    Unnecessary and terrifying. Trump has encouraged, enabled and emboldened "bad apple" and poorly trained officers to literally get away with murder. Growing up, I thought cops were supposed to be courageous. Many are, but too many use "fear" as an excuse to terrorize communities. People will die because of lifting this ban-innocent people. Police will not receive nearly enough (if any) training on how to use these weapons safely in populated areas. I'm so scared all of the time and it increases my fear as Trump abuses his power more and more. He admires violent dictators and I see lifting this ban as moving this country yet another step close to a military state. I'm frightened because no one is stopping him and people need to before it's too late and stopping him has become too difficult.
