Assault Weapons are bad mmmkay …. but Janet Napolitano DHS buys 7,000 for ‘personal defense’
Americans are having their 2nd Amendment rights taken away by Obama. Assault Weapons are supposed to be bad, and evil, you know kind of like profit. Yet, Janet Napolitano DHS is trying to purchase .56x45mm NATO “personal defense weapons” (PDW), better known as assault weapons for us peasants. Why doew the DHS want these weapons? Because they are “suitable for personal defense use in close quarters.” Wait, aren’t these weapons bad or something unless they are in the hands of the military?
The RFP describes the firearm as “Personal Defense Weapon (PDW) – 5.56x45mm NATO, select-fire firearm suitable for personal defense use in close quarters and/or when maximum concealment is required.” Additionally, DHS is asking for 30 round magazines that “have a capacity to hold thirty (30) 5.56x45mm NATO rounds.”
Just another fine example of government hypocrisy.
