There's a police chiefs' organization that always shows up about now saying 'dat right' ~ thinking that the citizenry will be deprived of their right to firearms but the cops will get whatever they want.

Looks like New York messed up big time.

Bet it's far more difficult to write an exception to this law than it was to get the law passed.

Maybe the cops would like to go to the Federal courts to complain about this. Tell Scalia 'dis ain't fair judge, not fair'

what;s good for the goose is good for the gander. if the police want to make the case for high capacity mags, the same should apply to responsible law abiding citizens.

I understand the importance of instituting a new policy on mandating the limits of bullets that a regular citizen can possess, but as a matter of fact the bad guys are not going to follow this law

His second point negates the first.

News to all law enforcement:

You ARE regular citizens.

There is NO “law enforcement community.”

Only in a police state, are you as elevated as you now presume to be above the citizens and entitled to powers your now imagine.

It’s time to start a Traitors to the Constitution list.

Anyone who votes for a bill like this one is on it. Any gov’t official, like these cops here, who complains about the lack of a double standard, goes on it.

It’s time to start shunning these people.

Are you defending their wish for a double standard?

Let me give you a clue - citizens should be equal under the law. The lack of royalty was one on of the key differences between the U.S.A. and the European countries our Founders had escaped from.

There’s nothing special about a cop with respect to their rights.

You want to try to argue otherwise, jump right in. FReepers will listen to a well-reasoned argument. Right now, you’ve got bupkis, other than whining. Unimpressive.

Oh goody,another FR cop bashing thread.

Should be interesting.

How could you possibly defend this double standard?

I'd really like to know how you can justify extending this or any other exemption to ex-cops.

this is just a return to the good old days!

Yes indeed. Just add transfats to the donuts and larger than 16 oz drinks and the mission will be complete.

The dogs will be safer too.

I, on the other hand, am quite pleased. Cops should never be exempted from gun control laws.

There are almost one hundred-thousand registered handguns in the county in which I live.

One would be hard-pressed to document an incident in which one of those handguns was used in the commission of a crime.

(It seems that the Progressives consider the criminal element to be their allies and the law-abiding to be an impediment to their dreams of power.)

JUst saying.

IMHO

At least we don’t have to worry about Cuomo in 2016. He pretty much shot himself in the foot on the national stage.

Are you going to even attempt to defend the cops wanting a double standard here? Do you think there is something wrong with cops wanting high-capacity magazines for defense against groups of armed criminals, but many of the same cops want to deny private citizens the same magazines in case a group of armed criminals kicks down their front door in a home invasion robbery attempt?

There has long been a five round limit on semis for hunting in NY. My cousin hunts with an M1 “tanker” and has been asked to show his clip a few timeswhen he encounters ahunting enforcement officer.

—thanks—I will be curious to see clarified that one abides by the law by only putting seven cartridges in any given presently owned “clip” or “magazine”—

I’m not going to defend the cops because I have absolutely no opinion on the matter.

None.

My post was in response to the dog wise crack and I should have made that clear.

Peace !

Really.

You have no opinion on the cops demanding a double-standard - that they should have large capacity magazines when civilians should not, when both face attack by gangs of multiple criminals - civilians in the form of home invasion robberies, which happen more and more often nowadays.

Well, guess what? I think the cops get bashed too much on FR, but I really don't give a rat's ass about what you think about it, given you are incapable of giving honest criticism of cops when they are wrong. You are just a pom-pom waver for law enforcement.
