(CNSNews) SSA posted a “Request for Quote for Ammunition” on the FedBizOps.gov website on Aug. 7. The request listed the commodity that SSA desired as “.357 Sig 125 grain bonded jacketed hollow point pistol ammunition.” The quantity listed was “174 TH.”
The Social Security Administration posted a blog on Thursday to explain why it was planning to purchase 174,000 hollow point bullets.
Posted on the agency’s website “Beyond the Numbers”, SSA has 295 special agents who work in 66 offices across the United States.
According to SSA’s Office of the Inspector General [OIG], “These investigators have full law enforcement authority, including executing search warrants and making arrests. Our investigators are similar to your State or local police officers. [Who knew?]
“They use traditional investigative techniques, and they are armed when on official duty.”
“Our special agents need to be armed and trained appropriately. They not only investigate allegations of Social Security fraud, but they also are called to respond to threats against Social Security offices, employees, and customers.”
“SSA is processing more applications than ever, which means more traffic in SSA office. Employee and visitor safety is the highest priority for OIG, which, together with the Federal Protective Services and local law enforcement, has jurisdiction over SSA workplaces.”
Prior to the blog being posted, CNSNews.com had asked the agency specific questions about its ammunition order. Although some of those questions were addressed by the information provided in the blog, the agency did not say why it needed 174,000 bullets and if that quantity was customary or had increased from previous orders.
Seems every branch of government; Dept. of Agriculture, DHS, TSA, etc., is being armed and are stockpiling ammo, all the while trying to disarm the citizens.
These purchases of ammo are excessive to say the least. Is this more of the Obama administration’s evil handiwork for a civilain army?
If you’re not concern about this, you should be. Can you say “POLICE STATE?”
Best advice to you….”When in Rome – Do As The Romans Do”
This is another reason to vote Obama out!
