Another odd solicitation to purchase by the US. government in the month of May. According the FedBizOpp.gov, (A known website for federal procurement opportunities is Federal Business Opportunities. This site has government contract opportunities greater than $25,000) U.S. Department of Agriculture ((USDA) is seeking to purchase sub-machine guns .40 Cal S&W, night sights and other firearm related equipment. Is the FDA going to war with the killer tomato? Or maybe they are doing special operations in the GMO cornfields?
