I think it was obvious that was going to happen. Thankfully here there is no mag restrictions for police or civilians.

I am disgusted, it's despicable, yet not surprising.

ALL of us in LE MUST remember we are citizens FIRST AND FOREMOST, and act that way both ON and off duty.
Apparently MANY LEO's at all levels of government today have forgotten this!

As an LEO I would raise H*** if they reduced my round count. You don't handicap those who you hire to put their lives on the line to protect you.

Luckily the federal AWB was shot down. I was stressing about it for a few months there.

Can't say the same for a handful of states who passed their own version though.... Sorry NY

They should not reduce anyones 'round count' (magazine size). Like I said, we are citizens first, cops second. ANY LAW PASSED SHOULD APPLY TO EVERYONE, that way those in government would not be exempt from this STUPIDITY!!!

I physically can't agree with you more, because I agree with you 100%. This hypocrisy has gone on long enough.

Because they were in such a hurry to push this through, the first exemption went to the LEO's because their service weapons were illegal until they added them! Idiots; Simple Dinks of the highest caliber! The exemption he just handed out to the LEO's is a direct affront on the citizens; I dont care who you are, rights are universal, not based on a badge or Military Service, thats just BS to divide and conquer us.

I do not see the problem with the exemption. LEOs, ex-LEOs, Retired Military, CCW permit holders, normal law abiding citizens chould be exempted from this statute.

It should apply equally to all convicted Felons and those who use a handgun in the commision of a crime.
