With the BLM proposal that includes elimination of "military equpment" it seems important to know what that term means. Some seem content and believe they know what the term means. Unfortunately, I believe they are naive. Return with me to those halcyon days of the late 80s. At that point many police departments still issued wheel guns to their officers. Glocks were new, and broadly derided. Many departments were considering changing to new semiauto pistols. S&W was the big player initially, thus buying American was part of the sale. There were significant voices claiming that doing so was militarizing our police. Jump back to today. What limits the term "military equpment" to things like APCs as has been used as an example? Remember, pistols with more than 6 rounds were at one point considered militarization of the police.
