Red flag gun law would be tough on police



Dear Editor:

I hope that you are against the whole red flag gun thing. If you support it, I want you to realize that when it becomes law about two-thirds of Maine’s police force will be suspended without pay and no longer be able to carry guns. There is a large portion of the Maine police force that has been involved with domestic violence, and allowed to keep their jobs and guns. Police officers are not any different than any other citizen in the state of Maine. They don’t get any special rights or privileges. So that means if this new law goes into effect any police officer — state, county or local — would then be forced to enforce that new law on their own fellow police officers.
