The proper reply to this is to boycott all things Seahawks and all things Centurylink until management rescinds its decision. A cop with a gun is not a ‘safety issue’.

Quite correct.

I’m not really big on carving out a bunch of enhanced rights for off duty cops. It’s private property where alcohol is served and if the owners don’t feel that they want off duty armed police on the premises then I’ll back their right to enforce that policy.

I also object to California police being exempt from having to purchase from the list of “Certified Not Unsafe” handguns. If the rest of us have to buy from that list then police should be limited to it as well, at least for non duty guns.

Dumb over reaction . Cops should be able to carry , wherever , whenever . This is the type of thing that gives gun control a bad name .

Cops are human, and cops commit crimes at about the same rate as the rest of the population. The entire problem of cops always being armed is tricky and almost punishing for the cop— strictly, it should mean that they never get drunk.
