    And in any case we're talking a police agency not private ownership so those rules don't necessarily apply at all.
    And that would be a negative, ghostrider. To possess an automatice weapon, you have to own a class III firearms license. That includes cops. Cops aren't members of the military and soldiers are the ONLY folks who exempt from that law and then, only partially, because they still can't own an auto w/o a class III.

    Everything in your life is a reflection of a choice you have made. If you want a different result, don't blame someone else, or expect others to make a change, you should stop complaining and make a different choice. Remember, the circumstances of your birth don't determine the outcome of your life.

    I don't drink. My method of preservation is smoking. I've been smoked from the inside out.

    I don't understand the question. But, to clarify my position: The attorneys are the problem in that many tend to not give good advice to their clients, and instead of tempering their clients fever to sue, they see the potential for a huge settlement - of which the attorney gets no less than on third. Most lawsuits are settled out of court, by the attorneys, in a way that benefits them in many cases more than their clients. And, in that way, the attorneys are the problem.

    Im in the National Guard and I've never heard of such a thing. I've never heard of a rule that civilians can't be shot with automatic fire, and I've never heard of any kind of block installed in our assult rifles to make them semi. We clean weapons every drill so I think I would have noticed if a block were installed.

    In fact one of my two issued personal weapons is a belt-fed machiengun; automatic fire only.

    The "A1" designation represents a sub-type of that model. Exactly like software versions of Windows8 followed by Windows8.1, there's the M16A1 which was followed by the M16A2 and so forth.

    The M16A1 is capable of full-auto fire whereas the M16A4 is not. The M16A4 can fire 3rnd bursts instead.

    I would have more respect for cops if they didn't view themselves as stormtroopers - and didn't carry around the attitude of "us vs them"....

    Cops think they can do whatever the hell they want and pretend they're above the law or that the law doesn't apply to them.

    It's called a "locking plate" and it isn't a permanent install. During riot control operations they're mandatory, by law. If you're deployed to control a riot, issued live rounds and authorized to use deadly force, make sure it's installed on your weapon. If it's not, refuse to accept the live rounds. Forcing you to lock and load against American civilians, without the locking plate installed is an unlawful order. Absolutely refuse to draw an M-249 for such a scenario.

    It's installed like so,
