    The double standard rules in action.

    A select fire AR15 for me but not even a semi-auto AR15 for thee. Oh, and they call a select fire AR15 a PDW, personal defense weapon. ( not an assault rifle) Use the PDW term in their solicitation order for the AR15s and the 30 round magazines they want to go with them.

    Now this is a fun and informative link to read. Thanks

    PDW is a catch phrase to indicate a weapon with a barrel length less than sixteen inches and a butt stock. This makes them an NFA item, subject to the same restrictions for CIVILIANS as a full auto weapon, an explosive device, or a “destructive” device.

    Of course, none of that applies to government agencies. Like the department of education. Seriously, the DOE has stuff like this.

    So, the AR-15 is a “personal defense” weapon in the hands of a DHS agent.

    And the AR-15 is an “assault” weapon in the hands of a citizen.

    Orwell is saying “I told you so.”

    Any weapon with ‘select fire’ is not an AR-15. An AR-15 is a civilian version of the M-16 (which has ‘select fire’} and by law cannot be able to be configured to fire automatically.

    The M4 is a carbine version of the M-16 rifle. The M4 has a shorter, 14.5″ barrel. Civilian versions of the M4 are AR-15 based, and have, with a fixed flash suppressor, 16 inch barrels. This is mandated by BATF.
