On the one hand, yes this was stupid.
On the other hand, so police are just better than everyone else? They can have a firearm but everyone else can’t be trusted with such power?
No, everyone should be the same.
Except for felons.
And pedophiles. To hell with them.
And Canadians. (I’m just kidding.)
Yeah, I’m kind of torn on this one also. Very stupid on the part of the restaurant assistant manager, and I’m glad the police chief is sticking it to the local hoplophobe at Denny’s.
But on the other hand, Illinois law would have required that these officers arrest me if I were to be caught carrying my TN-legal concealed carry pistol in IL. So they already received better treatment than this law-abiding citizen would...
“On the other hand, so police are just better than everyone else? They can have a firearm but everyone else cant be trusted with such power?”
The serious question to ask is “Why do the police need any firearms?”
The answer to that question is the same as why every citizen legally able to own a firearm should be allowed to do so.
Think you need a correction. Felons should still be in jail if they cannot have their Rights restored.
Pretty soon, under dumbo’s reign, we may all be ‘felons’
