DHS to buy 7000 full-auto assault rifles, calls them ‘personal defense weapons’

Figure out this US government action and tell me where there is any trace of sanity involved?

Sanity in arming civil services with assault weapons  and enough ammunition to kill the whole American population 4 times over? Sanity in the general public believing that there is nothing wrong with the plan, activity, that is something that is ok, and is to do with their well-being?  Nothing to worry about??

Please give me one plausible reason for the government to be doing this?

This is an article from ‘Natural News’, by the Editor, Mike Adams revealing this horrific scenario.

(NaturalNews) In yet another huge blow to the rhetoric and narrative of the Obama administration and its desire to disarm the American public, a DHS bid has been uncovered (see documents below) showing that the Department of Homeland Security recently put out an offer to purchase 7,000 full-auto “assault weapons” to be used domestically, inside the USA.

Keep in mind that President Obama is on the record saying, “AK-47s belong in the hands of soldiers, not in the hands of criminals; that they belong on the battlefield of war, not on the streets of our cities.”

But it seems he really means they don’t belong on the streets of our cities unless they are in the hands of homeland security enforcers, in which case they can be FULL-AUTO assault weapons.

The DHS bid for 7,000 full-auto assault weapons is found by clicking here. The original credit for discovering this goes, to my best knowledge, to Awr Hawkins at Breitbart.com.

In the hands of the government, they’re called “Personal Defense Weapons

The juiciest part of this bid is the use of the phrase “Personal Defense Weapons” to describe the full-auto AR-15s being purchased by DHS.

Apparently, when YOU hold an AR-15, it’s an “assault rifle.” But magically, if you hand that same rifle to an armed government homeland security enforcer, it instantly transforms itself into a “personal defense weapon.”

The request for bid actually says:

DHS and its components have a requirement for a 5.56x45mm NATO, select-fire firearm suitable for personal defense use in close quarters and / or when maximum concealment is required.

So there it is, right in black and white: DHS enforcers need full-auto AR-15s which are “suitable for personal defense in close quarters” and for “maximum concealment.”

But if you or I make the same claim, suddenly we are branded lunatics by the fringe left and all the gun grabbers across America who apparently have no clue that their own government is arming up like never before.

Senator Feinstein, the gun-grabbing Senator from California, says she wants to take all the guns from all Americans. “Mr. and Mrs. America, turn ’em all in,” she says on the record. But while Mr. and Mrs. America are turning in their guns, ‘roid-head DHS goons are arming to the teeth with full-auto assault rifles.

This is all on top of the 1.6 billion rounds of ammunition the U.S. government has already stockpiled, as was discovered last year. What kind of government wants to domestically stockpile ammo and full-auto weapons, putting them in the hands of domestic agents who have nothing whatsoever to do with overseas wars? Well, the kind of government that plans to NEED 1.6 billion rounds of ammo and full-auto assault weapons, of course.

DHS admits AR-15 with 30-round magazine is “suitable for personal defense use in close quarters”

This government document openly admits that AR-15s with 30-round magazines and capable of fully automatic fire are “suitable for personal defense” in close quarters (i.e. your home).

CNN, of course, doesn’t want you to ever hear that. Nor does Feinstein, Cuomo, Schumer, Obama, Eric Holder or any other gun grabbers. Even while their own government is arming up with 1.6 billion rounds of ammo and 7,000 full-auto “assault rifles” (plus lots more in other bids), they are trying to completely disarm the American citizenry through new gun registration and confiscation legislation. [My emphasis].

The whole point of all this, of course, is to create firepower disparity between the government and the citizenry… To disarm the People while arming up the government agents who operate domestically. That way, the people can be forced at gunpoint into doing almost anything the oppressive government demands! (Taking vaccine shots, giving up private property, turning over farms and businesses, etc.)

What’s really hard-hitting about this is that the radical left keeps claiming things like “no one needs an assault rifle for personal defense.” Okay, if that true, then the Department of Homeland Security should abandon all such rifles first! Let’s see DHS turn in all its rifles and ammo, thereby setting an example of the “fact” that “nobody needs an assault rifle” for self defense.

In truth, a full-auto AR-15 is an outstanding weapon for self defense, which is exactly why DHS is buying thousands of them. Nothing stops bad guys faster than a barrage of high-velocity lead aimed in their direction. Again, that’s why DHS wants these rifles in the first place. One of these rifles in the hands of a citizen could have stopped the Sandy Hook shooting in seconds.

Pay attention to the word games (which are really mind games)

As you observe the highly manipulated gun control argument, pay special attention to the word games you’re being subjected to:

An AR-15 in the hands of a citizen is an “assault rifle.”
But an AR-15 in the hands of a DHS agent is a “Personal Defense Weapon.”

A full-auto-capable rifle in the hands of a citizen is called a “machine gun.”
A full-auto-capable rifle in the hands of a DHS agent is called a “select-fire rifle.”

According to the media, all government agents with assault rifles are presumed innocent and assumed to be stopping crime.

But all private citizens with assault rifles are presumed guilty and assumed to be causing crime.

When one citizen goes crazy and murders a bunch of people, the call goes out for ALL citizens to be stripped of their firearms.

But when one government agent goes crazy and murders a bunch of people, the calls goes out for MORE guns to be placed in the hands of MORE government agents!

Thank you, DHS, for admitting the truth

In summary, it looks like we actually need to thank the DHS for admitting the truth that Obama won’t: AR-15s are personal defense weapons, suitable for use in close quarters, especially when equipped with 30-round magazines.

That’s why I own one, and it’s why DHS wants thousands more (but theirs are full-auto, while mine is only semi-auto).

As a general rule, all freedom-loving Americans should want the same firepower their domestic government possesses. That’s the whole point behind the Second Amendment, and it represents the distribution of power in a free society.

But instead of firepower being equal in America today, DHS is using our taxpayer dollars to purchase thousands of full-auto weapons for their own agents. This is apparently being done under ICE (Immigration and Customs Enforcement).

This brings up the question for another entire article, and here’s the question: Why does immigration need 7,000 full-auto assault rifles? Is there a friggin’ Mexican invasion planned that nobody told me about? Is ICE going to invade Mexico and start a shooting war with the Mexican drug cartels?

Seriously: Why does ICE need 7,000 full-auto assault rifles? And why does DHS need 1.6 billion rounds of ammo? [My emphasis]

Yes they are, IF used by bad people.

6 Responses to DHS to buy 7000 full-auto assault rifles, calls them ‘personal defense weapons’

    I’ve no problem with banning assault rifles. Provided it’s global and especially, those in the hands of military and the like. Yes let’s get rid of bombs, landmines and weapons globally. But then, maybe I believe in santa claus?

    • A complex problem, or set of problems. Some general thoughts.
      Gun possession and use are realities which reach far and wide within our civilization.

      In regard to the general public, possession can be justified, not just because of the civil liberties aspect, but for self-defence reasons, vermin control and sporting activities. The negative side is the subsequent suicide, occasional psychotic killing spree and crime of passion. (Also keep in mind the almost certainty that much of the”psychotic” killing is instigated or staged by the authorities). In most communities, it can be reasonably argued that the balance is in favour of the freedom to own a gun, if only because the aforesaid deaths and injuries can be accomplished without guns and often are. They are just made a little easier and facilitate spur of the moment reactions.

      Regarding the criminal element, gun controls seem to have minimal effect on the ability to get a gun if your really want one. Enough said about that.
      Now we come to arming the militia. Unfortunately our evolution in technological development, in armaments in this particular case has far outstripped that in our intelligence and ability to escape from the animalistic survival instincts. In fact we seem to have evolved negatively in our greed and selfishness characteristics.

      So, not only do we have wars but we have blood-lust. [Added 1/2/2013 – if not actual blood-lust then a complete absence of compassion and respect for OTHER persons]. Not just in defending ourselves because there is always someone wanting other people’s possessions or land. This idea of defence has now gone to extremes with the US attacking and killing anybody that they deem to be a potential threat. An excuse sometimes only justified in their own mind, sometimes by subterfuge, false flag events and lies. A sad reflection on our civilization and supposed intelligence. A scenario bringing about the oft mentioned psychopath claim.
      As you say, peace, or effective disarmament in the world is currently as likely as a visit from Santa Claus.

      Back to the issues at hand. Civil wars seem to be as ‘popular’ as they have ever been. Usually because of differences in theological beliefs but sometimes for cultural or political reasons, all stupid from a logical point of view, but all serving as customers to the armament industry. Which BTW, is rivalled only by the drug (illicit and medical) industries in its enormity and corruption. Everyone, it seems needs guns.for one reason or another!
      But there hasn’t been a civil war in the US for a while. A bit of a skirmish when Prohibition created a significant criminal element, supported by much of the public, but comparatively a storm in a ‘booze’ cup. A bit more unrest with the black segregation in the US, settling to an uneasy truce after the assassination of Martin Luther King jnr. and some degree of respect and acceptance being introduced.
      Now however, we have a first time major issue. The US government is seriously and extensively arming civil services with assault weapons and ammunition. At the same time it is processing gun control measures intended to strip civilians of their weapons. WHY?

      What are we supposed to think about that? What the hell is actually going on?? I find it extremely difficult to even imagine the possibility of there being any intent to use them, that is a scenario one can only expect in a movie in a nightmare. Yet, there it is, no question about the reality of this arming taking place. Too many and too much to be only a deterrent.
      The general acceptance by the public of introducing gun controls, contrary to a civilized Constitutional Amendment supporting civil liberties, in fact strongly supported by the female population, is probably partly because the news of the government arming of the services is not widely known, yet.
      But we know, and we cannot understand it.

      The only explanation that seems logical is that there is going to be a civil war between the authorities and the people. Not brought on by the people unless they suddenly come to the realization that they and their country has been shafted by outside powers with the connivance of their own President, Congress and associated organizations. Unless they, the people, at last wake up to the deliberate inside setting up and cover up of the WTC 9/11 murders. Unless they also realize that they have been hoodwinked into supporting and funding, (with money and bodies), unnecessary overseas wars based on lies and fabrications.

      Based on the evidence, a civil war seems almost a certainty. (Note the independent prediction by a Russian ” Russian Expert Predicts Obama Will Declare Martial Law in America by End of 2012 “, obviously the date was “optimistic” but read the text).
      The very thought of this makes me feel sick in the stomach. But how can I possibly think of an alternative explanation which is of a sane and harmless nature. How can I possibly imagine that some good will come from all of this?

      Thanks for your comment Jamie, you are always welcome here. Peace!
