Why is it that in the hands of a citizen the rifle is considered an "assault weapon", and the same rifle in the hands of LE is considered a "patrol rifle"?

When the military and the police turn theirs in, I'll turn mine in.

Citizens are usually in need of superior firepower than are the police (they already have it). Bad guys attack citizens who they HOPE are unarmed. In comparison, very few bad guys attack LE. By the time the police arrive at the scene of a firearm involved crime, the shooting is over. Hopefully the law abiding citizen has won.

I don't even own an "assault rifle", but am seriously considering buying one just so some government folks will come to confiscate it.

Is this 3 card Monty? How can a ban be ineffective but a buyback is? If "Assault" weapons don't contribute significantly to gun violence in the country why is either be considered short of the fact this administration wants to take them?

They think this is sneaky?

That's the new phrase for confiscation. How can they buy back what they never owned?

They said the same thing about magazines; they will all need to be confiscated for the legislation to be effective.

No more grandfathering whatsoever this time around, folks.

I'll make it even easier. Let the military and police keep their guns.

But if the government wants me to give up my guns, I'll comply. Just as soon as the Secret Service gives up their guns. I think obama should set the example by ordering his protection group to disarm themselves. You know, for the children.

I'll do one better:

Why is it that in the hands of a citizen it is considered an "Assault Weapon with high capacity ammunition clips" (their words) and in the hands of LEO / .gov, its "Personal Defense Weapon with standard mags"? Not to mention the absurd amount of ammo requested for purchase by the DHS - should any of us order a fraction of that we would end up under the microscope for such a large purchase.

There are several clips available -- but this one gets right to it...
