US Gangsterism

Gun sales in Ohio increased by about 65 percent following the recent mass shooting in Arizona. Sales were up by five percent nationwide and 60 percent in Arizona.

Rep. Jean Schmidt, Rep. Jason Chaffetz, Rep. Don Young and Rep. Heath Schuler are four elected representatives who proudly admit carrying concealed weaponry. Many other elected leaders clearly do so.

IMO: The practice hardly sounds as if it will be useful other than for publicity. It will provide no protection against serious assassins but could quell sensible protests and disagreements so the practice appears anti-American.   I would want a representative taking sensible political action rather than posing as some kind of murderer.
