The USDA Goes Tactical In A Big Way Soliciting Submachine Guns

The USDA Goes Tactical In A Big Way  Soliciting Submachine Guns

CONTINUED MILITARIZATION OF ALL AGENCIES


The US Department Of Agriculture has posted a solicitation to buy an unknown quantity of tactical fire power.  The first question that comes to mind is why does the USDA, who handles things like cows, plants and cheese among other things, need SWAT style weapons. 
  


"The U.S. Department of Agriculture, Office of Inspector General, located in Washington, DC, pursuant to the authority of FAR Part 13, has a requirement for the commerical [sic] acquisition of submachine guns, .40 Cal. S&W, ambidextrous safety, semi-automatic or 2 shot burts [sic] trigger group, Tritium night sights for front and rear, rails for attachment of flashlight (front under fore grip) and scope (top rear), stock-collapsilbe [sic] or folding, magazine - 30 rd. capacity, sling, light weight, and oversized trigger guard for gloved operation.”

Although the solicitation does not give much detail, it has sparked the attention of many gun right groups and internet based media. Some are speculating that these weapons may be purchased for the forestry service, since it falls under the USDA's jurisdiction.



This recent development is sure to create a rash of speculation and very little answers.  Just as with the Department Of Homeland Security's past bulk hollow point ammunition purchases.
