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
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:
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
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
rifles” (plus lots more in other bids), they are trying to completely disarm the
American citizenry through new gun registration and confiscation
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
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
A full-auto-capable rifle in the hands of a DHS agent is called a
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
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
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
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?
