“The Ninth Circuit Court of Appeals on Tuesday ruled that the Seattle Police Department’s updated use of force policy—an initiative borne out of the city’s court-ordered police reform process—does not violate police officers’ Second Amendment rights.”

“‘On behalf of the City, I welcome this confirmation that constitutional policing and officer safety go hand-in-hand,” said City Attorney Pete Holmes, whose office defended the city’s policy in court.”
