It could be worse!

Yep, some don't like being treated like ordinary subjects.

What kind of a moron is this guy. The city entrusts them with a firearm when "on the clock" to protect it's citizens and the officials. Why won't they entrust them to protect a place that will most likely an act of aggression will occur. I just can't understand the liberal mentality.
Gun control isn't about guns...it's about control. It also makes criminals out of otherwise law abiding citzens.

This caused a fairly big uproar down here.
Union members believe the policy is retaliation for a February protest at City Hall during which officers flooded the commission chambers demanding that cuts to their benefits be restored.
I think it's safe to say the union is right about the cause of the ban.
It's kind of dumb telling cops they can't carry a gun. Um who will you call if something bad goes down? The fire department?
Just seems stupid.

Yes, I think this law is stupid. Most anti-gun laws are. However, it's interesting that those same points apply when citizens are banned from carrying into public buildings, as well.
"If things were so bad at City Hall that day, why wasn't there one 911 call made?" asked the outspoken union leader, who is organizing another protest on March 27, the date of the next commission meeting.
According to the edict handed down by Orosa on Tuesday, officers must leave their guns in their cars or with a sergeant-at-arms inside City Hall while a meeting is in session.
Eugene Gibbons, the attorney for the FOP local, said the new policy is unclear as to how officers should safely store their guns in their vehicles and who is responsible should someone break into an officer's car and steal a firearm.

I wonder how something like this would go down in CT or NY right now? I wonder what their unions would say?

Same mentality of our own government towards our soldiers in the military bases. The government entrusts them with weapons of war overseas during combat; yet does not entrusts them back home in the military bases. God Bless the USA Military !!!

Ain't dat some chit.
Palm Beach County did the same thing at the courthouse even when we were in uniform because they had armed SO there.
The security at the medal detectors would let us walk through after we put our weapons in the lock boxes and they never really checked for BUG's.

Any law that forces a person LEO or not to disarm to enter a building is ignorant. Nuff said

That's irrelevant to the issue at hand. There are many ways to battle with a union other than this.

Sort of like making military posts and bases "gun-free zones?"
