More Security Theatre II


U.S. puts machine-guns on Great Lakes coast guard vessels:

For the first time since 1817, U.S. Coast Guard vessels on the Great Lakes are being outfitted with weapons - machine-guns capable of firing 600 bullets a minute. Until now, coast guard officers have been armed with handguns and rifles, but the vessels themselves haven't been equipped with weapons.

Because, you know, any threats the US is exposed to are not exacerbated in any way at all by shoving guns in people's faces and insisting they they have to right to project force wherever they damn well like.
