Most law enforcement is conducted by some type of law enforcement agency, with the most typical agency fulfilling this role being the police.Various specialized segments of society may have their own internal law enforcement arrangements.
2) Re: 2012 House Bill 5584 (Revise law enforcement pistol purchase procedures ) by famousfather on May 10, 2012 Enlighten me. Again, why is this necessary? The LEO's don't feel special enough now that they have to get a purchase permit like us commoners? It's more convenient for them to obtain a permit as they are already at the station and can apply when at work unlike we who must take time off from our jobs. Just another wedge between us and them...like the Congress passing laws for us citizens but exempting themselves from the very same rules.
3) Re: 2012 House Bill 5584 (Revise law enforcement pistol purchase procedures ) by Cambeul41 on May 9, 2012 My understanding is that when Dave Grossman wrote his famous essay about sheepdogs (http://www.killology.com/sheep_dog.htm) he was not talking about ordinary citizens who were armed, although he is not specific on the subject, but about law enforcement professionals. Perhaps I am mistaken; I hope that I am. Ido, though, still object to law officers being treated as special when there is no need to do so. They have the training; all they need to do is submit a bit of paper work. Their employers can even reimburse them for expenses. I ask again, "What is the point?"
