When Bridgeport parents angrily opposed a police firing range across the street from a city elementary school recently, they were not setting a precedent.

There're more bullets flying in bridgeport than there would be in ANY range.

The idiot parents don't want cops carrying guns to the range for training, but they seemingly have no problems with cops carrying guns to protect their little mistakes and misbegottens.

Exactly. With police in the area the drug deals, prostitution and roaming gangs just might be affected. It's going to be much harder for the locals to conduct business! Gee.....too bad, but maybe a safer neighborhood.

You've just answered WHY the locals don't want the range - more cops in the area means it WOULD be harder for the locals to conduct business (drug deals & hookers).

Maybe the drug dealers want to use the range to be better killers.

You are right. I stand, corrected: I shouldn't consider bridgeport's uniformed thugs to be LAW-ABIDING uniformed thugs.

What the good town of Bridgeport needs is a good sheriff like Joe Arpaio, Maricopa county, Arizona. Joe knows how to handle the 'roudies'. He isn't liked by the 'bad guys' but he is loved by the honest locals.
Maybe he should be nominated for the Presidency! He certainly can't do any worse then what's in the White House now.
