Delaware Looks To Restrict Open Carry

posted on July 17, 2015

A bill permitting counties and municipalities to ban open carry in their buildings is making its way to Delaware Gov. Jack Markell’s desk. Newark, Del., Mayor Polly Sierer characterizes the issue as one of inclusion, claiming a few residents have stopped attending council meetings since other attendees started bringing firearms.

That’s a mighty funny notion of “inclusion”: Only her sanctioned aesthetic (that of being disarmed) qualifies as inclusive? Dictionaries say different. More peculiar still is the idea that “feel(ing) comfortable” in those same meetings should trump personal security.

Or is it just one more example of a public servant who is protected by good guys with guns (at tax-payer expense, no less) thinking your life and loved ones don’t deserve the same?
