Found some quite interesting things for the somewhat tame San Diego county – 147 bayonets, 38 rolls of concertina wire, 14 sets of camo anti-radar netting, 60 anti-glare scope covers, 150 sets of Snow Camo parka’s/trousers – along with approximately 127 M16’s and 34 M14’s and lots and lots of camo clothing. I can see the AR’s and maybe a few M14’s for a DM rifle, but all the rest of it? Unless one of you LE types can help out, I just can’t see the “need” for bayonets or snow camo? And they’re supposed to be able to “show use” for this? I’d hate to look at Los Angeles county…

IMO, even SWAT’s should wear the regular uniform color and not camo if for the sole purpose of remaining a bit de-militarized.

Arms discourage and keep the invader and plunderer in awe, and preserve order in the world as well as property... mischief would ensue were the law-abiding deprived of the use of them.
