18K Police Departments Urge Congress to Not Pass National Concealed Carry Bill

 

I’ve long lamented that the ‘natural’ allies in the resistance to the gun grabbers also have an unhealthy near-cult-like relationship to the very people who would enforce gun confiscation (and already are in some parts of America) in the first place.

These are the folks flying the Molan Labe flag right next to their “America is now the cops” black and white Murica with the blue line going through it flag.

If these ‘natural’ allies in the resistance to anti-gun culture and anti=gun laws is in doubt at just how true it is that the cops WILL FOLLOW orders and confiscate guns when the law tells them to do so, take a look at the police chiefs across America that are coming together, 18,000 police departments in total, to demand congress not to allow concealed carry laws to pass that would lift restrictions on people across different state borders.

They are using all of their weight, political power, authority, and even the trusty fear-porn tactic, to convince lawmakers not to extend the leash of the “citizens” by allowing them to “constitution carry” across the county.

Police chiefs implore Congress not to pass concealed-carry reciprocity gun law

The nation’s police chiefs are rising up against another conservative crime-fighting initiative, sending a letter to leaders of Congress on Thursday opposing a bill that would allow gun owners with concealed-carry permits in one state to carry their concealed weapons in all 50 states.

The letter from the International Association of Chiefs of Police, representing 18,000 police departments across the United States and Boston Police Commissioner William Evans, targets the “Concealed Carry Reciprocity Act,” which passed the House in December and is now assigned to the Senate Judiciary Committee. The letter is endorsed by 473 police officials from 39 states, from large departments such as Los Angeles and Atlanta to small departments such as Spanish Fork, Utah, and Falls Church, Va.

“This legislation,” the letter states, “is a dangerous encroachment on individual state efforts to protect public safety, and it would effectively nullify duly enacted state laws and hamper law enforcement efforts to prevent gun violence.”
