    In Kalifornistan LEOs are exempt from not only the 10rd magazine limit, but can buy handguns not on the "not too unsafe" approved handgun roster. Gun stores actually have "LEO sales only" cases.:fire:

    You need to record those phone calls and play them for the local TV stations! A video of the reckless driver would be great also but the main problem here is this corrupt mind-set that they are above the law.

    Mirule fired at felons who would have been a clear and immediate threat if they got to cover, or would have been a probable threat to others if they got away. This is not like Gardner in Tennessee or the FBI raid in California where an unarmed man running away was shot by an agent who mistakenly believed he had fired on another agent. The Miami bank robbers were heavily armed and it was more or less one continuous gun fight.

    No they are not superior, and most would not even go there in a discussion. The shame of it all, is that the NY Governor and his cronies have created this mess. It's a pathetic abuse of power and the manner in which it was pushed through shows the ignoble character of the anti-crowd in that state.

    Instead of being angry at the police - New York residents need to remember everyone who voted for this when they run for re-election. If they don't, things are pretty much what they are.

    for some folks its easier to blame the police for enforcing the law of the land than it is to look in the mirror as to why these laws got enacted and by whom.

    That would be easier if the police didn't squel like speared pigs when they have to live under the same rules as the Citizens.

    If they insisted that the same laws apply to them, they'd win rather a lot of good will and fellowship.

    I won't hold my breath....

    If that were true then missisippi would legalize slavery.
    Only federal law prevents them.

    I'm an LEO down in Texas, and yeah I'd complain long and loud if someone tried to limit my mag capacity. I'd also do that if they just tried to do it non-LEO's only. There are a very few RANK AND FILE cops that are rabid gun control supporters. As you climb the food chain this changes dramatically, as most chiefs and sheriffs are politicians first and LEO's last.

    Let us not forget....if the police get an exemption its because of thier lobbying power the vast majority of cops and cop brass making noise...

    Where is your lobbying power? Is it the nra which only has 5% of gun owners as members?

    WHEN THE NRA STARTS POINTING FINGERS AT POLITICIANS, THOSE POLITICIANS SEE BY THE LOW MEMBERSHIP NUMBERS THAT THE NRA ISNT AS BAD AS THEY THOUGHT....FACE IT, 95% OF GUN OWNERS DO NOT SUPPORT THE NRA....

    Now I'm really curious. What evidence leads you to believe this?

    Hmmm I seem to sort of very vaguely remember something in Federal Law about an "Equal Protection Clause".

    Could challenges to the LEO exemptions be brought up this way ? ? ?
