Cops everywhere sign on to enforce the law and keep the peace. As a cop you take an oath of office to defend the state and federal Constitutions and to faithfully perform your duties. Your first duty is that of a protector. Arresting people for petty gun violations and confiscating their only protection is counter-productive and in serious conflict with that effort.
In many cities there is a serious conflict between the Constitutions and the gun laws passed by politicians. Americans have a right to keep and bear arms and too often politicians simply refuse to accept that and want you to knowingly violate their Civil Rights. It’s time to put the Constitution before politicians and their ignorant whims.
No matter if you’re a local cop or an agent with the BATFE simply stop arresting people for vague technical violations and carrying guns for self-protection. Instead concentrate on criminals with guns or those fools introducing guns into arguments, drug dens or involved in other misbehavior.
A good beginning is to back off those middle-aged gun collectors for failure to register or those with guns in the Gun Free Zones unless other criminality or unjustified violence is involved.
This is a way you can do your part to keep a safe and strong America. You also give these Americans a better ability to survive a criminal attack. Nobody will give you Department Commendations for this but you will be in a better position when you get your turn at St. Peter’s gate.
