The idea that police are highly trained with firearms is a myth! The same is true for the armed forces. I was an infantry squad leader and have been a competive shooter in several disciplines for many years. Neither group are that much different in their skills and training than the active civilian firearms owner and are inferior to the average competive shooter.

Those that can, shoot competitively.
Those that can’t, spray and pray
This is how toy guns got banned or at least had to have the tip painted orange. Illustrated by Mayor Bloomers holding up one of the toy guns he wanted to ban because cops might mistake it for the real thing thing – a translucent-green water pistol shaped like a Buck Rogers ray gun…
I see Lightshooter likes glitter and reminds me of Trumpka, both in appearance and bluster. Four stars is a bit much for a 12,000 person force. I think a US Inf Div runs 15,000 – 17,000 and is run by a two star who probably never shot out street lights.
In my day I outshot all the cops in our pistol league except the pistol instructor/rangemaster. He was an awesomely good shot.

This is the same sh!thead who made pandering speeches to groups of perpetually-aggrieved race-mongers about the importance of addressing the “root causes” (e.g., poverty, unemployment) of crime, not long after being appointed to his present position. Just one more reason that I refuse to visit Chicago for any reason.
