    Off-duty police officers banned from carrying firearms at New York State Fair

    So random quasi on topic.... Has anyone been to the Erie county fair yet? Do they have metal detectors? Asking for a friend....

    Off-duty police officers banned from carrying firearms at New York State Fair

    I think in a round about way you just made my point and agreed with me. My point is the powers that be grant police special rights that go above and beyond what citizens get. I'm not talking about police during the course of their on duty working time that is a different discussion but...

    Off-duty police officers banned from carrying firearms at New York State Fair

    Not a single person in this thread or forum is saying or advocating that retired or off duty police "can't" be armed. No one is saying disarm retired or off duty police. We probably all feel that retired or off duty police should be able to carry exactly just as regular citizens can. Same...

    I known a person or 2 who failed the psych portion of the qualification. I understand police go through a thorough hiring and screening process. (Although the process in those instances was probably justified they were a little off in the first place) Fair enough, I may have misunderstood your...

    Off-duty police officers banned from carrying firearms at New York State Fair

    I have no problem with just playing by the rules of the game. If you're given a "privilege" that others can't enjoy to use and take advantage of. That's all well in good. My frustration is trying to rationalize and support why it's ok and a good system to have separate classes of citizens in...

    It also helps that those providing security are state employees who are being paid to perform that task and are not held to the same legal standards a private citizen would be accountable for. I still am not understanding the logic of why you keep defaulting to "it's ok that off duty police...

    I carry a gun. I know that in doing so i will have it ony person if I ever find myself in a stressful situation. The geographic location or venue where it occurs should be irrelevant. What's the difference if people carry at the fair or a mall or movie theater?

    Off-duty police officers banned from carrying firearms at New York State Fair

    I dont buy that for a second. We go through a year long process including interviews, references and background investigations. We have one of the strictest licensing processes in the country to be awarded the legal ability to carry a pistol. We have already proven we are trustworthy. What's...

    That's what I said earlier. The politicians are trying to placate their enforcers so as long as they get theirs to hell with everyone else they will fall in line.

    Nor do aggressive drunk jerk's at bars forget which bouncer banned them. Or unstable angry aggressive employees ever forget which boss fired them. Etc Everyone has their reasons or justification for being able to defend themselves. We shouldn't need justification for not wanting to be victims.

    No one is advocating taking away your ability. We are advocating treating all citizens the same. Same rules whether you are an off duty plumber, off duty cop, off duty bar bouncer, off duty mailman, off duty call center manager. It shouldn't matter. We should all have the rights to self defense...

    Off-duty police officers banned from carrying firearms at New York State Fair

    Best post in this entire thread. Police should flat out refuse to protect the politicians who feel entitled to protection and actively try to take away citizens rights to self protection. Politicians like hochul will be the first to try and restrict citizens from being able to defend...
