    Hand guns will fire through vehicles as well. A car offers no protection except the engine block.

    Also any high powered rifle and certain hand guns will penetrate through all police vest. Not just AR style rifles.

    There are 300 million firearms in private hands in this country. You can close every gun store tomorrow without changing one thing.

    Not true at all. A 9mm round will go through both doors of a police car or any non hardened vehicle for that matter. TV shows created the myth that hand guns can't go through cars.

    Bullet proof vests do not provide protection against high powered rifles, only handguns. Are you advocating a ban on any centerfire rifle as has been attempted in Australia and Britain? As others have stated, it's the crazy people that are the problem not the weapons.

    I think more police are going to speak out against assault rifles after Baton Rouge and Dallas. Our police are sitting ducks

    What are you even trying to say here?

    Disarming law adiding citizens only gives the advantage to criminals. See Chicago.

    i know that. That's my point. A vest will protect against a handgun. It will not protect against a weapon meant for war combat.

    Actually LEO will rail against the media and liberal agenda who are inciting hate and violence against police.

    We are a gun culture in this country and that isn't going to change. Ban all guns tomorrow and it won't matter. You would have nothing short of a civil war. "Assault rifles" are nothing but a distraction to much bigger issues. They do however allow our politicians an excuse for not spending effort, time, and money addressing those issues.

    I don't think any citizen needs simiautomatic weapons. I am not asking citizens to be disarmed. But man don't send officers into a war zone.

    You are sorely misinformed and do not understand the weapons involved if you believe that.

    The problem isn't really the guns. The problem comes with the belief that a gun is a solution for every problem. A gun's sole purpose is taking a life, period. It does not make anyone safer.

    If all you have in your toolbox is hammers, pretty soon everything looks like a nail.

    An ignorant over-generalization. Do some research.

    I've hunted with semi-automatic weapons my whole life. AUTOMATIC weapons are already illegal to possess by the vast majority of Americans.
