    ...these weapons are going to be given only to trained members of a law enforcement organization (who presumably underwent some kind of background screening in order to get the job), registered to them in some kind of database in which they will keep track of who has a gun, and they will be responsible to the department for the guns' ultimate use?

    That sounds to me like a pretty good way to handle all "assault rifles." Require training, background checks, registration, and liability.
