Social Security Administration Buying 174,000 Bullets


CNSNews.com is reporting that the Social Security administration is buying …bullets?

The Social Security Administration posted a blog on Thursday to explain why it was planning to purchase 174,000 hollow point bullets.

SSA posted a “Request for Quote for Ammunition” on the FedBizOps.gov website on Aug. 7. The request listedthe commodity that SSA desired as “.357 Sig 125 grain bonded jacketed hollow point pistol ammunition.” The quantity listed was “174 TH.”
The SSA “thought it would be appropriate to address recent media reports regarding the organization’s purchase of ammunition for our special agents’ duty weapons.”

The Number 1 Sign People Are Becoming Angry With the Social Security Ponzi Scheme – The Social Security Administration purchases 174,000 bullets to arm the SSA special agents who “respond to threats against Social Security offices, employees, and customers.”

The blog states that the SSA has 295 special agents who work in 66 offices across the United States.

“These investigators have full law enforcement authority, including executing search warrants and making arrests,” the blog post states. “Our investigators are similar to your State or local police officers.

“They use traditional investigative techniques, and they are armed when on official duty,” the blog post states.”

This isn’t entirely crazy, because the SSA said they are “processing more applications than ever, which means more traffic in SSA offices,” and they are extremely concerned about employee safety, but is this not a sign of an inefficient system?

If the government thinks Social Security is “fine” and people aren’t already becoming upset with the system headed for bankruptcy, even though we all pay into it every single day, then they quite possibly need to take a second look at everything. I actually understand the SSA buying ammunition for their guards, because employee safety is extremely important, but let’s look at the cause here instead of the effect.
