  •  And what were the tommy guns for? (0+ / 0-)

    Large criminal gangs protecting their black market liquor trade.

    Get rid of the black market in drugs, don't create a large black market in guns. Take away their profit motive, and there won't be large gangs shooting up the cops.

    Today's shootings are all lone nuts. A dozen cops with 6-shooters can surround and contain one nut.

    At worst, the rifles can be limited to SWAT, for severe incidents. But the average beat cop doesn't need a large capacity handgun.  

    I'll ask you also:  The only defense against a bad guy with a gun is a good guy with a bigger gun?  Don't I also get a big gun then to protect myself from the tommy guns?
