I called a few different municipal police departments, my sheriff, and the sheriffs of the neighboring counties about this. They all seemed amused at the prospect of their officers carrying handguns with trigger locks in place. The most often repeated reason given: officers need to be able to use their guns at a moment’s notice without fumbling in a high-stress situation to unlock it. I’ll ask a few officers I know when I see them tonight.
Your premise is faulty.
You evidently missed the sarcasm positively FLOODING throughout Conservative Warrior’s post.
I see why sarcasm tags are so needed on FR. If you took that post as anything but sarcasm you are among the severely sarcasm impaired.
