Im trying to explain to my buddy that LEO's are exempt from the handgun roster. Is there any official PC anyone can cite to prove it?

This is the text of the BOF post but I'm still trying to find the link:

Quote:
Policy Change Regarding State Exemptions for Authorized Peace Officers

Effective immediately, peace officers who have legislative authority to carry and use firearms may, without a
letter signed by the head of their agency or the agency head's designee, purchase non-rostered handguns
and/or large capacity magazines. The peace officer must present a valid peace officer identification card and
the dealer must retain a copy of the identification card on file. (PC 12132 & 12133). A letter is still required
from the head of the agency to exempt the peace officer from the ten day waiting period. (PC 12078).
Here's the link

I sure wish we retained that ability when we retired.

I realize non leos don't believe leos should have that ability at all since they don't, but it is codified and I was just making a joke (tho I really, really wish I could do so.)

I wish there wasn't a need for an exemption

Oh, I agree sorensen, I agree. Hopefully the Calguns lawsuit will eventually rectify that situation.
