This is a question that I have always had: why is that police officers have more gun rights than a typical citizen even when not on duty. Most states require CCW permit holders to go through a gun safety/training course, and some fo them are quite intensive. My opinion on the matter is this: if a police officer (a normal citizen with a different job) is able to carry in a church and government buildings (illegal for a CCW permit holder in GA) why am I not allowed to? Despite the fact that I have my CCW permit? Maybe someone can shed a light on this for me.
