Quote- SgtLumpy - You seem focused on the "Oh I see a gun" issue. That may be an issue in your area, or maybe it's just specific to your personal way of viewing things. It's not in my state, nor in my personal way of viewing things.
SgtLumpy I think you see things from a police officers point of view which is the other side of the law then normal civilians see and experience. Normal citizens run a much higher risk of going to prison for incidents involving firearms in all states.
Even if you are a retired police you still get special treatment that is why many companies hire retired police to deal with security issues.
Felonies are not something to take lightly. They destroy lives and families.
