    which is why the POTUS being the CinC is to show that civilian authority presides over the military

    here is an interesting article on civilian vs military police


    Are Military Police Above Civilian Police Officers?



    now deal with the point of if a government entity decrees a weapon suitable for self defense by civilian employees why does that not justify other civilians using that weapon as a suitable self defensive tool

    Even if you were an expert...do you think a jury would be so leniant on someone who fired upon a target 500m away? I mean sure if someone was shooting at YOU from 500m, but firing at someone stealing a tractor at 500m away or in a vehicle moving around your land at 500m...come on man. YOu should know that won;t look good.

    As shown, the definition of civilian specifically excludes members of the military, members of the police, and members of belligerent groups. Also as shown, civilians have more restrictions on weapons than the police and the military.

    stop lying stop diverting

    your definition is irrelevant and wrong

    federal statute has two categories

    military and civilians

    you are employing the squid defense-lots of ink and lots of suck



    the issue involves the statement by governments

    something you have spewed ink and suck at

    1. The political definition of "assault rifle" bordered on the ridiculous. My brother has a little .22. I could turn it into an "assault rifle" simply by attaching a lugnut to the end of it - not that it had a "bayonette mount", it was an "assault rifle"

    2. The best weapon to have when the zombies arise is an M-4 variant with the .306 caliber. Ergo, I need one.
