Police Chief Plans To Destroy 20-Percent Of Department's Guns

The calls to “re-imagine policing” in Cambridge, Massachusetts has led to the city’s police chief to push for the removal and destruction of dozens of semi-automatic firearms from the department.

Cambridge Police Commissioner Dr. Granville Bard says he decided on the move after conversations with a local activist who’s questioned the need for the department to equip officers with “high powered rifles” and other items.

According to Wicked Local, the push to partially disarm the Cambridge police, began last July, when the department released an inventory of equipment for the public to examine. Lauren Crowe, an Army veteran who spent two years in Afghanistan, drew attention to the list of weapons, which includes several dozen Colt M-4 rifles, and eventually had several discussions with Bard that led to the commissioner’s decision to “retire” about 20-percent of the firearms owned by the Cambridge police.
