There is NO Constitutional authority for local police. The Founding Fathers envisioned the militia or the armed populace at large doing the police work.
The L.A. police will have the guns they and their communist democrat politicians deny the People.

Cowardice and apathy have their consequences.

Am I the only one that’s bothered by the fact that firearm, firearm accessories, and ammunition manufacturers have no problem selling their products to states that literally want them gone and the employers and owners to be put behind bars or killed

Then, you are ignorant of the fact the communist democrats intend a complete removal of all arms from private hands. They have said it at least 100 times since 1980.

What about 9mm and .40 caliber. Don’t new Academy graduates get issued Glock 17 or Glock 22? I’m sure I read that the overwhelming majority of LAPD officers use 9mm handguns, mostly Glock. Federal makes a lot of affordable LE 9mm ammo. I guess this is the foot in the door.

And like the vast majority of CA law enforcement agencies they do not train.

So our jacked-b00ted friends will be suing ammo that not even our good military can use. Hollow points and optimized killer rounds. Sounds good for protecting the socialist!
