This illustrates one of the concerns I have with law enforcement. If tomorrow, the Congress bypasses the Constitutional process of banning guns (which makes the banning illegal), it will not be the military I fear, but police. For too long we have not curbed the power of police in this country to the point where they have no real issue in arresting you because somone told them too. Not because it is legal under the Constitution of the US or their state, but just because someone said do it. And they also don't have an issue with pointing a gun at a citizen. I've said this before and I'll say it again, I have first hand knowlege of how your typical LEO behaves, thinks, and acts.

Good officers last only two years and then they either succumb to the peer pressure to go to the dark side or they leave. Their pay is crappy so the only way to make more money is up the ladder or be on the take. Either method results in dirty hands. By & large, they're not very educated. The really good smart ones obtain advanced degrees and leave the patrol car behind. So what does that leave us? Undereducated, no drive, no goals, under paid people that have a chip on their shoulder that they gladly display by being God when they pull you over. Here's a tip - after 9:00pm, if you're pulled over, the Officer has only ONE GOAL - to make a felony arrest.

Depends on where.... in Maryland, the cops are starting at 45,000.

A decorated war veteran on a Boy Scout hike with his 15-year-old son was arrested alongside a Texas country road after a police officer accused him of “rudely displaying” a firearm.

Army Master Sgt. C.J. Grisham told Fox News he was illegally disarmed by members of the Temple Police Dept. - even though he held the proper permits to carry his weapons.

Grisham and his son were on a 10-mile hike in a rural area populated by wild boars and cougars. He was carrying an AR-15 rifle and a .45 caliber pistol.

He was charged with resisting arrest - even though...
