So, you're saying the police can use only lever or bolt action rifles, right?<quoted text>
Any rifle that isn't a lever action or bolt action SHOULD be defined as an assault rifle. That was easy, problem solved.
Or, you're saying the police exist for some other reason than to protect us, and it is vital for that reason for them to be significantly better armed than those members of the masses not included in the governing elite, right?
If the police need a weapon to protect me, why don't I need that weapon, too? After all, I have every right to protect myself. The police merely determine what instrument is necessary for my protection.
You don't have to answer this. We know the Democrats are trying to install a police state where the citizenry has a gun held to its head to ensure compliance with whatever the elite government class demands for themselves.
