The Right of the Government to Keep and Bear Arms Shall Not Be Infringed?

Armed Agencies

We'll skip the routine law enforcement and military agencies that one expects to be armed and highlight some interesting other agencies that maintain their own armed law enforcement.

National Institute of Standards
Defense Logistics Agency
Department of Education
National Institute of Health
Department of Housing and Urban Development
Department of Veteran's Affairs
US Government Printing Office
US Supreme Court
Office of Personnel Management
Railroad Retirement Board
Smithsonian Institute Office of Protective Services

And that is just to name a few.  Do you think there is budgetary cost savings to be realized by having one branch of federal law enforcement?  Do you think we may be overdoing it a bit when the Smithsonian has its own police force?

Here is an interesting story of a raid conducted by the Department of Education in the Washington Post

Po Po it's RR5-0!
