    Many gun companies are announcing new policies to limit sales to law-enforcement agencies in anti-gun states to only the items that the regular citizens in that state are allowed to own.

    Position 1: Law enforcement officers have a very difficult and demanding job that can be very unsafe. They should be able to have access to any and every firearm product they need. Police should be exempt.

    Position 2: Law enforcement is an arm of the state and should never be allowed to be more powerful than the general public. They should only have access to the same firepower that the citizenry has access to. Police should have the same limits.

    Position 2. They should not be exempt. We the citizens need to be just as armed as our government. If a state feels like they need to limit magazine capacities for "the greater good" then by golly, so should the police for the same reason. What if a cop goes rogue? Then they have an advantage over a citizen who only has 7 rounds

    I agree, in fact they are in less danger, they ain't the ones who have to face the home invader, they only have to report what happens

    seems like one did go rogue in California, just a short while back. LEO's are not any different than anyone else. they can have the same mental illness' as the rest of us. they will bleed the same blood as we do when shot. everyone deserves the same consideration.

    if the citizens are limited to certain restrictions in a state, then so should LE in that state.

    You just have to laugh at the Left Wing New York Officials. These decedents of the Witch Burners and their new gun laws? It seems these recipients of weak DNA are already changing their new guns are evil laws.
    They have discovered there are no 7 shot magazine. So, they will now allow 10 shot magazines. However it will be illegal to load more than 7 rounds in the 10 shot Mags.
    New York will now be faced with a new challenge. New York must now find civil service employees that can count to 7 .:eek:

    Position 3: Police are an unwanted and brutish gang that need to be defunded immediately to protect the people from unwonten violence..

    We need law enforcement. People today have a hard time policing themselves.

    Position 2

    Cops face less danger than the general public and special rights for Cops violates "Equal Protection" under the law.

    Partial Position 3... Immediately defund and dismiss every officer not currently working for and under the Constitutional authority of a County Sherrif.

    Sherrifs offices would need to expand so the State and City Cops worth keeping could transfer there services to fall beneath the Jurisdiction of the only accountable Top Cops in the Nation.

    In Merry old England in the 19th century a board showed where the officer was at any time. Police were called Constables. If an officer was walking his beat the board was marked C.O.P. after his name. Constable on Patrol.
    We do not want our police disarmed. The American civil police are uniquely American. In other nations the police are Federal enforcing local laws. The American Police are a product of local militia answering to the local elected governments. This with all its faults is a very good system of enforcement.:)

    I disagree. I think it does more harm than good. War on drugs. Lack of prosecution of violent criminals. Need I say more?

    You're right, look at all the cases of racism and police brutality within police forces, they definitely need to be trimmed down.

    So, you are pinning things on the police that other people are responsible for?

    The "war on drugs" has been going on since the early 20th century, but it was Eisenhower's administration that defined the parameters - the police didn't start it...

    Last I checked, police are not authorized to prosecute anyone. That would be up to the District Attorney/State/County Prosecutor.

    However, I do agree with the overall sentiment that police should be restricted to whatever means the civilian population is. I also feel it should also be applied to federal law enforcement as well.

    Be very careful in your condemnation of local police. The World Socialist movement dating to Karl Marx has encouraged the disbanding of local police forces.
    In every nation where the Communist movement has prevailed the local police and citizens were disarmed. The nation is then controlled by one central government and Federal police only.
    Blaming local police for a law that you do not like really requires more thought and study.:)
