With all the commotion going on with the tragic shooting in Tucson, AZ, should public officials carry a firearm?
Are they safe? Should every citizen be allowed to carry a firearm?
I think we should for our safety and public officials should always carry a firearm for their safety. Unfortunately, we live in a world where it’s not even safe to stand in front of your local super market and listen to a public figure speak. At the same time, every person who wants to legally possess a firearm should be check out by a shrink and get a report back before they are allowed to carry guns. Everyone should go through a background check from here on out who want to buy a firearm.
From our local council members up to our President, these folks who serve us in America should always carry a firearm to protect themselves and those around them. I believe in the 2nd Amendment, but that shouldn’t mean that the town whack nut should be able to easily purchase and get the okay that they are fine and will safely and responsibly use their firearm. It won’t happen. Look at all the stuff dug up on this murderous fool who shot at people like he was playing Duck Hunt in an arcade game.
My heart goes out to all the victims who were murdered and those who were wounded. May God keep an extra eye on Tucson, Arizona tonight after the youngest victim, Christina Taylor Green was laid to rest today and give comfort to those affected by this heinous act.
As of this writing, Rep. Gabrielle ‘Gabby’ Giffords was able to reach out to her husband, was rubbing his wedding ring, she was able to dangle her legs off her bed and move them and she recognizes family and friends.
She was able to give a thumbs-up to her fellow constituants when one said, “When you get better, we will go out for pizza and beer”.
