Sounds fair to me. After all, these gun laws are supposed to make people safer, and if there is less danger then there is no need for LEO's to have as many bullets.

My question( and there may be a reason).
Why are they going to amend it for "active and retired" officers.
Why do the retired get to have hi caps but no other citizens?
Just curious?

Because a lot of retired officers in big cities in this country still work after they have retired and these jobs require police powers. Hope this helps......

Active is an easy one.... Even when the ban went into place in the early 90s the police were still able to have high capacity magazines. I know some wouldn't agree but you always want the police to have more rounds than the bad guys.... \:\)

I wonder how many anti-gun LEO's would still be anti-gun if they could only carry while on duty.

Gator so let me get this straight a retired LEO has more rights to have a hi cap clip because he may work in a job that may need "police powers". Say a security detail, so a retired police officer and a retired navy seal both working a security detail to protect a CEO of a bank. The retired police officer can carry a one but the navy seal can not. I am sorry that is bs. If you amend it to allow retired LEO then you just opened it to anyone. Now i disagree on the ban altogether but there is no reason to have an exemption for retired people. If you want to use your justification it should have an exemption for anyone that is lisc and trained to provide security.

I realy don't see any differance in a retired policeman and me or even a off duty for that goes. Don't tell me about training for there are alot of people who have more training than most police.
