Vice PresidentĀ Joe Biden recently declared at a recent PBS event [2] that Congress needs to outlaw “assault weapons” because the police are overwhelmed by heavily-armed criminals. Declared the Veep:

One of the reasons the assault weapons ban makes sense, even though it accounts for a small percentage of gun deaths, is because police organizationsoverwhelmingly support [3] it because they are outgunned on the street by the bad guys and the proliferation of these weapons.

There is only one problem with Biden’s statement: it isn’t true, or it isn’t true unless criminals are regularly using machine guns, flash-bang grenades, troop carriers, tanks, and other combat material. TheĀ following link shows photos [4] of a small cross-section of the military gear the American police are using on a regular basis. Just who is “outgunned” in America these days? It certainly is not the police.
