Disarming the law abiding …

The New York Times reports that Miami police officers are being given the option of carrying assault rifles with them to counter an increase in use by criminals …

I think the money quote for this story is right there in the last line …

Not all officers may choose to carry the new weapon. But Chief Timoney said, “If I was a police officer out there in a tough neighborhood, I would want to have that in the car.”

So let’s take count.   The criminals have assault rifles, and now law enforcement does too.   Who’s left?  By my account, that only leaves the law abiding, including the victims of crime.   The assault weapons ban only served to victimize more people and make the world a more DANGEROUS place for the law abiding, not a safer place.
