I'll have to ask my buddy that works there. The last he told me they were getting Sig 556's.

It's not Harrisburg PD. It's the Capitol Police. And I just confirmed with my buddy that they did get the Tavor SARs. He said they shoot like a dream.

So... who do they need these weapons for? French & Indian forces? Are the British coming to burn Harrisburg? Has Al Qeada stated they are launching an assault in the middle of Penn's Wood? So glad there's money in the budget for weapons of war... which supposedly don't belong on our streets... but the kids in CHOP and St Christopher's are going without schooling this year because there's no money to be found.

More Mayberry, less Fallujah.

I know your weapon of choice is a lightsaber Wink, but I don't see anything wrong with police officers having patrol rifles....BUT citizens should be able to own them too. If I got a call (assuming I'm a LEO) for an active shooter in a mall/business/school/etc. I'd rather have a tavor than just a Glock 17/21/22/etc.

Now police officers dressed in full swat gear over stupid stuff is a different matter, but that's for another topic.

Remember the saying, "When guns are outlawed...." The same goes for the police. Take away patrol rifles and only outlaws will have them. Kind of an unfair advantage to the criminals, don't you think?
