Police chiefs are controlled by liberal mayors. Sheriffs are elected and generally say what they think

They should have firearms safety courses as optional course in high school to supplement sex ed. We waste an entire semester on sexual education but something as crucial as knowing how to properly handle a firearm goes untaught.

I take it you're not from Chicago or any other major city. No, obviously not everyone should have a gun, do you need examples.

My husband is retired law enforcement. You got it right with your post.

Certainly the way it is here. The police always lie to people about the gun laws. Our sheriff encourages people to carry.

Even the FBI says that legal gun owners are the least likely to commit a crime.
