The simple answer is NO, the police should not carry those weapons either. Perhaps the swat teams or emergency response teams, never the standard police! As far as Machetes? Get real will ya... Times are changing fast, and also the competency of people who possess these items is. 1 of my friends said the reason they have an assault type weapon is because they can. I said simply, don't cry when it goes wrong... It can happen. I live where the gun totting soccer mom got killed by her husband with her OWN gun! I don't hear much out of that end of town anymore, the danger hit home!!! They got bit in the butt, beware, things do bite people back! I also know a gun collector who gets DRUNK nightly and lives by LIMBAUGH, guess what, he will be the next victim, I hope not as he is my tenant, but he really may well be because of his mouth and unreal thought process! Be glad ya are alive and live for tomorrow, don't make lots of enemies, make friends!
furbud I'm confused, this post is mostly gibberish. What are you trying to say?
Set the record straight, do you support the second amendment or do you think it's alright to restrict the constitutional rights of millions upon millions of honest law abiding citizens by banning certain guns and magazines?
It's gotta be one or the other, there really isn't any in between, you either think it's OK to ban guns or you don't.
I support the 2nd amendment which is the right to protect my family and others... YES! BTW...It does NOT take an assault type weapon to do that and my post was not gibberish, simply common sense and everyday logic for most people. Lets get 1 thing straight, when those amendments were created, they had single shotguns if that, never in their wildest dreams would they have thought of a AK 47 assualt type weapon or the likes, as if they had they would have included them as an exemption because of the danger they may pose, more so the destruction that they create with UNWORTHY users.! Like the NUTS that abuse (I did not say USE) them today! Of course, Respectfully as always....
