How many bullets do you need? Double Standard

Forums - Politics Discussion - How many bullets do you need? Double Standard

It seems in their zeal to get gun laws passed new york has neglected to make exemptions for police officers to carry more than 7 rounds. so now they are looking to ammend the law, but what i find intersting is the reason given:

"State Senator Eric Adams, a former NYPD Captain, told us he's going to push for an amendment next week to exempt police officers from the high-capacity magazine ban. In his words, "You can't give more ammo to the criminals"


So how many rounds should legal gun owners be allowed to carry? I mean we can't give the criminals more bullets than us? And i thought by making it illegal it wouldn't be a problem and criminals would not have these high capacity clips. If the doesn't keep them out of the hands of criminals what is the actual point except to limit legal gun holders rights? Just seems like a double standard if the cops (who most likely work in pairs or have back up and possibly bullet proof vests) feel they shouldn't be out gunned by criminals why should ordinary citezens?

Okay, so they fucked up this one part. But banning high capacity magazines is still a brilliant idea. I mean, no one normal person possibly have the technological wherewithal to make a box with a spring in it.

as many as it takes to take down an assailant. cops are shooting to kill in most cases anyway.

Police should be left out of the plan. As should Military ..Duh!

I LOL at the idea of civilians and criminals getting into firefights in the streets. I support really comicly long banana clips that can only hold 1 bullet.

Getting an XBOX One for me is like being in a bad relationship but staying together because we have kids. XBone we have 20000+ achievement points, 2+ years of XBL Gold and 20000+ MS points. I think its best we stay together if only for the MS points.

Nintendo Treehouse is what happens when a publisher is confident and proud of its games and doesn't need to show CGI lies for five minutes.

You really must stop defending these silly ideals of personal liberty and responsibility and just accept that The State Knows Best.

Freedom is slavery.

Note that this only applies if it's a Western country doing it. In the Middle East, it is imperative that citizens have the right to live their lives free of governmental tyranny and violence.
