This last Friday night's broadcast on his radio show, Mark Levin openly speculated that the federal government is stockpiling ammunition to ensure the rule of law in the event of a total societal and economic collapse. This may have been in response to the IBD artcle posted on 8 Feb. asking about the need for such a large amount of ammunition. The IBD editorial laid out some serious numbers in a way few would find easy to ignore. While concern over the sheer mass of ammo (1.6 billion rounds) has echoed around the internet for some time, I found it interesting that Levin, a man with quite the bully pulpit, would openly speculate on total societal collapse. I take it that his spin is from what is ongoing now in Spain and Greece - what would it be like here in the US, in a financial collapse? Not counting the so-called 'inner city / urban areas' which are hellholes already. In other words, what would happen in Peoria? Grand Rapids, or Wichita? It's not the 1930s anymore, with 90+% of the population living on the farm. And with the FBI finally admitting that there are now more active gang members in the US than the Army has combat troops - or just troops for that matter.... Your thoughts? Is Levin over-reacting? I think his is, a bit anyway.
