Thank-god they're guns provided them so much protection
quick, lets arm teachers while we're at it.
That being said, I am not ready to call for all service members being armed on US soil. There are good solid reasons for keeping the weapons locked up unless needed, and I don't see a level of danger in this country to change my mind about that. Things are still relatively safe here. If a concerted attack was launched by some enemy (foreign or domestic) then I can see handing out the guns. But that hasn't happened yet.
i had always assumed perhaps wrongly that it was some what of a tradition for the higher ups to keep either a display peice(fancy gun w a few bullets in a case) or their own personal fire arm at their desk? probally just saw to many movies about caught officers offing them selves with their own peice and could be why i think that but for some reason i seem to remember this being some what of a practice .
