NASA Orders Assault Rifles – Are the Aliens About To Invade?

Clearly, the question regarding aliens is merely a tongue-in-cheek reference to science fiction, but the cold, hard fact is that NASA made the request on the Federal Business Online website for five AR-15 rifles. The AR stands for Armalite Rifles, not assault rifles, but in the atmosphere of gun control hype – facts are frequently ignored by the media.

The requests outlined the specifics:

  • Caliber: .223/5.56 X 45 mm NATO
  • Barrel: Free Floated 16″ Double Lapped, Chrome LinedChrome Moly Vanadium MIL-B-11595-E, Threaded 1/2×28
  • Rifling Twist: RH 1:7″
  • Muzzle Device: Flash Suppressor
  • Front Sight Base: Gas Block with Picatinny Rail Top of gas block is .293 (+/-) lower than top of upper receiver
  • Upper Receiver: Forged Flattop with Picatinny Rail & Laser Engraved Rail Numbering, 7075-T6 Aluminum w/ 6″ Hand-guard
  • Lower Receiver: 7075-T6 Aluminum (forged)
  • Trigger: Tactical Two Stage, 1st Stage 3.5 lbs – 2nd Stage Approximately 5-6 lbs
  • Overall Length: 35.25″ with stock extended, Approximately 32″ collapsed
  • Weight: 6.6 lbs
  • Finish: Anodized Aluminum Upper/Lower Receiver, Manganese Phosphated Steel Barrel
  • Accuracy: 1.5 MOA
  • Included with Rifle: One 30 Round Magazine, Sling, Black Case, ARMS 71 flip up sights(EX1408), Owner’s Manual, Limited Lifetime Warranty

It seems that even rocket scientists know a good firearm when they see it. Too bad too many politicians don’t want you to have them. Plus, why do they need a 30 round clip? According to our lawmakers, 10 rounds should be more than enough.

And if the history is any evidence of the future – expect an ungodly amount of ammunition to be purchased – thus draining the supply from the average gun owner.

This is no mpre than what tens of thousands of your police officers have access to.
The NASA has private conractors and on dome areas military police protection.
THIS MAY be a round about way to arm the security group protecting inner sanctuary and certain civilian officers.
MOST LIKELY A COLT ,military supply not civilian colt firm, or Lewis Machine Works.

So should I move my current defense status to defcon 3, 2 or 1? I'm not sure.

Or are they stocking up like the army did with AKs because they know the prez is about to outlaw ARs.

Should I be worried about NASA SWATing my house the next time my neighbor accuses me of collecting moon rocks?

Dunno there!! NASA ordering 5 ARs more seems like an awful lot of weapons for an agency that is 60% civilian but military nonetheless. Don't know if I see what's newsworthy here!! It's like a soup kitchen asking for 5 more loaves of bread in addition to the thousands they order everyday!!

The "average" gun owner already has their ammo. duh. Their supply won't be drained.

You mean the "intelligent" gun owner. Heck, I started buying heavy in the 1980's and have not stopped yet!

the museum...but they didn't check me on the way out in case I'd lifted a rocket in my pants.

It is interesting that NASA would be purchasing firearms directly rather than its hired contracted security personnel/agency.

As to the contradiction, the best analogy would be the game of Chess is written by those in charge, and the authority plays one side while the other is played by the populace. The authority already nullified/severely limits access of the populace's Queen, Rooks, and Bishops (Air Power, Automatics, and Tanks), and it is making maneuvers to remove counter-suppressive mechanisms aka the Knight from the equation.

To my understanding, suppressive fire does two things; it quickly halts an advance and preferably forces the opponent to get pinned down enabling the suppressing force to flank and seize/eliminate the suppressed opposition.

While I realize many will reference, the many ways the Second Amendment is respectively out-dated and effectively meaningless due to the lack of or limitation of access to the Queen, Rooks, and Bishops, it begs the question. Why is Collectivists then so bent on removing and limiting counter-suppressive capacities? Why bother removing or limiting counter-suppressive capacities at all?

There's only two scenarios:
1). The authority side of the equation desires and wants to limit contestable resistance to allocate those chief advantages elsewhere. Per say, engaged with Syrian-Iranian-Pakistani-North Korean-Russo-Sino forces, which not only requires an obedient populace but one that can be sent to the front one way or another.
2). The authority side wants to limit contestable opposition without also losing its place in global balance of power, which certainly would explain why protests, civil disobedience, Constitutionalists, Libertarians, and etc are essentially being demonized, harassed, intimidated, and etc. It would also explain why such activities are considered potential terrorist activity by those on the authority side of the board.

If nothing else, it's food for thought.
