    actually non LEOs are more likely to be attacked. You see cops are well armed, and have radios that can summon backup rather quickly. When cops get into gun fights with bad guys, in many cases the cops are ready for a fight and often instigate the action. Other civilians almost never instigate the conflict but rather its the criminals who attack.

    if anything, homeowners who are usually reacting to a home invasion robbery or (like the case of blacks running amok after the rodney king case and terrorizing Korean shop owners) riots, ought to have heavier firepower than the cops who have body armor, the element of surprise and back up on their side

    I'm saying you are repeating talking points that have no basis in reality. Some of the most uninformed drivel I've ever heard, BTW, a revolver with a speed load clip can be reloaded in about the same amount of time as a semi-auto, you have NO CLUE what you are talking about.

    I hope one of the recommendations to come from Biden's group is to require the registration of guns in the same way we require the registration of cars.

    I certainly don't see any reason why that can't be required but I'm not going to hold my breath waiting for it.

    I'm not sure our society has evolved to the point where this could actually pass, but it certainly would cut down on the number of guns getting into the hands of criminals, and provide a way of tracking the guns back to the person that sold guns to criminals.

    Again with the "evolved" talk. It's not about "societal evolution", what part of it's a right DON'T you understand? I don't have to register a right, and the government has no business knowing what I have, NONE. As a matter of fact the "gun registry" is anything but "societal evolution" it's an old idea that historically leads to bans and confiscations, then they censure citizens. Just realize you have no standing in our constitutional republic.

    Everytime they talk about progress or evolution, they're talking about an old failed idea.

    And they don't even realize it. Giving more to the government based upon earnings, and giving a part of property(progressive tax/property tax) goes all the way back to the time of the despots, then to the kings, nothing new. Barring certain arms from "The masses" is an ancient idea, communism and socialism(government control of business) has been practiced in some way for ages before Marx and others put it into theory, nothing new.

    The cowboy interpretation of the 2nd amendment is what I'm talking about evolving.

    i personally dont mind a registration so much with very strict guidlines for it but why and how would it "certainly" cut down on guns getting into criminal hands, i think it would have zero impact on that.
