Hypocrisy much? Heck, folks…after you about read this story you’re going to see nothing but blatant hypocrisy in spades…it’s plain to see as the nose on your face is! Of course it wouldn’t be for leftist-loons, but that’s a given anyway.

Nevertheless, read this and see what you think. Make sure you read this in full here if you’d like some more important information that pertains to the subject, there are great links highlighted included:

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.”

Republican New York state Sen. Greg Ball also issued a press release this week bringing attention to the weapons purchase request.

Calls made to DHS seeking information regarding whether or not the RFP was accepted and fulfilled were not immediately returned on Saturday.

Sen. Diane Feinstein (D-Calif.) on Thursday introduced legislation that would enact a so-called “assault weapons” ban. The bill would ban more than 150 firearms and limit magazines to 10 rounds. There is no expiration date on Feinstein’s bill.

Get all the details on the bill, including a list of firearms that would be banned, here.

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.”

That being said, it is reasonable for the Department of Homeland Security to request these rifles as they are indeed effective personal defense weapons. The agency is tasked with keeping Americans safe from those who wish to do the country harm, and its officials should be equipped with all the tools they need to do so effectively.

But what about Americans who want to keep themselves and their families safe from threats? Is a semi-automatic rifle unacceptable for a civilian’s “personal defense” in his or her home? According to some Democratic lawmakers, like Sen. Feinstein, it appears the answer is yes.

Just last week two students in Rochester, N.Y. scared off a pair of home intruders by simply brandishing an AR-15 semi-automatic rifle. One of the students said he believes the weapon saved their lives.

So friends, what do you think about all of this? We all know the mainstream media has been silent about this and will continue to be…as usual!

    • My favorite is this New York Times article: “Fatal Confusion in a Nassau Town” (http://www.nytimes.com/2011/03.....&_r=0) in which a cop carrying a mere “rifle” is blasted by another cop. Googling found that this “rifle” was actually a “a black M4 assault rifle on a sling under his right arm, the barrel pointed at the ground.”

      Kind of like how the Glock went from ‘that awful airport X-Ray avoiding nefarious plastic assault weapon’ to a ‘high capacity law enforcement tool ideal for use in urban environments.’

    The more I read stuff like this, the more I’m persuaded that our federal government has something big and ugly prepared for us. Aside from the obvious hypocrisy of the DHS, WE ought to be the ones asking THEM why they had recently purchased so much ammunition, and why they feel the need to have so many ‘assault’ rifles? What do they have planned for us? Do they realize that Dear Leader’s utopian scheme for America will not be swallowed by a large percentage of its citizens?

    Get prepared folks!

  4. BIG SIS has Obama’s orders to get tactical gear for the civilian revolt that is coming.
    This will be for Obama’s Swat Teams. They already have the armored tactical trucks, and the new FEMA Camps constructed for civilian prisoners!
    Now they need AR-15 machine guns to use on the rebelling citizens of the USA.

    • The week of the Aurora, CO theater shootings, Cabelas was advertising on WLS-AM “tactical gear” for the ordinary person. Cabelas is not a cop shop as it is geared for the ordinary civilian gun owner. They ceased that ad after the shooting… which means that every level of American society is preparing for The Great and Powerful Obama’s final chess move.

    I don’t remember who said it, so I can’t give credit. But it went something like this: The best thing the government could do today is build a 200 capacity gallows in DC. They’re gonna get used one way or the other before very long.

  13. 235 die in a night club fire over the weekend… not a peep from government about banning night clubs.. hmmmmmm

    Cameras are used for child porn.. guess we need to ban cameras too.. where is the outrage from the left about this?

    thousands of people die from car accidents every month.. are we going to call for a ban of cars too?

    Heart disease kills more people than guns every year.. is it time to ban fast food?

    MILLIONS of babies are killed/aborted every year by liberals.. is it time to ban liberalism? LOL and the Dems scream with phoney outrage about guns killing children while voting yes to ripping babies apart in the womb

    Why is no one asking. with all the things that are killing us why is THIS government focused on guns? What kind of government would desire to disarm its citizens? Only the sheeple ( Obama voters ) cant see this…

    That bull dyke Janet can kiss my all American ass.. she already called me and my fellow vets potential terrorist on returning from Iraq/Afghanistan.. marxist bitch/bastard ( I cant tell ) can drop dead

    • LMAO…

      Like you say here, those that commented have more common sense than the writer or the leftist-loons that contributed to the story.

      Thanks for the amusement…because that’s exactly what this is.
