Ft Collins, CO –-(Ammoland.com)- “Sheep don’t trust sheepdogs, any more than they trust wolves” ~ Greg Hamilton

Comments on unarmed cops, from a friend and NYPD detective:

“Here, administrators and politicians put us under a microscope, relentlessly. We are ‘expendable,’ and our lives and health are far less important than certain political careers.

In addition, local prosecutors know and understand that much favorable publicity attaches to taking-down cops.

When you are armed while off-watch, and become involved in a deadly-force incident, particularly one involving gunfire, a breathalyzer is instantly administered. And, when you blow anything but a ‘00,’ it will be a ‘problem.’

Suddenly, you’re the headline!

Attending a concert, or taking my kids to monster truck rally?

Another ‘problem!’

Virtually all our ‘event arenas’ prohibit concealed carry on-premises, even by police.

We are ‘social beings,’ just like everyone else. We are supposed to be always willing and able to assert our office and ‘serve and protect’ the community, no matter where we are, whom we’re with, nor what activity we’re engaged in.

But when unarmed, there is not much we can do.”

My comment:

Liberal politicians are, by choice, sheep, and they insist on a sheep-like attitude from everyone they can intimidate. They despise police officers, and everyone else who displays qualities of bravery and personal honor, that they themselves lack.

Within that prison of circumstance, there is no perfect solution, nor even a particularly good one.

As far as going armed in certain venues, sometimes we just have to ignore stupid “rules,” designed by sheep to make us all perpetual victims.

For those of us who enjoy an occasional glass of wine or a cocktail, it needs to be the last thing you do before going to bed.

But after all, is said and done, instant access to deadly weapons is still the difference between life and death. Forget that at your peril!

“Never call an unarmed man ‘security’” ~ Dave Grossman

    In my 2 cents worth and being an American citizen, ex-military & believing & thinking the Constitution is the law of the land. I believe a Cop’s job is no different then any other job, once you take off that uniform you are no longer above the law or a step above anybody else. I used to carry an M16 & a colt .45 in the military, now that I’m out I know longer get to do that although I do carry my Glock were ever I go now. Point being no matter what your day job is everybody should… Read more »

    I hope you did not vote for trump, then. He is spending like its free, and handing out tax breaks to the rich. He also said “I like to take the guns first, then worry about the civil liberties.” And before you call me a snowflake, or that it is a lie, watch. Your kind of guy?

    Watch him say it right here: https://www.nytimes.com/2018/02/28/us/politics/trump-gun-control.html

    Maybe we could strike a deal: we will support sensible gun laws in exchange for sensible abortion laws…surely our progressive liberal brothers and sisters would support that…after all, isn’t the whole idea to save lives…

    When you hear of a massacre, it rarely happens outside a “gun free zone”. Riots, racial or political, don’t happen outside municipalities where citizens have the option of arming themselves. Crime statistics prove that criminals are not all that dumb, preferring victims unarmed by law rather than the possibility of encountering someone who might dispense fatal justice on the spot.
    Those who decry the right to keep and bear arms loudest are the same people who would use the threat of armed government to eliminate all other rights.

    Be careful, last night 11-13-14, A movie theatre in Evanston IL. was stormed by police, on a possible active shooter call. Everyone was detained and searched for firearms. In IL., all public movie theatres are soft targets with No Firearm postings on their entrances and exits. Sad state of affairs, considering that you have to have a CCL along with a FOID card to carry in public, but not in specified soft targets. Seems that a fine line was crossed last night in Evanston IL… You really do not have a chance to protect your self in these publicly posted… Read more »

    I have adopted a policy of no carry, no go. People who wish to disarm me, to make me just another helpless victim, cannot have my business!

    ” Liberal politicians are, by choice, sheep, and they insist on a sheep-like attitude from everyone they can INTIMIDATE.” Key word at the end of this statement. It indicates that the liberal politicians are WOLVES in sheep’s clothing. Deception is a primary tool used by the Tyrant. We must equally apply our own deception against the Tyrant by being SHEEPDOGS in sheep’s clothing. The reason why the sheep no longer trust the sheepdog is because of the Nazi Goebbels tactic of telling a LIE long and often enough that it becomes the truth. The Leftist/Communist lame stream media (i.e. CNN,… Read more »

    Snowflakes should probably plug their ears or go to their safe rooms or whatever snowflakes do because firearms make for a safe, polite society. When firearms are common and allowed by law their is less crime especially violent crimes. It is in those gun free zones where you get killed. We need well-trained school personnel to protect our children while they are on campus. We need well- trained bus drivers and crossing guards, merchants and doctors to protect our precious progeny. Israel is a place where nearly everyone is required to be armed. They are surrounded by an adversary that… Read more »

    I think David Grossman also said “sheep only know two speeds. Grazing and stampede.” I personally think sheep are getting a bad rap. Liberals, however. Cant be slammed hard enough. The hate, they divide, they split, they think they are the only brains in the discussion, aka meaning they are elitists and know best for us peasants, have zero conscience, will pit anyone against another to get what they want, and their hunger for “sensible gun laws” “raising taxes, fees just on the rich for the teachers, cops firefighters and or cops.” problem is everybody is considered rich and their… Read more »

    I generally ignore postings at establishments. Or simply don’t patronize those establishments that are not firearm friendly. (I haven’t been in Target for years). I carry concealed, by it’s very nature, you cant see it. So, it generally isnt a problem. Also, the way our state law is, most places will tell you ” You cant have a firearm in here” and as long as your not some jerk and respond with, ” oh golly gee, I must have missed the sign. I’ll leave.” It isnt a problem. It also means planning a little. Out movie theater for example, it… Read more »

    I try not to patronize anti-gun places . The many that annoy me, the USPS stands out. It does not allow one even in parking lot if armed. If caught there, “golly gee” might not suffice. Just another one of us picked off. This yet but an example of the federal opinion of our population.

    When politicians visit “event arenas,” are their bodyguards unarmed? If not, why not? Doesn’t the law apply to everybody equally? (wink, wink!)

    Ah but you already know the answer to your question
