I was there and the only thing I saw was a bunch of LEOs and FFs from all across the state comport themselves with professionalism, respect for property, and going out of their way to help their fellow citizens.

I have to wonder if you were even there, or are you just jawboning about what you saw on TV from the comfort of your easy chair?

I was active duty military assigned in SoCal when the 92 riots happened. There were lots of areas being vandalized and looted for several hours that did not get any law enforcement response. Many people were left to fend for them selves. There just wasn't enough LEOs to cover the affected areas. Some areas were real danger if one was Asian. There was an on scene news reporter wondering where law enforcement was. My relatives said they called 911 so many times to report gun fire where they live but never got a hold of live 911 operator. I'm not bashing our LEOs for when large proportion of lawlessness happens there is not enough police to go around. It takes time for the National Guard to mobilize. The best thing you can do as an armed law abiding citizen is hold your grounds and team up with other law abiding armed citizens.

I agree LEOs shouldn't be higher class citizens with privileges of buying off roster handguns for personal use. The law says no more than 5 transactions of handgun sales per year for everyone. The law does not say you can't sell for profit. The law doesn't say you can't sell a gun that wasn't fired. If an LEO contacts an OP of WTB off roster handgun and makes a deal with him of a sale of such off roster handgun 30+ days later, that officer just broke the law. The handgun roster created this problem! It's time to get rid of the roster!

I think most cops would agree that the rosters is stupid and is nothing more than a political stunt for liberals, who know nothing about guns, to look tough on gun control. At the same time I certainly take advantage of my exemption and buy off roster just like I buy "hi cap" mags. I buy them for me though.

I don't think the ATF will be coming after us for trading a half dozen guns, even for profit. Not saying it's right, and I certainly don't agree with it, but the ATF is more looking for the bigger fish to fry. At least that's the impression I got when I read the letter they put out.

Holy heck... Did you just watch the LA Riots 25 years later documentaries and get all emotional?

So much bias in those.

ATF is mostly looking at the officers who buy large numbers of off roster guns and then resells them..almost immediately..
DROS will show the dates..

Some departments won't issue the waiver letters and some hand them out like candy..

ATF is looking for the unlicensed gun dealer/police/sheriff that is making a tidy sum in the reselling of off roster guns..

The sales still go through DROS so the reports you hear of guns showing up at crime scenes is because of guns being brought in and someone who passed the DROS giving them away for cash..

That shouldn't be faulted on the seller via CA DOJ directed transfer via FFL to individuals that checked out.

Easy answer for this supposed "problem" is for LEO's to not sell off roster handguns in Cali. I have no problem with that, as I do not want to try to usurp Cali law and flood the market with so-called "unsafe" handguns, outside of LEO hands. FYI, I've never sold a firearm for profit, or otherwise. LEO's should not be profiting from these exempted purchases, neither should those who obtained them via surreptitious methods (SSE) and/or relative "gifting". Follow the law folks, no matter how much you disagree with it.

This answer clearly doesn't solve the problem that we are all cry babies and cowards though. Apparently that's acceptable rhetoric in the LEO forum now.
