    I'd say no.

    and police are not heavily armed for self defense as much as they are armed to fight known criminal elements. You will notice that they only carry a pistol, and have a shotgun inside the squad car. Anything else will be in the trunk, as they don't expect to need that kind of firepower all the time.
    But when they do need it, they should have it.
    There are no restrictions on drug runners and bank robbers, you know...
    1) since criminals cannot own any gun legally, how is denying them to honest people going to change that?

    2) If cops might need that firepower (and cops have radios, partners, backups, SWAT TEAMS to call on) don't non Police civilians (Remember cops are civilians and their "right" to engage criminals is as restricted as yours when it comes to deadly force) have a right to the same weapons as well?

    3) Honest people don't cause problems with some types of guns-why do people believe that people who don't engage in murder with bolt action rifles or semi auto shotguns are suddenly going to be dangerous with a semi auto rifle. If someone INTENDS massacres and the government has somehow made all 15 shot magazines disappear, won't the perpetrator just carry extra magazines or guns?

    Right?
    I fail to see how this pertains to the topic at hand. I'm assuming this is your attempt at derailing this thread and turning it into "why liberals suck"?

    Worrying about increased gun control is entirely rational. OMGOBAMA'SGONNATAKEALLOURGUUUUUUUNS! isn't.

    So... even though he openly supports such things, he won't sign any gun bans into law?

    The issue is whether it is rational for gun owners to plan as if he will ban the future sale of some types of guns, ammunition and magazines. Confiscating presently owned guns would cause a blood bath and get alot of people killed.

    No, I was paying attention. Sanders made a comment about the right's comical fear of gun banning. That pertains to the topic. You responded by talking about healthcare and abortion, things which have nothing to do with gun control. Maybe you weren't paying attention. Partisan blinders will do that.

    Absolutely. Obama's not stupid enough to attempt that. At least let's hope not.
