I know when I moved here the small Village of Andover, Ohio already had a armored vehicle that was given them by the NG once a little place like that has one then everybody wants them, when you think about it some large cities could more than likely need one.

There's no such thing as an "assault" weapon. That is a media-coined term meant to gin up an emotional response from an uneducated populace.Flyer5 wrote:I am not sure how I feel about this.

Something is coming. Nobody is exactly sure of the "what" & "when". A few have come out in the past week and have said a "major" economic "event" will occur in the next 60 days. With a debt as high as we have now, anything is possible - frankly I'm shocked it hasn't happened already. Seeing how people completely melt down after just one week without power, after a month of no power / no food, the streets will be a completely different place than we've grown accustomed to. It's going to be VERY ugly ....
If history is any indicator, be aware that the gov't will have no problem using those vehicles against the American populace.
