The Senate added to the gun liability bill by a vote of 91-8 the Campbell-Leahy Law Enforcement Officers Safety Act (S. 253). This measure would establish national measures of uniformity and consistency to permit trained and certified on-duty, off-duty or retired law enforcement officers to carry concealed firearms in most situations so that they may respond immediately to crimes across State and other jurisdictional lines, as well as to protect themselves and their families from vindictive criminals.
Yes. Police officers in Illinois are allowed to carry their weapons off duty anywhere within the State.
no...it is not.
In the US - it varies from state to state.
No we are not covered by either law therefore we are not allowed to carry off duty except 1 hour before and after shift. However firearms are not allowed on state property- we never carry a weapon off duty.
It depends on what state you are in. Open Carry is banned in Florida by state law (790.053) except while engaged in (or going to and from) a lawful fishing, hunting, or camping expedition 790.25(3)(h). Open Carry in a state forest or park is no different from anywhere else in the state of Florida. 790.33 insures that and it was clarified by the state attorney general in 2009.
To many variables to answer the question. Depending on the circumstances the answer can be yes, no or maybe.
Federal law provides that a peace officer can carry a firearm in any state, and retired peace officers that meet certain requirements (mainly weapons qualification) may do so as well. NYC is trying not to comply with the Federal alw on this.
Strictly speaking, a full time active duty or retired police officer can carry anywhere in the U.S. under Federal Law HR218, but there are some restrictions. The officer has to abide by the laws of the specific state he or she is in currently.
yes u can, but you must have a current Concealed Pistol License (CPL) from Washington or another state that Washington recognizes. If you do not possess a CPL, you may only carry an unloaded pistol in a vehicle. There is no restriction on where inside the vehicle the pistol and ammunition is, as long as the pistol is unloaded.
Check packing.org for a SUMMARY of state laws on firearms.
An active duty, full-time police officer in any state can carry a concealed weapon in any other state.
Under Florida Law no. A licensed armed security officer is not a peace officer. In the State of Florida you do not have to be sworn to have peace officer status. According to Florida Statutes 843.08 and 843.06 the word "watchman" appears in both statutes. A security officer was once called a watchman. Therefore, a licensed security officer in Florida is a non sworn peace officer.
no he cannot
It depends on the state.
This varies with the state you are asking about.
