I tune out cops in the media stories that states stuff like, "Oh noes! Cops are undergunned by the crooks!"
Either the complainant is living in a fantasy world where every gangbanger has an UZI and an AK-47, full auto, or they are thinking about North Hollywood Shootout, where the regular patrol cops were lacking in a simple trunk gun .30-30.
Cops have never needed tanks or .50 cals. Or select fire anything, for that matter.
Cops need TRAINING, I'll go with. Know how to shoot and deploy that lever gun, that revolver, and that pump scattergun. I defy Diane Sawyer to cite a circumstance where a police officer that knew what they were doing needed more than that, ever
Oooh, shiny! -
