Truth emerges from one of the interviewed people.

"Fellow gun owner John Simutis, of Concord, said from a self-defense perspective, police are probably the best judges of what magazine size is appropriate -- and they've chosen to carry 15-round magazines.

Civilians should have the right to be as well armed as the police, said Simutis, 63, a retired nurse and computer programmer.

"I deserve the same chance the police have," he said. "My life is just as valuable to me as an officer's life is to him or her.""

Yes. This is the same answer I give, too. I usually get the half arsed answer that 'cops are in more danger' than 'regular' people are.

I usually answer that 'that must be why 49 of 50 states have a concealed carry law, and about half were passed in the last 15 years'.
