Washington, DC – After a backlash of complaints from concerned citizens, Oklahoma Congressman Jim Bridenstine puts the USDA on notice that he wants an explanation why the farm business development department of the U.S. Government needs an unknown quantity of .40 Cal. S&W submachine guns?
Says Congressman Jim Bridenstine “The fear of my constituents is that the USDA is expanding outside of its Intended mission.”
Speculating on their answer Bob Owens writes:
“They will no doubt attempt to justify their purchase of military hardware by explaining that they conduct criminal investigations and may need to do armed raids” , adding, “This is part of a trend to arm every branch of federal government, whether the individual agency has a legitimate need for a paramilitary force or not.”
