NYPD Union To Join Lawsuit Against NFL Gun Ban

The New York Police Department’s Sergeants Benevolent Association (SBA) will join Minnesota police unions’ lawsuit against NFL gun ban.

According to the New York Post, SBA president Edward Mullins said the NFL’s policy barring off-duty officers from carrying guns into games “is a violation of any state laws that allow off-duty cops to carry their guns in public places.”

Tough shit.  Make the cops bow to the same infringements on the RKBA that the rest of us are forced to submit to.

NYC cops, in particular, are probably more dangerous to public safety with their weapons than the public at large, even though they’re all “highly trained.”

About Bill Quick

I am a small-l libertarian. My primary concern is to increase individual liberty as much as possible in the face of statist efforts to restrict it from both the right and the left. If I had to sum up my beliefs as concisely as possible, I would say, "Stay out of my wallet and my bedroom," "your liberty stops at my nose," and "don't tread on me." I will believe that things are taking a turn for the better in America when married gays are able to, and do, maintain large arsenals of automatic weapons, and tax collectors are, and do, not.

  1. Exactly. I haven’t the faintest shred of sympathy for cops who can’t carry, because they’re only interested in carving out an exception for themselves, and the rest of us can go hang.

  2. Last time I checked a cop is a citizen like anybody else. So, if the guberment is gonna’ screw the citizens they should just bend over and like it just like they expect of everyone else.

    Or, they could do the right thing and stand in defense of the rights of all citizens.

    I won’t encourage anyone to hold their breath waiting for the later.
