People need to keep in mind that the DHS also now includes the US Coast Guard. The USCG needs those weapons for drug interdiction, combating piracy etc etc.
I truly think they are not intended for use against Citizens.
Personal Defense Weapons fill a niche. They’re a compact weapon that packs a bigger punch than a pistol, especially in close quarters situations (clearing rooms, the back of a crowded APC, etc).
DHS is asking for the 7,000 “select-fire” firearms because they are “suitable for personal defense use in close quarters.”

I am a huge fan of the 2nd Amendment. But I am going to take a logic stance on this one.
If the Military has rocket launchers should the citizens have them also?
If the military has M320 grenade launchers should the Citizens have them also?
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.
