I wonder if Bruce Lindgren (6/29, Letters) feels like the inside of the Supreme Court building is like some of the crime-ridden streets of our major cities. You need protection on the streets these days, but not inside the White House. Remember, there are guns inside D.C.’s public buildings. It’s just that only the security officers have them.
It makes sense to me to secure our public buildings from possible terrorist or criminal domestic attacks. The people on the streets are on their own and had better protect themselves.
