“Chicago police officers are trained to use firearms to save lives and defend law-abiding citizens,” Chicago Fraternal Order of Police Prez Mike Shield told chicago.cbs.local. “It is an insult that a state certified law-enforcement officer cannot carry his duty weapon at an NFL event.” Does that mean that the existing ban against concealed carry for the general public now in effect at all NFL games throughout the country is not an insult against law-abiding citizens who want to defend themselves? The news org also quotes “two veteran Chicago police officers” who disagree with the policy. “If you don’t have someone that could respond to a deadly-force incident that could cause more lives to be in jeopardy,” one officer said. Someone like . . . a citizen with a concealed carry permit (where such things are required)? “You’re never just a spectator,” the other cop said. “Even when I’m off-duty, I’m supposed to get involved.” Maybe he should get involved with defending and extending gun rights for all Americans. Just sayin’.
