    If that were indeed the case, then the proposed ban would be completely unacceptable to me.

    However, I'll wait to hear from a proponent what is meant by assault weapon.

    are you a NY City police officer? If not, your question is irrelevant.

    no, I am an expert on law enforcement rules of engagement, police weapons and tactics and I asked you a question that was based on facts

    anybody here can claim to be anything they want to claim to be ...so what? That also is irrelevant.

    A police officer has equipment because they are performing a specific job or duty for the peoples government.

    The obvious sarcasm with truth at its center is flying a mile over your head. I was paraphrasing the thought that comes out of the mouths of far too many right wing sycophants and toadies of the gun lobby.

    so at what point does a magazine limit violate the second amendment

    and if the second amendment was designed to make sure most citizens had the same weapon as the average infantryman, it seems that common police weapons designed not for war but for civilian law enforcement would also be covered.

    since you are on a gun thread are you willing to offer an opinion as to what the second amendment protects and at what point the idiocy of Cuomo 30 rounds then 10 rounds then 7 rounds then 5 rounds then 3 rounds (what the turd bloomberg wants) violates our rights

    I'm tired of this stupid comment. Guns have one purpose and one purpose only. Killing. That's it. Everything else, clubs, hammers, knives, cars, etc, all have other purposes. Those purposes make them valuable and useful. There is no parallel, until guns can provide something besides violence. Stop with this stupidity.

    The OP's idea solves exactly zero problems.
