Ok... so your department is Non Union.
Is there no local LEO Association or Board that you Officers belong too? Is there no public statement your "pro gun" Commissioners could make? Absolutely NO way to let the Citizens of your jurisdiction know where you stand... and more importantly, let the Fed's know what you WON'T do?
How much damage did the Constitutional Sheriffs do to the Head of Steam coming out of DC in the Wake of Obama's post Newtown calls for added restrictions?
How quickly could we ride the "universal BGC" BS into the ground if LEO organizations across the Country began explaining exactly why it won't work, and why you won't waste resources enforcing it.
The point of all of this IS public opinion. Without it, the gun grabbers are neutered... and like it or not, the "public" opinion of LEO's swings the fence sitters.
