    I don't think that even he could make any sense out of what he was saying.

    The role of Law Enforcement is not to serve and defend? If this guy wants his force to go on the offensive because that is what guns are for, somebody should lock him up.

    So basically cops are carrying firearms to intimidate us? They want to scare us into following their orders when they give them? I don't about you but that sounds insane. At least we all know how this idiot thinks.

    I would like to believe that a cop is there to enforce laws and protect the public, not intimidate them

    At least Barney Fife isn't packing a loaded gun around to intimidate the poor citizens of Mayberry.

    1. I can think of two newspaper delivery women and a baggage handler who might agree with him.

    2. Blaming guns is kinda like blaming getaway cars.

    No. You need to call the police. They will come and intimidate the bad guy for you.

    He seemed so nervous he could barely speak. Hopefully he watches the video and says "what the hell did I just say?"

    From his point of view, anyone with a gun in public is a bad guy because good guys aren't allowed to carry one.

    There's an impressive national spokesman for ya.

    I like my sheriff better. When asked about the FBI showing up at our county line to confiscate guns he had a simple response: "They aren't getting them." Besides his deputies he know who the "real" militia is, if needed.

    Angry California police chief: The idea that a gun is a defensive weapon is a ‘myth’

    Is the world going crazy???

    California police chief: The idea that a gun is a defensive weapon is a ‘myth’


    California Police Chief Ken James insisted earlier this month that the idea of a gun as a “defensive weapon” was a “myth.” Speaking at a news conference about gun control with California lawmakers, James explained that he was concerned with the amount of weapons owned by American citizens.

    “One issue that always boggles my mind is that the idea that a gun is a defensive weapon,” James said. “That is a myth. A gun is not a defensive weapon.”

    James is the Police Chief of Emeryville, California and the Police Chief Association’s Firearms Committee Chairman.

    “A gun is an offensive weapon used to intimidate and show power,” he asserted, explaining to the audience that police officers don’t carry weapons to defend themselves, but to do their job in a “safe and effective manner.”
