The New Jersey law that limited magazines to 10 rounds applies to police as well except when they are on duty – and presumably by extension – only armed with their duty weapon.
New Jersey police can’t keep magazines with more than 10 rounds in their personal collection.
A lot of people say this seems fair, as much as gun control is fair, in that people in law enforcement should not have special rights.
This however, is a break from the way Democrats have treated cops in the past when it comes to gun control.
The Left has always been about protecting the power of government against the rights of people. So usually giving people who have had the sprinkling of the magic fairy dust of goverment power extra rights is right up the Democrat alley. So for them not to include police in the exceptions to 10 round mags is new.
This has made me think, is this the ultimate result of the anti-police attitude that has metastasized in Woke Democrats in the last few years.
Old is busted is “the police are the only ones who can be trusted to carry guns.” Now it’s “disarm the police.”
I’m curious if this new breed of Democrat that is coming into power (the AOC generation) that has been steeped in anti-cop rhetoric is going to more and more not exempt police from gun control.
I wonder what that will do for the gun control movement.
It might be much harder to enforce gun control when the police figure out that they are bound by the very same rules as soon as they clock out and take off their uniforms.
How willing is a police officer to enforce an AWB when he has to give up his personal AR too?
