What makes them any different? They are RETIRED. No longer a police officer. The Safe Act should be repealed for everyone!!

Really Chuck..Some of these retired officers have been carrying a gun for over 30 years. Some have even taught firearms training and you somehow think their not qualified. Just because they retire does not mean they have forgotten all their training. And do you really think this new gun restriction law is going change anything? Oh wait I'm sure all the criminals will follow the law because that's what they do, Right!!
