I honestly think that you Should Not have to pay a fee in order to exercise your Constitutional Rights including the 2nd Amend. However, I'd not be opposed to having to "Qualify" every year with my handgun in order to carry IF and only IF I were also granted the same privileges as Law Enforcement Officers were as far as where and when I could carry. LEO's are Civilians same as you and I weather they like to hear that or not and I don't see why they can carry in places that Citizens with HCP's(Handgun Carry Permit, here in Tennessee that allows both concealed and open carry in public) can't carry.
Let's level the playing field and allow evey one who can pass the background check and proficiency course the same ability to carry as LEO's.

I completely agree. BUT, I will say that at least LEOs have a fair amount of training.
In tactics I'd say yes but in shooting, probably not any more then the average guy who shoots once a month gets. How many times have we read about an LEO emptying his handgun at a perp and only scoring a couple hits? Just because someone is an LEO it doesn't automatically make them a "Gun Person". I've know quite a few LEO's that wished they didn't have to carry a sidearm in their job. On the other hand guys like my Nephew who's Nashville PD is a huge "Gun Nut" and very proficient in shooting. :D
