American law enforcement officials continue to urge citizens with gun permits to carry their weapons in public as a counter measure to a possible terror attack. Brevard County, Florida, Sheriff Wayne Ivey added his name to the list.
Guest: Sheriff Paul van Blarcum. Ulster County. New York State. He is urging gun owners in his county to carry their guns in public. A petition on Change.org called on the Sheriff to change his mind, or change his job. In four days the petition managed just about 1300 signatures. Meanwhile Sheriff van Blarcum’s Facebook page in which he calls on citizens to carry their guns had 77,000 views in 18 hours.
Would you feel more safe if you knew guns were being carried in public by licenced gun owners…and carried in public as a deterrent to a mass crime, terrorist or otherwise inspired?
