    What exactly did you mean then? That cops aren't interested in non crimes?

    I meant exactly what I wrote - that cops in the Carolinas and Indiana do not appear to care much about guns being shipped to other places like New York and Chicago. Why is that so hard to understand?

    What facts do you have that supports your claim?

    During the Gabby Gifford hearings the NRA Director claimed to have over 80,000 police officers in their membership. I also heard once that NRA is the largest instructor for police officers

    In Upstate NY where I live, the county sheriff was on record that he would not enforce NY's SAFE Act. And I dont believe he was the only one

    Ultimately there is some common sense here, if they didn't like guns why would they even apply for a job where it is required equipment

    Facts? It's an opinion, not a claim. I gave my opinion when you first asked and the use of the words "appear to care" just above clearly shows it is an opinion.

    Sometimes they do, if its from a certain community. They have their press conference with all the guns they confiscated to show the press

    So if you are a member of the NRA you are a gun nut. Got it.

    I heard that Browning Nagle was a terrible QB for the Jets and the guy that uses his name as a screen name is even worse as a poster. Convince me that I'm wrong.

    You know that they say about opinions, right?

    It stands to reason that if you donate to their cause, you support it. Duh. Not too many folks out there throwing away their money for fun

    Again, supporting the NRA makes you a "gun nut?"

    Nothing I wrote was an indictment of any particular organization but was a generalized opinion. I have seen many articles about the interstate trafficking of illegal weapons and in them it is almost universal that any concerted law enforcement activity is on the part of agencies in the area the guns are being brought to rather than the area they derive from.

    I sure do - everyone is entitled to theirs. There is absolutely no need for you to agree.

    Do you have an opinion on the matter or are you simply trolling?

    Thats pretty dumb logic again. And the point you’re missing is that the gun manufacturers are complicit in getting guns into the hands of people who shouldn’t have them and they fund the NRA plenty well to make sure it is allowed.

    Just because you shoot your gun on the weekends doesn’t make you an expert on the illicit gun trade. Not to say that I am but that’s why we’re bullshitting on a message board.

    This is the hundredth time you’ve tried to shun someone for having an opinion in this thread since you know best owning some pistols. And this has absolutely nothing to do with the functionality of a weapon.

    he offers nothing and has real issues with people disagreeing. It’s like that of a child and not a grown man

    To your broader point though, I think they have to be made in the USA if they want to sell to the department of defense and that’s probably their biggest customer by far

    Good stuff right there.

    I have no problem with differing opinions but I do have a problem with uninformed opinions. People should have some knowledge of what they are talking about and I'm not talking about how to disassemble or even shoot a firearm. I'm talking about knowledge of the application process, knowledge of the existing laws, knowledge of the different types of firearms. This thread is littered with people demanding we enact laws that already fucking exist. They don't know the difference between automatic and semi-automatic. The list goes on and on.

    So yeah, I can get bent of shape just like people do when someone posts an uninformed opinion about the Jets or one of the players.

    We don't have a police problem with firearms, we have a Justice System issue with firearms. We arrest them and they are right back on the freaking streets. It's an issue with the local, county, and state DA'S

    Just because you have 80,000 police in the NRA doesn't mean they have full arsenals at home. To be honest, most officers could care less about the NRA and utilize it more for training options

    That's less than 9% of the LEOs in the U.S. so not really a shocking number

    Just look at the police budgets in major cities... it's crazy.

    In Los Angeles they gave an 8.5% increase to the LAPD's operating budget to about $1.9 billion. The department's total funding, which includes pensions, is $3.2 billion.

    And that doesn't include the LA Sheriffs Dept.
