to purchase a large amount of ammo.

It would seem, that the Obama administration is the biggest 'doomsday prepper' of all time.
