Cotton, Herrell to introduce 'cop killer' bills making it a federal crime to kill any law enforcement officer​


"GOP Rep. Yvette Herrell of New Mexico is expected to introduce a bill Tuesday that would make it a federal crime for someone to murder a federal, state or local law enforcement officer -- and call for any person convicted to serve life in prison or receive the death penalty, Fox News has learned."

This I would never expect from persons that took an oath to the constitution. Why do they think law enforcement officers are entitled more rights than the average citizen?

Let's ask cops in California, who may legally possess and purchase firearms not permitted to the average citizen by California law.

perhaps the six year hiatus from the forum might have slipped your mind, but did i miss your cite for such a statement per forum policy since you alluded to CA statutory criteria.
