    Interesting. All I can say is that every single officer I have personally spoken with from our surrounding area thinks the idea of a weapons ban is not only unconstitutional, but bad policy in general. Thge overall majority of LE on our side of the state tend to be very pro-2A. The problem, is that the majority of voters in Oregon are based in the more liberal leaning west side of the state.

    I'll give up my guns when the Secret Service gives up theirs.

    Rank and file officers (not management) know that no gun law made will stop a crazy person from committing acts of violence with a gun if they get a notion to do it.

    We have made a decision, as a society, to quit locking nuts away in institutions. Fine, but we can't complain when one of the consequences of this decision is the occassional mass murder by a nut who should have been in an instituition.

    That kind of argument isn't going to be very persuasive. Sorry, it just isn't.

    Which argument are you referring to, the one in the linked article or one posted in the thread? Just curious.
