6. yeah
Reportedly, tank master Marvin shot his .50 cal at some big propane cylinders, but was presumably disappointed when none of them blew up as planned. On the other hand, a private citizen lent his own .50 to police, who tried to pierce the armor with it. That didn't work either, though, because our Marv had spared no expense: the bulldozer weighed something like 60 tons to begin with, and he'd stuck about 15 tons of concrete-filled steel plate on top that.

So I guess the .50 calibre involvement was kind of a wash.

It's amazing that nobody got squished. Heemeyer plowed the bulldozer into the townhall during children's story hour.

As for that Leask fellow, I read that he's still in the psychiatric ward somewhere. I guess they won't let him go out and play with the big yellow machines anymore. :(
