We should all respect the opinion of our local LEO's; even if it means that we must act responsibly and (shudder) arm ourselves.tell you what, I've run into some real pricks on the GRPD and WPD forces(no sarcasm). but, the nerve of this cop, daring to suggest that law-abiding citizens should carry guns. I mean, there would be blood in the streets, wild-west style shootouts, etc..... WTF is his problem??? (sarcasm evident I hope).
all in all, I'm very glad that they were in the alley and not my street, as random shooting, 30 feet from my house, would pretty much require me to intervene, and I thank God every day that I don't have to.
ETA: I'm in agreement with JBURGII, well done considering the situation.
