    cops aren't civilians.

    that's why they get to possess guns that we can't.

    RPG are banned. As are tanks.

    Why do you need an assault rifle? You don't.

    I don't know about RPGs, but I know for a fact tanks are not illegal. Furthermore, tanks are not "arms" which is what the second amendment covers. Finally, looking at present laws and arguing that they are a reasonable standard is not reasonable. If this were the case, we would not abolish slavery (or may even justify expanding it) simply because such law was already the case.

    plus the fact that while civilians run from trouble, cops are required to run towards it.

    you again engage in diversion

    why does the useful purpose change when the laws controlling the defense use of weapons are the same for civilian LEOs and non LEO civilians

    If someone breaks into your home in most states and shoots at you and then you avoid him and sneak up behind him do you have a duty to warn him or challenge him or can you shoot him in the back?

    how about a cop

    tell me Thunder

    1) how many times have you been in a gun fight or a knife fight and took out a criminal?

    2) how many cases of civilian LEO or non LEO civilian self defense shootings have you ever tried?

    Cops are ordered to run towards danger.

    Civilians are ordered to run AWAY from danger.

    that's why they get the cooler guns. Case closed.

    that is again a moronic claim--danger sometimes surprises people

    what if I cannot run, why should I not be able to have the same gun that my tax dollars go to pay for for cops

    do you realize how moronic your arguments are

    DO you understand under HELLER and McDOnald those weapons are protected by the constitution

    and why are you so dishonest you cannot actually address the question

    No wonder other posters tend to not even engage your posts

    Right. Racism is not rude.
