Washington, DC—Congress has passed and sent on to Obama a bill that would allow more former or retired cops to carry concealed weapons in all 50 states.
The bill gives a broader definition to a retired law enforcement officer to include those who served as Amtrack officers and several federal agencies. The bill reduces the requirements for time on the job from a minimum of 15 to ten years of service.
Former officers suffering from disabilities related to mental condition, drug addiction and felony convictions, will still not be allowed to possess firearms.
