Beg to differ with you Tom, but stolen AK clones are indeed being used in banger shootings and a good friend of mine got his squad car shot full of holes by a bank robber with an AR15.
Ah, look at Sarge, catching a Staff member at an overbroad statement! That's going in my list...[scribble, scribble, frowny face]
It does happen. That's why I'm glad the shotgun has been augmented by the M4 in the patrol car.
Even if such incidents were an everyday occurrence, they should highlight the necessity for civilians to have such implements at their disposal as well.
