California Cop: A Gun is Not a Defensive Weapon
Feb 16, 2013
Earlier this month, California police boss Ken James said as part of the concerted effort to wreck the Second Amendment that guns are not used for self-defense.
“One issue that always boggles my mind is that the idea that a gun is a defensive weapon,” James said. “That is a myth. A gun is not a defensive weapon.”
He then went on to describe how police use guns. “A gun is an offensive weapon used to intimidate and show power. Police officers don’t carry a gun as a defensive weapon to defend themselves or their other officers. They carry a gun to be able to do their job in a safe and effective manner and face any oppositions we may come upon.”
