Emeryville, CA police chief Ken James, made some worrysome comments earlier this month. The chief says that guns are offensive, not defensive weapons that are carried to intimidate and show power, implying that is why police officers carry guns.

“One issue that always boggles my mind is that the idea that a gun is a defensive weapon,” he said. “That is a myth. A gun is not a defensive weapon.”

“A gun is an offensive weapon used to intimidate and show power,” James added. “Police officers don’t carry a gun as a defensive weapon to defend themselves or their other officers. They carry a gun to be able to do their job in a safe and effective manner and face any oppositions we may come upon.”

I guess the chief isn’t a reader of our site or he would have seen our 780+ Documented Self Defense Stories.
