    Regular patrolman don't need automatic weapons either. Only SRT's need that type of weapon..patrolman can't even use a taser properly... they are all too eager and trigger happy.

    Even at gun shows you aren't allowed to have loaded guns, something to think about.

    How do you get any kind of gun into a courthouse?
    In Manhattan, we have good security.

    Clearly, we need MORE GUNS to advert this kind of situation. Let's replace the judge's gavel with a Glock 9mm and he can call the court to order by hitting the expanded magazine butt of the pistol. And while we're at it, let' arm everyone in the courtroom (except the bailiff, he's already packin' heat). The defendant needs a firearm, too. After all, innocent until proven guilty.
