Pro Second Amendment Cop - True Story

I found a web page by, for, and of, pro second amendment cops. It is called, cleverly enough, 2nd Amendment PD. ( I signed up as a member, and contributed a short article for their consideration. It was actually a letter I had written in June of 1999, to another officer elsewhere in the country to explain my strong pro 2nd Amendment views. I of course edited out names and other such things that would not be in context, and sent it via e-mail.

Today at work, I get an e-mail from the chief. It seems he had received an e-mail from a citizen in another part of Oregon, about my article. She said that her husband had been murdered a few years ago, by a handgun. (At about this time I'm beginning to see my retirement disappear. Oh, S**T. ) But I read on. She was praising me and what I had to say, telling El jeffe that I am a treasured asset to the Dept. Whew! I jogged (not walked) to the chief's office, ready with my "Golly gee whiz boss, I didn't think that would happen" speech, but he cut me off. He said atta boy, and he supports everything I said.

Double whew!

Anyway, if you care to read what I submitted, go to: and scroll down to you see my name. The web master must have put in our city logos and the disclaimer, because I did not, but on hindsight, the disclaimer is a good idea. I'm way to close to retirement to be messing around.

By-the-way, I did e-mail the lady and thanked her for her support.

Pretty cool. Made my day.
