The unbelievable mass shooting and massacre in Las Vegas during a country music concert has made me think how we as a nation can quickly, safely, effectively and efficiently turn the tide that we are facing in this volatile world that we live in today. Is it time for all active off-duty and retired law enforcement officers to be able to carry their concealed weapons to any event or location anywhere in the United States?

As I rehash the events that unfolded during the Route 91 Harvest Festival concert on the Las Vegas strip I think of the relative, friends, and former co-workers that I knew who were in attendance, one of whom was shot in the shoulder and is expected to survive. I think of the numerous innocent people killed and injured and those affected by this senseless act and the other violent attacks we have faced over the years. One thought constantly came to me as I pondered how do you stop or neutralize a crazed person like this lone shooter who was on no one’s radar.

I believe that a push of public and political pressure needs to be made calling for the President of the United States to issue an Executive order, or to have Congress pass emergency legislation, to allow all active off-duty law enforcement officers and retired law enforcement officers who are in good standing and already authorized to carry concealed weapons in their respective states to be authorized to possess and carry concealed weapons in all states and at all public venues.

All Law Enforcement should be carrying off duty. Most officers are required to do so.
Why are some not ?
