Civilians Have Assault Rifles, Potential Oppressors Get Personal Defense Weapons

01.28.13 10:01 PM

The seventh commandment of the animals in Animal Farm, George Orwell’s critique of communism, reads as follows after the powerful pigs begin abusing the trust of the other creatures: “All animals are equal, but some animals are more equal than others.” It seems the Federal government follows logic similar to that of Orwell’s pigs.

Many anti-gun politicians and members of the media have continuously asked why any American needs a semi-automatic assault rifle that is capable of holding more than 10 rounds of ammunition. And people interested in protecting the 2nd Amendment have answered time and again that the guns offer American citizens valuable personal protection from threats to life, liberty and property.

The Department of Homeland Security, it seems, agrees that these rifles are valuable defense weapons. Last year, the Department issued a request for proposal for 7,000 5.56x45mm select-fire NATO “personal defense weapons” (PDW). The request states: “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.”

The DHS “personal defense weapons” come with a full automatic function already unavailable to members of the general public who do not have Class 3 registration. But, beyond that, the 5.56x45mm select-fire NATO weapons designated for “personal defense” of government agents are an identical twin to the AR-15, .223-firing “assault rifle” that many Americans keep for home protection.

By a simple twist of words, “personal defense” in the hands of agents of the State becomes a potential manner of “assault” in the hands of the civilian.

It is no surprised that DHS is looking for 7,000 new assault rifles to arm border patrol and law enforcement officers, given the massive ammo buys it also made last year. It is estimated that the Department has 216,000 employees, 135,000 of whom carry firearms; and there are reports that the latter number could grow as more bureaucratic employees of the organization begin carrying weapons.
