That’s why Jersey City will help start to transform the thinking about guns. Police departments are huge buyers of guns and ammunition but have not taken advantage of their power in the marketplace to demand change from gun manufacturers. This has been a missed opportunity that must be — and will be — reversed.

Via A New Approach on Gun Reform — Let’s Get Started. Huff-Po.

As far as I could quickly gather from the net, there are just over one million local, state and federal law enforcement officers in the USA. If they were to buy guns today for every each one of them, that would be one million firearms to cover every cop in the country and that would seem an awesome purchase order…. then again maybe not.

In another Huff-Po article (I guess they can’t do math either) we find out that in 2012 the FBI conducted 16.8 million background checks for gun purchases. That is at least 1,400,000 per month sold in the US to private citizens paying in some cases full retail during the gun frenzy. We are talking that providing a gun to every law enforcement officer in the US would be the equivalent of about a little more of 3 weeks worth of sales in the US. No business in the world will submit themselves to lose over 90% of their income to satisfy a political idiot trying to grandstand himself on this week’s Blood Dancing Marathon and Bloody Shirt waving.

Major Steven Fulop must be a close friend of Eliot Spitzer who actually proposed the same stupid thing last year. How can they run anything with taxpayer’s money if they can do some simple comparative math?

  1. Simple- manufacturers triple the cost of weapons purchases from law enforcement agencies until they ‘cry uncle’.

    1. On the one hand, I kind of like this idea. Allow officers to purchase firearms normally as civilians would at normal prices, but charge the stations extra.

      On the other hand, we’d just get hit with the taxes.

  2. I have so much to say/write in ref: to Your last sentence but do not want to overly cuss so I`ll respectfully just say……No Chit!……. 🙂
