    So much damage was done to the substation that it was closed down for a month. Yup, domestic terrorist on the rise. It seems that 19 electric transformers were shot up and a sub station closed for repairs for over a month. Now think if chemical plants vulnerability and Nuclear facilities under attack by Hooligans.
    Read and become very, very afraid.

    Wow, I can't believe this was never featured in main stream media. Happened on april 16th, 2013. With the unfortunate event happening on December 2012, this story would have been featured by Piers Morgan for months on end.

    The mainstream media will not focus on reality. They prefer to print/broadcast propaganda and push their viewpoint. They'll only publish truth if it fits their narrative and furthers their agenda.

    All the media wants to report about are kids creating gun-shaped PopTarts and how Phillip Seymour Hoffman was some kind of miracle inspiration prior to killing himself with heroin.

    There's no such thing as reality, only perception.....

    U.S. Postal Service Announces Giant Ammo Purchase

    Post Office joins other federal agencies stockpiling over two billion rounds of ammo


    February 5, 2014

    The U.S. Postal Service is currently seeking companies that can provide “assorted small arms ammunition” in the near future.

    The U.S. Postal Service joins the long list of non-military federal agencies purchasing large amounts of ammunition.
    The U.S. Postal Service joins the long list of non-military federal agencies purchasing large amounts of ammunition.

    On Jan. 31, the USPS Supplies and Services Purchasing Office posted a notice on the Federal Business Opportunities website asking contractors to register with USPS as potential ammunition suppliers for a variety of cartridges.

    “The United States Postal Service intends to solicit proposals for assorted small arms ammunition,” the notice reads, which also mentioned a deadline of Feb. 10.

    The Post Office published the notice just two days after Sen. Rand Paul (R-Ky.) announced his proposal to remove a federal gun ban that prevents lawful concealed carry holders from carrying handguns inside post offices across the country.

    Ironically the Postal Service isn’t the first non-law enforcement agency seeking firearms and ammunition.

    Since 2001, the U.S. Dept. of Education has been building a massive arsenal through purchases orchestrated by the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco and Firearms.

    The Education Dept. has spent over $80,000 so far on Glock pistols and over $17,000 on Remington shotguns.

    Back in July, the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration also purchased 72,000 rounds of .40 Smith & Wesson, following a 2012 purchase for 46,000 rounds of .40 S&W jacketed hollow point by the National Weather Service.

    NOAA spokesperson Scott Smullen responded to concerns over the weather service purchase by stating that it was meant for the NOAA Fisheries Office of Law Enforcement for its bi-annual “target qualifications and training.”

    That seems excessive considering that JHP ammunition is typically several times more expensive than practice rounds, which can usually be found in equivalent power loadings and thus offer similar recoil characteristics as duty rounds.

    Including mass purchases by the Dept. of Homeland Security, non-military federal agencies combined have purchased an estimated amount of over two billion rounds of ammunition in the past two years.

    Additionally, the U.S. Army bought almost 600,000 Soviet AK-47 magazines last fall, enough to hold nearly 18,000,000 rounds of 7.62x39mm ammo which is not standard-issue for either the U.S. military or even NATO.

    It would take a Lockheed Martin C-5 Galaxy, one of the largest cargo aircraft in the world, two trips to haul that many magazines.

    A month prior, the army purchased nearly 3,000,000 rounds of 7.62x39mm ammo, a huge amount but still only 1/6th of what the magazines purchased can hold in total.

    The Feds have also spent millions on riot control measures in addition to the ammo acquisitions.

    Earlier this month, Homeland Security spent over $58 million on hiring security details for just two Social Security offices in Maryland.

    DHS also spent $80 million on armed guards to protect government buildings in New York and sought even more guards for federal facilities in Wisconsin and Minnesota.

    While the government gears up for civil unrest and stockpiles ammo without limit, private gun owners on the other hand are finding ammunition shelves empty at gun stores across America, including shortages of once-common cartridges such as .22 Long Rifle.

    Yeah! "He was a great husband and dad!" Sure, only the best are found in their homes, (not the family home), dead, with a needle sticking out of their veins!

    I think it was good that it wasn't on main stream media, all that does is breed copycats .

    Do the math on the above post (Dept of Education) $80,000 on Glocks, what's a Glock cost? Same for the $17,000 on Shotguns

    What most LE agencies do is shoot up old ammo for training (even JHP) and replenish their stocks with new. Yea, expensive and all that, but how long do you carry around the same set of rounds? I shoot off all my carry rounds a few times a year right after I buy more.

    The contracts issues are fixed price indefinite delivery contracts... that is they are locking in a price, there is no real commitment to buy any quantity of ammo. Realistically this is what everyone on this board would have done 2 years ago with .22LR ammo if they could have, guaranteed price, guaranteed delivery. And it's a 5 year contract, they were not about to take delivery of 2bn rounds of ammo at any point before the end of the 5 year contract.

    Yes, shelves are bare because people are buying it all. Again, if you had a firm fixed-price indefinite delivery contract for ammo would you be happy? This means for at any point during the contract period, you can call up the vendor and say "yes, I would like 2 bricks of .22LR for $10 each" and you could do that every week for 5 years or until you bought 2bn rounds.

    All of these infowars articles show at best a piss poor understanding of how federal contracting works, and at worst a willful ignorance and decision to mislead the readers.

    And maybe it is good thing that most people don’t know about this. The truth is that we are a nation that is absolutely teeming with “soft targets”, and if people realized how vulnerable we truly are they might start freaking out.

    That is exactly why people need to hear about this..

    Could have been a test by "Red Cell" for test and training also.

    Thing is, people do dumb 5#!7 all the time, what's worse someone breaking into a substation to steal all the copper, or someone shooting up the substation? Either way, one of the telling things here is the cops didn't show up in time to catch the perpetrators, and since they had time to fire "several hundred rounds" it seems pretty clear there was zero impetus to stop them. Even then, it seems like they had a pretty craptactular hit percentage. To call this a "sniper attack" is laughable.

    Oh by the way, I heard they caught the "suspect" it was this guy:
