Obama’s Gun Control Hypocrisy REVEALED…It’s Not About Public Safety – SCARY!
By Kathy Shaidle|July 8, 2016

The Obama administration doesn’t want ordinary Americans to have guns, but after seeing this latest shocking report, it looks like the government just wants to keep them all for themselves.

It’s one thing to provide firearms and equipment to our men and women in uniform, but would you believe that $5 million worth on firearms and “military gear” was purchased by the Department of Agriculture?

Circa News reports that the department’s Animal and Plant Health Inspection Service “reported buying $4.7 million in high-powered weapons, ammunition and military gear during the last decade, including shotguns, night vision goggles, and propane cannons, according to federal purchasing records reviewed by the nonpartisan government spending watchdog openthebooks.com.”

The agency says it needs the equipment to protect its workers in the wild from feral swine, more commonly known as wild hogs. But spending critics like openthebooks.com see such purchases as part of a much larger trend toward militarizing federal civilian agencies and local police at taxpayer expense.

And the irony is such purchases have massively expanded over the last decade, even as President Obama has repeatedly pushed to limit access to high-powered gun and weapons in America, most recently after the Orlando terror attack last month.

They report that agencies like the EPA and the Food and Drug Administration have also started spending heavily on guns and ammunition — along with six-figure sums for paint ball equipment. The ultimate insult is that overtaxed citizens are the ones paying for all this.

Remember this story the next time Obama, Hillary or some other liberal scolds you for owning a hunting rifle.
