DHS Solicitation for Personal Defense Weapons

Right from the horse's mouth Select-fire 5.56x45 rifles are "personal defense weapons", NOT "assault weapons"!

Personal Defense Weapons Solicitation

Solicitation Number: HSCEMS-12-R-00011
Agency: Department of Homeland Security
Office: Immigration & Customs Enforcement
Location: ICE-OAQ-MS
Added: Jun 07, 2012 11:47 am
This announcement is being placed in accordance with the Federal Acquisition Regulation (FAR) paragraph 5.207. It is a combined synopsis/solicitation for commercial items. 5.56x45mm NATO, select-fire firearm suitable for personal defense. This announcement constitutes the only solicitation and proposals are being requested. See attachments for complete details.
OK. So the Department of Homeland Security has come out telling us that the standard "commercial" M16 or M4 select-fire weapon is for "personal defense", not shooting masses of innocents.

When can I expect to find such items for sale over the counter at Wal-Mart?
