And the "LEOSA" the federal Law Enforcement Officers Safety Act which allows qualified retired police to carry concealed anywhere in the USA. But there's an exemption that if local state or federal laws prohibit carrying firearms in certain areas except by sworn active officers then retired police can not carry guns nor can those citizens or officers with concealed hand gun permits
The "LEOSA" and the exception to carrying firearms by retired police or concealed handgun permit citizens from the United States Code
(b) This section shall not be construed to supersede or limit the laws of any State that—
(1) permit private persons or entities to prohibit or restrict the possession of concealed
firearms on their property; or
(2) prohibit or restrict the possession of firearms on any State or local government property, installation, building, base, or PARK
Fairfax Counties BOS gave Fairfax Retired Deputies a horrible "present" when they passed NO GUNS In County buildings parks and even on park trails putting the public's life your life or loved ones life at risk on secluded park trails making the trails much more unsafe by disallowing by law your experienced armed presence
YOU carry a gun on Fairfax park trails , your breaking the law , sure the code of the long line of blue may help , but you can't count on that ! Besides why should one who's life work was spent enforcing the laws of Virginia at times at risk of their life , turn into a forced criminal for defending themselves !
Additionally only sworn officers and other government agents can be exempted from gun laws and those with permits and if the citizens with permits are also retired police under the LEOSA .
Carve outs for retired police only to carry guns are unconstitutional as retirees are no long sworn agents of the government ! That's one big reason the Democrats assault weapons ban in congress is unconstitutional as it has such a retired police carve out for certain officers who are retired
There is only type of citizenship under the US constitution , there is no 1st 2nd or 3rd classes of citizenship. That's only something Democrats can come up with
The Current Assault weapons ban in congress
This is a unconstitutional carve out. These exempted retired officers are no longer sworn agents of the government and can not be granted superior citizenship rights under the constitution as a retired benefit when citizens at large are denied their right to keep and bear arms under the US constitutions 2nd amendment
The Democrats current assault weapons ban in congress
“(4) Paragraph (1) shall not apply to—
(C) the possession, by an individual who is retired in good standing from service with a law enforcement agency and is not otherwise prohibited from receiving a firearm, of a semiautomatic assault weapon—
“(i) sold or transferred to the individual by the agency upon such retirement; or
“(ii) that the individual purchased, or otherwise obtained, for official use before such retirement;
No political party has violated the constitutional rights of the American people as many times as The Democrats have, don't agree lets talk about Slavery Jim Crow and Segregation for a year or two plus numerous anti self defense -anti-gun laws they have passed just like the Fairfax trails gun ban and now they want fake "voting rights " to cancel legally cast votes by illegally cast votes when every legal US citizen can legally vote if the simply obey the laws . Government ID'S are widely available and free to those in need !What's the problem Democrats , your just trying to make problems up !.
I am not a member of the Virginia bar. I represent no one other them myself. I am an informed citizen of Virginia and the USA who wants the peoples constitutional rights upheld not suppressed unconstitutionally
