Personal Defense Weapons

Why are they called personal defense weapons when the government buys them, but assault weapons when I buy them?
The Department of Homeland Security is seeking to acquire 7,000 5.56x45mm NATO "personal defense weapons" (PDW) — also known as “assault weapons” when owned by civilians.

Citing a General Service Administration (GSA) request for proposal (RFP), Steve McGough of reports that DHS is asking for the 7,000 "select-fire" firearms because they are "suitable for personal defense use in close quarters." The term select-fire means the weapon can be both semi-automatic and automatic. Civilians are prohibited from obtaining these kinds of weapons.
The civilian version is NOT select-fire, they are semi-automatic only. So the rip-roaring full auto version is a "personal defense weapon" in the hands of the government but the tamer semi-auto version, in the hands of a civilian, is an "assault rifle".

The fact of the matter is the Obama administration, the progressives in power, want to disarm the American public. That is their goal and the reason has NOTHING to do with children. They don't care about your kids, they don't care about you. They are engineering a complete transformation of the United States which includes a new constitution - they probably have a working copy if not a completed version - and are getting to the point where there will be strong resistance from the populace. They don't want anyone shooting back.
