If you have to give CNS a click, just skip down to the comments for the real fun... it's derptastic.
 
2012-08-17 08:01:36 AM  
since this is CNS, i'm going to go ahead and assume that the SocSec admin does not need 174,000 hollow-point bullets.

For the guns of their security guards to help them stop Republican terrorist attacks?
 
2012-08-17 08:06:33 AM  
I actually did not know that the Social Security Administration employed any law enforcement officers. So look at that, I learned something from CNS.

But holy god, those comments. I'm going to just assume those people are all trolling each other, makes it less frightening.

Mental health is just as important as physical health, people. Get regular checkups at your local psychologist.

That's right, you didn't know. You sleep at night blissfully unaware of the nefarious mechinations of "our" government, and then you mock the Patriots who expose their schemes and tricks. Well, they don't need your approval or your appreciation. Living in Freedom is reward enough for a job well done.

Just so you know, CNSNews.con is not funded by the government like NPR or PBS. Because they are not funded by viewers like you, or have biannual pledge drives, or sell memberships at all to operate. They are filthy liberals from the government. Even during the Reagan years. And during the republican stranglehold in congress during Clinton's second term. Damn liberal cock sucking mass media!

Yep. Maybe they can donate some ammo to the SSA to keep the government from taking over Social Security.
 
2012-08-17 09:08:57 AM  
600 rounds per agent is nothing, especially since, I assume that SSA pays for their continuing training (i.e. target practice). Hell, I probably go through a minimum of 100 rounds every time I go to the range and I'm a lowly "citizen".

This is a non issue

wtf, aren't we all customers of social security? why wouldn't the normal police investigate all of those crimes

So, the Kock brother fund them too?
 
2012-08-17 09:10:37 AM  
I am going to go with either the SSA needs to pay for the weapons and ammunition for the DHS contracted gaurds at the offices or that they have an Investigative branch that employs Federal Police officers to carry out fraud investigation which includes arrests and searches and has full police powers.

*clicks link*

Yup.


BFD. Most government agencies either have a police unit to enforce the laws that agency is charged to uphold or is required to provide security to their offices.

Not gonna click, but I assume the purchase is for OIG Special Agents. Deal with those guys all the time. Good people. Not sure how this is a news story...

Oh come on, man, you're going to ruin your right wing street cred.

I can't wait till one of these knaves claims next:
"OBAMA is buying TANKS for the military! What do you think he's planning to do with these and why do you think he's keeping them on US soil?"
 
2012-08-17 09:11:45 AM  
First the secret army came to my grandfather and forced him to cash a small Social Security check, and I said nothing...
 
2012-08-17 09:11:58 AM  
I'm going to guess that a many-billions-of-dollars-per-year money collections and distribution agency might need some security. Just a thought.
 
2012-08-17 09:12:23 AM  
do the math 295 officers
50 rounds a box (generally, 20 sometimes in the case of hi perf ammo)
little over 11 boxes an agent, means less than 1 box of ammo at the range a month. Thats really very little ammo for a duty person

if its 20 rounds a box then its closer to 30 boxes per agent, but the actual round count doesn't change


I wish I only ran through 550 or so rounds a year... Then again considering how poorly you do if you don't practice, I'm glad I go through WAY more than that.
I wish I had an extra 550 rounds that I didn't have to reload, or buy to practice with for the year :-)
 
2012-08-17 09:12:29 AM  
It's plan B for keeping the trust fund solvent.
 
2012-08-17 09:12:41 AM  
As for other purchases, seems like you would purchase mostly target ammunition, not all hollowpoints.

Maybe they are just trying to keep it simple.
 
2012-08-17 09:13:55 AM  
Whats with that donation form on the (non secure, not https) page that asks for you credit card number?
 
2012-08-17 09:14:11 AM  
Also, just like the fisheries and wildlife resource officers' bullets story, why is it a big deal that they're "hollow points?" FMJ rounds go through people and walls into other people. Deforming rounds do that a lot less; which is unfortunate news for the target but better in general for the surrounding populace.
 
2012-08-17 09:14:24 AM  
They're for the death panels, obviously.

That is a good point. Maybe they only buy once every few years.

Because the States aren't going to pay for enforcing federal law and they don't have the knowledge anyway.

I know a guy that got pulled over for roling through a red light and failure to signal at a non rail road traffic light by Amtrak Police. Yes there is a thing as Federal Traffic Court. And yes they have full police authority.

I had to go to the SS office a while back and was really surprised to see armed guards at the door. Lol, they made me take my leatherman back to my truck. The two of them just stood around talking to each other for the most part. Don't know why they need to be armed, they are mostly receptionist that tell people which line they need to be in. A temp worker behind a desk could do the same thing. If anyone gave them trouble - they could just walk over and take the cane or walker away from the offending party.

I'm more interested in the use of .357 sig. I don't see to many of those, normally it's 9mm, .40 SW, or .45 for police. I wonder what their duty handgun is.
