Ok, now I am really curious as to what is going on in this country. Why does the Department of Agriculture need weapons? WHY?


"ambidextrous safety, semiautomatic or 2 round [bursts] trigger group, Tritium night sights front and rear, rails for attachment of flashlight (front under fore group) and scope (top rear), stock collapsible or folding," and a "30 rd. capacity" magazine.
They also want the submachine guns to have a "sling," be "lightweight," and have an "oversized trigger guard for gloved operation."


For gloved operations...30 round capacity...40 cal...

The IRS needs shotguns and AR's for stand off capabilities? The SSA purchased weapons and hollow point ammo...Large ammo purchases...no ammo for citizens...USPS announced a huge purchase of ammo early in the year. DHS bought enough ammo to last the next 20 years.

They call the prepper who stockpiles a terror threat now.

10...9....8...7....6...5...4...3....we are getting so much closer....the USDA folks????

Is it a case where Ag needs weapons? Maybe
Is it a case where some dickhead congressman promised an arms company a fat contract and Ag had room in their budget to fill it? Most likely

I think it's much more sinister than that.

Something wicked this way comes....

The following is my opinion as a member participating in this discussion.

In case one of those rogue mutated Monsanto soybeans jumps a fence.

Or maybe when the SNAP benefits dry up? Land grabs? Distribution of food?

The MIC needs its money. It's to the point of every agency's budget has to be used to keep the money flowing. The weapons will probably be in boxes in a warehouse for a couple of years until someone steals them or they are sent to Africa or Mexico.

That actually makes perfect sense to me, now that Ive heard it.

The corruption in America circa 2014 is through the roof. Undoubtedly "we" compare easily with any of the worstly demonized nations on the planet, and in some cases, are probably actually worse. Only thing is, The West is good at casting illusions, at least upon its own citizenry, so it seems not as bad as it is.

Its about money in the end. Those guns will sit in a warehouse somewhere, paid for by you and me, and a corrupt politician will get a load of under the table cash.

Yet our Veterans get put on a fake appointment list.

Can anyone really explain any of these purchases?

The Ag Dept. Might as well buy a bunch of lipstick to put on all the pigs.

Don't try to use logic. It's about the rich getting richer. The fun part is US citizens being so worried about Al Cia boogie men coming here to get them that they let the MIC run wild. And the same people think the country will end if a person makes $10/hr instead of 7.25/hr. Unbelievable....

I first thought they were referring to simple semi-autos as "submachine" guns until I saw this: "semi-automatic or 2 shot burts trigger group". Its not full auto but its not a simple semi-auto either.


Place of Performance:
USDA, Office of Inspector General - Investigations
1400 Independence Avenue, SW Washington, District of Columbia 20250
United States

Citizens in Washington DC arent even allowed to have antique ammo but the government can have near full auto weapons...

Scary times for sure.

The patriot act is responsible for government departments arming there own police and swat forces. So you can thank GWB for this situation and you can blame Obama and congress for the continuing programs. Seems the government is preparing for war, who do you think the war will be against?

Monsanto Killer Tomatoes. They're organizing.



Seriously, though, we all know why. There is not mystery any more with this tyrannical regime. But do you really think a meat inspector is going to take up arms against his pissed off neighbors?

It seems most likely that munitions of various types are being bought by each separate Gov. entity and warehoused.

No one would ask about the guns or explosives inside those areas of Government because they are of course never issued any normally anyway. Some other organization then goes and collects all the bought equipment and it is taken...where?

Probably so they can silence anybody who sees them making their super secret crop circles!

or maybe because of the dangerous farm animals that could suddenly attack them

or what if just by some chance they were brought for the dept of agriculture in order to immediately give them to another government agency which would otherwise be considered to be stock piling weapons if they brought them in directly?

Seems like you got to the same conclusion just before me

WTF? Are those rogue farmers planning an uprising or something?
You know they are all terrorists and the Dept of AG has to be prepared.
Good grief. This has to come to a stop somewhere. Militarizing every government agency is just ridiculous.

Looks like they are making this a "them vs us" thing. This is all leading somewhere bad and in a hurry.
