They do. Basically the most bizarre parts of the US federal organizations have armed agents, that is a trend that really started in the late 1980's/early 1990s, before that the the number of such agencies was MUCH lower that it is today.

It is a combination of investigators wanting to be armed agents because they will get better pay if they do, the organizations getting "street cred" for having such, the growing mutual mistrust between agencies and parts of the population, The tightened rules where such things need to be regulated and official instead of ad-hock and many more reasons.
