U.S. Law Enforcement Probably Has Enough Military Equipment To Last About 25-50 Years... I have no clue as to what good President Obama's curbing military equipment being issued to  law enforcement (source) is going to do except maybe gain him some political points. Don't get me wrong, it is a small step in the right direction, I just truly believe that law enforcers, in general, need to be stripped of most every bit of military gear and equipment they have been issued with the exception of most of their personal protective body armor. They do not need machine guns (note I did not say submachine guns) , they do not need armored personnel carriers or armored assault vehicles, they do not need tracked vehicles that can destroy a house by knocking it down with an attached ram, they do not need 50 caliber rifles, they do not need drones, they do not need 90-95% of the militarized gear and equipment they now have. Military gear and equipment should be reserved solely for the military and steps should be taken to strip LE of what they have of it already and to turn them back into law enforcers, who serve and protect us and our Constitution, instead of becoming the right hand of tyrannical government.

All the best,
