USDA goes paramilitary

NaturalNews) The U.S. Department of Agriculture is joining the militarization trend that's spreading like wildfire across federal agencies. Both the EPA and IRS currently have armed federal agents, and recent events involving the BLM in Nevada showed that even the Bureau of Land Management possesses a small army of long-range snipers and heavily armed paramilitary operators.

Now the U.S. Department of Agriculture is joining the militarization bandwagon, publishing a solicitation (# USDAOIGWEA-5-7-14) requesting "submachine guns, .40 Cal. S&W" with "Tritium night sights for front and rear, rails for attachment of flashlight (front under fore grip) and scope (top rear), stock-collapsible or folding, magazine - 30 rd."

In other words, the USDA is now purchasing precisely the weapons that Obama famously said belong "in the hands of soldiers" and not "on the streets of America." Yet Obama's administration is, in fact, putting these types of weapons on the streets of America as long as they are in the hands of federal agents who increasingly patrol those streets.

"These weapons are used for night-time battle"

Natural News attempted to reach out to Linda Josey, Chief of the Procurement Management Branch of the USDA to ask why the USDA needs submachine guns with 30-round magazines and tritium night sights. She did not answer the phone, however, and her voice mail was full.

So we next reached out to Jeremy Alcede, founder and CEO of Tactical Firearms, a Katy, Texas firearms retailer and large indoor training facility that hosts training sessions for both private civilians and local law enforcement. "That class of weapon is used for night-time battle," Alcede told Natural News.

"Honestly I think the federal government is using different agencies to stockpile these weapons," Alcede continued. "I can't imagine why the USDA would need submachine guns to enforce agricultural regulations. Are they planning for a mad cow disease rampage of some kind? But then again, why does DHS need hundreds of millions of rounds of ammo? They've stockpiled enough ammo right now to have one bullet for every American."

It's true, believe it or not. Although the discovery of the massive, multi-billion-round ammo purchases by the federal government were initially derided as "paranoid conspiracy theories" by the lie-slinging mainstream media, it turns out these purchases are completely true and irrefutably documented. The federal government really is stockpiling over a billion rounds of ammunition for some yet-unknown purpose.

Tactical Firearms recently unleashed a wave of controversy across the 'net after sporting a store sign message that reads, "I like my guns like Obama likes his voters - undocumented." This sign has been widely shared across the 'net by a growing number of Americans who are increasingly frustrated by the Obama Administration's policies on a wide range of topics, including debt spending, gun control and immigration. Even many former supporters of Obama are now extremely worried to learn that Obama's government is clearly in favor of a massive build-up of guns as long as they are in the hands of federal agencies.
