Well, they sure aren’t using them to defend our borders.
So, why does the Department of Homeland Security need 7000 “assault rifles”? Rifles that the liberal media and their gun-grabbing acolytes constantly remind us “belong on the battlefield, not in the classroom…”
Since we know that the Dept. of Homeland Security isn’t engaged in any wars outside of the United States — who are they at war with? The people?
Via Natural News:
The Obama White House and several members of Congress don’t want you to have military look-alike rifles they say are unnecessary for self-defense, but apparently this administration has no problem arming itself with the same weapons…for personal defense.
As such, the Department of Homeland Security is looking to buy 7,000 5.56x45mm NATO “personal defense weapons” (PDW) for its personnel – guns that are called “assault weapons” when civilians own them.
Steve McGough of RadioViceOnline.com, citing a General Service Administration request for proposal, reported that DHS is seeking the 7,000 “select-fire” weapons because they are “suitable for personal defense in close quarters.”
In addition to soliciting for these “personal defense weapons,” DHS is also seeking 30-round magazines for the weapons (yes, the same magazine capacity that Obama, Sen. Dianne Feinstein of Calif., and other progressive-left politicians want to prevent civilian gun owners from legally possessing).
You’re damned-right they’re “suitable for personal defense in close quarters.” That’s why we, the people, own them. Well, that and the fact that they’re a blast to shoot just for fun of it.
