When it comes to gun control, this story may stun you. It was in April when the NY Times published an article regarding the colossal number of Facebook pages selling U.S. military equipment ranging from machine guns and ammunition to pistols and rifles. Say what?! These weapons were taken from an allotment given to the Iraqis and Afghans over the years in order to help U.S. forces in the field.
Yet, no one even knows the exact number of donated weapons! What’s worse is the Department of Defense admitted that they only have records for half of the 1.45 million weapons delivered. That could pretty much arm a militia. It begs the question of how many of these weapons ended up in the hands of terrorists and used to kill Americans and their allies. It seems we’ll never know!
As we can see and have seen, big government is out of control. The bigger it gets, the larger the mistakes. Who are we fighting? Terrorists using our weapons? I can’t take this nonsense any longer. Can you?
