As police officers we have the right to carry a concealed handgun off duty.  We feel it is the right of every law abiding American to carry a concealed handgun if they so desire. It is a right that is guaranteed to each and every one of us and we will continue to train as many people as we can in the use of firearms and concealed carry.
