I know and have met many LEOs, be it City, Sheriff, or state (even one federal) and they ALL carried off-duty.GAGunOwner said:Most of us would do almost anything to be legally allowed to carry like cops. Just looking at it from a GA point of view, for cops there are virtually no off-limits places.Law enforcement officials echoed Mr. Chudwin's assertion, saying only 25 percent of off-duty officers carry a gun.
You would think that cops, of all people, would realize that police cannot be everywhere at all times, and the extent of crime that is really out there.
I'm not saying they should want to jump in, off-duty, in every little situation they encounter. I think it is bizzare that they don't value their own life, or the life of others, enough to carry their gun when they legally can.
Foshizzle, I 100% agree.I am willing to bet that given my military and civillian training that I am far more prepared and competent than your average LEO in weapon use. Double standards mean I give you three shakes of the finger and one loud FU to those in LE who think you have more inherent rights off-duty as I do.
