When we switched to Semi auto's they would not even let us buy our 686's....The excuse was that they did not want more guns on the street.
Just so we are clear... It is okay for that gun to be "on the street" for 15, 20 or 25 years while it is on your hip every day as an LEO.
But one day you retire, and now you and that weapon
are suddenly transformed into a hazard to the general public?
Where do we find the Titanic minds that come to these conclusions?
Edited to add:
How can they sell those well-worn Crown Vics and Kawasaki cop bikes I see all over? Don't those vehicles go on killing sprees every week?
Hmmm...a new theory just struck me. It is not cream that rises to the top, but excrement.
