Are border agents being disarmed?

by Michel Marizco and Lupita Murillo  |  published on November 14, 2014

That’s one of the questions being asked after the News 4 Tucson Investigators broke the story earlier this week that U.S. Customs and Border Protection is taking rifles away from some of its agents.

Our story showed that Customs and Border Protection removed some M4 rifles, citing safety concerns with the weapons. But agents and people within the law enforcement community told us those rifles are not being replaced.

That leaves agents, even senior agents, having to share their weapons. They told us that having to personalize settings on a rifle, like the sights, for example, takes time to do correctly and a poorly sighted weapon can cause an agent their life in a gunbattle.

The question is raised, why is the Border Patrol taking these M4s now?
