“A disgruntled ex-cop carrying a loaded gun [not shown] bypassed metal detectors at a federal building in Philadelphia and entered the FBI’s office there this week after flashing a fake police badge and his inactive ID card, according to sources and court records obtained by ABC News. The FBI ultimately took the man’s gun after becoming suspicious, but ‘he could’ve shot up half the office by that point,’ as one law enforcement expert put it after reading the court records.” I reckon security checkpoints make people complacent. Strike that . . .
They make disarmed people complacent. They figure if I’m disarmed, everyone else must be disarmed as well. Situational awareness? Gone. How hard would it be to shoot a security guard anyway? Four words: Washington Navy Yard shooting.
The best solution: security checkpoints where needed and an armed populace. Am I wrong? [h/t Pascal]
