Sure sounds like something that might happen in California,
Glad the cop and kid are OK.

The guy was a cop, he had an off duty carry. What was a metal detector supposed to do

And it appears it was a self defense shooting. The guy without the gun was the bad guy. If no metal detectors quite a few more people would have been hurt.

Would like to know the Paul Harvey version. As in the "rest of the story."

Cop was holding his kid (baby?) in his arm. I dunno, not many details. Kalifornia is NOT a stand your ground state, so if he felt threatened, did he have a duty to retreat? Do off duty cops go by same rules as civilians?

Guess we'll have to wait for more details.

Well there you go. Only cops need to be armed for self defense...

Off duty cops and any other citizen for that matter that is threatened should have second amendment rights to protect themselves. Carry on.

While they Should, all do Not!

IMO, a tad bit premature on the metal detecting option!

Going to be a long story on this one and I would not jump to any conclusions yet, the person shot was a Non-Verbal Disabled person. My Cousin that I was best man at his wedding is a LEO, and I have a disabled son that can't talk so I see both sides pretty closely.

Not trying to stir shit or add controversy as we don't know the whole story, but I have a serious question that hopefully an LEO can answer question. Costco (at least the one by my house) has a no fire arms policy with a sign posted by the entrance stating that, would that not apply to an off duty officer that was in the store in a non official capacity? Same question would go for schools, hospitals, professional sporting events and the airport. There are places that were clearly laid out and designated as No Firearms allowed areas that I was made very aware of when getting my CCP.......is an off LEO exempt from this rule anytime, anywhere?

Some places in Florida are "no-carry" by State law. Carry inside a school or courtroom or even a bar, then you are in deep dog-doo.

Stores such as Costco might have a "no carry" policy. But this isn't law. By carrying inside the store, you aren't breaking a law; but if discovered, you may be asked to leave and not return.

State specific issue. In NC it is against the law to carry in a place of business that posts a no firearms sign.

Would be interested in more details. If someone is randomly coming at you swinging that is one thing. This sounds like a verbal argument happened, which likely could've ended by one person just walking away. If that were the case, you can't just argue with someone in public and allow it to escalate to shooting them.

Off duty LEO can carry concealed as indicated by the attached link. Ironically this shooting incident also happened at a COSTCO in a different state.

On November 27, 2017, an off-duty police officer at a Kansas Costco used deadly force to stop what may very well have been the beginning of an active assailant scenario.


well, the link I copied didn't "copy" but it is on google.

Isn't an off duty LEO exempt from this? I would hope so, if an off duty LEO wants to carry anywhere why would we want to stop them?
