Thanks for the answers, I kind of figured that Iraq and Afghanistan had something to do with the increased use of civilian security guards.
Im just concerned that their training and weapon access is not as good the military cops have. Im just afraid of the level of security, after 9/11 and whatnot we should be increasing it not decreasing it by using more civilian guards who may or may not be armed and if they are armed most would just have pistols right?
