So it’s okay for the government, but not okay for the citizen? I am pretty sure the founders had the same gun tech as the military at the time, no?

Here’s a counter proposal

DISARM THEM.

Make them work with local law enforcement authorities (sheriffs) when then need to enforce their edicts.

The Marxist villain in the Oval Office is implementing his plan for a “civilian police force” while strangling the regular military.

Sort of like creating a force of SA troopers.

Yes, well you see, sometimes land gets unruly and is hard to manage. At these times, you must have heavy firepower to manage the land.

This is exactly how it should work, and how it has worked historically. The militarization of the federal government should frighten all Americans, but the left love an oppressive, fascist government when they are in control. When they are not in control, suddenly they take to the streets shouting “No blood for oil” and “Bush is Hitler”.

It just amazes me that any government agency can order whatever kind of weapons they want without any kind of oversight. These weapons are to be potentially used against citizens, and the citizens, the free, are the ones restricted or banned outright from owning them at all. Things are a little lopsided in my opinion.

BS. The RFQ is for agriculture NOT BLM which is under interior.

Bad enough the farm feds want them. Many on FR make fun of "conspiracy sites" but instantly believe any garbage posted.

Step 1) Buy a boatload of handgun ammunition, for "training".

Step 2) Buy a boatload of submachineguns, designed coincidentally for that handgun ammunition.

Looks like BLM’s Feudal Lord Reid is planning to mange his person Land with guns, Guns, GUNS!

Home, home on Obamanation!

Thanks to Boehner from Obama,

O.K.

I screwed that one up. It IS the Department of Agriculture, not BLM.

But that hardly makes it less alarming and I’m sure these two agencies can exchange material and ordinance if they desire.

We were warned in 1970 that the Government was pushing for a Federal Police Force.

Now it is here.

Kind of worthless. Submachineguns are marginal close-in weapons that either shoot too fast - and recoil strongly, making fellow-on shots go high, or they shoot too slowly and have marginal effectiveness. SMGs are also useless once you are out of loaded magazines.

Military shotguns are much better weapons for the same tactical envelope as the SMG and far more controllable and in most cases, lighter in weight.

Many years ago, I swapped my M-14 for an M-3A1 Greasegun - and I imagined that I was Steve McQueen. Damn thing was heavy and useless in a fight, so I got my M-14 back.

The government entity ordering these weapons either doesn’t really have a mission for them, or they are ordering them for cosmetic reasons. Either way, a waste of our money.

I do.

The article speaks for itself. Most people wouldn’t know which dept. BLM was in.

Thank you for educating us.

Gosh! Those government employees have to be better armed in order to keep all those tax-paying citizens who pay their paychecks in line. To keep your boot on the citizenery's neck*, you gotta be able to back it up, don'cha know? sarcasm

I’m of mixed minds for this. One the one hand, I’d prefer 9mm so they don’t eat up all the .40 on the shelves. On the other hand, there’ll be lots of free ammo lying around within a couple years that I can use.

Here’s a way to keep them separate in your mind: BLM will post warnings that feeding wildlife will make them dependent on those handouts, and the Department of Agriculture issues food stamps.

Bureau of Land Management Bids for Submachine Guns

Bureau of Land Management is part of the Department of the Interior, not the Department of Agriculture.
