These freaks will use whatever weapons that are available to them. As we all know, ANYTHING can be deemed a "dangerous instrument" so hammers, cars, vans, clubs, broken bottles, all will be used against Law enforcement personnel. Europe is seeing this now and it is just a matter of time that it will happen here should guns be unavailable. Stay vigilant. Carry off-duty and always carry an extra magazine. These are perilous times. That French policeman was very lucky.
