They didn't call it an Assault Rifle!

Not too much interesting to the story really, I'm just surprised they got the name right.

Are the Anti-Gun tides starting to turn???

Dallas police car with ammo inside catches fire on Loop 12 4:02 PM CT

A police squad car caught fire this afternoon as two officers were traveling on Loop 12 in Dallas near Cockrell Hill, authorities said.

Officers inside the Dodge Intrepid with an AR-15 in the trunk were not injured in the incident which began about 1:30 p.m. near Jefferson Boulevard, Dallas police said.

The officers had gotten out of their car after smelling something and noticed flames, said Dallas Fire-Rescue spokesman Ernest Gurule. The officers got a safe distance from the vehicle and began directing traffic away from the fire.

Firefighters let the car burn itself out because officials feared ammunition in the vehicle would explode and send shrapnel into the air and injure personnel, Gurule said. An officer said he could hear the rounds of ammunition exploding in the fire.

The catalytic converter in the vehicle appears to have caught on fire, Dallas fire said. It was likely that some foreign substance - either paper or plastic - somehow made contact with the hot converter and caught fire.

The road, which was closed earlier this afternoon between Keeneland Parkway and Jefferson Boulevard, reopened about 4 p.m., according to Traffic Pulse.

It's not an assault weapon unless it's owned by somebody that isn't in the military or a cop.

Hagen described the gun, which was Bobby Lozano’s service pistol, as being “one of the most dangerous weapons in the world.”

“It’s an assault weapon, a combat weapon. It has no external safety, just a little, tiny safety on the trigger."


Holy S**T Batman! I feel a lot better knowing that my Glock is one of the most dangerous weapons. I'm not afraid of anything now as long as it is by my side.
I don't have to fantasize about that electric powered mini gun anymore.

They are both tools. The other lawyer used the word "snazzy"! I'm 60 and that was my mother's lingo!

They only use that term when it suits their purpose. Guy shoots some people up with an AR-15? Nope, guy shoots some people up with an evil assault weapon. Cop car burns up with an evil assault weapon in the trunk? Nope, cop car burns up with an AR-15 in the trunk.

it's a negative story about the danger of rifles, now people are going to question why rifles are in their trunk, because if the car catches on fire, the bullets might kill people.


NOPE! fox4 just called them "AR-15 assault rifles" tonight on the news.

I didn't think of it that way since nobody was hurt.

Great, thanks Fox...

That's what they get for buying a Dodge Intrepid.

Give me a dollar.

Sarcasm bro. Come on.
