The license a cop needs is the badge. Wearing a gun in the open for the whole world to see would take away some of the power, note not authority, of these people. The gun and the badge means I can do pretty much what I want to because I have a gun and a badge, as long as someone does not have a cell phone that is. What is it about power, power corrupts and absolute power corrupts absolutely. A gun in the open lets everyone know where it is and what you intend to do with it, reaching in your jacket and pulling out a concealed weapon catches everyone off guard, reaching down for the holster to pull the gun and everyone is well aware there is trouble brewing, albeit by a few seconds, but they still know. Not necessarily along the lines of this article, but I am also in favor of out lawing air conditioning in squad cars, so these people will have to roll the windows down occasionally and hear what is going on around them, maybe the crime rate would fall, because they would get off their backsides in the air conditioning.

“Silence in the face of evil is itself evil: God will not hold us guiltless. Not to speak is to speak. Not to act is to act.” ~Dietrich Bonhoeffer (1945 dead by nazi rope)

Heard of the 100 year long ENFORCED opium wars? PEOPLE/Chinese were sold Opium BY FORCE. So when you think of a Chinese opium den REMEMBER for ONE HUNDRED years BRITAIN FOUGHT to keep people ON DRUGS.
No, I will not nor never blame my own country for the ills inflicted, on children, used as guinea pigs and cast off to die in a ditch! Nor the countless who lose sight of their medicine and the PAIN.
