Imagine more guns

Just imagine if every off-duty police, sheriff, fire and Forest Service officer, as well as many civilians, had concealed carried permits. And, that fact was widely known. Then, say 5 percent of all airline passengers were armed, the 9/11 World Trade Tower attacks would have never happened!

Think about it.

The most well-armed population is not in the United States, but in Switzerland. Every male citizen takes his rifle home after his time in military service and parks it behind the front door. The term “gun free zone” is a euphemism for “shooting gallery.”
