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...
