Do anti-gun groups oppose 'assault weapons' for retired California 'Only Ones'?

Why retired "Only Ones" would need the ability to wreak such mayhem is left even more murky. Representative Carolyn "What's a Barrel Shroud?" McCarthy (D-NY) and Senator Frank Lautenberg (D-NJ) might be able to explain--their respective bills to ban full capacity magazines are justified by the same kind of rhetoric ("The only reason to have 33 bullets loaded in a handgun is to kill a lot of people very quickly"), but both bills exempt current and retired officers from the ban.

If California lawmakers introduce legislation either to ban private ownership of "assault weapons" by cops, or to allow it, even for retired officers--or both types of legislation--"gun control" groups will have to pick a side. So will cops. [More]
