This is why we need to be armed with what ever the bad guys can carry. At the time the standard FBI guns was a 6-shot 357 Mag revolver or a 7-shot 45 ACP pistol and a pump shotgun.
And four FBI agents where out shot but two bad guys.
Yes, two bad guys dead but also two FBI agents dead and two wounded.
1986 FBI Miami shootout
From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
The 1986 FBI Miami shootout was a gun battle that occurred on April 11, 1986 in an unincorporated region of Miami-Dade County in south Florida between eight FBI agents and two serial bank robbers. During the firefight, FBI Special Agents Jerry L. Dove and Benjamin P. Grogan were killed, while five other agents were wounded. The two robbery suspects, William Russell Matix and Michael Lee Platt, were also killed.
The incident is infamous in FBI history and is well-studied in law enforcement circles. Despite outnumbering the suspects 4 to 1, the agents found themselves pinned down by rifle fire and unable to respond effectively. Although both Matix and Platt were hit multiple times during the firefight, Platt fought on and continued to injure and kill agents. This incident led to the introduction of more powerful handguns in the FBI and many police departments around the United States.

The point being is that the bad guys have those weapons and how can I defend myself with a 7-shot pistol when the bad guy may have an AR-15 or AK-47?<quoted text>
1986? Fully 27 years ago? That's the best you can come up with? And who argues about the police and the FBI being armed with automatics and assault rifles? No one, that's who. Gun control citizens want gun nuts like you to be licenced and background-checked, is all. You really don't get it, do you? If you're found to be law-abiding and sane, you'll get to keep your guns, but no assault arms or rifles, got it? YOU DON'T NEED THEM. YOU ARE NEITHER THE POLICE, THE STATE POLICE OR THE FBI. Clean?
