On July 22, 2004, President
George W. Bush signed House Resolution 218 (HR 218), the "Law Enforcement
Officers' Safety Act," into law. This act, which officially became

retired law enforcement officers from local and State prohibition on the
carrying of concealed firearms.
On September 29, 2010, The U.S. House of Representatives, passed S. 1132. This bill amends the current Public Law 108-277 with positive changes --especially provisions for retired officers. The bill also covers ammunition which was not covered in the original LEOSA bill. It also makes it easier for retiree to do the yearly qualifications. On October 12, 2010, President Barack H. Obama signed S. 1132, the “Law Enforcement Officers’ Safety Act,” into law. The Act, now Public Law 111-272, went into effect immediately.
