The FBI has been sending flyers to various types of businesses to be on the lookout for suspicious activity that might be terrorist.
Under the heading of “You Can’t Make This Stuff Up”, we have a flyer that is going out to military surplus stores. For example, you might be a terrorist if you are making bulk purchases of the following items:
- Weatherproofed ammunition or match containers
- Meals Ready to Eat
- Night Vision Devices, night flashlights, gas masks
- High capacity magazines
- Bi-pods or tri-pods for rifles
Recently, there were reports of the Feds going to Mormon canneries and demanding lists of customers who purchased bulk food items. However, the naysayers came out and said it wasn’t true. Well, there can be no longer be any doubt about this.
Here is the actual flyer for you to look at.
Are you aware that during the past year, there have been multiple confirmed reports of FEMA purchasing a billion dollars worth of emergency food, including freeze dried food, dehydrated food and yes, MREs?
Please don’t let this discourage you from purchasing an emergency food supply. On their preparedness websites, both Homeland Security and FEMA recommend that people have emergency food on hand in case of a disaster. We all know that in a major catastrophe, the government won’t be able to help everyone. That fact was made clear after Hurricane Katrina. By having emergency food on hand, people are just following FEMA’s and Homeland Security’s advice.
My problem is that they are not consistent in their position. The Feds should be consistent across all their websites. It’s confusing.
