    Good article. It still baffles me that with the reasoning behind the HR-218 bill, that we are still restricted from carrying in many places that we could have carried while active?

    I fail to see why the Federal Government fears retired state, county and local LEO's carrying in Federal buildings.

    The same reason why they fear war vets that just got back from the sandbox. We are all right wing extremists ;) Homeland Security on guard for 'right-wing extremists'

    Funny stuff there.

    I like that better than the author of the articles suggestion.

    My guess is that it has to do with the federal government's mind-set that only federal officers are intelligent enough and trained adequately to be able to understand when an armed response may be required. If you ain't a "fed" you are an ignorant rube who can't be trusted. I also think it is a matter of control.

    Because they fear everyone else who carries...including those who have permits.

    Verbalization
    Most police training emphasizes verbalization (where appropriate), such as, “Police Don’t Move!” Retired officers may decide not to verbalize before firing, depending on the situation. If they verbalize before firing, retirees should be retrained to shout, “Retired Police Officer….”
    Personally, I find this utterly preposterous.

    I have seen plenty of lack of situational awareness of weapons carriage in my lifetime to be able to see the other side of the coin.
