While it might be illegal for gun owners in some states to own 30-round magazines and submachine guns, that doesn’t mean the USDA can’t have them.
The USDA… yes, the same Department of Agriculture that inspects your meat and corn has solicited a small arsenal of machine guns and 30-round magazines.
Their May 7th request asks for weapons that are only available to the military and other law enforcement agencies.
Apparently to inspect meat the USDA needs:
“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.”
Perhaps this has something to do with the astronomic leap in meat prices over the past few weeks.
However, that’s doubtful.
More than likely the USDA’s solicitation has everything to do with the increased armament of more than 40 different federal agencies, all for purposes that remain entirely unknown.
These are signs of a growing police state, that’s all there is to it. It’s not hard to connect the dots when the government has been buying ammo a billion rounds at a time.
And it’s not that hard to see that when agencies who have no business owning weapons (agencies like the IRS, the Department of Education, NOAA, and USPS) are in the possession of fully automatic weapons… something foul is afoot.
One more piece of the puzzle that’s worth making mention of in light of these solicitations is the fact that with the recent passage of Obamacare, physicians are being forced to reveal whether or not their patients own a gun.
According to Obama’s newest unconstitutionally enacted law, healthcare professionals are now required to violate HIPAA privacy laws and submit medical data to the government. The illegally obtained data is then used as justification for gun confiscation by the federal government. Showing exactly the kind of man Obama is, and not having been able to pass these gun control laws through congress, Obama has unconstitutionally used executive actions to pass the laws he wasn’t able to through legal means.
So your doctor reports you’re mentally unstable and own a gun, but a food inspector can own an Uzi?
It’s clear that these gun purchases have nothing to do with helping USDA officials to do their jobs better. No agent who’s inspecting a chicken coop needs .40 cal ammunition lining a 30-round magazine, simple as that.
What is obvious is the government is taking progressive steps to limit constitutional freedoms.
You can see the signs everywhere: the BLM at Bundy Ranch, the USPS, the USDA. Pick a three- or four-letter federal agency and chances are they’ve got weapons, regardless of whether they are part of the military or not.
