Lol @ those criticizing him giving to a government organization.
I went to impact guns and put together a little wishlist. You have a $1030 M4, 6 $30 mags, $68 of cleaning supplies, a $48 gun case, and one tacticool item, a $350 surefire light. All that together without any ammo or armourer's equipment that totals up to about $1700 worth of gear. Sure, you don't need the light but it would be handy for any use at night when they might get a lot of their call outs. Just $300 of ammo goes real fast.
I guess I just fail to see how giving free money to government helps anyone. Please enlighten me. Because of course, what government just doesn't have enough of is guns.
Sorry I should have qualified that as being from modern hollywood types.
That is not factually correct based on the story. If he plans to transfer them to each individual officer then I stand corrected, however the story seems to clearly state that he is giving them to the DEPARTMENT, ergo, he is giving them to government. Sorry to bother you with the facts
I think you need to calm down because NO ONE here, repeat NO ONE, has said that cops "don't deserve anything," or that cops are "scumbags." I think everyone who has posted in this thread does not appreciate you lying about them because that is what you just did.
YOU sir, on the other hand, just called all of us "pissants." Go relax, all you're doing is poisoning the discussion with your anger and name calling.
You know Robert DeNiro has a CCW for NYC...
A Hollywood type buying AR15s? I'm impressed.
Now hold on, I will be the first to say that is not fair. I have no idea how the transaction will take place but I have plenty of confidence that the officers will end up with the guns that Mr. Spade intends them to end up with.
I don't know - but he did recently knock up a playmate.
Arming the police, to disarm the populace....
Sounds highly probable to me that he is a government worshipper
He's from the area. He's donated a lot of money to local causes, government or otherwise - when they're facing financial hardship.
I wouldn't read more into this then simply local guy who made it big looking out for his hometown.
I don't care for Spade's acting, or the movies he's in, but helping to better arm individual officers puts him in a pretty good light, to me.
The thought of LE having military-style weapons gives me a cold chill, especially in light of the botched SWAT raids I keep hearing about.
That would be a story if you'd purchase some AR's for private citizens too.
Let me know when you put your plan to buy us some AR's into effect - I'd like to get on the list.
Don't know the guy's politics, but at least he's willing to step up and use his wealth for something worthwhile.
He has my respect for that.
