This bill would require that the written authorization from an
officer's employer necessary to exempt the officer from restrictions
on the sale, delivery, transfer, or possession of an assault weapon
or .50 BMG rifle also include language stating that the use of the
assault weapon or .50 BMG rifle is "for law enforcement purposes,
whether on or off duty." The bill would require that a peace officer
who purchases an assault weapon or .50 BMG rifle pursuant to this
provision on or after January 1, 2013, be limited to the purchase of
one assault weapon or .50 BMG rifle and would prohibit the peace
officer from purchasing another assault weapon or .50 BMG rifle
pursuant to this provision unless the peace officer has relinquished
his or her possession of the original assault weapon or .50 BMG rifle
and transferred registration of the weapon out of his or her name.
