Dept. of Agriculture Orders Ballistic Body Armor

A May 7th solicitation by the U.S. Department of Agriculture seeks "the commercial acquisition of ballistic vests, compliant with NIJ 0101.06 for Level IIIA Ballistic Resistance of body armor."

According to the solicitation, "The U.S. Department of Agriculture, Office of Inspector General," seeks "Body Armor [that] is gender specific, lightweight, [having] trauma plate/pad (hard or soft), [and] concealable carrier." The order includes "tactical vest, undergarment (white), identification patches, accessories (6 pouches), body armor carry bag, and professional measurements."

"All responsible and/or interested sources may submit their company name, point of contact, and telephone number." The solicitation says those sources received in a "timely" manner "shall be considered by the agency for contact."

To compliment the automatic weapons they are buying... We all know that the Department of Agriculture faces serious threats everyday. Ahhhh, maybe they are going to go into the fields and round up the illegals immigrants or undocumented illegal immigrants.. never mind.

The federal agencies are preparing for a revolt of the citizenry and spending the citizens money for that preparation.

can you say "Hunger Games"

Do you think they are really buying this stuff, it is really going to them? Or are we shipping it to Mexico?

Yeah, the records show it, but I doubt it is being used for them

12:47 PM I have been saying that ever since I saw the movie Hunger Games. I don't see many people commenting on the movie so they are to stupid to realize that is the future of America.
