Just so we are clear... It is okay for that gun to be "on the street" for 15, 20 or 25 years while it is on your hip every day as an LEO.
But one day you retire, and now you and that weapon are suddenly transformed into a hazard to the general public?
Where do we find the Titanic minds that come to these conclusions?
My rifle and pistol are tools, I am the weapon.
