Executive Order -- National Defense Resources Preparedness Act. This is freakin' scary. Just signed on Friday the 16th, and some are saying that a large if not world war may be looming, and the govt. knows that it currently doesn't have all the domestic resources and infrastructure to wage a sustained world war.

An older story came to my attn via moxnews fb post. The thing that jumped out at me was the Army's explanation that troops on U.S. soil could only be allowed their weapons on approval by Secty of Defense for defensive use & heavy weapons are incl in their arsenal.
