DHS Defends AR15 as a “Suitable Personal Defense Weapon”

I bet someone didn’t run the language by the Administration before publishing this:

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 action shall be capable of accepting all standard NATO STANAG 20 and 30 round M16 magazines (NSN 1005-00-921-5004) and Magpul 30 round PMAG (NSN 1005-01-576-5159).

Now that is interesting.

I mean, it’s common sense that they are highly effective weapons in such situations, but the interesting part is that DHS inadvertently admitted such. In a few short sentences, the US Department of Homeland Security has just neatly justified the use of AR15s–with 30 round magazines–for personal defense. And, at least arguably, they also advocated for burst/auto fire on said weapons.

I’m sure it was entirely intentional, and they were simply sticking up for the rights of gun owners.

    There is currently a requirement for a complete investigation into
    the background of this closet, un-American Muslim whom poses
    as the American President. Where did this Moron originate and
    whom are supporting him and his direct connection to George
    Soros, the ex-Nazi collaborator during World War Two in his native
    Hungary, and his continuous collaboration with the Muslim World,
    namely, his role in the Benghazi Affair, where 4 Americans lost
    their lives needlessly because this “COWARDLY LION,” failed
    to act responsibly to rescue the. A rescue attempt would have ensued the unraveling of this Moron’s gun-running caper to support the terrorist group, al Qaeda, our sworn enemies.
