Although the internet likes to portray Leo's as gun grabbing jack booted thugs,most Leo's are very pro gun because we see what the reality of "gun control" does out on the streets and are firm believers in upholding the Constitution.

Not a fan of open carry for tactical reasons. Element of surprise and gun retention are two huge ones. A large number of cops who are trained in weapon retention techniques get killed with their own gun every year.

It has its place out in the wilderness hunting and shooting but in the day to day grind it's more of a hindrance.

Yeah I support it philosophically but I'm not a fan. Not out in the general public.

It's sad that that is how people form their opinion on people nowadays. They watch some YouTube video of some cop getting set up to look like a ***** and all of a sudden we're these bullies who go around harassing everyone and have our weapons half out of the holster every traffic stop.

There have been plenty of times, especially because I work in the sticks, where I wouldn't have minded an extra gun at my call. Had to do a building search with me and one other officer for a 2 story with basement house. If a law abiding citizen had a gun watching the back door it would have at least put my mind at ease about him...the key holder and his wife were outside waiting for us to clear, and the possible burg suspect could run out and take aim at the key holders outside.

Anyways my point is people think us LEOs want less guns but for me it's more guns is fine just get the proper training. Don't get me wrong there have been plenty of instances where I wonder how this person was even allowed to handle a firearm...

I feel the same way. Nobody has to know but me. It's just easier that way. Plus if someone walks into a store, intent on robbing it, and there you are with an open carry.....guess who just became the first target.

Criminals never expect victims to be armed, and that is an advantage.

Truth.

The same people who always meant us harm still do. And the good folks still don't - armed or not.
