    The military deployed to foreign soil is a totally different argument.

    But the tradition in the US (before SWAT) was that the police were armed with the same weapons available to civilians. If the police are wearing body armor and carrying automatic weapons and riding around in armored vehicles, are they still police or are they in fact military units deployed on American soil?

    So yes, I think the rules that apply to the civilian world in general should apply to the weapons the police can carry.

    How do you interpret my statements, quoted below?


    :banghead:

    I'm smart enough to understand that one user's responses aren't indicative of the rest of the forum.

    I'm going to try my best to help, and I'm still going to operate on the presumption that most people are intelligent enough to receive it.

    From the report on Virginia Tech shooting (Cho used 15 rd G19 and 10 round P22 magazines):

    ‎"The panel also considered whether the previous federal Assault Weapons Act of 1994 that banned 15-round magazines would have made a differ- ence in the April 16 incidents. The law lapsed after 10 years, in October 2004, and had banned clips or magazines with over 10 rounds. The panel concluded that 10-round magazines that were legal would have not made much difference in the incident. Even pistols with rapid loaders could have been about as deadly in this situation."

    No surprises here (other than their honesty in evaluating the tragedy).

    This is a very accurate statement of the facts.
