L.A. County Sheriff wants to restrict off-duty guns

Los Angeles County Sheriff Lee Baca is planning to institute one of the nation’s toughest policies on off-duty deputies carrying firearms when drinking alcohol.

Baca says 61 sheriff’s deputies have been arrested this year on alcohol-related charges, 39 of which involved driving under the influence…

Under Baca’s proposed policy deputies would be banned from carrying a firearm when they are under the influence of alcohol, medication or a controlled substance.

The deputies union has indicated it opposes any restrictions on carrying a weapon while off-duty.

I’ll refrain from saying something rude about the deputies union and their politics. Though, I think they recently made it into the 20th Century.
