More qualified than you
Because only police and law enforcement are responsible enough to have firearms. While I know the statistics will show that law enforcement as a percentage have a low rate of crime, it is the exact same situation with the community of legal gun owners that choose to carry concealed. The difference is that people aren't going into hysterics about law enforcement because they are "better" somehow. Don't even try that "they're better trained" line with me lest you be laughed out of here. I am going to drop an edit in here to say this isn't a slight on the law enforcement community. I have quite a few friends that fall into that category. This is more of a swipe and the anti-crowd's stance that civilians shouldn't own firearms. Ultimately, at the end of the day we're all people. There is no distinguishable difference between the flaws of the people that put on a uniform and those that do not.
