DHS Buys 7000 assault rifles

See also

If the DHS buying 1.6 billion bullets, mostly jacketed hollow points (JHP), didn't scare the hell out of you this might. It's a bid by DHS to purchase 7000 select fire (read: automatic) AR-15 rifles. If you look at the specifications, the government is requiring them to be select fire meaning there's 3 options not 2 like on normal AR-15's you buy in the store. These have safe, semi, and auto options. They also must take 20 and 30 rounds magazines, have rails to put accessories, and a fixed pistol grip and durable vertical grip. The latter to are both deemed 'military features'.

"DHS and 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."

Really? But I thought our supreme leader said that AR-15's and AK-47's shouldn't be on the streets of America? I thought nobody needed an assault rifle for personal defense? What's the concealment part about? Is there a secret homeland police now?

For some reason I keep thinking of the word hypocrite. No idea why. It makes perfect sense that a government would station it's troops inside their own nation to patrol. It's normal for the government to be conducting urban warfare drills in major cities. It's normal to buy 1.6 billion rounds of ammo and 7000 automatic rifles all the while calling for the public to turn in their inferior weapons. It's normal for the National Guard to be buying equipment and cutting staff. It's normal for drones to be patrolling American skies and peeking in your window. It's proactive policing, you want to be safe right?

I just don't know what else to say anymore. Trust your eyes not your ears. Look at the facts. The ammo buys, the gun buys, the increase in military spending, inflation, food crisis, etc. They're prepping, are you?
