“Minnesota residents would have greater freedom to defend their homes with deadly force under a bill headed to the state Senate floor over the objections of police, who said it could endanger officers.”
Here’s the fun part:
(Gov. Mark) Dayton said when lawmakers were debating the bill last year, he was “concerned because law enforcement in Minnesota was mostly opposed to it, felt that it gave citizens more freedoms and rights than they had.”
And we all we that The Only Ones who should have more freedoms and rights are law enforcement and other arms of the state. Oh, and it’s been my experience (having been through a number of these in AZ) that “law enforcement” means LEO top brass and/or spokesmen, not rank and file officers who do the actual heavy lifting.
