    Attacking police exemption laws

    Fed laws allow police to get FA weapons like candy... some states allow NFA weapons for police but outlaw civilian ownership.

    Has anyone fought these unfair laws via 14th amendment claim?

    Seems like it'd be pretty cut and dry, we are not provided equal protection under the law, as the law has created different classes of citizen...

    The problem is our current SCOTUS, though making some headway, still believes they see "reasonable restrictions" in the constitution. Until the courts read the constitution as it is written we will always be fighting an uphill battle.
