    Well, I think that part of the problem is misunderstanding things....I've spoken to friends that are local LE. They think that when they retire, they're still cops, ex yes, but still entitled to certain things.

    Now, I am of the opinion that if you are carrying for your whole 'working' life, you should be allowed to after you retire. in NY, you need a license.

    NYC police cannot have a Pistol License until after they retire. They must buy every gun under their shield, They still, and please any NYPD out there correct if wrong, they still go through a NICS check. When they retire, they must apply for a permit.

    Silly?

    Couple points of intrest #1.NYPD is considered it own army,I beleive they rank in the top 5 in the world with appx 37,000 plus members. So when the SHTF there is back-up upon back-up arriving. I don't agree with the above ratio of people to police. NYC has millions of people in a small area.#2 Mayor G did not care about peoples so called rights, he instructed the Police to crack down on quality of life violations. After arresting the little guy and sweating info out of them and then they trading up to bigger fish, and bigger. Bend the zoning laws to close the Porn/Peep shows in Times Square. He reasoned correctly that if you got rid of the hoes,pimps,and drug dealers, the major companies like Disney/ M&M/Warner Bros would move in, and then be able to collect tax that they never able before. Times Square is now one of the cleanest/busiest/most expensive real estate around. #3 a NYPD officer can buy as many firearms as they wish with their ID cards. The city will only back-up an officer involed shotting with their duty firearm while on duty or off-duty firemarm off duty. They must apply for a Pistol permit after retiring which is really a easy process for them. Near impossible for everybody else. Don't know how many people would purchase a firearm in we became a Shall-Issue state but I would bet a lot of people would apply for the license. maybe never carry but had it. Everybody who lives in NYC have a drivers lic, but most do not drive in the city.
