It’s a myth that all cops want to restrict firearms. Some do, of course – any group of roughly 800,000 will encompass differing opinions on issues – but the most vocal law enforcement voices calling for further restriction of gun ownership tend to be appointed chiefs of police, dancing on the puppet strings of the anti-gun politicians who appointed them. (Civil service protection generally ceases above the rank of Captain, and appointed Chiefs typically “serve at the pleasure” of the appointing authority.) You also get the elected sheriff who likes to be photographed hugging Hillary Clinton, but those are rare.
Gun owners’ civil rights warrior Dave Workman lives in Washington state, and is closely following the draconian Bloomberg-inspired anti-gun legislation currently pending there. Here, he notes that law enforcement organizations there are lining up to oppose that anti-gun bill.
Enough said, methinks.
