Obviously you don't know any police officers! Most of us are ALL for the rights of people bearing arms. I know I am! You along with SOOOOOOO many
others confuse "police" with "the system" (i.e. judges, courts, politicians, etc...)
Sure we as law enforcement have to enforce the law and what is given to us by those mentioned above, but understand that on MOST
levels..police/deputies DO NOT go on their own and try to enforce firearms laws. Usually, in my experiance the only people the "feds" go after are
those who, shall we say, make light of their intentions or are just plain scumbags. Where I live and work almost EVERY citizen in this city and
county have MULTIPLE guns and shoot...and we don't bother them, and niether do the feds...so what does that tell you? It tells me that people who
post things like this don't have a clear understanding of how we enforce firearms laws, and definitly don't keep track of the types who DO get
visits about their "guns" and activity.
I protect and Serve everytime I dawn my uniform, and unfortunatly people do stupid stuff that requires me to arrest, detain, and lock them up...is
that my fault? NOPE! And as for your ASSUMPTION...your right...we are not bound by law to protect people..meaning we don't need to take a bullet
for a stranger...but it's funny..when some scumbag starts shooting and innocent people are in harms way and running from the scene...who is running
to it? yeah...the good old police officer or deputy sheriff!
And FYI...YOU should be the first line of defense for protecting YOUR family....if not...there is something REALLY wrong!!!
