I have been asked by several members if the Shields will be selling shirts and hats. The answer is “yes”. We are in the process of ordering tee shirts, sweat shirts, baseball hats, and other apparel with the Shields logo. These items will be available for sale at the General Membership meetings. Thanks for the suggestions and for your patience.
I mentioned this in an earlier newsletter, but it is an important topic and worth repeating.
The attack on law enforcement officers in today’s society is of out of control.
The political climate – seemingly without regard to the events of terrorism around the world – appears to be aimed at disarming law abiding citizens. Just who are our representatives representing?
The authority for individuals to possess and carry has come under great scrutiny (and attack) by those seeking immediate and eternal security from all evil doers.
Luck favors the prepared mind. Anyone that chooses to carry should be mindful of the provisions of LEOSA (commonly known as HR 218), the NY SAFE Act, and the NY Penal Law (Articles 265 and 400).
No one loves the warrior until the enemy is at the gate.
