I’ll train our officers that there is a concealed carry law, but when somebody turns with a firearm in their hand the officer does not have an obligation to wait to get shot to return fire and we’re going to have tragedies as a result of that. I’m telling you right up front.His justification? Well CCW holders don't have as much training as police and the CPD shoot innocents all the time.
Police officers make mistakes all the time,” McCarthy said. “We spend six months in the police academy, six months of field training and ongoing training on a regular basis and the fact is once in a while we’re going to shoot someone with a cellphone; we’re going to shoot somebody with a flashlight and none of that is okay.Isn't that just special? Goes right along w/ the NGAC and the NYPD, doesn't it? Basically he's saying he's going to train his officers to yell 'They're coming right for us' before they shoot anyone they think is carrying.
