    Why would police be exempt from the gun laws?

    Oh yeah, because many of them are mentally unstable.

    This is a good thing.

    Heh - it also prevents them apparently from responding to gun shootings:

    Cuomo’s new gun law does not exempt New York cops, could prevent police from responding to school shootings

    http://dailycaller.com/2013/01/17/cuomos-new-gun-law-does-not-exempt-new-york-cops-could-prevent-police-from-responding-to-school-shootings/

    A New York lawmaker says that the state’s recently passed gun control law stunningly fails to include any exemptions for law enforcement officers, and technically prohibits police from ever bringing guns on school grounds or possessing extended ammo magazines.

    The NY SAFE Act, which was championed and signed into law by Democratic Gov. Andrew Cuomo, bans all magazines that hold more than seven bullets and pre-1994 high capacity magazines, and prohibits the carrying of guns on school grounds.

    Do you even live in the US as a citizen? Or even on this continent? Don't you live in like China or some place?

    What the fuck does any of this have to do with YOU? That you obsessively post here about US issues that don't involve you in any way? Please respond.

    Cops break laws all the time and get away with it. I don't see how this would be any different. They could just respond, take care of the situation, and fill out a few forms...voila, case closed. icon_wink.gif

    By the way, what does it matter if someone from canada comments on US issues? I suspect that if you liked his opinions, your attitude would be quite different.

    No, southbeach. I think ArtDeco is correct on this one. When Riddler posts complaints and jabs about our gun laws and he's a Canadian citizen, which has stricter gun laws than ours, but never does anything about his home country's laws, then he's apparently just trolling.

    He doesn't do anything about our country's laws either, so I really don't give a fuck what he posts.

    Well, I sorta do actually...it's kinda entertaining to watch people think they can change the world with one forum post.

    In a Rush???

    On average we have a major episode where someone goes into a public place and murders complete strangers with assault weaponry every few months
    You want them to wait until the next one happens?
    You would rather them wait until all the kids who were murdered rot a little more in their graves?

    Oh I know .... you'd rather wait until the American public loses that WTF? vomit in the back of the throat disgust like they did every other time when this happens.... just like the NRA is waiting for?

    Sorry this time is different This was So repugnant and so obviously ridiculous in the blatant need to get rid of the Assault weapons that this post is silly in the scheme of things
