Default Tracer question. Yes I know it's illegal, but...

Reading "California Gun Laws" by Michel and I came across a section on who is exempt. It mentions "fire fighters" as an exempt class in addition to LEO. Does anyone know if retired firefighters are in that protected class??

There are both LE and Non LE firefighters. Same applies to CA Fire Marshals and other LE positions. They are still Peace Officers and have the authority to act as an LEO.

When they retire, their badges stay with them. It just changes to say "Retired" on it.

Same applies for Reserve deputies. Their badges say "Reserve", however currently CA does not provide the same privileges to Reserve officers. They need to apply for CCW as a civilian, which is ridiculous considering that the Penal Code defines Reserves as LE and they share the same risks of retaliation from criminals as full LE do.

Only in America are our Firefighters regarded and treated as LE and heroes. In other countries, they're Joe Schmoe from next door and often threated like dirt. UK and Japan treat them highly, but IDK about LE positions.

Street cops and Firefighters hate eachother regardless of the country lol. You should look for footage of the US Police and Fire Championships. Those guys are nuts!

One of my students is in the 50+ age category and wants to compete in Taekwondo after he receives his first degree in October. So he'll compete next year. He's a CA Sup Deputy Fire Marshal and falls under the exempt category.

No it does not. Not only that but possession must be while on duty and acting within the scope and course of employment.
Politicians should only be allowed one term in office, then one term in jail.
