    And Interoperability by choosing the same caliber as the RCMP has nothing to do with it either. Can’t have Bush cops out distancing the Horseys on joint maneuvers...
    According to a couple CO's I know, these new protection and rural response units are excatilly why they are getting ar 15's. They also have radars now in all their trucks and computers to run plates with.

    Cops having good guns? I'm in favor of it.

    Military is totally different than LE, not a good fit.

    I don't care WHAT the CO's carry.

    The basic jobs of LE and MIL are fundamentally different. In no way should LE be trained by MIL.

    MIL does not arrest people. They kill people. THAT is not something the LE should be learning.

    In the off season these guys will ticket you for having a burning barrel in your farm yard. No thanks. They have also been known to use the slimmest justification for searching farm yards and vehicles during hunting season. One of the neighbors had his farm searched because he had his pickup backed up to the overhead door on his shop.

    Trained by the military?

    They have enough problems with their own training.

    Let’s not screw them more than they already are.
    To show that men can travel to the moon and return, use the American experience.

    To show that public safety isn’t hurt by responsible individuals carrying to protect life, use the American experience.

    While I certainly agree in giving them the tools they need, by their own admission they’ve never even needed the pistols they carry on their hips (for LE, not putting down animals).

    There is nothing wrong with them having carbines, just like there is nothing wrong with us having carbines.

    It's the most common general-purpose rifle you can get, so it should be in common usage.

    It would be no different than handing out Winchester levers when they were the most common general purpose rifle, or handing out Lee Enfields when they were the most common general purpose rifle. An AR is the most common general purpose rifle today.

    It's light, fires a general purpose cartridge, is easy to load/unload, etc. If anything, I'd want one in 7.62 NATO if I were a Conservation Officer, in case I had to put down a moose or bear.

    If anyone does something bad to lose their right/privilege to have one then take their guns away.
    Don’t order from Wolverine Supplies. PM me for details.
