But Feinstein went on: “Oh, some may have, yes, but if where you’re going is, do they need an assault weapon, I don’t think so. … You can use a 12-gauge shotgun and have a good defensive effect, and there’s the element of surprise. Now you’ve got police all over the place in Watertown, so, I don’t really think that this is applicable. I think, there are people that want to make this argument, but a 12-guage shotgun, there are many weapons… that are available to people for choice without an assault weapon.”
Too bad the reporter did not ask her: if shotguns were appropriate in this situation then why did I see cops running around with AR15/M16s?
I want the same guns that the LEOs can have .. clearly they have value beyond a shotgun.
