    but tell me how does the NATURE and USE of the weapon change?

    how does a weapon go from being the ideal self defense weapon in a civilian jurisdiction and environment to being completely unsuitable for others to use in that same environment
    civilians also can't buy flashbangs. Those are for police & military use only.

    Everytime you get nailed with an idiotic premise and I point out the idiocy you engage in diversions

    cops are not given any additional latitude to shoot people than you are I am

    so given that how does a Glock 17 go from being the ideal self defense weapon to something that has NO LEGITIMATE "civilian use" in some cities?

    cops are under the same courts as us
    cops are subject to the same laws as us
    cops cannot shoot anyone other than for the same justifications as the rest of us
    cops are tried in civilian courts of law
    suits against cops are in civilian courts of law
    cops are under the same chain of command as other civilian employees of the city or state they work for
    cops are under the same retirement and pension system as other employees of that city or state

    so quit trying to evade the point about the government view of the weapon by trying to spew idiocy that cops aren't civilians

    cops & military can carry & use flashbangs.

    civilians cannot.

    sadly for you there is no empirical evidence supporting that faith based belief and without it freedom is the default position

    they are important to me because in some situations they are the proper solution to a problem
    So if a few dozen more get shot by a madman because he was able to buy a weapon with that capability it's OK because you want a "proper solution" to some supposed problem?
    Is that what you would tell the family members of the deceased? That the murderer had a 100 shot magazine because you think you might need it someday and that's why they have the right to sell it to a maniac killer?
    The Aurora shooter wanted bombs too but couldn't get them, can you imagine if grenades were also something you felt were a "proper solution"? How many people must die to satisfy your ego?

    someone asked a question.

    i answered it. only cops & military can possess and use flashbangs.

    than answers his question, and proves your assertion to be false.

    I realize the loony left despises rights that tend to be exercised more by conservatives or libertarians.

    But you are clueless on this issue because you assume a ban will stop those intent on committing murder from getting those arms.

    come back when you actually have some argument based on reality

    I guess you haven't figured out my argument because I am noting that some cities issue guns they don't allow civilians to own and that is wrong

    so you yapping about flash bangs is stupid because my argument already assumes some idiots think cops should have firearms other civilians should not have

    no, its not stupid.

    someone asked what weapons cops can use that civilians can't. flashbangs is one example.

    Re: Why would you own an assault rifle?

    OK you have proven you are going to not answer the question but spam flash bangs over and over

    why should one group of civilians not be able to own common pistols that civilian cops are issued

    flashbangs don't meet the heller test

    Glocks do

    chew on that for a minute


    and assault rifles meet the heller test

    flash bangs don't


    flash bangs are not arms but rather ordnance as well
