    Why should a police officer not be able to skip the background check?


    Is the requirements for a CCW permit more stringent than a police officers requirements??

    I can also drive in excess of the posted speed limit with lights and sirens, why can't you?
    Do you see how your argument sounds?


    You do realize that any step in the right direction in regards to guns is a good step, whether it is solely for LE or not it doesn't matter.

    Careers are not the same. I was trained to kill thousands of people, with one push of a button, from very long distance. It can keep you awake at night thinking about it.

    Non in prison. Some to Captain's Mast, which resulted in Other Than Honorable Discharges. No benefits, no gun rights.

    But what does this have to do with magazine capacity?

    I can carry in all 50 states and places you aren't permitted to. Does that upset you as well?

    1. Because the PO does not have a CHL/CCW as required by the law to skip the background check.

    2. I do not know.


    What does this have to with the size of LEO magazines vs non LEO magazines?

    At this point it's clear you're either too dense to actually participate in this conversation or just trolling, either way, move along.

    Or KEEP in prison? As a state CO, I missed qualification for LEOSA by just one point: I do not have power of arrest on the street. If anyone should be pissed that the coppers get it and they don't, it should be folks like me. However, there are reasons why I support LEOSA as it stands.

    You've got my vote for the change, brother.
    Absolute BS you folks don't qualify. I hope you at least CCW!

    Yup. One of my college buddies loves to travel. Ended up working for an airline just so he can fly anywhere (practically for free) at the drop of a hat. Every weekend, don't know if he's in town or on the other side of the equator.


    Same thing for teachers. How many people became teachers because, among other perks, they loved the idea of getting summers off, week of christmas/new years off, Easter week off, etc...

    Where I'm at, there are a number of private K-12 schools (average tuition is about $20K a year). And their teachers (active and retired) can send their own children to any of these private schools for free, or with steep discounts. Not a bad perk.

    As long as you are an active duty cop, my answer is no.

    But as one who is not a cop let me ask this. Is a retired cop allowed to make arrests? Is a retired cop exempt from the same laws I have to follow such as in self-defense shootings? Do retired cops get involved in investigations? Or are retired cops just retired?

    Yep, private colleges around here offer perks. The law school I went to gives their employees a pretty substantial discount for themselves or their children who wish to attend the college. Not just law school, but any school on the campus, undergrad, business, psychology, etc. The discount increases with every year of service. Nice perk... wish I had that when I went. I want it. Now I am going to complain about it until they issue me a refund, with interest!

    I'm not complaining. I'm asking a question. A question you are refusing to answer.

    You're still not answering my question. I know that CHL holders don't have to go through the instant background check. My question to you is this...

    Your stance is that all laws should be applied the same to everyone, but the instant background check is an instance in which it isn't and cops don't get the same exemption as CHL holders, so how is this fair and why don't you think it's not fair?

    So then you really don't expect all laws to be applied to everyone evenly?

    How does that make sense?

    But... but... cops can get the same exemption as any of the CHL holders... all they have to do is apply and get the CHL like anyone else... sorta the same as anyone can have the exemptions of a LEO... just apply and become a LEO like anyone else.:tongueout:

    Oh wait... did I just make too much sense by applying the same logic across the board?:whistling:

    Thanks for the positive thoughts. Unfortunately, with our state's pay and hiring standards in the prison system, I would be concerned that one of our stinking rocket scientists would screw the whole deal up for everyone.

    And yes, I most certainly do CCW. Also keep an MKVI and a cell phone with me when I'm outside the fence. Also an MKIV in the console. On a trip, a long gun rides in the trunk.

    Times are changing, and not for the better.

    A self defense shooting that I'm involved in and one you are involved in are exactly the same. It is a homicide; a lot of you guys can't grasp that.
