    Now I Know I Live In The Right Town...

    Conceal and Carry Classes Chief Xxx Xxxxxxx of the Silver Lake Police Department has announced that Firearms Training Officer, Xxxxx Xxxxxxx will be offering CCW training classes in Silver Lake.

    Yea actually my "small town" is classified as a "village"... I just call it a small town because compared to where I moved from (Racine) it is small.... Real small.

    Too bad our wanna be village that is a suburb of madistan did not have a constitution supporting chief. he thinks no one should have firearms except leo....
    Yea I hear that there is a lot of that ^^^^ going around...

    I never said it was ok my point was it is better to have a local PD in favor of CCW than against it...

    Also I am thinking that the "salaried public servant" is no doubt (at the very least) a DOJ qualified instucrtor....

    Just Sayin...

    The more police chiefs that support their departments providing CCW training to citizens, the more support we will have with a group that has historically been against the right. Maybe at some point the state police chiefs organization will get a new legislative gofer. The current one, like Doyle and Barrett, is a WAVE award winner.

    When in danger you can dial 911 and hope for the police to arrive a few minutes later armed with guns.
    Why do police carry guns?

    Yep, follow the money, first property, income, sales taxes and now another tax to CCW. Any money of any description to the grubberment is a tax, whatever it may be called.

    Face it, you need one of the forms of training to get the permit. If they are willing to offer it for $65, then so be it. This isn't a tax, but rather a fee dor a service rendered. Any money that these small towns bring in help defer tax increases in the long run when the fiscal year comes to the end and they are, or are not in the red.

    I agree that having a pro-Constitution LEA / LEO is better than not,
    but unless that instructor is doing classes on his own time, and NOT in a taxpayer-funded facility, he shouldn't be charging anything.
    His wages are paid by taxpayers, & the email & phone listed to contact him are paid by taxpayers, & I'm going to bet that he'll hold class in a taxpayer-funded building.
    So why should people pay yet again for services?
    (Oh, and he'll be using the curriculum developed by DOJ, at taxpayer expense, so there's no cost to him there.)

    Correct, clear and concise on all points. We agree.

    Actually, more to the point, who gets the $60? The town, or the instructor? If this is being done on town time, and in a town facility, by a town employee, I suspect it is more revenue for the town???? not the instructor??? no?

    If it is being on the instructors time, then the instructor earns it, not the town...

    More opportunites for training = more concealed carry licenses = more political power

    It just occured to me: Having a local police office give the training class might go a long way to lowering the incidents of misunderstanding and "you got a license for thet son"? Don't you think?

    Beats the heck out of Blue River my little village. It doesn't even have a police force so them made themselves safer by prohibiting carry weapons on any village property or buildings. I tried to get a marksmanship class going for the local scout troop sponsored by the American Legion and that got shot down before I had it completely out of my mouth. Pretty good considering there is a rifle range a mile away and a lot of hunters/fishermen in town.
