DHS: Our domestic army of occupation

Vin Suprynowicz, assistant editorial editor at the Las Vegas Review-Journal, observes:
In little more than a decade since the Sept. 11, 2001, attack on the World Trade Center, the federal government has created a vast new domestic police force, massively armed and busily working to get us accustomed to what looks more and more like an army of domestic occupation.
Between big ammo buys at Homeland Security and rising gun sales among American civilians, Surprynowicz goes on to ask if we're not in some kind of domestic arms race. Encouraging to see a major daily newspaper exploring these themes.
