Skip to comments.If ‘Assault Weapons’ Are Bad…Why Does DHS Want to Buy 7,000 of Them for ‘Personal Defense’?
Posted on 01/27/2013 3:53:23 PM PST by mkmensinger
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.

Select fire is the operative term.
U.N. 'blue helmets' or Labor Union thugs?
For the same reason that the DHS bought 1.6 BBBillion rounds of ammo, enough to have kept US forces fighting in Iraq at the height of the fighting FOR 17 YEARS.
For the same reason Obama built a HUGE whacko bat-cave under the WH.
They need them to spray from the hip large numbers of bullets at Americans- Feinstein knows these weapons inside and out.
Wouldn’t it be nice if every firearms manufacturer in the US refused to sell firearms to the government?
I hope Obastard’s “bat cave” works out for him like Hitler’s bunker did.
The gubmint bought vast quantities of ammo right before something horrific would happen that would trigger huge public demand for ammo.. Almost as if the gubmint knew something big was going to happen that would affect the supply of ammo.
When the collapse comes, the Gov will need these to control the riots that break out.
The rifles are intended as BOXCAR EMBARKEMENT FACILITATORS:
Scared people might otherwise NOT board the boxcars to, uh....”go visit their relatives in the countryside...”
These are the new Schutz Staffel. They will be the ones coming to your door to take your weapons.
All the Sheriffs across the country can say they won't enforce an unconstitutional law all they want. The Civilian National Security Force are the new SS and there will be many more of them than the Sheriffs can muster.
Department of HOME-land security.
These weapons are not meant to be used against a foreign enemy, they are meant to be used here—in the United States.
They aren’t going to be used to defend our borders against illegals and they are not going to be used against drug dealers.
Partner: these weapons are going to be used against Americans, people like you and me who refuse to bend over and kiss the asses of the gun grabbers.Will they come for us ? damned right they will and they will be armed to the teeth.
Look for these to show up in the hands of Obama’s Brown Shirts.
I am not a conspiracy theorist, but if I were, and I saw what was happening, Billion of bullets being bought and machine gun, assault guns being bought by an agency that appeared after 911 and is now in the hands of a Muslim President, who is trying to take my weapons I would start being scared.
Of course I am sure there is a plausible explanation.
Exactly. The Homeland Security Gestapo wants all of the slaves disarmed because without firearms, there can be no real resistance. At the same time, the federal Gestapo is buying up ammo and arming itself to the teeth.
In the near future, the government is going to stage a mass shooting at a TSA checkpoint at an airport. They’ll use the same kind of stooge pumped full of mind control drugs that they used at Sandy Hook. After a TSA shooting, the clamoring for disarming the slaves will grow louder, as will the call to arm the TSA. Once they get that, you will be stopped in the shopping mall by some armed TSA stooge with a high school education, demanding to see your “papers.”
The Republic is dead. Welcome to slavery.
Right. These weapons are being purchased to threaten and use against Americans.
So much for drying up the supply..
Hey, can anyone explain to me how you can dry up the supply WITHOUT CONFISCATING them from innocent folks?
Karl Denninger expounds on this also:
The Declaration of Independence makes a point that the government derives its powers from the consent of the governed.
If I don't have a right to own a full-automatic weapon, I can't delegate that right to the government.
During the Korean campaign was issued and carried a “select fire” 30cal carbine. DHS probably was to show these as AR’s being sold at gun shows.
As long as the 2nd amendment is being challanged I remind FRs that;
Democrats and RINOS
GOD DENIERS AND CONGENITAL LIARS
ARE REDISTRIBUTE WEALTH INCITERS
FOR FIRST YOUR MONEY THEN YOUR GUNS
AND BE DEFENSELESS WHEN CROOKS COME
Is Obama MISLEADING anyone...? (17 seconds)
I think you can see that in fact he’s being pretty open, pretty honest about his horrible plans for America.
Why need he lie, when SO MANY people are willing themselves to NOT see it...?
He’s not lying.
Ok, how to file suit on precise legal grounds of “if they can have ‘em why can’t I?”
Look at the bright side. By giving these weapons to the DHS and the TSA, Theses weapons will be available to us without the need for a special and traceable FFL permit
This is the best news that can be discussed in the current atmosphere of egregious impeachable offenses by Barack Hussein Obama and "his" military. Let's step back and consider...
The U.S. military in all its forms are Constitutionally forbidden to operate within the United States. This has never been disputed as long as I have been alive.
Civilian law enforcement nationwide universally does not use F16, tanks, antitank weapons, machine guns, artillery, mortars, Predator UAVs or Aircraft carriers, the sort of military equipment Barack and Diane Feinswine love to absurdly claim that the NRA and the redneck American "gun culture" want to own. Never mind that none, ZERO mass killings have been perpetrated by legal NRA gun owners, certainly, none with 50mm machine guns or 20mm canon.
This underscores the correct and reasonable expectation and assertion that American citizens ARE absolutely entitled to exercise their right to keep and bear arms used BY EVERY LAW ENFORCEMENT WHICH IS NOT A PART OF THE NATIONAL ARMED FORCES OR THE NATIONAL GUARD, without exception; without taxing ammunition beyond the means of the ordinary citizen; without draconian ownership and transfer "fees" that are intended to make ownership by ordinary citizens impossible. The power to tax is the power to destroy.
"...shall not be infringed means SHALL NOT BE INFRINGED."
Perhaps the federal HHS failed "Headstart" program should be redirected to members of Congress (both houses) to learn to comprehend simple English words.
Alternatively, they can cease unconstitutional activity immediately and do the right thing, and repeal the Second Amendment.
Good luck with that.
also known as assault weapons when owned by civilians.
But that DHS is asking for the 7,000 select-fire firearms
and Civilians are prohibited from obtaining these kinds of weapons.
“The U.S. military in all its forms are Constitutionally forbidden to operate within the United States. This has never been disputed as long as I have been alive.”
A salient point.
All arms used within the USA against its own people for any purpose whatsoever (law enforcement included) should be permitted (nay, there is an absolute right to) to all people not individually adjudicated dangerous. Any arms too dangerous to permit the people are too dangerous to permit the government to use within our borders.
An interesting point for not just resisting a new AWB, but going farther in overturning 922(o) and perhaps even NFA.
To assault law abiding citizens.
One decently aimed shot = 1 select-fire weapon out of government thug hands, and into the hands of a patriot.
Rinse & repeat 7,000 times.
Big Gun Control meeting at the White Hut today. Holder and Big Sis will be attending.
