A quick note: I deleted the post,
DHS buys 7000 "Personal Defense Weapons"
Because the source URL is PrisonPlanet. That website is just plain nuts. It's an Alex Jones site, and we at Rantburg aren't going to cite or forward anything that comes from him.
Part of what helps Rantburg punch above its weight (and we do) is that our posts are coming from sources that can be verified. Even if it is Dawn News (the Lebanese, Bangladeshi, or Pakistani Dawns) the news contained in the posts can be tracked down. The opinion pieces that are posted here are respectable, clear-thinking, and thought provoking.
We don't do paranoia. That means no black helicopter citations.
Do not post anything from Alex Jones; it will be deleted. Thx.
