"He who does not think himself worth saving from poverty and ignorance by his own efforts, will hardly be thought worth the efforts of anybody else." -- Frederick Douglass, Self-Made Men (1872)
Still waiting for you to support your argument.
Be sure to explain how, if the availability of guns is the explanation for the relatively high number of murders, how it is the number of guns goes up every year, and yet the number of gun murders is about the same as it was 35 years ago.
THEN tell us how banning 'assault weapons' will have any significant effect on this.
And THEN tell us how a ban on 'assault weapons' does not violate the Constitution.
To answer your question:
Depending on the specific police department, police usually carry some sort of 'assault weapon' in the car, either in the passenger compartment or in the trunk.
George Washington didn't use his freedom of speech to win the war with Britain... He shot them.
