    The cops don't have grenade launchers, either; not that fire high explosive rounds, anyway.
    that's cool, that's cool. The People should have access to all the same weapons, vehicles, and tools the Police are allowed access to. Problem solved.

    At 64 years of age, people ask me why I look so young. My reply is that I have been well pickled and preserved. LOL.

    No civilian can possess an automatic weapon, without owning a class III firearms license.

    You are. Anything that's legal for the cops to have is legal for you to have.

    It's my understanding that a class III is needed by the person affecting the weapons transfer - i.e. the dealer. As an individual you don't require one. You do require a background check, have to make an application to the ATF and the local PD pay some taxes and comply with state law.

    And in any case we're talking a police agency not private ownership so those rules don't necessarily apply at all.
