I have a basic understanding of LEOSA. I was wondering if some of you more informed individuals out there could explain it a bit more to me.
Who is eligible?
What does it allow?
What are the "rules"/laws?
Like I said I have a basic understanding but want more info as I am looking to get into Law Enforcement within the next 2 years or so.
All your questions are answered in the law itself.
Who? An employee of a government agency who has statutory power of arrest and is authorized to carry firearms by the agency.
What? Carrying a concealed firearm, notwithstanding the laws of any state or political subdivision, except for state (not local) restrictions on carry on/in certain government properties; or, in violation of state laws that allow property owners to forbid guns from their private property.
Rules? You can't be intoxicated, and must carry your agency ID.
It's a very simple law, despite people's efforts to complicate it through endless "what if" games.
