Assault Weapon Ban--Congressional Record (Fraternal Order of Police Supports Assault Weapons Ban)
Congressional Record ^ | September 13, 2004 | Cong. Jackson Lee

Posted on 02/13/2013 2:30:41 PM PST by ModelBreaker

"The assault weapon ban is supported by virtually every major law enforcement organization . . . as well as organizations including . . . The Fraternal Order of Police."

(Excerpt) Read more at books.google.com ...


TOPICS: News/Current Events
KEYWORDS: guncontrol; secondamendment
The Fraternal Order of Police has an active telephone donation campaign. I have donated to them before. I learned today they have consistently supported the Assault Weapons Ban and do to this day--in fact, the FOP is credited with assisting Biden in formulating the current drive to ban Assault Weapons. http://www.politico.com/politico44/2012/12/biden-no-reason-assault-weapons-ban-shouldnt-clear-152546.html.

This is to alert FREEPERS not to contribute to them even though they have "Police" in their name.

I’m still waiting for a cop to decline to respond to a call that is based on pure bullsh!t.

Never ever forget, the Constitution was written for the express purpose of protecting our rights from our government and from all law enforcement agencies.

Just a little nudge here or there and law enforcement will turn into “the Sheriff of Nottingham”.

FOP has always been a liberal suck-up group. They were Clinton’s butt-boys as well. Never donate to the commies

If they quit exempting former law enforcement from these rules I bet they wouldn’t jump on the bandwagon so quickly.

They have come off my list.
Why do these organizations think they own the right to dictate the rights of the citizens?

what is this “organization” or “organizations”?

association of police for pot?
association of police to abolish the constitution?
association of communist police?

seems all BS.

I have given 1000 thanks to the Texas Lege for delivering me and my neighbors out of Queen Sheila's 18th Congressional District last year. It was so humiliating to say, "I'm in her district" (I would never say, "Sheila Jackson Lee is my congresswoman" -- "What, the one with the snake on her head?" "That's called a 'crown weave', and that's because she thinks she's Cleopatra, Queen of the Nile.").

The woman is an embarrassment to the human race.

Fine, then let the “Fraternal Order of Police” ban all their Assaualt Rifles. I am sure the general public will be safer. I am fine with anybody who does not want Assualt Rifles getting rid of theirs. The rest is not their business.

Only place I’ve ever donated is to a few, few select cases the Law Enforcement Legal Defense Fund group on behalf of certain officers’ cases, who I believed were good officers that had really been screwed just for doing their job.

But that’s it.

Today’s law officers are not your friend. They sure as hell don’t regard the average citizen as their friend.

It’s a UNION. No different than other unions...

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Fraternal_Order_of_Police

From the link:

The Fraternal Order of Police (FOP) is a labor union consisting of sworn law enforcement officers in the United States. It claims a membership of over 325,000 members organized in 2100 local chapters (lodges), organized into local lodges, state lodges, and the national Grand Lodge.

The only means of support for the FOP is their bumper sticker sales.

Folks donating hoping the decal get the cop to give em a break for speeding.

Money donated to the Fraternal Order of Police through their professional fund raiser mostly goes to the people raising the money. They have nothing to do with police, or firemen, or any other organization they solicit for. Hang up on them. Most policemen have better insurance and retirement plans than I do, so they don’t need my money.

Again, you have a national organization speaking for everyone, when in fact, many FOP members do not agree with the national headquarters political stance. Just like many street cops do not agree with their chiefs or sheriffs political stance.

Anyone who trusts liberal big city police over a constitutional county sheriff deserves every misery delivered on them.

Naw, they’ll just lob an incendiary grenade, in short succession after a CS grenade launch into your domicile, and then bust out the marshmallows, while they’re all on edge.

Nobody gets placed on paid administrative leave in that scenario.

They’ll allow the press in 20 minutes later to report on your tragic and unfortunate demise.

SWAT is a city-sanctioned terror organization. Or a standing army, whichever you prefer.

That was an eye opener for me. I’m on their list. I’ll take the opportunity of their next call to let them know why they will never see another penny from the ModelBreaker household.
