    The active-duty section has also been reworked to protect hollow-point ammunition, but not submachine guns, silencers or a "destructive device" such as a hand grenade, Conte said. Guns or ammunition needing a tax stamp as required by the National Firearms Act wouldn't be protected.
    NOw that aint right! :D

    "Revisions also reduce the amount of time that an officer has to serve as an officer from 15 years to 10 years to qualify for LEOSA carry rights, bringing the federal requirement in line with states such as California with 10-year qualification already established."

    Wait a sec...as this reads it looks like you cant carry until you hit 10yrs on the job??

    No, it reduces the amount of time you have to serve before you can be considered a retired LEO. You can't serve 9 years and 11 months, leave service, and claim retired LEO status but if you serve ten years (and the other conditions are met) you are a retired LEO and can carry.

    Sure you can, LEOSA says any qualified law enforcement officer may carry their duty weapon, in any of the 50 states. This is clear enough, magazine size doesn't matter.
