An officer with a hand gun will be no match for an assault rifle. Assault rifles should only be in the hands of law enforcement. Reason police departments have needed to become militarized is due to assault military styled rifles in the hands of the public. Many of these mass shootings have had police officers present, no match, swat team needed to take down shooter.


You do realize that AR does not stand for assault rifle, correct?

It stands for Armalite Rifle.. the original company who created it.


bodacious.... spoken like a person that truly does not know anything about guns, let alone assault rifles.


Definition of assault rifle
: any of various intermediate-range, magazine-fed military rifles (such as the AK-47) that can be set for automatic or semiautomatic fire
also : a rifle that resembles a military assault rifle but is designed to allow only semiautomatic fire
