"The behemoth Department of Homeland Security (DHS) is seeking up to 7,000 select fire (meaning that they are capable of both semi-automatic and automatic fire) 5.56x45mm North Atlantic Treaty Organization (NATO) personal defense weapons (PDWs) on top of the hundreds of millions of hollow point rounds they recently acquired."

I dunno, but they have a lot of guys who use guns. And they're like any other mechanical device. They wear out.

Not that I don't expect this topic to be viewed any less stupidly then the DHS ammo purchase one (despite my vain attempts to educate people about what IDIQ means).

ETA: If you want to find out how many they've already bought, start searching the contract award listings. They should be in there.

Me thinks those guns won't be intended for non-citizens mostly. Their intended enemy isn't foreigners. They've proven that time again whenever you fly. DHS is making air travel a touching experience...

Most DHS employees have never touched, let alone qualified, with a long gun. Some places dont even have them in their armory.
New agency needs to build its armories. Having two shotguns to qualifiy hundreds of people a year sucks.

Most of their employees won't receive a rifle either, so it balances out.

Any time a contract like this is secured for a large number of guns, there are more than one three letter agency can dip into it. They end up with the bulk of them (usually), but some guns will go here and there.

Math Fail in the article
Furthermore, they state that every firearm will be tested with a whopping 4,000 rounds, meaning that 28,000 rounds will be spent just testing the firearms before they are put into service.

And just like the ammunition purchase, this is a group purchase for all of the DHS agencies.

Yup...when the government buys them, they are PDW's....personal defense weapons.

When we buy them...they are assault weapons.


PDWs are a sub classification.
It's not a war on drugs, it's a war on personal freedom is what it is ok. Keep that in mind at all times.

Law enforcement buying guns?

Wow - that is shocking news, OP.

Between the USCG and the USBP (both under DHS), this isn't a big number. UP TO 7,000 (but likely fewer, or that 7k stretched out over a few years) isn't that big of a deal.

Meanwhile, the paranoid types on here will bitch about this (these are gonna be used on citizens!!1!), and in another thread bitch about "why aren't we securing the border!!!1! Give the BP the equipment they need!"
