In pic #6 it says the police are armed with high-powered firearms. Why doesn’t it say ‘assault rifles?’ And why do the police need assault rifles with high-capacity magazines? Shouldn’t they be carrying pistols with 7 round mags or Citori 28 ga. skeet guns?
Looking at the picture in #5 I am of the opinion that those holes were not caused by .223 ammo in the "assault weapons" by by the much bigger ammo fired by their duty pistols, probably .40 - but those guns are not "scary looking" yet.
The cheap tin box with a spring that loads probably 12 or 15 rounds is "scary looking" and needs to be banned but the same tin box with a spring that loads 7 is good for now.
I think that is how we are supposed to look at things now if I'm up to date?
I don’t have much experience with firearms, but from reading what other FReepers have said through the years, the 5.56 round is certainly not high-powered.
