Are You Worried About Federal Agencies Arming?

FDA armedI think it is getting a little ridicules that every federal agency is arming up. Something is going on. I really believe that it is time to wake up the average person. Who is the average person? Look around you… pretty much everyone. The average person is the person who takes no notice in what is going on around them on a daily basis. The average person is the person who is so busy in their day to day life they fail to see the danger that is beginning to rear it’s head to their liberties and freedoms. What am I talking about? Well I ask you, what does the FDA, the IRS, the department of Social Security and countless other federal agencies need to buy firearms, ammo, and body armor for? Their purpose is to serve the American citizen, not arm up for potential conflict. We have the armed forces (Army, Navy, Air Force & Marines), the National Guard & state and local police to protect our interests overseas, protect our borders & uphold the laws of the land. So again I ask, What does the FDA, the IRS, the department of Social Security and countless other federal agencies need to buy firearms, ammo, and body armor for? The article below is interesting in the fact it brings up and addresses the issue. Is President Obama planning on becoming a dictator? Really? While I am far from a fan of the man, and I believe he has been one of the worst presidents ever, overstepping his powers of office at every turn and pretty much spitting on the Constitution and morality, one needs to look further… beyond the president. Every wonder why he rose so quickly to his current position? Do some investigating. Our sister site, Hammering Truth has some very interesting links that will educate you as to the truth of the matter. Read the the article below. Talk to your friends about it. See what they think. Spread the word. Don’t allow your liberties and freedoms to be taken away for any reason!

 

Why are federal agencies arming themselves?

By Chad Groening, OneNewsNow.com

Mike Hammond, legislative council to Gun Owners of America, says it follows a pattern of other federal agencies that seem to be preparing for war – against us.

“We suspect that the federal government is anticipating and preparing for confrontation with American citizens,” he says, wondering aloud if President Obama is preparing for a dictatorship.

“What are the characteristics of a dictatorship?” Hammond asks rhetorically. “An individual who is bound not by the law, but by his own desires and his own goals. And that may be where we are now.”

In an online story with more than 6,000 comments, Breitbart.com reported that the USDA put in a solicitation for lightweight submachine guns on May 7.

The Washington Times reported the federal agency is also requesting body armor.

The official request can be viewed here.

In a 2013 story about the “stockpile myth,” Breitbart.com sought to downplay concerns – if not hysteria – over ammunition purchases by the federal government.

A second 2013 story at Forbes.com quoted a spokesman for the Department of Homeland Security, who told Congress the agency is not stockpiling ammunition and buys in bulk to save money.

The ammunition purchases were the topic of a congressional hearing, Forbes reported last year.

Still, Hammond wonders if the USDA closely watched the Cliven Bundy confrontation, when armed American citizens faced off against Bureau of Land Management agents in Nevada in past weeks.

He says it doesn’t make sense for the financially strapped U.S. Postal Service and the Social Security Administration to buy hundreds of thousands of rounds of ammunition.

The Washington Times story noted the purchases of small-arms ammunition by both agencies. The newspaper also noted the Department of Homeland Security had requested 450 million rounds of ammunition, and the FBI had requested 100 million rounds.

While various government agencies are stocking up on ammo, Hammond claims the Obama administration is making it increasingly difficult for American citizens to obtain ammunition. GOA discussed the ammo shortage on its website.
