Looks like they found a use for some of those AR's

Some of us were wondering why Homeland Security was buying so many Ar's and ammo. Remember you never let a tragedy go to waste.
What do you think, is this their chance ?

The difference is theirs is selective fire, military grade weapons. Ours only go bang with each shot.

Probably a dumb question, but is an AR15 with select fire still an AR15?

Neither link leads to anything related to the original post. As such, we don't really know what we're discussing here.
