Sure did...but not so much said about the kidnapping, drug-running Mexican SCUM Juarez cartels...the real threat

Wouldn't be politically correct, and might lead to problems, from Ms. Napalitano, getting the funds from Homeland Security

According to the story...El Paso cops want these rifles to combat Ft Bliss soldiers with handguns.

See, kissing Ms. N's butt. (Sorry about the disgusting image that produces. :) )

However I suspect the EPD knows what the real threat is.

Thank you my friend. There’ll be a few more assembled for our side before too long.

Peter Pacillas, assistant chief for training and special operations, does not single out soldiers for concern. He says, “Anybody who has the capability of using a high-caliber weapon is a concern for us.”

Geez Dude, you live in Texas, that's a heck of lot of people to be paranoid about. :)

Although I don't think I'd call 5.56 mm "high caliber", now 7.62 comes closer, but .50 would really be high caliber. Lot's of Texans have the latter two calibers in their "inventory".

Like these two (who are a mite older now, and the rifle actually belonged to FR's own Texas Cowboy, now standing post up yonder)

Even lil ole me (well OK BIG old me) has two 7.62 caliber rifles, no wait, three, almost forgot the (war) baby. :) I guess I better take her out for a "spin" to refresh my memory. Although I'm thinking about giving her to my wife, but maybe I can pawn the Chinese SKS off on her, it would be more effective at stopping "varmints" anyway. She wouldn't want or have use for the H&K.

I'll keep the TWO AK's I bought for that price years ago and my Remington 700 "deer rifle" for $300/ the close in work..... ;-)

Sounds Good to me. As I stated, the AR was my last purchase, just 'cause I wanted one. (plus consideration of ammunition availability in domestic contingeincies). Also have SKS, H&K in 7.62 NATO, and the war baby (.30 M1 Carbine).

Since the major cause of police deaths is fratricide I think this is an industrial strength dumb idea. Most cops have the fire discipline of Arabs at a Saddam rally.

I wish they would buy built 6.8SPC M4 configured rifles that way there would more 6.8 ammo in production.

Therein lies the problem, ammo production. During these uncertain times, it pays to have a caliber that is very common and depending on situation and your needs, available.

When I was a LEO, we had a Mini-14 in every car, along with the 12 ga.

“During these uncertain times, it pays to have a caliber that is very common and depending on situation and your needs, available.”

In that case the police should have weapons based on the 30-06. I suggest they acquire BARs. LOL!
