A May 7th solicitation by the U.S. Department of Agriculture seeks "the commercial acquisition of submachine guns [in] .40 Cal. S&W."
Have the corn fields been 'stalking' people?  Have turnip fields taken a 'beet-ing'. Lettuce end these types of acquisitions now.  There is no need for this Dept. to have submachineguns.

Someone might get sick from raw milk... so we should SHOOT them to stop them from drinking it!

USDA OIG investigates welfare fraud, which involves warrant service in some really, really crappy neighborhoods - the kind where the agents might be attacked by uninvolved 3rd parties just because. They also investigate crimes like dog fighting (which usually has an interstate component), which can involve warrant service on large crowds, many with felony histories.

The issue is not whether this agency needs SMGs, but whether *any* agency needs full auto weapons, and whether those agencies deploy them appropriately.

Days, United States Forestry Service is part of Dept. of Ag. (Check the TO&E of DoA).

Dopers and meth heads.

The req. is for the Office of the Inspector General. I *believe* Forest Service gets ARs - more appropriate for a rural or wilderness environment. *However*, OIG would be responsible for investigating malfeasance in the Forest Service. I'd want a select-fire long gun, going to arrest someone with a select-fire long gun...

USDA OIG also investigates smuggling, assault on USDA personnel, related extortion and bribery.

Armed agents are not especially unreasonably for that job.

(Sure, Congress could decide to make the FBI bigger and do all Federal OIG-ish work through it ... but then we'd either end up with FBI agents enforcing laws they weren't experts in on the say-so of someone in USDA, or equally FBI agents that Might As Well Just Be USDA Agents.)

Because the Military honors the Constitution, and remember their oath. These bureaucratic knuckleheads have no such compunction, so their being "conscripted" into Obama's civilian army. They will be happy to fire on civilians.

Perhaps USDA wants to be ready to give the peasants "a whiff of grape."
