    why do Federal Law enforcement jobs come under the General Service (CIVILIAN) classifications Thunder?

So that if the Chinese drilling off our coast where we are not allowed to ever decided to sneak soldiers and nukes into the gulf instead of oil rig workers and equipment and invaded Florida blitzkrieg style, I'd have a chance of getting out alive.

    Seriously though, would you own an assault rifle? And if so, why?
    I would personally not own an assault rifle. But a collector of guns might. Usefulness is not the foundation of a collection as people collect man things which have no usefulness.

    you made the idiotic an non supported psychobabble that cops are not civilians

    I have given several forms of proof that civilian LEOs are civilians

    the PC act distinguishes between MILITARY AND CIVILIAN

    you all just make unsupported statements

    I point out that FBI, DEA SS etc are under the CIVIL SERVICE job paradigm just like IRS revenue officers, IRS examiners, AUSAs, DOJ support staff, GSA building managers, etc

    YOu merely assert cops are not civilians

    Re: Why would you own an assault rifle?

    Did the OP, or are we using the proper definition of assault rifle, or are we on about assault weapons. Regarding them, I could see owning an ar15. I know how to shoot it, it has light/cheap ammo, it's easy to clean and repair (I learned some of that too), it's accurate to way out even on the iron sights and the round will take stuff down. I think the tumble would mess a bear up pretty well. Other than that, people have many reasons that they want particular rifles. Why should I be forced to learn some other weapon, how to shoot, clean, maintain, etc just because it looks mean. Capacity? Nonsense. It's just a good rifle that I know how to use proper, and I don't see it so much as an 'assault weapon'. Really, taking the military design off the shelf is wasting civilian knowledge in regard to firearms and asking for a higher percentage of ignorant gun-owners.

    Bolt action is not the best rifle for most people who have fired rifles before. Most people who have fired rifles, outside of hunting areas, did so in the military. Normal men and women who might want to hunt/defend/'play' with a rifle, millions. Let's take the rifle they know how to use off the market? It's tantamount to intentionally creating underskilled rifle users.

    An ar15 is a rifle, not an Assault Something. Excuse me if I don't want the government to force me to use an antique should I want a rifle. Musket argument... done.

    the most popular "sporting rifles" are what the current generation used in the military. Example-during the 20's and thirties, most of the rifle shooting (Centerfire) were variants of the Springfield WWI rifle or the German Mauser 98

    after WWII the 98 and the Springfield were still popular but millions of rounds were shot through the Garand and MI carbines that the Dept of CIVILIAN marksmanship sold to CIVILIANS at then discount prices (I have 5 Garands and 5 carbines from that source plus a few thousand rounds of 30-06 ball ammo)

    now the AR 15 is incredibly popular with guys who were taught how to clean, repair and maintain the almost similar M16 rifle in Nam or later

    Good point Eco

    ok....I will admit to a poor choice of words...."Pretty Much", can be interpreted as "It Is" if one wants it to be. I said Pretty Much a KKK rally like I would say a football game is pretty much over.

    Having been to this event, as well as a lising football game....I can state it IS pretty much infested with Racists types, Skinheads, and scary ass "Hey Y'all Watch This" malitia members wanting a chance to blow stuff up.

    here is something for you to chew on

    Marine Corps Civilian Police Program
    WASHINGTON — Despite the tough political climate for federal gun control legislation, [B]a coalition of law enforcement groups on Thursday called for background checks on all gun buyers and a ban on high-capacity ammunition magazines after the Colorado shooting rampage.[/B]“After looking at what happened in Aurora, Colo., who could be in favor of these high-capacity magazines?” asked Hubert Williams, president of the Police Foundation and chairman of the National Law Enforcement Partnership to Prevent Gun Violence.They issued their plea as the House of Representatives condemned the mass shooting and expressed condolences to the families and friends of the 12 people killed and wishes for the recovery of the 58 injured. The Rev. Jesse Jackson, visiting Aurora on Thursday, called for renewal of the federal assault weapons ban that expired in 2004.

    “We cannot be ... hiding behind the 2nd Amendment to justify weapons that the writers of the Constitution never imagined,” Jackson said in an interview. Asked about the resistance in Congress to gun control legislation, he cited the difficulty in passing civil rights legislation. “You have to be persistent. It was tough, but we were right,” he said.
