How much heat does the federal government pack?

The Justice Department plans to find out by taking an inventory of all federal agencies whose agents carry weapons and make arrests, Newsmax reports.

The Bureau of Justice Statistics will collect the data.

“It’s certainly proper for every agency to have an accurate accounting of what firearms it has,” said Dave Workman, communications director for the Citizens Committee for the Right to Keep and Bear Arms. “After all, these guns don’t belong to the agents. They belong to the taxpayers. We paid for that stuff.”

In 2008, the last time such an inventory was undertaken, the Justice Department found that 120,000 government employees were armed at 73 agencies.
