I guess my problem with this is the idea of constructing an "only ones" class of people.

What if, after 20 years of being a model citizen, I want to buy the same weapon for a dollar? My tax dollars paid for the weapon. My tax dollars paid for it to be maintained.

Does this mean that certain jobs - not character - project a saintly aura? Particularly tax funded government jobs and only government jobs?
