Feds Buying 7,000 Assault Rifles

Posted by Steve Markowitz on January 27, 2013

While President Obama and his liberal allies including Sen. Dianne Feinstein attempt to outlaw so-called “assault rifles” from ordinary citizens, they are purchasing even more dangerous versions for the government.  On June 7, 2012 the Department of Homeland Security posted a solicitation for the purchase of 7,000 of the weapons capable of firing 5.56x 45mm rounds.  Unlike the so-called “assault rifles” the government would ban for civilians, these 7,000 weapons will be fully automatic.

Adding to the governmental hypocrisy, the buying service, General Service Administration (GSA) doesn’t even call the weapons they are purchasing “assault rifles”.  Instead, they refer to them as “Personal Defense Weapons” (PDW) and further state that they are “suitable for personal defense use in close quarters.”  Let’s see; governmental officials require these weapons for personal defense but ordinary civilians do not.  What a perversion of Second Amendment to the Constitution.
