It has come to my attention that the federal government has been removing weapons and communications gear from National Guard armories throughout the country.
In fact, all "crew serviceable weapons systems" are being removed.
One member of the national guard inquired as to why the weapons were being taken away and he was told "There's a party being planned and you're not invited."
This seems quite ominous to me. Why would our federal government be disarming state governments? The "states" are the only other sovereign entities in this nation. The states created the federal government and, collectively, they can do away with it ---- unless the feds take away that ability.
If the folks in the federal government think they can, by force, reorganize the power structure of this nation, they are in for a rude awakening.

can we get a better idea of scale? how many weapons? how long they've been doing this? is this related to a possible government takeover?

I'll look into it and do a lil research for you guys...
oh BTW, crew serviced weapons are heavy guns that require 2 people to operate... M-60, M-249, MK-19, M-2 etc etc
pretty any heavy machine gun or light machine gun you can imagine is a crew serviced weapon.
I'll make some calls and post back here in a few
