I think it’s fair that whatever the police can carry, we can carry.
Actually it’s how a lot of people actually decided on their handguns. They decided if they were good enough for their local police, or what the fbi thought was good, it would be good enough for them. And same with the ammo, they wouldn’t be a “gun nut” for using ammo hotter than what the police themselves determined to be adequate but not overkill.
But second, who is anyone in government to determine what your personal security requirements are for your self-defense? Who are they to know you don’t need a certain size magazine? These are the same people that pass laws saying you can’t sue the government for not protecting you.
and i think it's fair that whatever the military can carry, we ought to be able to carry... and when i say this in discussion with gun control advocates, well--it drives them mad!
