I guess Im no less happy they will be required to register than we! In NY, Andy of Albany realized he made a huge mistake with the "Safe Act", he forgot that LEO's like Ass Weapons also and their Union stormed the capital (one on one meeting, fix it or were pulling our support). He fixed that for them, LEO's active and retired in NY are exempt from the safe act! Isnt that special?
All the sudden the support we were getting from LEO's against the "Act" disappeared, shocking how that works. Now they are counting bullets in our guns but not their own!
Currently serving and Retired Veterans outnumber LEO's in this state 100 to 1, we have likely had more training handling firearms than many LEO's but we cant be trusted with our own Black Weapons or High Cap Mags, only theirs! I served in the NYARNG 17 years, had lots of machine guns, rocket launchers and other things that blow up under my command most of that time, that didnt get me an Exemption! Wonder why, could it be that because our Military has no Union we also have no voice?
The funny thing is that these exemptions only go to dilute any fight we may have in us so Im glad Andy didnt exempt us, we wouldnt be fighting along side the "regular folks" to get our rights back if we didnt lose ours with them! If The Chicago Police Force Union has any pull, you will see this all go away; if not, maybe they will be in our corner instead of their own!
