There is absolutely no reason for an EPA employee to be armed. They are not law enforcement.

Well, they ARE part of the “executive” branch, and perhaps they might just want to “execute” something.
Tell them that. And tell the people who have not been able to build on their lots, and companies who have accumulated massive fines for almost nothing.
They are jack booted thugs.
You'd think so, but you'd be wrong. Even the Dept. of Education has an armed security force.
Yes they are ‘law enforcement’. This is how utterly corrupted our government has become.
Some of the enforcement officers are authorized to carry firearms. They or their autos have occasionally been fired upon while carrying out their duties though I don’t know of any being hit. Does the guy say that the weapons were ever drawn?
Since some of the Midnight dumpers are mobbed-up it is easy to justify. Watch the Sopranos for reference.
