UPDATE ON F.O.P. TOP LEGISLATIVE PRIORITIES:

Frequently Asked Questions (FAQs) about H.R. 218:


Who is eligible to carry concealed firearms under this legislation?
Qualified law enforcement officers employed by or retired from a local, State or Federal law enforcement agency.


A “qualified active law enforcement officer” is defined as an employee of a government agency who:
  * is authorized by law to engage in or supervise the prevention, detection, investigation, prosecution or the incarceration of any person for any violation of law;
  * has statutory powers of arrest;
  * is authorized by the agency to carry a firearm;
  * is not the subject of any disciplinary action by the agency;
  * meets the standards, if any, established by the agency which require the employee to regularly qualify in the use of a firearm;
  * is not under the influence of alcohol or another intoxicating or hallucinatory drug or substance, and
  * is not prohibited by Federal law from possessing a firearm.
Qualified active law enforcement officers must carry the photographic identification issued by the agency for which they are employed.


If you are an active duty law enforcement officer with any local, State or Federal governmental agency and you meet all of the requirements above, you may carry a concealed firearm under the provisions set out in the bill.


A “qualified retired law enforcement officer” is defined as an individual who:
  * has retired in good standing from service with a government agency as a law enforcement officer for an aggregate of fifteen (15) years or more for reasons other than mental instability, OR
  * retired from such an agency due to a service-connected disability after completing any applicable probationary period of such service;
  * was authorized by law to engage in or supervise the prevention, detection, investigation, prosecution or the incarceration of any person for any violation of law;
  * had statutory powers of arrest;
  * has a nonforfeitable right to benefits under the retirement plan of the agency for which he was employed;
  * meets, at his own expense, the same standards for qualification with a firearm as an active officer within the State in which he resides;
  * is not under the influence of alcohol or another intoxicating or hallucinatory drug or substance; and
  * is not prohibited by Federal law from possessing a firearm


Qualified retired law enforcement officers must carry the photographic identification issued by the agency for which they were employed and documentation which shows that they have met the qualification standards in their State of residence for the firearm they are carrying.


The definition of “firearm” specifically excludes machine guns, silencers, explosives or other destructive devices as these terms are defined in Federal law.
