As always Ron is right. No where in the Constitution does it authorize a monopoly on government beuracrats to go armed where civilians cannot. Imagine if this was the other way around. I assume that is where the quote from Jefferson was headed:
“When governments fear the people, there is liberty. When the people fear the government, there is tyranny.”
Arm the staff, do not give the TSA another assignment around our kids, as most are have been convicted of a crime, and some are registered sex offenders.
I think this is simply NRA trying to get the media talking about something other than just guns. I’d much rather have the media debating violence in Hollywood and video games that focusing exclusively on gun control.
