  •  The 2nd Amendment covers all civilian use (6+ / 0-)

    Automatic weapons have been restricted to military use only.  The police don't use automatic weapons, no law enforcement does.  Thus, the 2nd doesn't cover full auto.

    This is also why I've been calling for guns like the AR-15 to be banned from the police.  Want to call the AR-15 a military weapon and ban it?  Then it has to be banned from all law enforcement, so it's no longer a civilian weapon.

    •  you can go ahead and get rid of their mraps too (0+ / 0-)

      while you're at it.  Or any other number of large military equipment purchases law enforcement has been getting lately.

      Its gotten seriously ridiculous!

      We can NOT pretend to be a democracy when we have secret laws, with secret courts, with secret verdicts, with secret prisoners, in secret prisons!
