Who can't?  When I was in the Army, I was trained in all those things with the exception of "perimeter defense systems" because I'm not sure what you mean by that.  They had plenty of that stuff and I never heard anyone lamenting how hard they were to buy.

So the government can buy as many as they want as fast as they are made.

News on Dianne Feinstein's gun-rights abolishment crusade. She has teamed up with a phalanx of knee-jerk Democrat Senators bent on getting firearms out of the hands of law-abiding citizens;

Chuck Schumer (D-N.Y.), Dick Durbin (D-Ill.),  Patrick Leahy (D-Vt.), Al Franken (D-Minn.), Elizabeth Warren (D-Mass.),  Bernie Sanders (I-Vt.), Maria Cantwell (D-Wash.), Sherrod Brown (D-Ohio), Tammy Duckworth (D-Ill.), Tim Kaine (D-Va.), et al.



Automatic Gun Fire Prevention Act

"Semi-automatic rifles typically have a rate of fire between 45 and 60 rounds per minute. A bump stock, or other similar device increases the semi-automatic rifle's rate of fire between 400 and 800 rounds per minute."

"This bill would ban the sale, transfer, importation, manufacture or possession of bump stocks, trigger cranks and similar accessories that accelerate a semi-automatic rifle’s rate of fire."

"The bill also makes clear that its intent is to target only those accessories that increase a semi-automatic rifle’s rate of fire. Legitimate accessories used by hunters would be exempt. The bill also contains exceptions for lawful possession of these devices by law enforcement and the government."
