    I know this may be an unpopular view here, but I support this bill.

    Don't they already have select fire weapons?
    I sure hope they have night vision.
    I don't have "asshat" neighbors nor a meth lab or a garage.
    And I would EXPECT they would need more then one phone call before actions such as you describe.

    How does this law prevent carrying out "unconstitutional BS" with or without military ordnance?
    Then you wish to abolish our military?
    Don't we already have a standing army?

    We already paid for this equipment, if the Feds aren't going to use it, the locals may as well.
    Armored vehicles? I don't want our cops killed because they can't afford protection.
    Why wouldn't you want police to have access to any of that stuff?

    I don't support it either.
    Just because something is legal to do doesn't mean it is the smart thing to do.
