Could it be because they wear a uniform? I understand that they are ordinary citizens that help patrol areas with high crime rates and can and have made citizens arrests. They are trained in basic first aid, CPR, law, conflict resolution, communication, and basic martial arts.So why not in firearm use and safety?They have chapters all over the world and are endorsed by many large city mayors like Bloomberg in NYC. Patrolling with OC would be a great deterrent. Of course I'm talking about OC where it's legal. I think they would be a great help to police especially in high-crime areas like E. Palo Alto, Oakland, Richmond, and just about anywhere in LA. And since they carry radios, that should be their first line of defense. (call the police first)But in a situation where a life is in imminent danger, than they can react appropriately. Perps seeing GAs with OC I'll wager would make many criminals think twice before doing their crime. As I understand it the GAspatrol in pairs which would be difficult for a BG to take on a GA one on one. I wouldn't mind volunteering if I was allowed to OC.
