Wrong time to buy bullets at Social Security Administration
The Kansas City Star
What were the people at the Social Security Administration thinking?
There would seem to be no imaginable reason for the government agency that provides benefits to retirees, disabled workers, widows and children to purchase 174,000 rounds of hollow-point bullets or bullets of any kind. The Associated Press reports that the bullets are for the Social Security’s office of inspector general, which includes nearly 300 agents who investigate fraud and other crimes.
The agents carry guns and make arrests. But the ammunition purchase especially in that quantity raises suspicions about the government arming itself against the citizens it is supposed to serve.
If it were the National Rifle Association buying such bullets, no one would bat an eye.
But Social Security? Say it isn’t so.
