M-4 Carbine Authorized For Chicago Beat Cops

So says, J-Fed, Chicago’s new police superintendant. I won’t hold my breath waiting for this to really happen considering the current ammunition allotment and yearly requalification for the officer’s handgun use.

The M-4's must be purchased and some kind of qualification schedule must be implemented. Then the carbines must be distributed. Steps need to be taken to maintain control over these weapons so the local natives don’t steal them.

One thing for sure it won’t happen in time for the heat of Chicago’s summer or homicide season. This is just going to be another example of too little, too late.

Needless to say the press is already exaggerating the power and capabilities of these weapons. No folks they don’t fire magic bullets that explode in a ball of fire on impact. Chicago’s reverends will be screaming about cops being sent hunt the Black youth with weapons of war instead of hugs and free money.

Hey J-Fed! I like these too. How about getting 5000 of these babies to keep our cops safe?

Why does'nt the city get lawyers to pay for the guns. Then, when the police use them, the lawyers sue and collect on a large settlement. Hell, they can even write off the gun's purchase as a "business" expense.

God Bless America - It's well past flippin' time the good guys got some realistic fire power to do their jobs. This should be put into effect in every city and small town across America. AMEN!
