That’s an excellent point. Even growing up in Miami in the 80s, it’s not like you went to the flea market on bird road and just picked up a few kilos of coke and an Uzi.
And yeah, that would aid in stopping criminals. “Hey, that dude has a gun with a really big magazine. Ima call the cops, that shit don’t look right” and the police do their job.
Right now, in some states, the cops literally tell you they can’t even TALK to the person until they start shooting, and then, well, a little too late. Oops.
