More Guns

Wayne Rausch, the Sheriff of Latah County, Idaho, has just endeared himself to me.

MOSCOW, Idaho (AP) — The sheriff of a north-central Idaho county where a shooting rampage left four dead and three wounded last May wants more people to obtain concealed weapons permits and carry guns, including on the University of Idaho campus, to improve public safety.

After an incident like that, this guy has the guts to come out and speak against the politically correct atmosphere that contributed to this outrage.

"In my opinion, if there were more students with (concealed weapons permits), the world would be safer," Latah County Sheriff Wayne Rausch told the Lewiston Tribune on Tuesday. "Just because we (law enforcement officers) are charged with protecting the public, doesn't mean the public shouldn't be able to protect itself."

Amen and amen brother. Cops only protect the public while we are physically there. Until we get there, you guys are on your own. Conduct yourselves accordingly.
