First off, doesn’t any admission that a failure to exempt police officers from magazine size restrictions is a problem with the hurried-through anti-gun legislation (because, to quote one state senator, “you can’t give more ammo to the criminals”) suggest that the law itself is intended to make sure that only law-abiding citizens have less cartridge capacity in their firearms than do criminals? And given that the police are second-responders (the individual being the first responder) — and are under no legalobligation to protect you — isn’t this law essentially a means to creating a stratified populace in which police and criminals are both better armed than law-abiding citizens exercising their right to bear arms under the second amendment?
That seems troubling…
