So let me get this straight.

If you are an active shooter engaged in illegal murderous activity, the Federal cops are being asked to leave you alone.

If you are a legally armed citizen going about his normal, everyday, legal business, the local cops are supposed to prone you out and hope for a furtive movement.

Does that about sum up Amerika these days?

DHS is an abomination, and it should be dissolved. If they're advocating non-action tactics like this, I'm guessing that is why they are buying all those armored vehicles, something to hide in. That doesn't, on the other hand, explain why they bought all those bullets though..... confusing.

Yet another ridiculous rule for the unconstitutional department. I think its hilarious. Why? Because some Brady campaign type got into the dhs and decided that violence meeting violence is not an option. Another reason to get back to old school America.

WOD, these sound like the same instructions given to the UN "Peacekeeping Forces", who hide in their armored vehicles if there's trouble of any kind. The theory is obvious - keep their part of the peace by not interfering with the BGs. I'm sure this makes political sense to somebody in DHS, as well. Their leadership is composed of cowards... just like the UN approach of sending 25 warnings (followed by a dozen or so strongly worded letters of condemnation) to a country that doesn't comply with their UN resolutions. Much of the government should be dissolved, due to duplication of effort and overlap of responsibilities. (Personally, I think the Border Patrol, ICE, FBI, CIA, Secret Service, and all Military intelligence units (including NCIS, OSI and CID) should fall under the umbrella of, and report directly to, the NSA on any matters that may be of consequence to national security.) Just my thoughts. The IRS should be cut in half, and all members of Congress should take a 50% pay cut, a 50% reduction in "staff", and not be given a full-pay retirement after one term. Those actions would save the government a bundle! Pax...
