i still think your a lil out there. I also appreciate your name calling, EVERYONE loves an Internet badass. Good luck with whatever you do in your life to make a difference even if all you do is sit in front of a computer.
Aww... Don't run of j4454... What pray tell will this board do without your pearls of wisdom?
So... I'm starting by attacking LEO's exemptions huh? I've actually been engaged in this debate for 20 years. For 2 decades I've heard from LEO's, those I know personally and those who chime in here, privately stating that oppose any additional gun control, and that's great.
Unfortunately, public opinion and political opinion is not measure by what you guys tell us "off line".
It's measured by how many of you prostitute the uniform by standing behind Obama, Schumer, Bloomburgs, Ect... As they are calling for more restrictions to protect the public and to protect LEOS.
We understand it's a sh!ty position and speaking out publicly would be met with retaliation from the bosses but you guys DO have a Union.
We've all seen numerous occasions where LEO Unions have held votes of "no confidence" in your leadership.
So... If the vast majority of LEO's reject gun control, then why don't we see similar votes of no confidence on this issue when a Chief stands up with a liberal mayor? Why don't they use the voice of the Union to speak for them?
Does the Union not work you, the LEO... or is it just another liberal voting machine and you're actually it's lapdog?
