While speaking with a Sergeant of the department he asked me what the event was that I was concerned with...I told him it was the Second Amendment March. He said..."Right to Keep and Bear Arms?" I said yes, that's correct. He told me that there were many of 'them' who were quietly supportive of it but only quietly because they were public figures. I told him thank you very much, and that we appreciate it.
He didn't have to say that but it was very nice to hear. Especially from a Richmond City PD Sergeant.
On topic, I've talked to a few police officers in Richmond and they were supportive as well. One even told a guy that I was talking to that he could and should look into open carry.
