"american wimp"<quoted text>Where I live the state police carry Colt AR15s with 30 rd mags. Since the police are hired civilians on patrol I have no problem with them having the same weapons any other civilian can own. Military and civilian are different. There are limits placed on the weapons a police force can have. Those limits are the same as the limits of any civilian. No state or local police force is ever mentioned in the Constitution.
In the constitution is their a clause or statement or amendment or anything that denies the states or localities from having a police force. Check out the 10th. amendment to the constitution.
