Retired Law Enforcement Appeal to SAFE Act
Posted in the Utica Forum
#1 May 23, 2013
From the article: "...exempt retired state and federal law enforcement officers from a new ban on certain semi-automatic guns and large capacity magazines"
If they are retired, they are no longer serving and should be considered a citizen, same as you and I. What makes retired law enforcement so special?

Well for one they have handled guns all their lives. They are familiar with weapons of all shapes and sizes, and statistically law enforcement officers are least likely to be involved in a crime.

Because of HR218 - The Federal Officer's Safety Act.
They have experience, training, knowledge, judgement and ability to step up and protect someone or their property, or perhaps save a life. More so than an average citizen that purchases a weapon, fires a box of rounds through it, and puts it under their bed or in their glove box for protection, and empties it into the floor or ground before ever getting it at point, due to emotional excitement. Have you not heard of "Buck Fever". A gun, especially the right one, is like a parachute. If you don't have one when you need one, you probably won't need one again. You don't want to have every possible means of protection for you and your loved ones at hand, even if it's due to a former law enforcement having an advantage you don't? Do I detect jealousy? I certainly hope no one loses their life due to a vote based on jealousy!

SREGGIN are a disease that needs cleaning.
The SREGGIN are vile scum that starve children to death an burn witches.
They are the disease of America, the leeches.
Blacks are seven times more likely than people of other races to commit murder, and eight times more likely to commit robbery.
* When blacks commit crimes of violence, they are nearly three times more likely than non-blacks to use a gun, and more than twice as likely to use a knife.
* Hispanics commit violent crimes at roughly three times the white rate, and Asians commit violent crimes at about one quarter the white rate.
* The single best indicator of violent crime levels in an area is the percentage of the population that is black and Hispanic.
* Of the nearly 770,000 violent interracial crimes committed every year involving blacks and whites, blacks commit 85 percent and whites commit 15 percent.
* Blacks commit more violent crime against whites than against blacks. Forty-five percent of their victims are white, 43 percent are black, and 10 percent are Hispanic. When whites commit violent crime, only three percent of their victims are black.
* Blacks are an estimated 39 times more likely to commit a violent crime against a white than vice versa, and 136 times more likely to commit robbery.
* Blacks are 2.25 times more likely to commit officially-designated hate crimes against whites than vice versa.
* Only 10 percent of youth gang members are white.
* Hispanics are 19 times more likely than whites to be members of youth gangs. Blacks are 15 times more likely, and Asians are nine times more likely.
Weapons violations are committed by Blacks at nearly 5 times the rate for Whites;
Blacks are caught receiving or buying stolen property at nearly 5 times the rate for Whites;

Nearly 25% of all Black males between the ages of 20 and 29 are in jail or on probation - this does not include those wanted or awaiting trial;
For all violent crimes considered together, Blacks are almost 5.5 times more likely to commit violent criminal acts than Whites; all this according to the FBI Uniform Crime Report.

Attention Small Penis Gun Club members:
Be careful when cleaning "you gun" if you rub it too fast it may go off.

I have 200 Shot Guns, loaded and aimed at my front door.
Trip wires and Infra Red Cameras(hope it works)......Uh Oh.....how do I get out of here?
#13 May 23, 2013
Take a job as a cop. then retire. Then you too can get this privilege.
....All these years of dealing with scum-bags, and then in retirement you want retired law enforcement to be sitting targets?
#14 May 23, 2013
With that attitude, I don't think you should be now, and I'm betting you're not.

Least likely to be charged by former co-workers,you mean...

Here is the problem with this train of thought. If retired law enforcement officers are considered capable of handling large capacity magazines and combat weapons, then why can't veterans of the armed forces? And if we exempt veterans from this law, why not exempt firefighters from this law as well, because they fulfill their obligation to society and put their life on the line?
At the end of the day, everyone is a civilian. In plain clothes, you can't tell an off-duty police officer or army vet on leave from anybody else on the street.
Dividing gun owners into two classes is not going to go over well.

Having a CCW can cause problems for the carrier. If o shoot you I am going to have to face up to being arrested, go through court system, possible jail time, legal fees, publicity, etc. Better to avoid this and dont carry.

Statistically retired cops are more dangerous with their guns actually, us vets and manufacturers have permits that the state of NY can't touch. Check the FBI uniform crime statistics so you learn.
