Why are feds amassing weapons?
Tim Gaertner Updated
After grabbing legal power, federal bureaucrats are amassing firepower. Employees of the following non-defense-related agencies are arming themselves with hundreds of millions of dollars worth of weapons. They include AR-15 rifles, massive amounts of ammo, night-vision equipment, body armor, shotguns, .308 caliber rifles, propane cannons, liquid explosives, pyro supplies, buckshot, LP gas cannons, drones, remote-control helicopters, thermal cameras, military waterproof thermal infrared scopes and more.
These paper-pushing federal agencies with firearms and arrest authority have exceeded 200,000 people – more than troops in the U.S. Marine Corps. They include the IRS, health and Human Services, the Veterans Administration, Smithsonian Institution, the U.S. mint, Animal and Plant Health Inspection Service, the EPA, Food and Drug Administration, Small Business Administration, Social Security Administration, National Oceanic and Atmosphere Administration, Education Department, Energy Department, Bureau of Engineering and Printing, National Institute of Standards and Technology and many others, some 67 agencies in all.
Early in his power, Barack Obama said he wanted a civilian army equally equipped and in number to the U.S. armed forces. Why all this? Why a federal civilian army? Who will they attack? Of course, our Second Amendment rights would be abolished under a Hillary Clinton presidency, directed by George Soros and the United Nations.
