(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.
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.
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
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.
Read some language from the
contract bid: Pistol grips, full-auto and more
The scope of this contract is to provide a total of up to 7,000 5.56x45mm
North Atlantic Treaty Organization (NATO) personal defense weapons (PDW)
throughout the life of this contract to numerous Department of Homeland Security

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.
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
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
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?
