While I support the 2nd amendment in its entirety, I don't believe we should be reverting to the days of the old Wild, Wild West. Not everyone has the force of law enforcement on their side to back up a Congressperson or Senator in a time when seconds count. My CCW instructor was quite clear that unless you a) have a clean shot, and b) fear for your own or others' safety should you ever fire a weapon. It's not like the old west where men with guns settled their differences at high noon with a clear path to each other, and certainly is not like the movies at the movie theaters. This is real life, and unless you are practicing everyday with realistic situations that you MIGHT come across, I think it's best to let law enforcement do their job. We're not supposed to be reverting backwards. That being said, I think if a senator or congressperson (man or woman) wants to be armed, they should have to take a course like the rest of us, and be screened for psychological factors that could be a red flag on whether they'd get aggressive and lose their temper. However, if a President can claim he can shoot someone in the middle of Times Square in New York city and not lose a single vote, I think we ought to reexamine why we suddenly want to arm ourselves. Particularly our elected representatives.
