Ara Rubyan - Was there ever a cop who thought people having more...: "Ara Rubyan hi, I am a police officer in the state of Oklahoma. I support, and am sworn to uphold, the entire United states constitution and it's bill of rights. I have seen first hand situations that left me thinking "if only this person had a defensive firearm" Speaking for myself, I completely support legal gun ownership. I oppose waiting periods, invasive or delayed background checks, and magazine limitations.
Waiting periods and overly invasive background checks convolute the process, making first time buyers and home defense buyers weary of the process thereby discouraging ownership. By discouraging ownership, you discourage the safety of the civilian population.
As stated, I live in Oklahoma. An area of our great country that has a high potential for natural disasters (tornado) Magazine limitations limit people in disaster areas from defending themselves in time of need (see l.a. riots or Katrina) I don't want citizens over run by looters or worse. Reloading is troublesome and problematic in defense situations. I don't like doing it myself My employment doesn't make me special, every citizen should have the right.
I support open and concealed carry. I do them both to defend myself and others. My employment doesn't make me special, every citizen should have the right.
Finally, I support the entire second amendment because I am sworn to. To oppose or violate it would be to violate my oath. To violate my oath would be to violate my integrity. To violate my integrity would be to violate the public trust of which my badge represents."
