    Three of us here at the office are ex marines and have our own little club, for lack of a better term. We were talking about that incident in New York and concluded that those cops must be incapable of hitting the proverbial broad side of a barn. While we certainly felt sorry for the guy killed and the injured, how can you possibly shoot over 50 rounds at people who aren't running away from you and only kill one person? I don't mean to be unfeeling but it doesn't make any sense and I don't believe for a min that they were aiming to maime!....that's only in the movies.

    Which illustrates the point that government officials need "assault weapons" even less than civilians.

    As pro-law-enforcement as I am, I generally detest double-standards, and find it unreasonable to ask the public to give up any kind of gun until both the criminals and government agents give up theirs.

    To be honest, I'd prefer a MP5, and a Barrett BMG.50 along with the gernades . . .

    @Ireland...love the pic...only just noticed that you posted it. What is that from? Fantasy though the pic may be, the slope reminds me of my arts farm albeit with a different farmhouse....makes me a bit homesick!

    Same here! :)

    Seriously, though, a pistol is ideal for a home and a short-barrelled M-4/16, or Krinkov (3-shot bust) is best for suburban or rural defense. Too bad civilians can't own triple-shot guns. Barretts and MP5s are a little too pricey...:)

    Only in America:
    President is shot with a .22 cal. pistol
    Anti-gun crowd goes crazy.
    Congress bans assault weapons ( Usi-ak, etc.) that handy.
    Congress limits the number of bullets in pistol clip to 10.
    Hell, we don't need them anyway, we are much better shots then the cops-we practice more-we shoot a lot more people than they do.
    lol

    it's still a better situation than in several european countries where guns are out-and-out banned to the average citizen.

    I live near Detroit,MI
    I own 30 guns.
    I have a CCW- carry concealed weapon.
    I will not hesitate to defend myself or family if the time ever comes.
    MI now has the Castle law-I do not have to run & hid any more.
    As you can see I am not lol any more-I am very serious.
