By what stretch of the imagination, are police ever ‘outgunned’, as Joe Biden claims. To quote Bill Anderson, how often do criminals use “machine guns, flash-bang grenades, troop carriers, tanks, and other combat material”? A police officer with just his side-arm could be ‘outgunned’ in a specific scenario by (already banned) automatic firearms, however anytime they call for backup, there’s no chance police are ever going to be ‘outgunned’. It’s pretty clear police these days are nearly as heavily armed as the military. Single shot, semi-automatic rifles in no way result in police being outgunned.
