81. The 'former cop' she was referring to, btw, was the one mentioned in the comment she was responding

146. That's CCW for you. I don't get it, but whatever.

My father in law (former cop) takes his little toy everywhere, even to church. And we live in a very low crime area.

Apparently the thinking is a gun battle will break out anywhere at any time. I can't imagine living in constant fear like that.

150. As a former cop I get it actually

it is not that a gun battle may break out, just that a former customer might come hunting.
That is why they keep their CCW after they retire.

For the record, at least my SIL and BIL who retired from LAPD are required to re-qualify at the range every so often to keep their CCW. There is something wrong when many civilians are not required to even qualify the first time.

There are people out there who honestly need a CCW... cops and retired cops come to mind. There are some civilians who honestly need them too. But there are FAR LESS than actual CCW out there... that is the problem.


Emphasis mine.

It's very clear what she meant. I know it's embarrassing to make such a huge error and then to dig in after being informed you have done so. But it really is always better to admit to a mistake. People understand mistakes, they don't get someone refusing to acknowledge one once it has been made clear.
