    I'm not inclined to disarm for a concert, game, (entertainment) and I ain't going on a plane or cruise.

    Grin. Kinda like the criminal running away with lighted sneakers. Now the criminal drives away with a blue light.

    A very bad idea IMO for a variety of reasons! One is most all law enforcement officers have to have many hours of training in high speed driving. In most states this falls under "high liability training" just like defensive shooting. I doubt that most politicians would trouble themselves to go through that training so that they don't endanger the public on our roadways. They need to stick to focusing on legislative matters that serve the people and leave the high speed driving to NASCAR drivers and trained professionals who have a legitimate need vs their impatience to hurry up and get to $250 plate luncheons. Just my .02 worth!

    Any idea about precisely what that training consists of? I ask only because I'm already aware of what their firearms training consists of...

    In Florida there was a whole section of the BLE academy devoted to EVOC (emergency vehicle operations). We also had to have a refresher on the EVOC course every 2 years. I imagine that most states have similar requirements. There are quite a few that don't pass the initial course.

    Guys, I can't remember which POTUS Administration, but I believe it was Carter.

    Back then, 55 mph was the speed limit everywhere. Some reporter got pretty smart and timed the motorcade from point A to the airport. Did some calculations and determined the average speed was like 78 mph or something. I was really young back then but that was the first real example of hypocrisy i can remember.

    Can I get a couple thousand of those to pass out in parking lots and the street? Very fitting, not just for politicians.

    Let's give them badges and guns while we're at it. After all, they are special...

    If competency of the electorate was judged by those elected to public office, histories would judge the electorate poorly!
