Barack Obama's own word July 2, 2008 "We cannot continue to rely only on our military in order to achieve the national security objectives we've set. We've got to have a civilian national security force that's just as powerful, just as strong, just as well-funded." So, I guess none of us should be too surprised when when the Dept. of Agriculture places an order for 40 cal. Submachine.
According to the solicitation, the Dept. of Agriculture wants the guns to have an "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. https://www.fbo.gov/index?s=opportunity&mode=form&id=9fc3a01217d03b0354e1e18b69aa7bad&tab=core&_cview=0 They also want the submachine guns to have a "sling," be "lightweight," and have an "oversized trigger guard for gloved operation."
If the people of this country standby and allow these types of 'security forces" to be built, they will be facing the barrel of a gun in the near future. This is not just an isolated case, even our police departments are acquiring armored vehicles, drones and many have over used swat teams!
We need to write, call and contact all our government officials and get them engaged in stopping this build-up of force.
Your Freedom Wasn't & Still Isn't Free!
If everyone knew all there is to know, they would not do half the things they do, including myself, therefore I must foregive them, including myself.
