****I asked why police officers should be allowed to have so-called high-capacity magazines if they have no defensive value.****
The first time someone runs their revolver dry and is murdered, the MSM will say that the person should have just given up, then they MIGHT still be alive.
The first time a cop runs his revolver dry, and is murdered, there will be hell to pay as the MSM will demand more gun controls on the general public.
Me? When the smoke clears, I want to have a full 30 rd magazine still in reserve! Just in case.
In my old days as a tank gunner, I had 63 rounds available for my primary weapon, which was essentially a single-shot semiautomatic. The secondary weapon was the coaxial .30 caliber or 7.62mm machinegun mounted coaxially with the main gun, and known thereby as the co-ax. For which we had 6000 rounds in the turret tray and an extra 4000 rounds in ammo cans for a reload.
Those old habits die hard. And in my case, haven't died out yet.
