No! Only crazies own assault rifles.
No, they are too expensive!
No, no need to.
Yes, for self defense
Yes, for recreation and sport
Yes, to perform my patriotic duty if the nation is invaded
Yes, because it's my constiutional right
Yes, because I'm one of the CRAZIES!!! hahahahaha
Why would I buy an assault rifle?
Because I can.
Police officers are civilians. Period.
They are sworn law enforcement officers who are part of the civil authority of the local, state or national government.
There is military, and there is civilian. That which is not military is civilian. Senators are civilians. Judges are civilians. Governors are civilians. Police are not military: therefore they are civilian.
When I was in LE there was never any question that we were in any way part of the military; we were part of civil government, therefore civilian.
We were armed citizens with legal enforcement authority, not soldiers.
Stick a big period right there.
