Honestly, i dont see any sort of acceleration into a Police State from the NH Shootout. Yes i have also been interested in these kind of events. But
think about it, if the police had gotten more heavier weaponry
(which they do now due to the NH shootout, they have shotguns in their trunks where their out-gunned)
from that event, i think Columbine and the more recent Virginia Tech would have ended faster then they would of.
But yes, i see your point. Due to the NH shootout, it gives the police the excuse to arm themselves with M4's while out on a simple footpatrol or
something. yes i see what you mean.
But if there were any Police State actions taken by police, i am 100% sure that they would be VERY noticable.
The police that day had standard 9mm. handguns, and were about maybe 25 feet or more away, in a life/death situation with adrenaline coursing thorough
their body from excitement and such. and to get a headshot against a drugged up, AK 47 assailiant, that would take major luck. and they had to wait
for SWAT because most police officers dont get shot at with AK 47s everyday so their normal COA's wouldnt of been sufficient to battle with the
shooters. But that is totally my civillian opionion.
