    coming for all their guns are many times the same ones who think that the gumbvments has the power to deport over 12 million undocumented people.

    However, there is no denying there are sentiments expressed that no one outside of the military or law enforcement should have access to guns. period.

    I would like to see included in the discussion of gun safety and regulations the current state of law enforcement training and militarization.  I am glad this was brought up in the diary, but I think there is a general misconception as to the average LEO's level of proficiency and required training.

      Beween Homeland Security and all the other post 911 measures that have been put in place, there is some serious military hardware out there among some police departments.

      Add in something new - the increasing use of drones domestically. We're not talking Hellfire missiles yet, but who knows?

      Oddly enough, it seems like the right wing is upset about this, maybe even more than the left. I suspect that would change if Obama were not president...
