Ah, why do cops have handguns? Ah, "Assault Rifles are already banned in the U.S. To be an "assault rifle" it must be fully automatic and fully automatic are all but banned (special permit required)!<quoted text>
Why would I put up such a sign? Unless you have some kind of huge reason for having a hand gun, they are not allowed here. Assault weapons are just NOT allowed. For anyone no matter the reason. Carbines for hunters only and you'd look pretty funny walking the street with that. Drug dealers and gangs have illegal hand guns, sure, but they mostly use them to kill each other off. That's a good thing, thugs are rubbed out and look how much we save on court and prison costs.
You is, it is all about what the definition of "is" is! You seem to think a rifle with a bayonet lug on it is more deadly than one without! You also seem to think a rifle with a pistol grip is more deadly as is one that has a thirty round magazine is more deadly than one with three ten round magazines!
Jacques, YOU are a flaming bigot as you hate something base on appearance and not substance.
