Frequent commenter ”Harry” sent me the following information.
Gun ports? Definitely thought provoking.
In addition to the millions of rounds of .40 ammo, DHS has purchased 2,500 “utility vehicles” (see below). I like the addition of the word “rescue” to their identification panel – makes it look nice and safe and peaceful. That info is right below the 1-inch thick armor panels which for some strange reason the US Army couldn’t afford to put on my son’s vehicle while he toured the sandbox. Picture 2 clearly shows the gunner’s cupola (nothing mounted, but that only takes 10 minutes). I wonder why a “rescue” vehicle needs a weapon’s mount capable of handling heavy machine guns, Gatling guns, automatic grenade launchers, and other toys? “I’m from the government and I’m here to help” – 9 words to make one shudder.
