David Spade donates $100,000 to Phoenix police to buy AR-15 rifles

This was a really nice thing for David Spade to do and I wanted to give him a shout out. Reportedly some of the policemen's families were so concerned they were willing to forego their Christmas in order for a gun to be privately purchased by the policemen.

LOS ANGELES (AP) -- The Phoenix Police Department has gotten some high-powered goodies courtesy of actor David Spade.

The one-time Phoenix resident donated $100,000 so that the department can buy approximately 50 AR-15 rifles.

Spade said he wanted to make the donation after seeing a TV news report about Phoenix officers having to buy their own rifles.

"These guys need to be able to do their jobs and I am just happy I could help," Spade said in a statement released by his publicist.
