No more AR-15's for cops?

While the popular AR style rifle isn't going away any time soon, it was a party to an interesting crime if you were a law enforcement officer in January of this year. Legislation passed in the wake of the Newtown shootings prompted the New York legislature to make it illegal to posses high-capacity magazines. Usually this isn't a problem because there is a clause for LEO in bills that ban high-cap magazines. Except in New York. No clause there. Overnight, by the letter of the law, thousands of cops became possible felons, as it is a felony to illegally posses a high-cap magazine. Obviously by the spirit of the law, cops in New York would never be taken to court over the issue, or else all of America would be up in flames with heated rhetoric denouncing the law. It just goes to show, that Nancy Pelosi type of thinking that prevails among the anti-gun population is prevalent. They want to "pass the bill, then find out what is in it later". Well that just doesn't fly with me. I think our law enforcement officials deserve better than to be treated like just another person. After all, they are the only ones who keep the thin blue line between order and chaos. Here's to the boys in blue.
