Which makes me pretty sure you were never a cop, btw.
    I am not "expecting" anything. Just like I am not expecting a blow out on the way home. But I have a spare tire in my truck. I dont expect a fire in my home. But I have multiple extingushers.

    Care to quote me on any "story". So you dont think I was every a cop? Big deal what you think. I doubt you passed basic or even bothered to go.

    Why not? Remember, you supposedly swore to defend and uphold the constitution. The 2A is part of the constitution. You are the kind of government drone I fear.

    No. As I linked earlier, they have greater responsibility and are put in harms way more often. and as there are more civilians, you would expect more would be killed. Just saying. But I addressed that in my links.

    AUSTAN GOOLSBEE: I think the world vests too much power, certainly in the president, probably in Washington in general for its influence on the economy, because most all of the economy has nothing to do with the government.

    your parameters are idiotic. EVEN IF THERE Is one chance in a million that someone will need more than seven rounds that alone justifies them carrying more because as I have noted, you cannot point to any deleterious impact of them carrying more.

    so your argument-as many have pointed out-is nothing more than mental masturbation or contrarian silliness. Since there is absolutely no harm prove by having more and there are situations were people have needed more than 7 rounds, that alone means our argument is specious

    again there are cases of people needing more than 7 rounds. that alone destroys your argument

    Boo thinks that because most attacks are solved by less than 7 rounds no attack will need more

    that is patently moronic as is his argument of "hardship"

    well I was never a cop-merely a guy who defended them in court, developed use of force protocols for them and has trained them in defensive shooting tactics. the Korean grocers demonstrated that having normal capacity semi auto rifles was a good tactic when faced with lawless urban assholes bent on rioting.
