    Devil, I'm wondering if you have an answer to the assertion above. I wasn't aware of that information, since I was just a county cop and never had much to do with the Feds... but it does make one wonder, when combined with some of the things you've said that make me wonder if you had much to do with ordinary street criminals.

    I'm not calling you a liar, but I think some further explanation would be in order.

    I was a DEA Special Agent & graduated from Basic Agent class # 4 in May, 1974. If the Debate Politics administration wants verification of this they can contact me & I would be happy to provide proof & or DP can contact DEA itself Drug Enforcement Administration Home. ( I will be happy to contact DEA & authorize release of my info to DP Forum admin) If you want proof, go through the DP forum admin...End of discussion.

    I agree with the BS part, but you can own any automatic weapon you want, as long as you possess the proper license. I think the only requirements are that it has to be man-portable and can't have a recoil system. I think it has to be under a certain bore size, but I'm not sure about that one.

    Except to make sure that society as a whole can stop the government from taking away our rights.

    Declaration of Independence shows that we have that right. Weather the current government believes it or not.

    If a Mod/Admin I trust wants to check my bonafides, I'm fine with that. Otherhandwise, I'm not giving out personal info on DP's forums, since I still live in the same county I LEO'ed in. Given how hysterical some posters get on here, I don't care to be that easily located.

    Good enough for me, thank you.


    I've been trying to account for the differences in our perceptions about certain things; criminals and criminality most especially.

    I suppose the fact that you were a Fed and I was County, you're liberal and I'm more-or-less conservative is probably explanation enough. Our experiences would have been very different I expect.
