Tell Congress to Disarm Regulatory Agencies like USDA & FDA - Fax Your U.S. Representative
Police at 2011 Raid on Rawesome
The recent solicitation by USDA for submachine guns raises concern among farmers and local food consumers. Why would an agency tasked with regulating agriculture in our country need such weapons?

Answer: It shouldn't. If agency officials face a situation in which armed backup is truly called for, they can go through the proper procedures to have support from the Department of Justice.

Having in-house SWAT teams and armed personnel makes it too easy to turn a non-hazardous situation into an armed raid that abuses the rights of our citizens. Bureaucrats aren't hired or properly trained for dangerous law enforcement situations. Moreover, it's a waste of taxpayer dollars to provide weapons to each individual agency.

Sign this FAX petition: I urge you to co-sponsor HR 4934 to demilitarize regulatory agencies like USDA and FDA; if necessary, such agencies can get armed back-up from properly-trained enforcement personnel like the FBI, U.S. marshals and local police.
