LEO using 77R for banned "assault" weapons?

Saw it a couple times going through some shops in Montgomery county, but wanted to know if this was something that was widely known. Basically, as long as LEO got a letter from the department saying the rifle in question was for duty use and that they had no domestic violence history, they could 77R same day release a banned rifle under the "assault weapon" category on the application. Is this being done for rifles other than AR-15 style rifles? I only ask because I want to know if MSP is okaying rifles that aren't typically patrol rifles, like .308s and AKs etc. Also, will this work for SBRs under 29in OAL? Appreciate any info.

I believe there is an "Above the Law" clause in a lot of the gun laws so .... maybe. As for getting an answer to this question : The first rule about fight club is ?

The LEO duty letter is one of the exceptions in the law, so, yeah, that sounds about right. No reason it's limited to ARs.

LEAs use the milpro ARs on the job. They have an exemption for that purpose. It is not “above the law”. It is written into the law. The LEA must certify the purchase is for a rifle to be used on duty. Only after a letter from the Command of that LEA is presented... the active duty LEO May purchase the rifle for duty use. Retired LEOs do not use that exemption as it is not available to them.

My Bad.
I thought .gov having superior firearms is one school of thought of the 2A (the law I was referring to). Possibility of a tyranical government and all ...
Probably not appropriate here so I rescind my comment. When the officer retires do they hand over the firearm?



No offense meant to LEOs .. or LEAs

No... Because just like those of us who purchased them before the FSA2013... The rifle was purchased when the law allowed. The LEO should not have to turn it in and we should not have to turn in our pre-FSA2013 milpro rifles either. Both were purchased when the law allowed.

The FSA2013 law should not be there at all... But, it is until we can get it changed. So I am not going to turn in my rifles to placate someone who did not buy one before 10/01/13.

I would imagine a police shooting victim lawyer would have a field day if someone was killed with a non-issue, military -grade privately owned assault weapon by an On duty cop.

What about getting hit with a privately owned espantoon, or getting handcuffed with privately owned handcuffs, while the LEO is wearing privately owned uniform shoes.

And...Please... Stop using the leftist language.

I guess some are just tired with exemptions for LEO 's with the gun laws. Makes it look like they are a class above us.

Leftist language was intended to be a semi-humorous example of the language said lawyer would likely be using in front of a jury explaining how a deranged, "hell-bent on killing" LEO used a super-duper assault weapon "so deadly it was banned" to brutally murder some misunderstood perpetrator. Because that is exactly what would happen if a non-issue weapon was used in an on duty shooting. Not saying it's right or wrong - just saying that's what would happen.

I have to assume your attempt to equate an espantoon, handcuffs or shoes with a non-issue "assault rifle" was also an attempt at humor.

It looks as if neither one of us is funny.
