    Possibly. No need to make them change their mind though, if they weren't going to kill you.

    The account relates that the two exchanged words before the shooting. Could the concealed gun that the officer was carrying have created a false sense of security that emboldened him to talk back? Who knows? However, when one is defenseless, they usually avoid escalating the situation at all costs. It's possible that he may not have been killed if he hadn't had that gun.

    The officer was off-duty but armed. The incident serves to remind us that carrying a sidearm off-duty does not make us impervious to the consequences of deadly force situations.

I already have a difficult time with working unarmed security or with an ambulance or fire/rescue company where I'm tild I can't have a weapon on duty but I deal with it. I'd be damned if they say I can't go strapped while walking the street or going shopping.

    Sorry for the confusion. I was refering to the origional post about a guy who is a Special Police Officer from Boston getting arrested, in Boston, for carrying off duty, in Boston. I wasn't discussing the merits of the law allowing out of state carry. Sorry for not being more clear.

    Very good, that is similar to Texas's CHL.

    Not really. I avoid the bad places but it doesn't hurt to keep something handy until I'm as rich as Rosie O'Donnell and can afford my own private armed bodyguards while yelling about how evil guns are.
    Example, I went shopping at the Winn Dixie yesterday. I had my Bersa .380 pistol in my right front pocket and a spare mag in my rear left pocket. No big deal but it was there IF needed.

    At my PD, part-time officers are not permitted to carry off-duty unless they have prior authorization. THey are sworn police officers but do not undergo field training and have limited duties.

    Keep in mind that the LE carry act specifically provides that specials and private police are NOT covered, and are not authorized to carry under it. It is specifically designed to allow rail road police (the only private agency it covers), but otherwise, you must be a professional sworn law enforcement officer of a municipality, county, state, or federal agency, a professional reserve officer, or a professional part-time officer.

    It specifically addressed the "fake cops" or whatever FOP wants to call them.
