Just like with the 2004 nationwide ccw for active/retired leos and NYS efforts to exempt themselves from the 7 round magazine limit.
I am sure others here can cite other examples as well.
The NRA is much more powerful than any police association. They have more money. More connection. More juice. Really.
And thank you for your past support of, and financial contributions to, LE associations. And all your future support as well. Really.
Although many good citizens in your community may own and carry guns, keeping the community safe still fall on those who carry badges.
In a gunfight, even if you do everything right, you can still get killed.
