If ‘Assault Weapons’ Are Bad…Why Does DHS Want to Buy 7,000 of Them for ‘Personal Defense’?

How funny. A REAL assault rifle–ie. one with “automatic fire”–is called a “personal defense weapon” by the Obama administration…

The Department of Homeland Security is seeking to acquire 7,000 5.56x45mm NATO “personal defense weapons” PDW — also known as “assault weapons” when owned by civilians. The solicitation, originally posted on June 7, 2012, comes to light as the Obama administration is calling for a ban on semi-automatic rifles and high capacity magazines.Citing a General Service Administration GSA request for proposal RFP, Steve McGough of RadioViceOnline.com reports that DHS is asking for the 7,000 “select-fire” firearms because they are “suitable for personal defense use in close quarters.” The term select-fire means the weapon can be both semi-automatic and automatic. Civilians are prohibited from obtaining these kinds of weapons.
