Preparing FEMA for “Mass Fatality” Event

Rep. Laura Richardson (D-Ca.), recently introduced House Resolution 6566, also known as the Mass Fatality Planning and Religious Considerations Act. If passed, the bill would amend the Homeland Security Act of 2002 to mandate that FEMA immediately begin conducting "mass fatality planning" in preparation for a major event or series of events that may kill off untold numbers of American people.
H.R. 6566 provisions that the Administrator of FEMA provide "guidance and coordination" for dealing with a mass casualty event arising from a natural disaster, terrorist act, or "other man-made disaster." The bill also ominously sets up the FEMA Administrator as a type of emergency dictator with the power to control how local communities, private businesses, nonprofit organizations, religious organizations, and even individuals prepare for and respond to a mass fatality event.
"Funeral homes, cemeteries, and mortuaries could be overwhelmed should mass fatalities arise from a natural disaster, act of terrorism, or other man-made disaster," says the legislation, which also specifies the manner in which people with certain religious affiliations should be buried following their deaths.
Recently, the U.S. government issued purchase orders for a total of 1.4 billion rounds of handgun ammunition for such agencies as the Department of Education, National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration and the Social Security Administration, to name a few. Government apologists claim the 1.4 billion rounds of ammunition is simply for "target practice" but most of the ammo is hollow-point, which is designed for maximum destruction when fired at a human.
