He just bought a new AK-47. He told me they can use their personal weapons while on duty. He had the thing all tricked out including a scope, vented hand guard and bipod. 22's won't cut it against that thing. [/quote] It is all about the skill of the operator, and a little luck. [/quote]

They call them assault weapons when the peasants have them. and of course the dhs weapons have automatic fire capability.
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.
