    the AWB would have banned? I don't believe most cops have those either.

    •  Actually, they do. (0+ / 0-)

      Most every police department in the country issues AR-15s to their cops, now. Most have one in the trunk.

      Why? Because they're extremely effective at short and medium range, reliable, accurate, and don't overpenetrate. They're modular, easy to switch parts on, and can be changed from caliber to caliber by simply changing the upper section and magazine, thus economical for users.

      Why should the police have the best defense tool and the law-abiding citizens be denied it?

      Because I can tell you from firsthand experience...most cops only shoot as many times at a range per year as they HAVE to to qualify. They're often not very good shots at all. Civilians who practice are much, much better.
