Guns protect people on streets

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.

“The day I need to carry a weapon to feel safe in the HyVee is the day I go to a shrink for help with my excess fear.”

The day when a single Mother in Washington D.C. carries a weapon to feel safe in HyVee is the day she took an active step in dealing with real fears.

Odd how the definition of “irrational or excess fear” changes from person to person and from location to location.

One more letter that essentially says we should all be "safe" by walking down the street with a hogleg strapped on.

The day I need to carry a weapon to feel safe in the HyVee is the day I go to a shrink for help with my excess fear.
