Wow ! That officer has Pepper Spray, Taser, Glock Semi-automatic 9mm pistol, Bullet Resistant Vest and a AR-15 Semi-automatic Assault Weapon with two 20 Rounds Magazines filled with High Velocity ammunition. Hopefully they won’t be needing any of these High powered Human Killing Weapons once all the Licensed Firearm owners hand in their sporting rifles
