    You mean to say that CCW's are unnecessary for LEO's in Maryland. You know, since LEOSA and all.

    From the article:

    "Baltimore has been working to implement a federal consent decree mandating sweeping reforms after U.S. investigators detailed longstanding patterns of unconstitutional policing and excessive force.

    In addition to a police department that's distrusted by many residents, Charm City has seen a mix of chronically high rates of violent crime. The city of Baltimore is one of the most dangerous in America, according to the FBI, totaling more than 300 homicides for four years running."

    So, Baltimore was once a crime-ridden city made even more dangerous and violent by the Obama-Holder Administration's policy of imposing federal mandates.

    When I was a copper in Baltimore many years ago if you were off duty in Baltimore City you must be armed.
    No permit necessary in Maryland for a sworn police officer..

    ANY American living or visiting Baltimore should be able to CCW. The approved CCW in MD are insane, unless you are in law enforcement.

    In other words, he has nothing to do with actual law enforcement.

    I lived next door in Delaware for a short time and one of the contributors to my haste in exiting that state was their gun laws.

    Mainly the good one that allows anyone to purchase a firearm without any kind of state regulation or over site on handgun purchases.
    Wonderful you say, finally some freedom one would think right. But the second part of that equation is that to legally carry that same gun for self defense a law abiding citizen must obtain a CCW permit to do so, but there is nothing stopping the desperados and gangbangers from ignoring that requirement and that unfairly puts the law abiding citizens of that state at a severe disadvantage to the less upstanding folks.

    Again, you don't get it. You actually don't understand the difference between a CCW and a law enforcement credential.

    LEO's do NOT need a CCW permit. LEO's carry on AND OFF DUTY based on their police credentials ("their badges"). They do not need to apply for CCW permits to carry a gun, ON OR OFF DUTY anywhere in the country.

    In other words, Maryland's CCW permit process, however difficult it is, is COMPLETELY irrelevant when it comes to ANY law enforcement officers ANYWHERE in the U.S. None of them need a Maryland CCW permit to carry a gun in Baltimore or any other city or state in the US.

    Now, if you want to talk about how "unfair" it is that those with LEO credentials can carry anywhere in the country - that's a topic of an entirely different debate, unrelated to this thread. My view? Different professions come with different trainings and "perks" with those trainings. I don't stop being a doctor when I am "off the clock." My skills as a tactical physician do not cease to exist when I'm not on a call out.

    And back on topic - sorry this guy and his wife was robbed. And yes, it is ironic given the geopolitical climate of that city/state.

    Two sixteen year old males have been arrested and are being charged as adults.

    Many LEOs get a CCW just as a backup to their police credentials.

    Yes.
    The example we were given was....... (1960's Balto Policeman)
    Like if, you went to a quick stop at 10PM (off duty) and walked in on a robbery.
    And even if you could not do anything, even though you were armed...........
    That was OK, but you still HAD BETTER have had your gun with you.

    I knew a number of people that (illegally) carried guns, one was my Wife.

    The hell with what those crooked Baltimore politicians said.
