We should force the police to carry less dangerous weapons, like the FAL, M1A, or Barrett semiauto. [rolleyes]

Damn, the prices for LEO only ARs are that expensive.[:O]

Also stolen were two magazines holding between 40 and 80 rounds of ammunition and the gun case, police said. --What, they don't know the size of their mags? lol "There is significantly more power in an AR 15 than a regular handgun," said John White, Denver Police spokesman --now an AR is a handgun? just not a "regular" one? The AR 15 is considered to be a specialized weapon that could be potentially hazardous in the hands of an untrained person, police said. --personally, i'd rather have an untrained person trying to shoot at me [:)]

Ah crap! I didn't know my AR-15 was more powerful than a handgun. Damn. What the hell am I going to do with it now? I mean, something like that "could be potentially hazardous in the hands of an untrained person". Better get myself trained before I blow off my foot, or something. Hum, wonder what that hole is in the end of that long metal thingie? Hey, any of you boys know how to use an AR-15?

I heard that they can shoot off like a hundred rounds a second, shoot through 4 guys wearing body armor, plus they make the owner want to shoot innocent people and babies. We're all in big trouble if there is really one of these things out there on the street. I'm going to go lock my front door now and then go hide in my attic. Let me know when they find it.

These guys are funny. Those evil AR-15s in the hands of the cops. Is this guilt by association or are they now the good guns?

If you find it, be careful. I've heard that they fire a bullet FOR EVERY PULL OF THE TRIGGER!!! [:O]

Link Posted: 5/11/2002 10:32:57 PM EDT
Oh my! 1 bullet for every pull of the trigger? Things like this should be banned. I think you should have to do a combination of key turns and trigger pulls to fire it. And so it doesnt look all evil maybe it should shoot flowers and have a button instead of a trigger.

He should be fired! I work in a fairly secure enviroment. Everytime that I leave my vehicle I lock the doors. My weapon (HK G41) is in a locked rack to boot. IDIOT!!!!!!!!!!!!!1

The article in question must be viewed in the context of the audience it intends to address. That is, the cloistered, non-shooting/evil-black-gun-fearing, skulls-full-O-mush readers that haven't the slightest clue about firearms, and whom seem to share a common opinion that the law is a phenomenon unto itself, rather than a codification of some greater/higher sense of a moral consciousness (And don't ask how the law ever came into being in the 1st place). This, in concert w/ writers who fall into the same category - except that they get paid to publish & profer their opinions as fact to said general public - guarantees the type hyperbolie that is common currency in modern rags. C'est la vie.

Shoot, for $2000 I'll send them mine and then buy a pre-ban and a post ban for myself.

This happened here in the Valley of the Sun suburb of Glendale,AZ. Swat officer left his MP5 in his trunk, when he got home. Next morning he found someone broke had into his car and stole his MP5.

Some one stole two police shotguns here in Tulsa about 2 weeks ago. I thought the they kept these things locked. MAYBE they should put trigger locks on them to keep unautorized people from using them.

Yeah, some kids around here got into a cop car in the cop's driveway, which the cop brilliantly left unlocked, and got a Mini 14, a tac vest, and a "pepperball gun." This thing is a paintball gun cops use to fire OC-filled paintballs. The kids then robbed a Circle K with the pepperball gun and shot the clerk with it. Good thing they didn't use the Mini. "Take guns away from the cops. For the children."

There were a couple of auto-break-ins not long ago, here in N. Texas. Cops would park their personal vehicles at restarants, and their toys would be stolen while they were eating.

Put the phone down. Firemen don't know how to handle these things. Hold on while I get you the address of my FFL, so we can assure you of their safe, um, disposition. Send the ammo separately, please. [:)]

Oh nuts, they're "specialized" and "shoot a bullet each time you pull the trigger"? Damn it. Mine's not that specialized! Mine will only fire a bullet if I load it, charge it then pull the trigger. These special issue AR-15 thingies are sounding better all the time. Glad I got me one. Now to get trained so I can tighten up my 1.5 inch groups, before I get dangerous or something!

Question: Would a normal citizen get charged with anything for having a firearm stolen from his/her car?
Link Posted: 5/12/2002 4:59:06 PM EDT
Well, Hell, maybe I should take my old beatup ASA AR15 to the DPD and swap them for the $2000. Good deal for everyone, right?
Link Posted: 5/12/2002 8:56:35 PM EDT
Well, the lost AR turned up and is fine. A teenage girl heard a bang and a crush, as a car started in front of her house, and found the black rifle pretty much in the gutter. Happened right in front of the house where the parked police cruiser was parked, when the gun was "stolen". The girl hid it at a playground, and later handed it to her mother, who in turn called the police.

City Councilman Ed Thomas, a retired officer, likened the incident to the former "Andy Griffith Show" on television, in which Deputy Barney Fife had to keep his single bullet in his shirt pocket to keep from having accidents. "Andy had to take the bullet away from Barney, and that may be the case here, too," Thomas said. "It could have been a real tragedy, and the department is lucky."

That's classic. At least we're not the only ones who recognize the idiocy in all of this.

My wife had to endure my rant as I listened to the news story on this one. She said if it wasn't for my knowledge, she would have thought that this horrible machine gun weapon that could shoot through engine blocks had been stolen. (And not even full auto!) Thanks to KMGH Channel 7, Denver for your sensationalist reporting. regards, legrue

MarkM The shotguns in Tulsa were in one of those racks. They busted out the windows in the 2 cruisers and got one rack open. On the other crusier they took the rack and the shotgun. It was on the news last night. Crimestoppers.
Link Posted: 5/13/2002 9:40:38 PM EDT
Did any one catch the little drawing in the denver post article. It said the AR-15 had a 600 - 900 round per minute rate of fire. Now how'd they do that. You gotta have a fast finger and be able to change mags awfully fast.

Not in AZ. I had a Government model stolen from my jeep; it was recovered and returned in less than a year.
