From the article: "Icenhour supports the individual right to bear arms, "but I've always been disturbed by the trend of people who feel they have to carry their weapons in public," he said.

"I think it's rhetoric, and I think it's more intimidation. Why do you put a gun on your hip and walk around, if you're not a police officer? What motivates you to do that?"

So, Mr. Icenhour.....it's OK for us to exercise your rights as long as we don't leave our house???? How about the fact that 80% of all crime occurs OUTSIDE the home, meaning you are LESS SAFE out in public.

And why do I put a gun on my hip and walk around? Because a cop is too heavy to carry easily, I can't afford a personal bodyguard, and BECAUSE I FEEL LIKE IT! Don't like it.....tough shit.

People don't need to enter a govt building to kill or shoot communists. They can shoot them before they enter the building or after they exit the building. And they don't NEED guns to kill antigun communists either.

If govt people are afraid at public meetings they should either stay home or bring their guns. Nothing ever justifies more anti gun laws.

The new law that should be created is the law that prohibits any govt official (communists) from holding meetings in schools near children.
