Wether people realize it or not, our police officers are on duty 24/7. Wether they are in uniform and on the clock or not they are required to carry their wallet badge and thus personal off duty fire arm! They are required to respond to any incident if within their immediate vicinity! In a shopping mall, restraunt, where ever to include schools! I do not know where most of you people live but I live in a mostly safe community and have known police officers for a long time! They pack! Ok! They have responsibilities to keep our communities safe at all times! Schools do not have any authority what so ever anywhere to ban police officers that are armed! As far as retired police officers, that's up to them. They still must get a conceal carry permit and as most retired police officers do, have credentials on their person that identifies them as retired police! But that is a personal decision on their part as to wether they choose to get involved or not! However, active serving police have that obligation! Do Not Argue With Me on this matter! I know!
