    I meant to post this a while ago. A few weeks ago I was in Seattle, and I saw a Seattle Police Officer riding a horse, carrying a revolver. I'm rarely in Seattle, and this was both the first time I've ever seen an officer on duty riding a horse, and the first time I've ever seen an officer carry a revolver for a sidearm.

    I've heard that officers have to be able to fire off 12 rounds accurately at a target in a given amount of time, which would explain why most of them carry Semi autos, but I can't say I've ever seen an officer carry a revolver. Seeing him on a horse with a revolver made me think I was back in the 30's in some old cowboy town (minus the large buildings)

    Yeah I think so too. I saw a cop in Seattle a few years back with a wheelgun, and I complimented him on his choice, and we chatted for a bit.

    Unless he was still able to get off 12 shots in the time allowed, with his revolver.

    With 12 shots, you only need a 6-shooter and a speedloader, no?

    OK, I'll bite.

    Since when do horses ride cops? I won't ask about the revolver. We already know it was a horse pistol.
    I'll make you an offer: I will argue and fight for all of your rights, if you will do the same for me. That is the only way freedom can work. We have to respect all rights, all the time--and strive to win the rights of the other guy as much as for ourselves.

    If I am equal to another, how can I legitimately govern him without his express individual consent?

    There is no human being on earth I hate so much I would actually vote to inflict government upon him.

    of their respect for what only appears to be a law, are cunningly coerced into waiving their
    rights, due to ignorance." (Paraphrased)
