Rand Paul: We Must Demilitarize the Police

I don’t agree with 100% of what Rand Paul says, he’s on the right track. Police have no need for weapons that are meant for mass targets. Particularly weapons as devastating as a .50 cal. I can acknowledge a semi-auto assault rifle. I will allow a higher caliber sniper rifle. BUT by no means do they need anything automatic or mounted. Can I accept an armored vehicle though? Yes because it’s defensive and protects. You can kill someone with an mrap as readily as a police cruiser, but if you have an active shooter, having armor to keep him from killing them I find acceptable.
