And how many hundred thousand rounds of hollow-point ammo was it that the EPA ordered? Anyone remember?
Along those lines:
“As of 2011, there are at least 25,000 sworn (and armed) law enforcement officers working for federal agencies not traditionally associated with law enforcement, and 3,800 of them were specifically criminal investigators.
The list of agenciesmany of which are recent creationsthat have their own police forces is staggering. Even the Environmental Protection Agency has its own sworn officers, as does The National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA). While NOAA only has 63 officers today, the EPA started out with one armed officer in 1978 and as of last year it had 265. There is also the General Services Administration, the Department of Education, Agriculture, Housing and Urban Developmentand the list goes on.
This is not to say that these agencies do not pursue, in many cases, real violations and crimes. And the protections intended by the laws themselves may be necessary. But the problem is that state and local law enforcement should be tasked to handle many of the issues that have been transformed into federal concerns.”
“Is the government preparing for civil unrest by amassing stockpiles of ammunition purchased through various government agencies such as the National Weather Service to complement purchases made through the Department of Homeland Security?
A solicitation appearing on the FedBizOps website asks for delivery of 46,000 rounds of .40 S&W JHP to the National Weather Service in various locations on the East Coast along with a request for 500 paper targets. This follows a previous DHS purchase of 450 million rounds of .40 hollow point ammunition back in March. It should be noted that hollow point ammunition has been ‘illegal in international warfare since 1899.’ “
Not a good thing, not by a long shot.
If Romney wins, it’ll time for the EPA to go or change dramatically. We the Conservatives will have to hold his feet to the fire to make sure this happens.
If Obama wins, the Doomsday Clock will go to 11:59:55. Tick-tock, tick-tock, tick-tock.....
