Which Side Law Enforcement is On?

Chris Cox recently did an interview with FOP President Chuck Canterbury, where he noted:

Cox: “You’ve also spent a lot of time reminding members of Congress that FOP members are gun owners who support the Second Amendment. In testimony before the Senate Judiciary Committee, you said ‘I take a back seat to no one in my reverence for the Second Amendment.’”

Canterbury: “That’s correct. I meant it then and I mean it now. Our members and your members share many of the same beliefs about guns and crime. Many department chiefs are political, and they go with the anti-gun line, especially in the big cities. But our members in the rank and file know the reality on the streets.”

Apparently that has our gift-that-keeps-giving opponents twisted up in knots:

Yeah, he does, doesn’t he, Ladd and Josh. It must really be a difficult thing, being on the wrong side of history. For a while I thought I might end up there myself, so I can sympathize. But for now I’m going to enjoy the schadenfreude of watching you come to terms with the lies and distortions you hucksters have peddled over the years coming back to bite you in the ass.

    You (we) were almost on the losing side. It never was the wrong side.

    It’s good to see cops who haven’t been bought off by their government paycheck, who have the courage to stand up in support of the Second Amendment, despite the risk to their careers of openly doing so.

    Didnt the FOP support the renewal of the AWB back in ’04?
