Cops find themselves in arms race with criminals

WEST PALM BEACH, Florida (CNN) — The war on the streets is escalating. As gangs and other criminals pack more firepower, police departments say they find themselves in an arms race. …

Eleven paragraphs into the story, we find the source, the motivation and the agenda for this prattle:

[Robert Tessaro, the associate director for law enforcement relations for the Brady Campaign to Prevent Gun Violence.] “… lays the blame squarely on lawmakers who allowed the assault weapons ban to expire in 2004.”

Law Enforcement Officers wishing to participate in the arms race, please contact me via the Commercial site. Note that dealer samples are solely for the use of authorized law enforcement organizations for the purpose of comparison and/or testing and evaluation of that firearm or concept prior to the purchase of firearms. If you are an authorized law enforcement agency and wish to utilize any of the dealer samples currently in stock for the above purposes, please contact us for information and scheduling.

If you are an authorized law enforcement agency and wish to test a weapon that we do not currently have in stock, please contact us and we may be able to find a dealer who currently has that weapon available for testing and evaluation.

If we are unable to find a particular weapon, we can order a dealer sample, at no cost to the department, upon receipt of a Written Request acceptable to the BATFE. Please note that these requests are currently taking eight (8) to nine (9) MONTHS for BATFE approval. We recommend that you submit your requests as early as possible in order to get the weapons in time to test and evaluate early enough to get funds placed in your next budget.

Dealer samples are not transferable to individuals and are not available to individuals for any purpose.
