Today, the U.S. House Committee on Oversight and Government Reform, held hearings on the security of the gun and ammunition lockers at Homeland Security (DHS), Federal Prison System (FPS), and Bureau of Land Management (BLM).

Congressman Mark Meadows (R-NC) grills the administrators on their weaponry and coding mistakes:

  • 1.7 billion bullets procured by DHS
  • Women’s hygiene products mis-coded as body armor at FPS
  • Cable TV described as ‘Cable Dude’ and coded by DHS as guns
  • 4,700 bayonets flowing to DHS from military surplus – why?

Today, Adam Andrzejewski, CEO of OpenTheBooks, is published in the Washington Times with an editorial, “Firepower for the Feds?”

Here’s a quick summary of Andrzejewski’s important column:

* Our honorary chairman, former Sen. Tom Coburn, issued a clarion call for an assault weapons ban at the federal administrative agencies.

* Who is the Department of Homeland Security (DHS) preparing to battle after procurement orders for 1.7 billion bullets and 452 million hollow-point rounds?
* Why isn’t the U.S. border secure? Since 1993, the number of border and immigration officers tripled from 20,000 to 60,000, as undocumented entrants also tripled.
