    There was an indoor gun range in Raleigh N.C. some years ago that closed up over a cop feeling he was above the rules.

    Range rule, all guns have to be in a case when brought into the range. Cop came in with his on his belt. Owner told him
    to go back out and put it in a case. Cop refused. Cop didn't just refuse he started arguing with the owner about why HE
    should be exempt from the rule. Guy closed his range at that moment and never reopened. All it would take was ONE person
    not following the rules and someone getting hurt and the owner, not the cop, would be held to blame.

    Was pretty sad. Guy had a NICE range. Clean. Well kept. Sold guns and accessories at reasonable prices.

    All the Best,
    D. White

    If by company policy you mean that individual store, IDK. What I do know is the last time I was there my local Kay Jewelers does not have a "Victims disarm" sign, which in Ohio means they don't prohibit legal carry by customers even by people who are not cops. None of the other competing jewerly stores in their area prohibit legal CC either as far as I'm aware. (I haven't been to all of them though) The local store might prohibit their own employees from carrying (IDK) If they do, all that means is they are like 99% of all the other stores.

    well actually a Certified law enforcement officer DOES have a certian right over joe average citizen, as does a Fire officer at or above a certain rank, and a Fire marshall, arson iverstigator and many others.
    this is here, not sure about your area?
    most I believe are required to be armed while on duty, only a few exceptions are made to this as I understand it, like in areas where prisoners are incarcerated, court rooms etc.
    Anyone wanting these additional rights well Atlanta PD is accepting applications right now, a few moths of training and edumacation and you could probally be there.

    My police dept required us to be armed while off-duty, too. I seem to remember that the rule only applied to while you were in the county where we were located. We were all deputized, too, even though we were not on the sheriff's dept. Of course, we were permitted to carry throughout the entire state and also adjoining states, too, as were officers from those states being allowed to carry in Michigan. This was back in the mid-late 1970's but I doubt things have changed about that.

    I even had my CCW for about 10 yrs after leaving the department and this was back years before Michigan became a 'Shall Issue' state and obtaining a CCW permit was extremely hard to do. All I had to put on the form for my reason for requesting the CCW was 'Former Michigan police officer' and it was approved in about 1 day. Of course the people doing the processing knew nearly all of the officers and former officers of all the local departments, so that helped.

    I have pistols, revolvers and rifles.......but none have the term "firearm" engraved on them anywhere. ...guess I don't own any firearms, whatever that might be.

    My ccw is in a case. It's called a holster. It's no more a danger than at anytime as long as i don't take it out of the holster just as not taking it out of the case. Anybody that has a problem with that i have a problem with you. Your brain is wired wrong.
