In Liberal World, only The Government should be afforded guns. Because that worked well in the Soviet Union and Nazi Germany...

(The Blaze) The Department of Homeland Security is seeking to acquire 7,000 5.56x45mm NATO “personal defense weapons”(PDW)— also known as “assault weapons” when owned by civilians. The solicitation, originally posted on June 7, 2012, comes to light as the Obama administration is calling for a ban on semi-automatic rifles and high capacity magazines.

Citing a General Service Administration (GSA) request for proposal (RFP), Steve McGough of RadioViceOnline.com reports that DHS is asking for the 7,000 “select-fire” firearms because they are “suitable for personal defense use in close quarters.” The term select-fire means the weapon can be both semi-automatic and automatic. Civilians are prohibited from obtaining these kinds of weapons.

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.”

Critics of such a ban on semi-automatic rifles are already arguing that the government is showing its hypocrisy by essentially saying they are good “personal defense” for them, but not for American citizens. When civilians own semi-automatic rifles, they somehow become “assault weapons.”

Like The Blaze writer Jason Howerton, I don’t have a problem with making sure DHS is properly armed to deal with whateverthehell it is they deal with nowadays. Probably people who fail to properly inflate their tires and look at Wooded Owls meanly. And lord knows that the government would never over-react and send in armed government employees. Let’s see, when terrorizing a small child. But, realistically, law enforcement at all levels does need proper weapons when they enter into a confined space.

Of course, this same government now wants to take the same right for personal protection away from citizens looking to protect themselves (along with hunting and shooting for fun) along with 30 round magazines...

Do as I say not as I do.

Just like Biden said a double barreled shotgun is all anyone needs, but yet I don't see his secret service security detail walking about with double barreled shotguns.
