Federal Officers Can Carry Firearms During Shutdown

Federal law enforcement officers won’t have to put away their guns in the event of another government shutdown, thanks to the passing of a new law this week.

Signed into law yesterday, the Federal Law Enforcement Self-Defense and Protection Act (H.R. 2137) makes it legal for federal law enforcement officers to carry their government-issued firearms during a government shutdown.

The Federal Law Enforcement Officers Association (FLEOA) initiated this legislation after several agencies were uncertain about the carry authorities for federal law enforcement officers during the last government shutdown in 2013.

“This issue has never been about shutdowns or firearms, but about the absolute necessity of ensuring the safety of our members and their families,” FLEOA National President Nathan Catura said.
