A former police officer expressed the sentiment of many Americans when she testified before Congress recently that she won’t comply with gun confiscation laws.

Dianna Muller, who won the ladies title in the 2015 NRA World Shooting Championship, is a 22-year veteran of the Tulsa Police Department. Speaking before the House Judiciary Committee recently, she stated that she would not be participating in an assault weapons ban should one be put in place.

She told the committee: “Please don’t legislate the 150 million people just like me into being criminals.”

She also spoke out on the ban on the bump stocks that allow semi-automatic weapons to fire rapidly like automatic ones, saying she was forced to decide between complying with the ban or becoming a felon. Should she face a similar question about assault weapons, she said in no uncertain terms that she would not comply.

As a law enforcement officer during the previous assault weapon ban from 1994 to 2004, she said she did not see any impact on safety from the measure, adding that it wouldn’t have been allowed to sunset if it had been effective.

Muller is also the founder of the gun advocacy group The DC Project. Appearing on Fox & Friends shortly after her testimony, she warned that the Second Amendment is at stake and said that gun owners should “get involved and engaged.”

She said that many people in law enforcement agree with her stance and that those in favor of such a ban are throwing around terms such as “weapons of war” simply to stir up emotions.

Muller and other people at the hearing also raised questions about the practicality of such a ban. They said that the differences between the AR-15 and weapons like it, and a standard semi-automatic hunting rifle are merely cosmetic.

Another witness, Heritage Foundation Senior Legal Policy Analyst Amy Swearer, disputed the notion that law-abiding citizens don’t need weapons like AR-15s. She pointed out that her mother, who is a gun novice, struggled to fire a handgun at the range but was far more accurate when she tried an AR-15. Its greater stability makes it easy to handle and fire accurately in tense situations, but it can also be argued that simply brandishing one is often enough to deter would-be criminals from doing harm.
