Welcome to an America run by ninja bureaucrats.
At a time when many of our lawmakers would love to see the American people disarmed the government is arming up. Dozens of federal agencies now have agents who carry guns. This includes such agencies as The Library of Congress and the Government Printing Office.
With an increasingly weaponized bureaucracy the coercive pressure on private individuals and private business is also increased.
Better make sure those political contributions keep flowing. You wouldn’t want a team of federal agents with assault rifles shutting your mine down would you? Boy that would be costly. Way more costly than just keeping us happy in Washington DC.

In May 2012, North Carolina resident Larry Keller was visited by armed EPA agents after sending an email to Al Armendariz, the regional administrator who was video-taped saying his enforcement strategy was to “crucify” executives from big oil and gas companies.
“The charter of the EPA is to protect the environment and public, not to act as a quasi federal police department,” Keller said after the brief but tense exchange with agents about whether the missive might seem suspicious.
