At a time when President Obama and his fellow Democrats continually voice their deep concern over the American populace having access to firearms, the federal government continues to arm themselves with an arsenal that ought to send shivers up the spine of any American who has educated themselves on the nature of government.
In 2008, then-presidential candidate uttered words that should have destroyed his campaign then and there: Sen. Obama claimed that we needed a domestic security force (think Brownshirts).
“We cannot continue to rely on our military in order to achieve the national security objectives 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.”
Why Sen. Obama was not thoroughly dismissed as a tyrant-in-waiting is a true testament to the power of the ideological media lapdogs.

It seems now-President Obama is accomplishing his goal. According to a document from the Federal Business Opportunity office, the Department of Agriculture has requested .40 S&W submachine guns with the so-called “high-capacity” magazines that remain so reviled by the lunatic left.
The solicitation asks for “ambidextrous safety, semiautomatic or 2 round [bursts] trigger group, Tritium night sights front and rear, rails for attachment of flashlight (front under fore group) and scope (top rear), stock collapsible or folding,” and a “30 rd. capacity” magazine.
In April, TPNN reported on the massive amount of firepower being afforded to regulatory federal agencies:
Just days ago, the U.S. Postal Service announced that they are looking for distributors to sell them assorted small arms ammunition. Last year, the Social Security Administration purchased 174,000 rounds of .357 jacketed hollow-point bullets. The Department of Agriculture requested 320,000 rounds and recently, the Department of Homeland Security requested 450 million rounds and the FBI requested 100 million rounds. Even the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration got in on the action and requested 46,000 rounds. Why a weather service needs ammunition remains unclear.
While it is not inherently sinister to arm law enforcement agents, when piecing together the various bits of information, it seems clear that President Obama has slowly assembled a loose confederation of paramilitary forces.
We have weathermen well-armed, the Post Office strapped and the Department of Agriculture requesting submachine guns in order to … well, do what, exactly?
When we combine these sobering facts with the president’s earlier stated desire to assemble a domestic security force, it is startling to say the least. When we similarly consider that this is happening at a time when the President crusades for civilian disarmament and regulatory agencies like the BLM are militantly overstepping their bounds, what remains is an obvious, toxic brew of federal militancy and a looming threat of tyranny.
