Repost- If Retired Cops Are Safer With Unlocked Guns, Why Aren’t the Rest of Us?

July 3, 2015

This article is by my coleague Kurt Hofmann.  He comments on the political bias in California gun laws.  Los Angeles says civilians can’t have access to a loaded gun, but off duty and retired law enforcement can.  Some political contributors are clearly more equal than others.

    I’ve read many great articles by Kurt Hofmann.
    Posted this on JPFO when I read the article:

    Like in NY, retired officers WILL be exempt. Not because they care so much about retired cops and their families, but because every cop will one day be retired – AND THEY WANT COPS TO ENFORCE THEIR LAWS, NOT BE AT ODDS WITH THEIR LAWS! In NY, as now in LA, we have a double standard in constitutional and civil rights – AND – A DOUBLE STANDARD OF THE DEFINITION OF “SAFETY” AS WELL! Off duty and retired cops are “safe” with AR15’s and handguns with standard high capacity magazines – CITIZENS ARE “SAFE” WITH THEIR SEMI-AUTOMATIC RIFLES OUTLAWED – AND THE “LIMITED SPORTING ARMS” WE ARE LEFT WITH HAVE BEEN LIMITED TO SEVEN ROUNDS!!! In the midst of a heroin epidemic, and home invasions being more and more common, citizens are “safer” engaging a four man home invasion team with SEVEN bullets!

    The honest truth is that citizens are viewed as a threat to politicians and their army of law enforcement officers – every violent event in this dangerous world that is “used” as an excuse for the need of limiting firearms to citizens, is simultaneously an urgent need to further militarize and more heavily arm law enforcement officers.

    THIS IS THE ARMS RACE THAT IS GUN CONTROL!
    There is the elite that need to be protected, and the army that protects them. Every one else is EXPENDABLE – and at THE EXPENSE OF THEIR PERSONAL SAFETY is being made harmless, disarmed, and easy to control, and kill, and incapable of massing a threat against the elite!
    (They are trying to outlaw body armor so they can kill us easier!) Before they were exempt, police unions screamed – they would NOT ENFORCE THE LAW – once exempt, which progressive politicians did quick, THE LAW WAS “FIXED” AND EVERYTHING WAS HUNKY DORRIE! (Unless, of course, you are one of the lowly peasant “expendable” citizens!)

    THERE IS NO MORE SECOND AMENDMENT!
    My state assemblyman’s office defines the second amendment to mean:
    The right of the people to keep and bear arms shall not be infringed – IF THEY ARE IN THE MILITIA! (Meaning the armed forces, national guard, or law enforcement!) ALL OTHER CITIZENS HAVE NO RIGHT TO FIREARMS AT ALL!!!
    They are introducing – AND PASSING – laws as such – AND GETTING AWAY WITH IT! (So far two judges have had NO PROBLEM with the NY SAFE ACT! One western circuit judge said seven rounds was random – it’s ten rounds – but nobody is sure if that applies to the Eastern part of the state.)
    THERE IS NO MORE SECOND AMENDMENT – IT HAS BEEN RE-DEFINED TO MEAN THAT CITIZENS ARE LIMITED TO WHATEVER FIREARMS A POLITICIAN FEELS COMFORTABLE “ALLOWING” US – RENDERING IT MEANINGLESS – THERE’S NO POINT TO IT!

    All that being said, I read the new law to mean, when I am home, with my .45 in my belt in case of home invasion, it is in use, my other firearms that are not in use are locked away. When I go out, with my .45 in my belt, the firearms I leave home, not in use, are locked away.
    During a heightened state of emergency, such as during a blackout after a hurricane, or a police helicopter circling overhead, if I feel the need to break out a rifle or shotgun, in addition to my .45 – they are in use, the rest are locked up. when I go to sleep, my .45 within reach is in use, the rest are locked up. Police should be able to comply with that – if they can’t neither can we! If they are making a law to mean “in use” is limited to, to and from an approved range, THEN WE ARE GETTING TO SECOND REVOLUTION TIME! (It would mean we have no right to arms for self defense in our homes – it would mean we will soon have no right to arms AT ALL!!!) (In my town “the PUBLIC range” is open a few token hours on weekends to “the PUBLIC” (So that they can call it a “PUBLIC” range) – the rest of the time IT IS “LAW ENFORCEMENT ONLY”!!!)

    Is that sarcasm?
    Sorry
    I know I can be too passionate on the subject at times!

      No. It is good manners, not sarcasm. You’ll know the difference when you see it.

        Well then I would consider it a complement. There is no more urgent fight during these unsettled times in our countries history! I can tell that you are well aware – however too many people have no clue.
