Its easy to idolize people because of their profession, to think of them as somehow noble and ethically above reproach. The reality is that they're just people, subject to all humam weakness, and the very normal desire to take care of oneself and ones own.

We have members here who are "stuck" in 2A restrictive States- because they're unwilling to forfeit a comfortable job or lifestyle. Why should we expect government employees to be any different- willing to sacrifice their livelihoods and families for YOUR guns...?

And before the lectures about personal sacrifice for duty even starts- I understand it far better than most here, I've lived it for 30 years.
