University police chief says gun owners are a threat to themselves and others

I’m guessing this gun owner, this gun owner, this gun owner, this gun owner, this gun owner, this gun owner, this gun owner, this gun owner, this gun owner, this gun owner, this gun owner, and this gun owner would disagree with the good police chief.

Campus Reform has a report about The University of Central Florida (UCF) police chief who wrote an op-ed in the school’s independent publication. His goal was to “debunk the myth that a good guy with a gun always can and will save the day.”
Chief Richard Beary built his argument on “decades of training and law enforcement experience,” saying “an untrained person with a legally owned gun is more of a threat to themselves and others than they are a helper of the law.”

Beary states that law enforcement officers may be the only citizens with the proper experience to deal with an active shooter situation. “A concealed weapons permit does not make you a hero. A concealed weapons permit does not teach you how to deal with an active shooter. A concealed weapons permit does not make you a trained law enforcement officer,” he added.
Excerpts from his op-ed:

“However, conversations in Tallahassee about allowing the open carry of weapons on college and university campuses cause me great distress. Campus-carry would dramatically change the job of a UCF Police officer, making it more challenging for us to keep UCF safe. My opinion is not based on politics, but rather life experience.
I have spent nearly 40 years in law enforcement and have been a firearms instructor for 29 years. I became police chief at UCF in 2007.
I applaud those who have the desire to protect themselves and the people around them.
However, I fall back on decades of training and law enforcement experience when I say that open carry of weapons would not make them or their peers any safer. On the contrary, it would create hostility and chaos.
You want to be a hero? Do the right thing. Take care of yourself. Look out for others. Call for help if you or someone you know is in distress. Those are the keys to keeping UCF a safe place to live and learn, not by putting guns in the hands of undertrained people in high-stress settings.”

I like how he moves around from conceal carry to open carry. Two different issues, IMO. Read the rest of the article here.
The man is entitled to his opinion. And so am I. In certain situations, I’m not going to be able to call for help in my home if I am in distress. That’s why I practice my Second Amendment right.

  1. He might be right if the cops were always available when some freak flies off the handle and into the deep end. But anyone with a brain knows that when threats appear and seconds count the police are only minutes away.
    I wonder how much pressure the university placed upon him to write his little piece.

     
  2. The expression on this fool’s face suggests to me he’s mentally challenged. oh, f*ck it! let me just spell it out: he’s a *half-a-tard*. And his comments only confirm my thesis. Is it wise to “hire the handicapped” for such an important position?? I suppose since we’re talking about Florida the answer is clear. ha

    So says the all knowing and caring elitist; “a concealed weapon permit does not make you a hero. A concealed weapon permit does not teach you how to deal with an active shooter. A concealed weapon permit does not make you a trained law enforcement officer.”
    Well I know that a “concealed weapon permit” is a violation of our Constitution. A ‘concealed weapon permit” is an intentional infringement on the right assured to U.S. citizens by our Constitution.
    I know that all the rights of the true U.S. citizens have suffered as government has grown, and law enforcement has expanded, becoming more and more militarized and threatening to the true U.S. citizens.
    Perhaps the peoples skill and familiarity with firearms has suffered, but that has been the purposeful result of government infringements and the stigmatization of the very mention of “gun”. But I still trust the skill and judgment of family and friends with firearms much more than strangers in a uniform whose only loyalty is to a pay check or political agenda, and only proven skill I have seen of late to be the staging of fake bombings and shootings.

     
  4. This blog has helped to make this guy an ‘expert’.
    Otherwise who would read his article in the school paper?
    I hope this officer enforces the law and protects the rights of legal gun owners and the relevant Constitutional Laws he is paid to enforce as much as he writes articles based on liberal talking points and his own opinion.
    That’s the problem, liberals repeat their opinions into the echo chamber and replace the law with their version of reality.
    You know, the two ‘realities’ BHO speaks about.
    The Democrats are attacking the Second Amendment, but even FOX argues that this assertion cannot be backed up by facts.
    But it certainly can.

     
    • I’ll bet that if this guy gets a call on an active shooter,he’ll go 10-7. (leaving to eat lunch or dinner). We had a couple of Cops where I live that were that way-ALWAYS found an excuse to miss those “dangerous situations”. But-at least they were around to collect their Retirement benefits.

       
  5. this guy sounds like a mouthpiece for a police state and gun control

     
  6. This JERK is the GLOVE, and the University is the HAND. It’s called a paycheck and a pension!
    As Bugs Bunny would say, “What a maroon!”

     
  7. I’m guessing this gun owner, this gun owner, this gun owner, this gun owner, this gun owner, this gun owner, this gun owner, this gun owner, this gun owner, this gun owner, this gun owner, and this gun owner would disagree with the good police chief.
    Priceless, DCG! 😀

     
  8. He thinks maybe now he’s written this crap they’ll let him a have a bullet to carry around for his gun, (Like Barney Fife for you youngins)

     
  9. Obviously I’m a Barney when it comes to posting images!

  10. Well, most school murders occur in “Gun Free Zones”, just like he wants. He is obviously a scared little chicken of the powers that be and would rather have innocent children killed than have people that have a gun on them to shoot the bastard that is going to kill innocent kids! I say arm the teachers, arm the students, arm the custodians and principles…then lets see how many of these freaks try and shoot up a school!

     
  11. Just a thought wandering by… Firearms were allowed in Newtown, CT, 2012. How many deaths by firearms took place in that town that year? That’s right, none! Now, if one were to attempt to take guns away from the public, one would have to create a scenario with actors, but people off with large sums of money, give instructions to a media awaiting commands and scripts for the evening… Could that ever happen here? Maybe FOTM has free reading material available to anyone concerned with truth.

     
  12. Starting with 9/11 there have been 12 mass premeditated murder events in the US and France. Coinciding with every one was a “drill”. The odds of winning the Powerball is 1 in 297 million with each ticket. Powerball is 5 numbers from 69 and 1 number from 26. There were millions of potential locations for these “drills”. Let’s say 3 years worth of potential”dates” and we’ll call a “hit” to be plus or minus 2 days of the terrorist event. For example purposes, let’s use 25 different types of “events” (ie: active shooter, bombing, natural disaster, etc). The odds of the date, the type and the location for any single drill to land on the date, type and location for ONE of these premeditated terrorist events by chance by far exceeds the statistical probability of winning the Powerball. In fact, the statistical probability of it occurring by chance is virtually zero. Now try to calculate the statistical probability of that happening 12 times in a row without a miss. The drills and events did not occur together by chance. Logic following: EITHER the criminal knew the drill schedule and planned the crime to occur when the most responders would be in the area OR the drill organizers set up the crimes. The parties involved in setting up the drills are DHS and FEMA. Next logic would be; know the drill schedule. This police chief is a tool.
