Raising my hand slowly to avoid ire generation, but...watch the video, if you just shot someone in the back shoulder, would you rush to jerk them up by the same armpit/shoulder to get them on their feet all the while stating we gotta get to the hospital?

Not negligent but accidental? There is nothing accidental about pointing your firearm in the wrong direction, not knowing what is down range, and then pulling the trigger. That is pure negligence. If you or I did that, we would be in prison.

I also don't know why this is exactly in this thread... :confused:

Typical cop-hating attitude. You hate the fact that a LEO can be armed somewhere and you can't. Rather than address the problem with the establishment that discriminates against the armed citizen, you stomp your foot and cry (whiny voice)"If I can't have one, neither should he!" So you want the LEO to be unarmed as you. What if the LEO encounters someone he has previously arrested who has decided to ignore the No Gun Rule and exact some revenge on said LEO? How is that LEO supposed to defend himself? With his OC spray? Or his ASP? I agree 100% that citizens should be able to protect themselves, armed or otherwise. I'm a staunch supporter of the 2nd Amendment and I totally support your right to carry everywhere I, as a LEO, can carry. But the argument that if a citizen can't carry there than the LEO shouldn't be able to carry there is just plain dumb. Stop being haters.

In reality there IS no place a LEO can be armed that I can't. Legally. So for me that's a non issue.
The COTUS is the law, of the land regardless unconstitutional decrees made after the fact .

Rest assured, if I'm present I'm armed.

Cop can be armed so can I. Period

The laws in some states say otherwise. For example, in hospitals here in Colorado, if it's posted, I can't be armed, but a law enforcement officer in the official performance of his or her duties can be armed.

I agree some states have pieces of paper that illegally infringement the RTKABA.

That said. The COTUS is the Supreme law of the land. Which is why I said legally armed.

The rest of my post stands.

Cops are not all that and a bag of chips where guns are concerned. The offending restaurant had the right policy, no guns for anyone, and no "accidents" will manifest. When a cop has little to fear from the consequences of abysmal firearm handling why be concerned with the safe handling of their tax payer issued firearm. When cops know that their coworkers will do nothing about their misdeed why worry about the consequences of abysmal firearm handling.

A mere citizen would have been strung up at the nearest tree on the spot. I'll wager that the wounded cop will not sue the shooter.
