I stumbled across this the other day. A few years back DHS issued a notice for bids on “personal defenive wepaons” for their staff/agents.
They bought 7,000 AR’s.
Can someone explain for us why when an AR is in the hands of police or federal agents it is deemed a “Personal Defensive Weapon” but in the hands of law abiding civilians it’s demonized as the dreaded “Assault Weapon”?
Pretty funny since it is LEO’s and Federal Agents that routinely use them on “assaults” where as for the public they are almost never used in such a manner.
