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.

period

the point isn’t increasing controls on cops, but decreasing controls on everyone else.

Agree.

Thing is, in their jurisdiction they are never off-duty. If a crime happens in their view they have an obligation to act. As a civilian you have no such obligation.

My wife works in a school office. One morning she called and asked if I could drop off an envelope she had left on the kitchen table. Sure. She told the principal that she was going out to meet me at the curb. He asked why, I could come in. She told him that if I walked through the metal detector it might explode from overload. Said he laughed, shook his head and said he didn’t want to know.

That’s just it. They are never off duty within tehir jurisdiction, so they have an obligation to use lethal force when appropriate. The difference is the way in which ordinary citizens were once upon a time obligated to be armed as well and under somewhat limited obligations to use lethal force in appropriate circumstances in defense of other citizens. This civilian responsibility for public safety has been deprecated.
