    Dept. of Agriculture orders body armor to go with their submachine guns. SWATting?

    A May 7th solicitation by the U.S. Department of Agriculture seeks "the commercial acquisition of ballistic vests, compliant with NIJ 0101.06 for Level IIIA Ballistic Resistance of body armor."

    According to the solicitation (https://www.fbo.gov/?s=opportunity&m...=core&_cview=0), "The U.S. Department of Agriculture, Office of Inspector General," seeks "Body Armor [that] is gender specific, lightweight, [having] trauma plate/pad (hard or soft), [and] concealable carrier." The order includes "tactical vest, undergarment (white), identification patches, accessories (6 pouches), body armor carry bag, and professional measurements."

    I'm taking a guess that this stuff is aimed at pot farmers, with the recent WA & CO actions.

    I wouldn't think so. IIRC, they are feds, why would they regulate or monitor something their bosses boss deemed illegal? DEA possibly FBI gearing up would be more appropriate. Then again, the IRS has made guidelines for the stores to follow come tax time, so anything is possible.
