I blame the heavy trigger pull they have to put up with.

Does the CCW holder in my state deserve not to pay for a records check when buying a firearm, yet I have to pay everytime? Even though I am checked every year by my agency. Ohh the humanity and the elevated class of preferential treatment....



I think I found his question?

That is a child like response to a real discussion.

I work in a gun shop part time and I am at best a mediocre shooter.
I am willing to bet if most on this board, were thrust into that incident they would do no better or worse.

I see guys all the time who think they are awesome shooters, but thee truth is they blow.

A lot of times I pray some people are joking...possibly even sarcastic. I'm proven wrong daily when I come on here.

S*** happens, it's even worse when you have an active shooter in an area with a couple of hundred people. But let's not let that get in the way.

You have ricochet, you have background, you have people who panic and run right between the officers and the shooter. What more can you do?
You forgot the mouth breather, those are the ones who just stand there in disbelieve with their mouth open.

I do know and I don't care. LEO don't need any different tools for self-defense than I or my family need. If 7 or 15 is good enough for me it sure is for them. The point is that LEO are not special, different, or a protected class. They are American Citizens just like me. If they don't like it then perhaps they should get involved in the political process and get the law changed for ALL law abiding Americans.

Hmmm. Maybe start on online organization along the lines of Cops who support the 2nd Amendment.

I have mixed views on the subject.

On one hand the police need the high power assault rifles....it takes a boatload of firepower to stop two Asian newspaper chuckers in a pick-up truck.

On the other hand, if a cop with all these weapons of war were to be ambushed, then the bad guys would have these deadly devices and that could be bad for the children.


All animals are equal, some are more equal than the others!

Try not make make it 9-0 on the number of bystanders on the street shot by cops versus those shot by the perpetrator.

And yes, it was a joke based on a pathetic reality.

But, to reiterate my earlier point, it isn't necessarily that citizens should have the exact same weapons as law enforcement. It is that politicians buy LEO silence on anti-gun bills (and often even LEO support) because they provide exemptions for LEOs.

California has a Safe Handgun Roster because, in their infinite wisdom, our liberal legislature feels it important that only safe pistols should be sold in the state. Yet LEOs are exempt. Shouldn't law enforcement, above all others, be required to use a "safe" handgun since it is a fundamental tool for their job?

Pro-2A LEOs are a wonderful thing, but it is still police unions that tell politicians, "We'll support your ban, as long as it doesn't apply to us."

Move to Ohio, we are gun friendly.
Pro-2A LEOs are a wonderful thing, but it is still police unions that tell politicians, "We'll support your ban, as long as it doesn't apply to us."My union didn't and as RussP already added it is the heads of the departments and not the rank and file. See two paragraphs above for the reason why.I still go through the same forms, background checks and liability everyone else does when I purchase a weapon. A CCW holder in my state attends a 12 hour class where a qualifying shoot isn't required and they are given a license to carry a weapon. I am qualified semi-annualy. See the difference???[/QUOTE]

Five characters?

Yes. Every bystander on the street was hit by shots fired by the NYPD officers. All nine victims.

Justifying nine wounded bystanders as collateral damage due to "You have ricochet, you have background, you have people who panic and run right between the officers and the shooter. What more can you do?"...well, it's clear where you stand.

It's a real shame that they're limited from doing more about those LEO exemptions from which they benefit. Convenient, yet a shame.

Sure. I'll just kiss my step-kids goodbye. It'll suck choosing between breaking my wife's heart by dragging her away from her children or losing her when she stays with her children, but either way, their father is not going to allow me to take his kids out of the state because I want to better exercise my gun rights (and in California, he'll probably win legally).

It isn't just the police chiefs. The police unions that endorse these measures eclipse those that oppose them. And sadly, there is a significant proportion of rank-and-file that feel that people who don't wear a badge shouldn't have guns (or at least modern pistols and sporting rifles). While this is not so much the case in rural areas, it is definitely a common theme among urban cops.

We are all bound by the decisions we make, isn't that right?



As for the last part, pure opinion or can you back that up? The majority of police on this board and every one of the cops I work with can care less. You have a right to carry a firearm, utilize it. I give more people with CCWs grief for NOT carrying, but I digress.

I really doubt you could have done any better. In fact, I hazzard to guess, given what I see churned out of today's CCL mills, much, much worse.

Wow. Really? So, you go around putting yourself in harms way every day? You rush in, when everyone is trampling everyone else to get out? Your risk your life routinely to save the lives of others, without stopping to think of yourself, only the situation at hand?

If you are doing all that, then kudos to you, sir.

Let me put this bluntly. How the HELL would you know? From the comfort of your Monday Night Lazy boy recliner, how would you know? Because, some random loons told you this, so it must be gospel?

Let me clue you in. When it comes to big cities, it is your neighbors who voted in the morons who are all about neutoring the 2A.

Kindly find me one, just one LEO in the whole of this board who is anti-2A. I dare you.

I have nothing but respect for good cops, I work around lots of LEO's but I know many that laugh at probable cause, saying that is an illusion. So in other words they pull people over all the time without probable cause. Some LEO's, state, and local governments think they are on a level above citizens, they are not. LEO's work for the citizens. In a perfect world none of these problems would exist, but this isn't a perfect world. I understand the reservations of certain companies to sell in certain states, sort of a quiet revolt. LEO's dont need more powerful guns than citizens, we are both on the same side. But we do need to ban together and crush criminals who use guns. If enough good citizens carried guns the cops jobs would be a lot easier. Instead most citizens carrying legal guns, if pulled over in a traffic stop are treated more like criminals than citizens.

We don't need probable cause to pull you over in a motor vehicle.

And I'm all ears (figuratively speaking of course) of how most citizens are treated like criminals vs being a citizen if they are carrying.

We have HK 416's in our dept, do you think every Joe American should be able to have one of those too?? Yeah, guess what so do I, in fact first thing I said when I shot one was that everyone ought to take one home from the hospital at birth!

Quit acting like there is some imaginary chip on every cops shoulder that you need to knock off. It's bull****. I've sent no fewer than 25 letters to legislators of my own state and others where I vacation or have interests. Why would I do that??? Certainly not because I put myself above anyone else and think I'm part of some special class.

My job may entail things YOU consider special privileges (like shooting MG's or running code through red lights) but I consider them responsibilities, ones that come with significant personal risk and liability.

In the end I don't expect any preferential treatment or privilege. I support the constitution and founding principals of this country and speak up to defend them. So do the cops I work with and many others, to an extent you will never know. How many letters have you written or rallies have you attended, especially knowing that speaking out might put your job at risk if the wrong political hack gets offended??

Your imaginary line between us & our communities is in your head and only shows your own personal bias and lack of understanding of the men & women in law enforcement and why we do what we do.
