But yet Obama wants the police (and retired cops, no less) to be the only ones with guns.<quoted text>
i WOULDN'T ARGUE WITH YOU THAT our police can be very heavy handed at times. Likely a result of so many crimes, perhaps tied to drug laws. I learned when young the best course is a low profile and to obey traffic laws, keeps your encounters with the police to an absolute minimum.
The police never seem to be disciplined either.
Who protects us from them?
