IIRC there are jurisdictions where a law enforcement officer is requied by law and or regulation to carry a firearm at all times in public places and aboard public transportation, under the theory that police officers are never entirely free of their duty in their jurisdiction.
Yes I know.
Honestly I don’t care. If they are not on duty they shouldn’t be allowed to do anything every other law abiding person can’t do.
the point isn’t increasing controls on cops, but decreasing controls on everyone else.
