...The effort would be modeled after successful efforts in Iraq to empower the locals to police their own neighborhoods...The thinking is that the locals are closer to the community and their people, and thus can better police their own streets.



What a great idea. Maybe we should propose an amendment to our constitution so we can similarly protect our neighborhoods, maybe something starting with "A well regulated..." ;)

While no decisions have been made, officials said the plan is under review.

I wouldn't hold my breath.

Sounds like a great idea to me. You got me vote if you run for Prez Liberty1.

It makes me sick that we, as US taxpayers, are buying full-auto military guns for Iraqis (who can't even have real background checks done on them), while at the same time, any US citizen in the US who gets one (somehow) is guilty of a felony. (I'm not counting the small pool of legal, very very expensive, NFA-registered M16s in circulation.)

This is just bad idea and is gonna back fire. the russians tried this giving people weapon to fight the freedom fightersw, and what happened, they used the same weapons to kick their commie asses.

I just hope that this proposition gets canned... How about disarming all the citizens of Iraq and give the guns to Afganistan citizens to see if this works before we send OUR guns overthere... And then if the violence comes down, arm American Citizens in the U.S. with the good stuff....
