    Ha! Unlike your claim that the general public has the "right" to carry the same weapons as the police, there is evidence the sun rises in the East. Otherwise, you would have sought out an attorney to make your challenge to the courts.

    why would I bring a challenge-I can own every weapon I want. I have better stuff than the police in my area and while I should be able to own a machine gun, I don't have much use for one. But I suspect the lawsuits are in the work

    do you realize how silly your stock arguments are

    You either appeal to mediocrity by claiming that the "public" wants something or you whine that the courts did not overturn a law that no longer exists. You have never come close to actually making an argument as to why the second amendment should not recognize the right of most civilians to own the same defensive civilian weaponry that civilian law enforcement officers are issued

    I suspect its because you cannot

    How about you don't have the same job they do. Nor do you face the same challenges or threats. We really don't treat that which s different exactly the same.

    On top of that, civilians do not have the same ROE as officers. Officers are paid to stop crime. Civilians are not.

    police are almost always prepared when they get into a gun fight. most other civilians are never the instigators. those instigating violence have an edge meaning most of us should have even better tools than the cops

    unfortunately for you I know far more about this subject than you can comprehend. Most police gun fights happen when the police instigate action. its rare for criminals to start shooting at unsuspecting police. Most police shootings involve the police responding to a crime call or a felony stop or conducting a raid--in other words the cops are in "condition red" before the shooting starts. shopkeepers and homeowners facing armed robbers or pedestrians facing muggers are never the instigators

    ask Caine or Goshin-they will tell you I am correct.
