    No bill has even come close to suggesting the "police" would not be able to have assualt-style weapons.
    How do you reconcile that with the diary's title?
    RETAINING ASSAULT WEAPONS HAS NO RATIONAL BASIS
    What you really mean is that retaining assault weapons in the hands of the peasant class has no rational basis, while retaining assault weapons in the hands of the samurai class does have a rational basis.

    However, I reject the idea that we should have a samurai class with rights superior to the people they supposedly serve and protect.  

    Even if we ultimately decide to make exceptions for the samurai class in our laws, it should never go without saying that they will get an exception to every law that is passed.

    And no, police officers in the US will never support a law that prevents them from keeping private semiautomatic arms at home or bearing semiautomatic arms when they are off duty.

    Your end of the Constitution is sinking.
