AR-15: Boston Police/Mayor clash over Patrol Rifles for Cops

Boston police spokesman Sgt. Mike McCarthy had said...would be strictly regulated and would not be used during routine patrol. Use of the weapons could include an active-shooter incident, firing on a suspect from a distance and confronting a suspect wearing body armor....
