    Re: Gun Control

    I am still waiting for Haymarket to tell me why I should not be able to own the weapons I referenced-the 17 shot MP 9mm (the same pistol as issued by the Cincinnati PD) and the Rock River DEA carbine (sans the three shot burst device)

    You have not presented anything other than you own word. Your Marine corps was explained to you, your interpretation of it was smashed and trashed, crushed and flushed as not meaning what you think it means.

    Again, the people you seem to envy and want to copy their weaponry do NOT have weapons like that because of any Second Amendment right to them. They have those weapons because they are performing jobs which the peoples government has determined is necessary for them to perform their jobs. The Second Amendment - which covers YOUR RIGHT to have weapons - has not a damn thing to do with what weapons police and others have. Not a damn thing to do with it.

    For you to argue that you have a right to something because other people use such things as tools on their jobs is ridiculous and without any foundation. And you have never shown any other than you own envy and want.

    I never gave you an opinion pro or con on what you should own or not own regarding any particular weapon. I have not taken a position on that so for me to be expected to tell you why you should or should not own some weapon is ludicrous.

    You mean by providing documentation as opposed to opinion from gun nuts!

    the only real gun nuts are the fanatic haters of conservative gun owners who have no clue about what they rant about and their only goal is to harass gun owners.

    tell me catawba, what is your experience with firearms

    Your premise is both false and and an oxymoron. One cannot be a civilian police officer.
