Isn't law enforcement overwhelmingly pro 2A?

I always found it odd that cops generally favor the availability of guns and ammunition in the hands of the public.

This seems illogical to me. Unless the underlying message is "we can't protect you."

When the general public is armed, it puts everybody including cops at greater risk of harm and it forces cops to err on the side of using lethal force themselves.

Thus I must conclude that gun love is absurd and irrational and undeserving of respect as public policy.

Would you vote in an election system without a secret ballot?

I guess it's self-evident that the purpose of a secret ballot is to prevent retribution or intimidation by government authorities against those who vote the wrong way.

Would you stop voting if the ballot you cast was indelibly linked with your personal identity and registration?

Let's assume that your detailed voting record can be inspected by anyone, but that the identity of everyone inquiring about your ballot is also recorded.

I put this forward as the ultimate means of vote authenticity and legitimacy.

But would it also amount to the ultimate means of voter suppression?
