If 10 round magazines are good enough for UNTRAINED civilians to defend themselves, they aught to be MORE THAN good enough for TRAINED law enforcement professionals. A lot of police officers in New York (and elsewhere) think strict gun control is great. It makes them feel safer. (as if their job is about THEM and not the public which they are supposed to serve) Did you know that in New York, RETIRED police officers can KEEP their service pistols with MORE THAN 10 round magazines in their homes??... that is a CLEAR violation of "equal protection under the law". Why would they need their service pistol while they are NO LONGER OF SERVICE TO THE PUBLIC??? For sentimental reasons? (as if only THEIR guns/magazines have sentimental value) Police shouldn't need more than 10 rounds if that's what the civilians are limited to. Police don't need to outgun an individual civilian (that's kind of the point of 2A). Police are a FORCE with strength in numbers. Not just strength in numbers from other police officers, but strength in numbers from the support of people in the COMMUNITIES which they serve. The day the community is NOT on the police's side IS THE DAY THE POLICE ARE IN THE WRONG! But that doesn't matter because not only are their weapons NOT being limited like ours... THEY HAVE BEEN MILITARIZING THE POLICE! I FIRMLY BELIEVE that if us gun rights activists pressed the issue of EQUAL DISARMAMENT of police as well as civilians, we would have A LOT of success because we would also have liberals who don't like guns on our side for that issue. THAT is how you get these anti-gun police chiefs, DA's, and politicians to shut up; Shove the gun control down their throats! I'm sick of us gun owners having to convince them to let us keep our rights... Let's turn the tables! Police in Britain, Ireland, New Zealand and Iceland pretty much don't even carry guns, so this is not as radical of an idea as it might sound like.
