Why wouldn't have an officer with an AR have stopped the North Hollywood incident sooner than actually happened?

The two guys were hit with multiple handgun rounds and continued firing.

Given that a rampage nut can kill tens of folks in a couple of minutes and we now expect officers to immediately engage - I'm quite alright with them engaging with a long arm. Like I said - my building is 100 yards long. Yep, if a plain old officer isn't trusted to engage at that distance with a long arm - the solution is to train them up to make 100 yard shots with a pistol. It has been done but why not make it easier.

If police culture is so warped by having a long arm that they become tyrants of the state, do having ARs make average folks into rampaging nutsos. That's the claim and I don't buy either.
