Homeland Security Wants 7,000 AR-15s For “Personal Defense”

Just last Saturday, 7 people were murdered in Chicago, the gun control capital of the U.S. If we could just get rid of all the guns, people wouldn’t be able to shoot kill others. It is true that if we were to truly get rid of all the guns, people wouldn’t be able to shoot others. But they would just find other means of killing, something that people like Piers Morgan find completely irrelevant. The truth is, guns aren’t going anywhere as long as we have a government who demands them for themselves. While the feds are busy trying to find ways to ban semi-automatic weapons for civilian use, they’ve been buying them for themselves. New York State Senator Greg Hall, a Republican, issued a press release last week bringing this issue to light:

 “The Department of Homeland Security is the latest to find Governor Cuomo’s anti-Second Amendment agenda is at odds with reality. A report by Steve McGough of RadioViceOnline.com cites a General Service Administration (GSA) request for proposal (RFP) on behalf of the Department of Homeland Security and member components such as Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) seeking over 7,000 AR-15’s and matching 30 round clips.”

 So, what’s the feds’ excuse? Well, these AR-15s are for “personal defense,” particularly for “use in close quarters.” Apparently, they’re really good for that. So, why can’t American “civilians” have them for personal defense use in close quarters as well? Because although all people are equal, some are more equal than others.

When Dianne Feinstein was young, she carried a gun. But now she wants to ban the sale, transfer, importation, or manufacture of "120 specifically-named firearms, certain other semiautomatic rifles, handguns, shotguns that can accept a detachable magazine and have one military characteristic, and semiautomatic rifles and handguns with a fixed magazine that can accept more than 10 rounds."

This only applies to us commoners though. Government officials are officially exempt, and criminals don’t care about laws. So under Feinstein’s proposed gun ban, weapons would be effectively transferred from law-abiding citizens to either criminals or government agents, but “at this point,” to quote the sanctimonious Secretary of State,

“What difference does it make?”

Homeland Security continues to buy up all the ammo and guns while demonizing gun owners. They’ve already declared protests to be forms of low-level terrorism. So all those people marching in protest against gun control measures were committing low-level acts of terrorism according to DHS. But what about all those people protesting in favor of gun control? Those are just people exercising their 1st Amendment rights.

    An AR15, or M16, is not a weapon for close quarters for a lot of reasons. What the military calls close quarters is not the kind of close quarters a civilian might find himself into in his home. The round used in these weapons is meant for battle. They are basically medium to long-range calibers, but try to tell that to the ignorant and you run up agains a wall.

    jpfo.org film entitled "Innocents Betrayed" shows what happens to civilians once their governments take away their right to bear arms.
    Not here. Not never. Got that Feinstein ???

  • Badshot46

    The anti-gunners are clueless. What do they think is protecting them and allowing them to protest? If the 2nd fails, so will the Right to Assembly, Freedom of Speech and Religion.

    You guys just don't quite "Get It"

    When are we going to quit sabre-rattling about the constitution & some-sort of "Constitutional Rights"??!!

    Please, What is frickin' Wrong with you Americans???!!!!

    Are you so numbed & dumbed down & uneducated???!!

    Can you NOT see that the Elite are doing no more & certainly no less than that which previous monomaniacal elites who also thumbed their disinterested noses at the people & which precipitated the Peasant insurrection of "Qu'ils mangent de la brioche".

    Let them Eat Cake......the gauntlet has been thrown down already, there is no reasonable person left to reason with nor to assert your Rights & Liberties to as an appeal.

    Re: All these statements about " Second Amendment rights."

    idiots desinteresses!! Seriously??

    As one of the finest Presidents your Country ever had stated oh so eloquently:

    "..And yet the same revolutionary beliefs for which our forebears fought
    are still at issue around the globe—the belief that the rights of man
    come not from the generosity of the state, but from the hand of God."

    "Our Rights" are not some how oddly secured by the Paper of a Constitution...When in fact the Constitution merely enumerated SOME of the UN-A-Lien-Able G*D Given & Granted Rights, Liberties & noble pursuits that GOV'T was not to impede or trample upon.

    (Please research what a "Lien" is & then start using the Word Properly & correctly: Clue It's NOT "Un-Alien-able").

    The Constitution was instituted as a STOP or a clearly keenly outlined document specifically limiting the powers that the Gov't could wield or assume.

    "We the people" Breathed into the creation of Gov't & imbued it with certain rights & powers that "We the People" still yet retain!!

    No Rights are derived from a Document....it is abject ignorance & imbecility that would regards this matter as such.

    Example: If I have a progeny, a creation of my wife & I's: A Son or a Daughter.

    And I "Give" them the right to "Drive" My Vehicle. They can Drive it however they can never claim to hold Title or a LIEN on it as an "Owner". I retain that right to drive it AND I still OWN the vehicle. It is only despotic satanic hubris that wold cause my creation-progeny to usurp my authority and lay CLAIM to the ownership of my Vehicle and the right I conferred to them to Drive it. It would also be a thimbrelig for them to some-how defraud me of my right, the title of ownership to my vehicle & then turn-around & subjugate ME to their control, whims, dictates, & desires.

    THIS very thing is what the American "Public" has not only allowed & NOT vigorously fought against (They fear SLAPPING their Children even in Public!!) but also they have, with abject insanity, co-dependently fostered & encouraged upon themselves!!

    The Constitution does NOT "Guarantee" We the People anything. It is a Document that sets limits on a Collective group of people that would set about to rule...& since Power corrupts & absolute power corrupts absolutely, it was inherently designed to limit the tendency for despotism....not grant or guarantee or give any single person "rights".

    Americans KEEP Playing this "Game" with their own founding documents & lack the holy perspective to stem the tide of tyranny because of it.

    Americans are haughty & froward without any humility but plenty of hubris.

    But then again??...It was American Churchianity-inanity that has sought to destroy the Law of G*D as not being relevant nor staid nor to be ever properly inculcated, venerated, & esteemed.

    Well, there you have it America!! You've denied & trampled upon the ever-lasting Holy Law of G*D (The Creation in tyrannical rebellion against their Creator) and now you are being trampled in like fashion by YOUR "creation": Gov't.

    The Little head of the Fed (Much like on any un-ennobled crass-pursuing man) is clearly ruling over & causing madness to replace logical, noble thought and perspective.

    Your "Appetite" for the profane has merely fattened you for the slaughter.

    I submit a read-up or study on this "Little Head", "Little Horn" & the aspects of the Hypothalamus (Size of a thumb-nail nestled in the midst of the Brain & what it controls & urges men to do) in relation to the Thalamus Superior (AKA: Frontal Lobe) along with the "Little Head" below the belt and the troubles it causes when it "Controls" juxtaposed to what the little head in Washington DC is doing to the rest of the Country that USED TO BE a Lighted City upon a Hill.

    It is all an abject object lesson of what, when not properly submitted in the manner that it should all be, happens when things get turned up-side down & people call Good "evil", Light "darkness" and then embark upon an enthronement of "SELF" as the god of their pursuits & life.

    Americans have given themselves over to their lusts & hubris....rejecting G*D & his Laws & ways & now nothing remains except for judgement upon the land.

    Hosea 4:
    "Hear the word of the Lord, ye children of Israel, for the Lord shall
    enter into judgment with the inhabitants of the land: for there is no
    truth, and there is no mercy, and there is no knowledge of God in the
    land. Cursing, and lying, and killing, and theft, and adultery have overflowed, and blood hath touched blood.

    Therefore shall the land mourn, and every one that dwelleth in it shall
    languish with the beasts of the field, and with the fowls of the air:
    yea, the fishes of the sea also shall be gathered together. But yet let not any man judge: and let not a man be rebuked: for thy people are as they that contradict the priest. And thou shalt fall to day, and the prophet also shall fall with thee: in the night I have made thy mother to be silent. My people have been silent, because they had no knowledge: because thou hast rejected knowledge, I will reject thee, that thou shalt not do the
    office of priesthood to me: and thou hast forgotten the law of thy God, I also will forget thy children. According to the multitude of them so have they sinned against me: I will change their glory into shame. They shall eat the sins of my people, and shall lift up their souls to their iniquity. And there shall be like people like priest: and I will visit their ways upon them, and I will repay them their devices. And they shall eat and shall not be filled: they have committed fornication, and have not ceased: because they have forsaken the Lord in not observing his law. Fornication, and wine, and drunkenness take away the understanding. My people have consulted their stocks, and their staff hath declared
    unto them: for the spirit of fornication hath deceived them, and they
    have committed fornication against their God."

    Oh, I Know You Joel Olsteen Types will offer "But that is the OLD Testament, it was done away with!!".

    Yeah, So Learned yous Americans are.... I see how your new Churchianity replacement theology is working for yous.

    Merde!!..Unbelievable.

    Do away with G*D, His Law, His Bleu-Print for Living...

    Yeah, I see: How's it all working for yous now??!!

    Keep parroting your "Constitutional Rights"....while denying G*D in even this momentous battle of who rules whom.

    Well, maybe. More likely the Stasse is buying M-16 or select-fire semi/full auto versions. Which is good. The Citizen's Militia can shoot the gummint storm troopers that don't defect, and use their assualt rifles and high-capacity mags. What the moron bureaurats running the gummint don't know (apparently) is that if THEY have these weapons, WE'LL have them, too--off the corpses of the tyrants.

  • Confused

    FYI. I wrote letters to my Congressman and to both Senators. My Congressman replied. My Senators did not. Why? My Congressman just got elected. My Senators have been reelected several times. A valid reason for term limits. BTW, both of my Senators are Republicans..

  • The Brigadier

    Remember if the revolution breaks out, the poor bastards at DHS are the ones the Feds expect to be on the front lines. Many of them are ex-military and a significant percentage of them are also ex-cops. They will be a formidable force, but they are outnumbered by at least 15 to 1 and at least half of the people against them are also ex military and asignificant number of those are combat veterans.

    The main weapons for DHS agents are AR-15s and M4s, and their standard sidearms are .40 SW. We all heard how they bought several billion rounds of .223 and .40 SW in late 2010 and then again in 2011. Seven thousand new weapons are not a lot for the numbers of agents they have. My suggestion for all of you in the great Homeland, keep training. Do your PT and start stepping it up. Eat right, stop smoking, walk at least 2 to 3 miles a day to take off a lot of weight and when you have lost enough weight off of your joints, start jogging a mile or two daily also. Work your way up to 15k running and walking. You better bet DHS and other federal agencies are doing this.

    Practice your infantry tactics, and those of you who are ex SOCOM soldiers, you need to start training some of your ex-military brethren with crash courses in some of your advanced training. Small group infiltration and small group evasion should be first on the list. Above all keep up your shooting training and make sure weapons are in good order and you each have at least ten thousand rounds of high grade ammo for each of your primary weapons. If you do all of this you can deal with DHS or any of the other alphabet agencies fairly handily. Do not take DHS lightly. They are training and their ordnance is first rate. I know at least 60 million of you in the Heartland are similarly training and you are also suitably accoutred, but the remaining 30 million of you are fat, grossly out of shape or your training is poor or non-existent. What are you waiting for? The excrement is flying in the air towards that giant fan right now. Get to it people! We have a nation to save!

    • IRONSIDE

      I agree with everything you say, Sir. I'm working on the ammo supply and otherwise hope to make each shot count. I have to raise my hand on the fat and grossly out of shape, but I don't think I'll be doing any running from my wheelchair. That means lose weight and build up my upper body strength. I say publicy that if it comes down to someone to man a foxhole while others get away, sign me up. I already know that statistically, I should be one of the first casualties, but I'm hoping my future root cellar in Oklahoma will give some advantages, but like I said, depending on how it goes down, you've got one volunteer to stay behind and create as much havoc as I can so the resistance can move forward.

      • The Brigadier

        I appreciate your condition Ironside. Do what you can and we welcome everybody who will help us restore the Constitution and the rule of law and not this Godless fascism that is being forced on us from every front. Start losing the weight and building up what you can. I know guys who lost their legs in combat who are combat martial artists and you don't want to fight them if you don't have to. Get to it! Time is flying.

        • IRONSIDE

          I will and I am, Sir. I started fighting this battle from the hospital bed 21 years ago in order to get an education I knew I needed to provide for my family. No way was I going to lay around on disability when I did not need to. I'm 57 now but each day I feel like giving up I think of my Dad, 9th Army, 102nd Infantry (Ozarks) Division, 137th Combat Engineer, Headqtrs and Service Company and think about all he went through between 22 and 24 building bridges and roads to get us to the Elbe, just so we could watch the Nazi's stream across giving up to the USA instead of the Russkies Roosevent agreed could take Berlin. When I think what he accomplished (and never knew of his Bronze Star until he died at 59 in his sleep) I use it as a motivator. When I need extra motivation, I think of the freezing winter at Valley Forge and quickly realize how bad I DON"T have it. Now it's my turn in a way I never thought would happen, so consider me present and accounted for. Speaking with Patriots like yourself and other on here has also given me drive that my wife thinks I'm nuts. I love my wife, but I love my Country and it's Constitution more (including the Declaration) as without being lucky enough to be born an American, I could have already been thrown in a heap somewhere. And finally, I whole-heartedly believe that God does not give us more than we can handle. No one said it was easy and it hasn't been, but by God, I've made it this far and am too damn bullheaded to ever give up. Thank you, Sir.

    remember when obama talked about setting up another military force just for use on american soil to be trained and armed just as well or better then the us military. this is proof that he is doing it right under our noses. the epa, fda, and several other government agencies have also been doing this. this is for nothing other then coming after we the people to take control of our country away from us and to stop any type of revolution or resistance. they know that the patriots of our military will not turn their guns against their country, family, friends and themselves. this is why we are arming the muslim brotherhood and supporting other terrorist groups to take over all the middle eastern countries, to start a war most likely in israel but not unlimited to western europe. this will send our troops and resources overseas far away from home. along with terrorist joining with mexican drug cartels, street gangs and sleeper cells here in america. iran, russia and china setting up military bases, weapons and training to leftist central and south american countries that hate america. we are in serious trouble and should stand up now before they can get their plans completed if it's not already too late. it's our right, it's our duty to remove and replace any government that is no longer working for we the people.
