Apparently, they can't care for themselves. So, what do you propose, not allowing them to vote? Since they merrily brought this down on their own heads by choosing poltiicians they knew were crazy liberal.



Retired LEO's I have no problem with. They reoutinely piss off criminal organizations on a regular basis who aren't exactly forgiving. They have earned a retried badge and gun after a 25-30 year career of putting their lives on the line and creating a long list of vendettas who would love to find them vulnerable and murder them and their family for their service.



Again, completely wrong. These comparies are refusing to not only to see to LEO's but their Departments or Agencies. It is the equivalent of Colt telling the Military to go suck it, and they won't be providing rifles or replacement parts and components. I take it you either have half the information at hand, or are purposely ignoring it.



I'll be cool with that, as long as you are cool with the VA being shut down, as that is a special privledge not allowed to normal citizens. That wounded military not be given a full pension and full pay for life, as that is not afforded to normal citizens. The wounded warrior project be shut down as tha is not afforded to normal citizens. I could go on, but you see the point.



Really? When you get 2k a month housing expenses, which no citizen or LEO gets. When you get free medical which no LEO or citizen gets. When you get large bonuses for reupping which no civilian or Citizen gets. Yup, I can see why you would be smug.



Yeah, sitting in a comfortable position, not dealing with crap that LEOs have to deal with day in and day out would allow you to be high handed. I think given some of your comments, the arrogance and the hypocrisy is yours. The fact is, you are too blinded by the many privledges that have been afforded to you by your choice, that you are blind to it.



I don't care what they have at at home. I want their duty gear to be full capacity and in good working order.



Then they need to stop consistantly voting Democrat.
Cops choose their location, they aren't told where to report for duty. They don't have to deploy for months at a time, leaving family and loved ones not knowing where they are for weeks at a time.

Cops can walk off the job any time they want, turn in their badge, gun, and patrol car, then tell the whole PD to piss off.

Cops aren't subject to the UCMJ, they are civilians in every sense of the word.

When cops sign a contract like the military does, I'll acknowledge your arguments.

Have a great gun carryin' Kenpo day

They only won't sell anything to them that they cannot sell legally to the general public.

Yes they did, and there were LEOs lined up to vote them in as well.

You mean the civilians who set this whole thing in motion by consistantly and constantly voting for liberals?
Yes, and the liberal LEOS as well.

The civilians put them there, so the civilians are wholly to blame.
Cops are civilians too. Some of them helped as well.

Correct me if I am wrong, but most of the crimes that are committed that make criminals criminals are committed on "civilians" and not exclusively, or even primarily, on those that wear badges. Non-badge wearers deserve as much a right to defend against this front line crime as any. It would be no comfort to my family that a policeman with a 15 round mag brought down the dirtbag that killed me because I only had 7 rounds.

A lot of ignoring going on in this thread.

From what I have read in another thread, Calvery Doc does want to shut down the VAs.

I think you dont know much about the military. If you think that civilians don't get perks and bonuses, you are living somewhere dark and smelly.

You sir, with all due respect to the dangerous job you do, are full of B S on this issue.

Citizens go up against BGs every single day. Statistically less often, I'll grant you. But when you are called to the scene of a crime, 99 percent of the time it is after the fact. Meanwhile, the victim WAS the scene of the crime. And he was there. You weren't.

When NY went from 30 round mags to 10 rounds, people said "don't worry!" When New Yorkers were told to register their guns they were told "Don't worry!" Now we're at 7 round mags, and the pols said "we're only reducing it by 3 rounds!" And the people with newly banned registered weapons are now being forced to turn them in.

If you cops don't step up, then you are de facto standing with those whose true wish is total disarmament. Do you stand with Blooomberg? If not, get together with likeminded cops and go to the NYPost. Take a stand for us.

Frankly, it's like all the Muslims in America who said what a shame it was on 9/11-- but would not stand up against the true Islamists. Eventually, we come to think of them as all on the same side.

Now is the time.

We want you to have all the gear necessary for your next crack house raid. We want you to go home safe. But if you stand around with your mouth shut as your constiuents are disarmed, while picking up your LT OBR with a letter on PD stationery, many of us say nothing more than good luck to you.

I'm not sure how you wish me to take this response, so head on is the way I will approach it.

The companies have stated that they will not sell to anyone in the state, items that are not legal to everyone in the state. Bub, that's as fair as it can be. Get over that.

LEO's don't vote? They don't have any responsibility, even when many of them pose behind these forked up politicians while they demand gun control. No, I do not blame the ones that aren't there, but I do blame the ones that are.

As far as my bonuses go, you need to get your facts straight. I spent 20 years in the military, and received one $2000 bonus. That's it. Nothing more. I only got half of that, because I changed jobs.

You can search for my recommendations for the VA any time you would like, a post I made today might make you wet your diapers.

KA, you mentioned earlier that you might have given me more respect than you think I deserved. I'm afraid I have to return the favor. You are either an emotionally unstable nutjob, a temporarily maladjusted D-B, or just a narcissistic *******.

I'm really not sure which one you are. You are a mystery at the moment. You are not making a lick of sense one way or the other.

It has been repeatedly pointed out how the companies taking this stand will not hurt a single on the Job LEO.
It has been repeatedly pointed out that the regular civilians are the only ones that will really suffer in the states involved.
You have been repeatedly requested to join with us to fight the legislators.
You have repeatedly taken a stance that you are somehow more special than all of us poor peasants, and arrogantly claimed more rights than the rest of us should have.

Stop taking whatever hallucinogenics you are taking and pay close attention.

NOTHING THESE COMPANIES ARE DOING WILL EFFECT THE EQUIPMENT OF ANY ON THE JOB LEO'S.

What is so hard to understand about that?

You are lining up to oppose normal citizens, and lining up to support LEO's over us regular folks, even when there will be no harm to LEO's.

Far from true. The NYS Sheriff's association has passed a resolution opposing the law...so have dozens of local and county benevolent associations. Most cops I know are among the most outspoken supporters of the 2nd...

Lets take a step back and regroup. You're upset because some companies are going to restrict sales of things not legally own able by civilians in states that have unreasonable gun control.

I'm supporting those companies. Why? Not because I don't like you or don't like police officers, but because it sounds very fair and gets attention.

I used to work at a military confinement facility in Mannheim, guess what, all people who wear a uniform are not good guys. I can think of a few who needed a needle then, and would love to be the guy that pushed the plunger on the "last needle"
on one particular active duty Major. A uniform might be an indicator, but it's not proof of anything. If you even do a superficial look around, you will find heroes and zeros in every group. I've also worked at an interrogation facility in Baghdad. Yeah, there have been several people that have threatened to kill me and my family if they ever got the chance. Some of those threats were just to try to get under my skin. Some were promises by very committed terrorists and former Bath party officials, others by true psychotics. Meh, it's just part of the job.

I've been retired from the Army for over 6 years. I don't get to carry AT4's in my truck. I really don't agree with NYS exempting retired officers from the magazine restriction.

Considering that, I think companies refusing to ship any product that is not compliant with the civilian restrictions to NYS is not only fair, it's funny. I hope the idea catches on and the citizens, with the support of law enforcement change the law. Time will tell. I hope publicity from this helps stall any potential stupid ineffectual gun control laws in Texas, Kentucky, and all the other states. Wisconsin has a bill that would ban any expanding bullets. http://www.examiner.com/article/wisc...ing-ammunition

So, if it passes, companies should only ship FMJ there, period, no exceptions.

That's fair.
Far be it from me, as a spectator to this particular conversation in the thread, to intrude, but you did not address a single point he made. Instead you just regurgitated the same drivel you've been spewing this entire thread.

Why don't you actually try engaging in a conversation?

On an unrelated note, I'm curious about something... Your moniker is "Calvary Doc" and you list that you retired as a Major. Your public profile lists medicine as an interest, and your current occupation as a physician assistant.

Based on these things you list, I'm going to assume that you were an officer, in the 1st Calvary Division out of Ft Hood.

What exactly was your MOS, as an officer in the medical field, which got you face to face with some many "AQ terrorists" who threatened you "face to face" so much? I'm genuinely curious.

I'm also curious what HSLD ultra-dangerous job allowed you the time to make 35,000 posts on GT since 2005. In my super boring and safe job as a cop, I've only had enough down time to make about 5,000 posts since 2004. I'm genuinely curious.

I must be honest with you. I think you may be overplaying your hand a bit here. Especially since you seem to be unwilling to consider the regular dangers we face as cops, or even think about how many of us also served in the military in combat and free fire zones.

Okay, folks, I must ask you to dial the rhetoric back a few clicks.

Right now the topic is going in circles and the exchanges are getting way too personal.

Stay on the topic and off each others backs.

You've been given a hell of a lot of latitude in this thread. Now you're starting to abuse it.

Lets settle down and get back to more civil exchanges.

Thanks...

Never had birds. They poop and stink too much. Also, can't really play with them. I have a high ceiling house. They get loose, I am done for days chasing that thing while it poops all over my house.

Wrong. When I joined the Border Patrol in 1998, they told me where I was going to live. They didn't ask. I have been sent all over the world on orders, not upon request and left my family back in the good old USA for periods of time. So, once again, your ignorance is glaring.

Again, wrong. Processing out takes time. It doesn't take moments like the civilian world.

Quote:

Odd. I saw more combat than the Coast Guard, yet they are under the umbrella of DHS, and are considered Vetrans, yet they had the same option of resigning as a Border Patrol Agent. Funny that.

Quote:

If you are relocated, you have to sign a contract to remain employed for a year. Seems contractual to me.

You do enjoy being wrong a lot, don't you?

If you decide to play along with all of the anti-gun politicians like Bloomberg or Rahm then the gun laws being enacted will cause the bad guys to turn their guns in also, and then the good guys shouldn't need high cap mags or AR-15's. This isn't the reality, so the good guys need someone that still has guns.

The problem you have is that Rham Emmanuel and Bloomberg are declaring war on the gun manufacturers in addition to enacting tighter gun laws. Rham was pressuring BofA to revoke Remmington's line of credit and TD Bank to revoke Smith and Wesson's.

At what point do they roll over or fight back?

What LaRue and Olympic arms are doing is displaying an act of civil disobedience. They have no ability to change the law, but this is how their voice can be heard. It is a shame that they are doing it to the entire LEO community in NY.

Les Baer started in Illinois and moved to Iowa to let their voice be heard.

Remington is being wooed out of NY, where they have been for over 200 years. (I hope Michigan can ink that deal.)

As a business leader in my community, but not a resident, I have no vote. I work in a city where the Mayor is a major anti-gunner and worse he is supporting cutting the PD force significantly.

Having needed the local LEO's for an active B&E, and 4 hours later I get a call that an officer is enroute I wish I had better options other than dealing with the situation myself (without my gun).

My act of civil disobedience, I"m moving as many of my employees as possible out of the city to an alternate work location. As we have a local income tax, I'm speaking with tax dollars.

The problem is that the legislators, politicians, and chief law enforcement pundits do not feel the effects of their laws like the every day citizens because they are either exempted or afforded protection details.

Why don't you actually try engaging in a conversation?

On an unrelated note, I'm curious about something... Your moniker is "Calvary Doc" and you list that you retired as a Major. Your public profile lists medicine as an interest, and your current occupation as a physician assistant.

Based on these things you list, I'm going to assume that you were an officer, in the 1st Calvary Division out of Ft Hood.

What exactly was your MOS, as an officer in the medical field, which got you face to face with some many "AQ terrorists" who threatened you "face to face" so much? I'm genuinely curious.

I'm also curious what HSLD ultra-dangerous job allowed you the time to make 35,000 posts on GT since 2005. In my super boring and safe job as a cop, I've only had enough down time to make about 5,000 posts since 2004. I'm genuinely curious.

I must be honest with you. I think you may be overplaying your hand a bit here. Especially since you seem to be unwilling to consider the regular dangers we face as cops, or even think about how many of us also served in the military in combat and free fire zones.

The profile is accurate. I spent time on active duty with the 1st cavalry div, 1st infantry div, and 11th ACR. I spent my first 10 years enlisted. My second 10 as a Physician Assistant. It's an AOC, not an MOS, although they are pretty much the same thing, 65D.

As you might expect, after Abu Grhaib, medical officers were part of the regular duty contingent for interrogation facilities. There was a group of us that pulled duty at the Division Interrogation Facility, and our TMC was the medical backup for the facility that housed all of the high value (deck of cards) prisoners. They had one physician with very limited equipment on site, and if he needed any assistance, lab, dental or X-ray support, he brought his patients to us.

I fully understand the companies that are taking this stand are not endangering a single LEO. They already have what they have, and none of these companies are taking anything away from them. There will be some companies that will not sign onto the program, and LEO's in NYS or any other state will still be able to get what they need. That is a fact. If every company stopped selling every thing to states with restrictive gun control, outside LEO organizations would make sure those guys got what they needed.

Seeing that there is no danger whatsoever to LEO's in NYS, I support the attention getting measure that these companies are taking.

That's all. I don't want anyone hurt.

I have noticed an almost complete lack of concern for the citizens in NYS, who will be impacted by the laws recently passed. They are the ones that need help, I think these companies are doing what they can to help them.

Statistically less often, I'll grant you. But when you are called to the scene of a crime, 99 percent of the time it is after the fact. Meanwhile, the victim WAS the scene of the crime. And he was there. You weren't.
Again, how would you know. Please recount all the armed encounters you have had. The ammount of times you have been shot at. The ammount of times you have either come close to having to take a life, or have taken one. The ammount of the people you work closely with that have been killed in your line of work, the ammount of times you have nearly been killed in your line of work. I am dying of curiousity.

When NY went from 30 round mags to 10 rounds, people said "don't worry!" When New Yorkers were told to register their guns they were told "Don't worry!" Now we're at 7 round mags, and the pols said "we're only reducing it by 3 rounds!" And the people with newly banned registered weapons are now being forced to turn them in.
And New Yorkers consistantly voted in the people that made it happen like the grumpy sheeple they are. Now, they are suprised that their consistant choices of politicians has led them to this.

Quote:
If you cops don't step up, then you are de facto standing with those whose true wish is total disarmament. Do you stand with Blooomberg? If not, get together with likeminded cops and go to the NYPost. Take a stand for us.
I have been rabidly pro-2A for my entire life. The fact that you declare that all LEO's are anti-2A is stupid. I really don't know too many that are. And those are usually relegated to the "weirdo" category. The rest of us are firearms happy. Politicians who were elected by people who voted liberal who then in turn found another political appointee to put in charge of police forces shouldn't suprise you. But, they DO NOT represent the rank and file opinion.

We want you to have all the gear necessary for your next crack house raid. We want you to go home safe. But if you stand around with your mouth shut as your constiuents are disarmed, while picking up your LT OBR with a letter on PD stationery, many of us say nothing more than good luck to you.
I don't have constituents. I am not a politician. THAT is where you're anger should be directed.

I finally made it back to the free state of Texas. It is a great place to be a firearms owner. If New York sucks. Give them the finger, as New Yorkers are prone to do, and come to a free state where the 2A is a way of life.

It ultimately comes down to is whether or not the people making these laws care about cops in the least. I have my doubts.

It's not that I disagree with you, as much as I don't think you are really listening to the concerns posted in this thread.

We (the cops in here) aren't looking at the current political climate as "us" (cops) versus "them" (average law-abiding citizens), as much as "us" (cops AND average law-abiding citizens) versus "them" (the scumbags making these asinine laws which impacts our country).

The concern is that some of us cops won't get access to the tools we need to help the average law-abiding citizens and ourselves.

It's not about getting special privileges.

That's good to hear. It's probably because you can't tell what a person's tone is on the Internet, but some of your posts have kinda sounds like you don't give two ***** about whether or not cops get hurt. I'm glad you cleared that up.

What would you propose we do for the citizens of NYS? The same people who voted those people into office, have bent over for them for years, and still refuse to stand up for themselves.... I've said it MANY times. We are governed by what we allow.

What can we do for people who won't do for themselves?

I have seen this posted a few times in the thread (mostly by that other guy). I don't know NYS much, but I am somewhat doubtful that it is the gun owning persons in that state that are largely voting for the pukes that keep getting elected; just as it is probably not the truely 2A supporting LEOS that are voting for them. I suspect that there are just too many liberal voters there that are content with how things are going and don't give two craps in a small bucket about who gets what guns/mags.

This stunt appeals to emotion rather than reason. Police do have more rights and should have more rights to do their job then the rest of us - this is what our society has decided a long time ago. Doctors have right to prescribe medicine - other people don't. Military have more rights (i.e., access to powerful weaponry) that other people don't. I'm tired of hearing this stupid equivalence argument: "well if military has nuclear bombs, then I have a right to have one, too." It's so stupid, it hurts.

They only care about getting a line or two of cops standing behind them when they are making a pitch for more gun control. Yes, I get it that most police do not support the political higher ups that are for this because the politicians are for this, and they will get a leg up in the future for their support now. Those guys, I oppose politically, but wish them no harm either.

Then we are on the same team.

There is really no chance of that. The gear is already on hand, and there is no way that they would not find at least one company to sell to them. Even if they could not, teh Federal or other state LEO agencies are not going to let them go without. If I had any reason to believe that this would stop a single LEO from getting the right gear to use on the job, I'd be opposing it too. That will not be the case. This move is just an attention getter.

Please discard that impression. I am very anti-criminal, very pro-LEO. I've never had a bad interaction with a LEO, I have had several good ones. The LAST thing I want is for anyone to get hurt. I've seen way to much of that than my fair share, and don't wish that on anyone other than violent criminals.

NYS is different than NYC. Unfortunately, all of the upstate conservatives are woefully outnumbered by the big city libs.

It's not as if all new yorkers are liberal airheads. Many are conservative hard working Americans, that deserve to have a fair chance at defending themselves.

When we RESPOND to the scene of a reported crime, you're right.... Usually.

We respond to hot calls, in progress, a lot more than 1% of the time. Believe it, or not, we are also capable of being proactive. We also go out looking for bad guys. We prey in the predators. We hunt the hunters.

Police work isn't all about sitting at the local coffee house, leaving the citizens to fend for themselves, until after the call comes in.

I would suggest you go for some ride-alongs. Get a first hand account of some of the stuff we do. Maybe you would be surprised.
