are government employees no longer equal to citizens?

The HHS Office of Inspector General had 444 FLEOs. This force was armed with 1,061 pistols, 12 revolvers, 194 fully automatic firearms, 1 shotgun, and 2 rifles. It also had 541,864 pistol and revolver rounds. 386,952 fully automatic firearms rounds, 225 shotgun rounds, and 420 rifle rounds.

I ask, why the **** does HHS need 194 full auto machine guns? So they can enforce the Obamacare mandate? Rhetorically, of course.

Haven't we been through this enough? A gun enthusiast site and your posting an article that refers to ammo as "fully automatic firearms rounds".

I'm sure those LEO's are deployed for site security, internal theft investigations, and other "task forces". .Gov has always been "spend it or lose it" so rounds are bought regardless of need.

Do you really think that .Gov is building a secret army to come and harm you or other citizens? If they were so inclined they would do it under .Mil purchases that no one would blink an eye to. Not for a few hundred LEO's in a unit.

But drink the Kool-Aid. I heard it was Egg-Nog flavored.

OP is less tin foil and more government spending woes?

And fully automatic bullet rounds for clips are very cheap and easy to come by at any sports store, no ID of course.

And here I thought this was going to be a complaint about the government shutdown and furloughs.

Perhaps...I don't get the thread title then. Can citizens not purchase that amount of ammo? Can they not purchase firearms?

Every government budget I've been around has always been spend it or give it back and don't expect it next year. So one year you don't have as many qualifications or you don't have as many training sessions. I doubt anyone running that budget is going to knock off 8-15k rounds off of their request. They are just going to put it in the corner and go from there. And when the system says "no" you'll have it.

Obviously the system would run better if that wasn't the case. One would think a "needs based" system would be better. It is just not the case.

You mean your boss doesn't expect you to work and not get paid. Or allows you to stay home and get back pay?

That's more of a "treating folks different" or a "waste of budget" if you ask me than a few guns and cases of ammo that sit around.

HHS has 194 full auto firearms. Full auto, made after 1986. Somehow I think thats out of reach of the ordinary person who cam pass a 4473.

...
Not legally, we can't. New automatic firearms are banned for civilian purchase, counter to the 2A.

Just guessing that was the point.
