Military Surplus For Police But Not For Civilians

Police departments all over the country are receiving heavily armored MRAPs from the military at the same time the administration is denying the importation of surplus M1 Garands from Korea.

From the AP on police MRAPs:

For police and sheriff’s departments, which have scooped up 165 of the mine-resistant ambush-protected vehicles, or MRAPS, since they became available this summer, the price and the ability to deliver shock and awe while serving warrants or dealing with hostage standoffs was just too good to pass up.
