The Real Cop
Amendment Police Department
The goal of The Second Amendment Police Department is to provide a voice for
the working Police Officers of this nation. Traditionally, the nature of the
quasi-military organizations silence the officer by department regulations that
require all public statements be approved, first, by the Chief's office.
There are times, however, when the safety and reputation of law enforcement
is not high on the list when politics enter the picture. Now, with the
resurrection of the infamous "cop-killer bullet" in the political
arena, is a great example. And now is an appropriate time for the working police
officer to stand up in defense of reputation and individual rights!
The politicians and political police chiefs have done more than just
embarrass the law enforcement community with their gun politics. They must bear
at least some of the responsibility for an increased hazard facing every beat
cop. We've all heard of the "cop-killer" bullet -- the 'Teflon-coated
bullet' which has never killed a cop by penetrating a Kevlar vest. But there is
a lot of talk on the street, and even some strong evidence, that the
"cop-killer" bullet issue has gotten some cops killed -- simply
because the press and politicians loved the 'cop-killer bullet' phrase and had
to show what Kevlar vests looked like, explain how they worked, and tell how
they could be defeated!
Police officers across this country have all heard the true accounts by
officers who told how fellow cops --personal friends -- died from head shots or
shots that barely missed their vests. It certainly isn't bad luck when the
triggerman says he deliberately shot to miss the vest because he figured the cop
was wearing one! Why did the criminal know? Who has been promoting the issue in
the press? How many cops have been shot in the face since Handgun Control Inc.
(who dreamed up the phrase), got police administrators excited over
armor-piercing handgun ammo that had been on the market since 1936? They told
the press and the press told the public all about those "NEW"
"COP- KILLER BULLETS" - and all about the personal armor that they
could defeat. Speculation? Maybe, but I believe that every political figure who
stood in front of a camera and advertised our protective equipment to the
criminal world should do a little soul searching! Their own words may be the
true "cop killer"!
And speaking of cameras, how many can relate to the police administrator who
has taken the gun issue to the press, waving about so-called 'ASSAULT WEAPONS'?
Is there a real policeman out there who believes there is a plastic gun? Is
there a policeman who is REALLY fearful of "semi-automatic" firearms?
"Saturday night specials"? Or "military style"? Is
"rapid-fire" really anything more than how fast a finger can pull a
trigger? And as the professional gun- owners in our society, do we really need
police administrators who publicly announce the only reason for these firearms
is to "kill people"?
Is it necessary to promote personal politics by claiming that "the
police are LOSING the battle against crime"? Or that the police "are
outgunned"? Is that the reputation that you prefer? What kind of hero would
Elliott Ness have been if he hid in his office and sniveled about Al Capone's
Police officer must stand up for their own firearms rights, and reputation,
as well. Join us at http://www.2ampd.net
