Police Officials Betray Their Constituents on Right-to-Carry Reciprocity

Fairfax, VA – -(Ammoland.com)- On April 19 2018, the International Association of Chiefs of Police sent Congress a letter expressing their opposition to the Concealed Carry Reciprocity Act of 2017 (H.R. 38/S. 446).

This legislation would ensure that a person who is licensed to carry a concealed firearm in one state could do so in all other states. The letter was adopted by 473 officials from all over the country.

The list of supporters includes officials from states that either already recognize the permits of all other states or do not require a permit to exercise the Right-to-Carry. As out of state permit holders are already allowed to carry within these states, the officials’ actions only serve to curtail the rights of their residents.

In short, the following officials have abandoned their constituents in order to curry favor from out-of-state political interests: [did your local official make this list, if so you might want to contact him and let him know you disagree.]

  • 42 thoughts on “Police Officials Betray Their Constituents on Right-to-Carry Reciprocity

    1. Ahhhh guys and gals, don’t knock em’ so hard. They’re just standing up of their departments job security. If universal concealed carry was a reality, crimes would likely decrease somewhat drastically, perhaps putting those chiefs or some of their crews out of work.

    2. Reciprocity is a matter of trust in the standards for CCW from state to state. It is the lack of trust of its citizens that prevents the crossing of certain state borders. If a citizen of state “A” has past a background investigation, properly trained in the use of and the legal responsibilities of deadly force and can not cross into state “B”, a serious lack of trust exists between the two.

    3. Let each of these signatories evidence their resolve to keep the rest of us safe by fighting for legislation prohibiting all “chiefs”, LEOs and peace officers from carrying off duty and post retirement, and tax collectors and code enforcement of every kind regardless of title from possessing weapons of any kind.

    4. Yyyyyyyeah so why are my Life Membership dues being (conceptually) spent training these very same badged betrayers, through the NRA’s law enforcement training division?

      Who does the NRA leadership think is going to be enforcing all the gun-confiscation laws NRA claims to oppose?

      How can you claim to oppose unjust laws while openly supporting the enforcers of those same laws?

      1. Actually your “dues” are not used for such programs.
        As for reciprocity, Kansas recognizes every other states’ license. More so, in Kansas any US Citizen from any state has Constitutional Carry in Kansas if they are over 21.
        Illinois was ordered by the 7th Circuit to pass some constitutional gun law within 180 days or all their laws would eb unenforceable. Illinois did pass a “shall issue” concealed carry law and even has a non-resident license. But even though Illinois was my home state and I had one of te first FOIDs almost 50 years ago, I can’t even APPLY for an IL CCH since I don’t live in a “special state.”
        We [ I ] need HR 38 to be law. While they are at it the hearing proection act needs to be law too.

    5. why all the upset about a legal carry. If the person goes from his state to another state. His or her CCW should be good enough. This person has passed back ground checks. Attended a shooting school to learn the laws he or she must remember.They are of good moral background. They mean no harm to the citizens of the state they are visiting.

      1. Kenneth, the problem lies in the requirements to get a CCW vari from state to state. Illinois for example requires 16 hours of class instruction and qualification at a shooting range. Tennessee requires 8 hrs class time plus qualification at a shooting range. Some state only require 4 hours of class, some require only on line class with no range qualification (bad idea). While I am in favor of a nationwide CCW, it would have to require at least some class instruction time and enough range time to provide proof the applicant can hit what they shoot at.

        1. There’s an easy and safe answer to this concern: Constitutional Carry. 14 states now provide this option for their citizens and have lower incidents of violence and crime (http://nccapitolconnection.com/2017/02/24/some-of-the-lowest-violent-crime-rate-states-have-constitutional-carry/). Not saying they weren’t that way to begin with but Constitutional Carry has not caused any new problems. Think about it, bad guys are already carrying concealed. Providing the option for good guys to carry also will just give the bad guys more to worry about in their victim selection process and, perhaps, encourage them to pursue a less dangerous career path.

    6. For whatever reasons, sellouts. The worst kind, too, because each one violated an Oath to those they swore to protect by the act of this sellout. Hard to justify ANY forgiveness. These move to the side of the ledger the Constitution speaks to, and within the very Oath they swore: “…enemies, foreign and DOMESTIC…”. This is harsh judgement, but as a retired member of the law enforcement community, I reserve the most critical standards for us, ALL of us.

    7. Police Cheifs are town and city board ” lackeys”… They only have the job because they will do the political will of their masters. Often times they are underqualified asskissers and wholly inadequate.
      You all need to remember that ” police” are code enforcement and revenue collectors for the local corrupt courts…all of them are corrupt .

    8. Me doth smell a RAT! 473 ODIOUS ones, to be more precise!
      I find it curious however, that CA, HI, IL and NY are conspicuosly missing from the list/letter…
      Hmmmmmm indeed, no?

    9. Police Chiefs are not usually “independent” in their thinking or actions. They often serve at the whims of their political “masters.” I would wager that the great majority of the signatories have a Democrat liberal for a boss.

      1. Nope, just this one letter signed by 13 Texans!

        Data Technician Ii John Lara, Texas Dps Crime Records Service, Austin, TX
        Chief of Police Art Acevedo, Houston Police Department, Houston, TX
        Chief Michael R. Baldwin, Hudson Oaks Police Department, Hudson Oaks, TX
        Administrative Assistant III Gina Seales, Texas Department of Public Safety, Midland, TX
        Chief of Police Wade G. Goolsby, Waxahachie TX
        Police Department, Waxahachie, TX
        Chief of Police Victor Araiza, El Paso ISD Police Dept., El Paso , TX
        Police Chief Will Johnson, Arlington Police Department, Arlington, TX
        Customer Spport Specialist II Margaret Garner Westling, Texas Department of Public Safety, Austin, TX Contractor Virginia L. Healer, Texas Department Of Public Safety, Austin, TX
        Sr Acct VI Terry Nystrom, Texas Department of Public Safety, Austin, TX
        Evidence Technician Jesus Leal, Texas Department of Public Safety, Garland, TX
        Sr. Trooper Adrian J. Garza, Texas Department Of Public Safety, Pearland, TX

        1. Just like I figured. Acevedo is THE WORST Heine Smoocher!!! Also looks like LOTS of FEMALE DPS Desk Jockeys with BIG, IMPORTANT (to them) titles. Work the rape kits ladies and stay the hell out of politics!!!

      2. Just none reported so far. I can GUARANTEE that Austin, Dallas & Houston Chiefs would have signed on if they had known about it OR they asked that their names not be provided to the public. Houston’s Chief Art Acevedo (formerly Austin’s) is the BIGGEST Obama/Anti-Gun ass kiss that there is.

        1. @Clark, You don’t even own your own car, what do you know about being a landlord? And you have never been south of New York City, so what would you know of the great state of Texas? Nor, do you have your authors’ quotes straight.
          Have another shot, go back to sleep and we’ll see you next week.

    10. 4 chiefs had to go and embarrass Indiana. We already recognize all other states. Why not find another way to advertise your ignorance, chiefs? Indiana leads the nation in license to carry saturation so you would think all our chiefs would have a sound understanding. I apologize to the rest of the country for the 4 chiefs lack of knowledge on out gun laws.

    11. Two Kansas police chiefs…
      Chief of Police Michael J. Inlow, Meade Police Department, Meade, KS, Chief of Police Dennis P. Butler, Ottawa Police Department, Ottawa, KS.
      From towns that nobody has heard or cares about. Most likely none of the rank and file police officers in those towns are allowed to make a political statement while wearing or identifying as a police offer or they lose their job. The mayor hires the police chief .
      Meade, KS population about 1,800. Located southwest of Dodge City about 45 miles. If you ask the people in Meade, many carry a handgun or rifle everyday. Even in Kansas there are high schools with an enrollment greater than 1,800.

    12. 95% of these are “placed” public officials on the BULLSHIT list, put in place by the highest bidder. These are the bought and paid for mouthpieces saying and doing what they are told, nothing more. These votes are completely USELESS.

    13. Unfortunately the police chief is the reflection of the majority political party of a city. Again ‘this is usually a liberal
      anti second amendment position with a majority of cities today.

    14. What is with NC and UT? The recruiters worked hard there and forgot other anti gun states?
      Most Chiefs of Police, are political animals rather than great policemen. By political, I mean they will bend over backward to satisfy city officials. They are generally untouchable by voters, unlike a sheriff, of which there are few on this list.

    15. As another reader noted, this list is comprised almost entirely of police chiefs or their minions, very few elected sheriffs. The only vile, despicable creature I trust less than an unelected bureaucrat is an unelected bureaucrat with a gun or who wants to take my guns and negate my creator-given, Constitutionally-codified natural (Bill of) Rights. They are progressive commie stooges all! I pray that the day of reckoning comes soon for them.

    16. What are we not seeing here thay we would expect? Nothing from Oregon, or even Khalifornia. Very interesting. Makes me wonder who is behind this. I can tell you most if the chiefs and sheriffs here in Oregon are rabidly against socialism and emforcomg any new anti-2a gun laws, so at least we have thay going for us.

      1. Here in California, most Chiefs and Sheriffs are pro 2A in RURAL counties. Unfortunately, we have no representation in the state legislature, executive, or judicial branches with the rare exception of one here and there. The control is totally with the major metropolitan areas where people live totally different lives from ours. Our progressive Moonbeam Cartel couldn’t care less what we need here in the sticks.

        IF YOU ARE A CALIFORNIA VOTER AND YOU ARE SICK AND TIRED OF THE ‘PROGRESSIVE WAY’ …. VOTE ALLEN for GOV and BAILEY for AG…. EVEN IF YOU ARE A DEMOCRAT, IF YOU LIVE IN RURAL CALIFORNIA, YOUR RIGHTS ARE BEING IGNORED. IF YOU WANT YOUR FREEDOM BACK, DUMP THE PROGRESSIVES!!!

    17. The New Hampshire Association of Chiefs of Police has consistently fought against legislation that reduced their members ability to arbitrarily deny a concealed carry license, fought against “Stand Your Ground” legislation, fought against “constitutional carry” and supported any legislation that expanded restrictions on the second amendment. NH residents should keep that in mind the next time they are “asked” for a donation to the organization.

    18. Police Chiefs are hired rent a cops enforcing the will of the mayor of the city or town they live in. they are NOT elected officials and do NOT answer to the public. you want these idiots fired? raise cain at the mayors office.

    19. I see the current Chief of my old department is on the list, Springfield, Mo. Sad day, but progressives are everywhere. I remember several officers during my time there that were anti-gun, all the while carrying one every day on duty. They preferred telling the citizens to just carry a bat….hahahaha

    20. I see the DemocRATic communist/muslem party controllers in Maryland are not listed here. Maryland is SUPPOSED to be a “MAY ISSUE” state for concealed carry of weapons. HOWEVER, it is nigh onto IMPOSSIBLE for a LEGAL LAW ABIDING American CITIZEN to obtain a “carry permit”.

    21. And none from SD.

      The title of this piece is misleading – Police Chiefs, who make up the vast majority of the list above, do not have constituents. The citizenry don’t elect police chiefs; police chiefs are not responsible to the citizenry.

        1. Something MUST BE WRONG with this list where not one Chief of Police from the People’s Rupublic of New Joisey or the Soviet State of New York sign this letter. Impossible!
