Question for the LEO's on board

Post by gwhunter » Sun Aug 02, 2009 12:47 pm

Ok, you guys deal with all the s';t on the streets and just about every possible thing that could possibly happen so I was wondering about your professional (put on your LEO hats) opinion on the use (carrying) of these CCW Badges.

Would they make a difference if you were called to a scene of a shooting or a call about someone with a weapon or a call about someone holding a person at gunpoint.

I mean if you rolled up on a scene and a person was holding this badge up would it matter or not.

I know to be safe a person should just put the weapon down and step away with hands raised but what if someone was holding a perp at gunpoint. Hell, you know what I mean.

Anyway, before I go spending money for something thats absolutely useless I wanted to get the professionals opnion.

Thanks
GW

When I teach CCW classes I instruct my students that the use of a weapon must be reactive not proactive.
The badge might be construed as being proactive just like having a sign “trespassers will be shot”. If you shoot a trespasser and have the sign you might have a lot of explaining to do.

don't waste your money on it, unless you want it to put on your desk at home!
