The U.S. is not supposed to be a police state. Why would a civilian government agency need submachine guns with 30 round capacity? Who are they planning to shoot?

All this is an Obama middle finger salute to America.

This will come to naught because Americans will not fire on Americans.

Obama is simply trying to intimidate us...and I'll bet he (and Soros) own(s) stock in arms and ammo companies.

If he doesn't, he's an idiot.

Pretty cool, huh?

Fill out a federal employment form and a few days later, presto: you get to intimidate people you grew up with a machine gun!

You’re now one of the Big People, like the Soviet Nomenklatura!

Not Little People...too grubby, and miserable. They only get to vote, and who cares about that? We just write some new Regs and Presto! Your vote doesn’t matter.

Great deal for the people who seek to rule others.

For the rest of us...back to Feudalism.

Hope the Tithes don’t get too big.

The only reason our game wardens and such carried weapons was to dispatch injured or dangerous animals.

This was a number of years ago.

I honestly never saw a gubamint official that came anywhere near our farm packing as it were,, what has changed?

We cannot continue to rely only on our military in order to achieve the national security objectives that 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.

Barack Obama

Begs the question, just what are his national security objectives???

That’s a tender topic..

Recent polls might suggest it is a scab that bears pulling at some point.. No, with recent developments, demands a good going over.

Better to let the pus out and clean the wound

Than let the whole limb go bad and fester away.

We have survived worse..

Endured worse..

And deserve far better.

Decent conservative folks think I'm a fool because I'm doing what you're doing all the while letting folks now they have only two choices...live under the weight of this tyranny or rebel. Instead, I'm cautioned to vote Republican and wait and see what happens after the the next election cycle. Problem is, I've been told that nonsense for over 20 years now.

The days of ensuring our liberties with the ballot box have past. It's time for the cartridge box.

And some of those FedGov workers will be surprised to learn what good shots Americans are.

Heheh.

I've been shooting since about age 7. Have gotten pretty good and have an AR-15.

Well, of course, I lost my AR-15 up in that river accident...but I am still good with a .22 LR.

Right. As we see today with the medical practitioners at the illegal alien facilities, the most we would ever have to be concerned about is fellow Americans confiscating our cell phones and arresting us for speaking our minds about conditions at our work.

I wonder if any of the 1930's Germans ever said "Germans will not fire on Germans"?

These weapons are for spraying into crowds.

They’re not known for their accuracy.

Fortunately any AR-15 can fight back from well outside the range of these submachine guns.

Obaba and the Dems disarm the citizens.
But there has never been a bigger gun nut than Obaba...billions of rounds of dum-dum ammo (illegal for military use), machine guns, grenades, armored vehicles.

Anyone see where this bandit regime is moving towards?

Cops don’t need machine guns.
And for sure the Dept of Agriculture does not need machine guns.

So...why the billions of hollowpoint bullets and thousands of machine guns/military assault weapons?

Anyone want to guess who is going to be shot?
