As this report entails an entire website dedicated to exposing the nonsense of giving law enforcement officers national concealed carry special exemptions while concealed carry prohibitions continue to be enforced against the people, this file is simply here as a marker so people can find the site in our search engine and in our police-related archives.

While numerous police organizations push for special, illegal exemptions from concealed carry laws for their members, plenty of them are not gun owners' friends.

The right of the people to keep and bear arms is for THE PEOPLE. Anyone who has a problem with that has a problem with me.
