An FBI official said Boston police officers should be armed with assault rifles to make the city more prepared for a terrorist attack.
Warren Bamford, the special agent in charge of the FBI in Boston, said Tuesday that he is baffled by opposition to a proposal to give some neighborhood police officers the semiautomatic weapons.
Bamford said he believes more officers should have access to the guns in the event Boston becomes the target of a terrorist attack like the one that killed 166 people in Mumbai, India in November.
Frankly, I'm surprised they don't already have them in every squad car.
