Amazing. What are the chances of a retired cop “being there” compared to a regular citizen? Maybe they can help out with extra after-action report-taking, interviewing of witnesses, but they are not going to “be there when it counts” any more than before they retired:
Police argued that exempting retired and reserve officers from the citywide ban, which was passed earlier this year, would ensure they were equipped to face threats to public safety. In the throes of an attack, “wouldn’t you want some guy to stand up with a gun and be able to defend people?” asked Peter Repovich, director of the Los Angeles Police Protective League.
Feuer, the city attorney, also warned lawmakers against the idea: In a confidential report to the council obtained by The Times earlier this year, he said exempting retired officers would pose “significant legal risk” because it would be hard to show that it was “rationally related to a legitimate state interest.”
If attacked, do you want to be Victor or Victim?
