I would love to hear the official reason for this. I'm sure it would be BS. Our government is not accountable to us anymore. For the 1st time in my life I'm starting to agree with the idea that we need more strict gun control. And start restricting government's easy access to firearms.

A politician thinks of the next election; a statesman of the next generation. A politician looks for the success of his party; a statesman for that of the country. The statesman wished to steer, while the politician was satisfied to drift.

One might also question why they need body armor:

A May 7th solicitation by the U.S. Department of Agriculture seeks "the commercial acquisition of ballistic vests, compliant with NIJ 0101.06 for Level IIIA Ballistic Resistance of body armor."
According to the solicitation, "The U.S. Department of Agriculture, Office of Inspector General," seeks "Body Armor [that] is gender specific, lightweight, [having] trauma plate/pad (hard or soft), [and] concealable carrier." The order includes "tactical vest, undergarment (white), identification patches, accessories (6 pouches), body armor carry bag, and professional measurements."
"All responsible and/or interested sources may submit their company name, point of contact, and telephone number." The solicitation says those sources received in a "timely" manner "shall be considered by the agency for contact."

Call me "tinfoil hat crazy", but just in the last year or so we saw how various government agencies buying insanely huge amounts of ammunition virtually dried up the supply for the civilian market, and used your tax dollars to do it to boot. Why not try drying up the civillian firearms market using the same tactics?

No need to try to delete the second amendment, and no need to try and stack the supreme court with activist judges to limit American's right to bear arms, when you can defacto make it impossible to buy either firearms or ammunition by drying up the market. Using taxpayer-paid-for purchases is just a bonus.

Y'all keep forgetting Obama's promise to create a large civilian police force.

Reason magazine’s Matt Welch recounts the history: “Because of the Homeland Security Act of 2002, which amended the IG Act to grant inspectors ‘full law enforcement authority to carry firearms, make arrests and execute search warrants.’ The law was sponsored by then-House Majority Leader **** Armey (R-Texas), passed with a heavily Republican majority (207-10 in favor, versus 88-110 among Democrats), passed overwhelmingly in the Senate (90-9, with no Republicans voting against), and then signed into law by President George W. Bush.” It would seem to be time to revisit that law.

That act most definitely needs to be removed as of yesterday. The arming of idiots with weapons when they are not sworn LEO is beyond stupid. Half of LEO shouldn't be allowed to carry a gun. Now they want to give them to field inspectors?

That's a sign that Federal government needs to be reigned in.

One thing leads to another

It's why I'm confused by those hating Bush but loving Obama. Obama is nothing more than Bush on steroids, literally taking the ball and running with it.
