Feds Want Guns -- To Save Their Lives
The alternative (Examiner) media told you:
In the aftermath of the shooting incident at Los Angeles International Airport, the American Federation of Government Employees, the labor union that represents 45,000 federal transportation security officers, on Monday urged the Department of Homeland Security's new secretary and President Barack Obama to create special units of armed TSA security officers with police training and arrest authority while on duty at the nation's airports. "The sad truth is that our TSA officers are subject to daily verbal assaults and far too frequent physical attacks," said Jeffrey David Cox Sr., president of the American Federation of Government Employees. "We feel a larger and more consistent armed presence in screening areas would be a positive step."
The Uninvited Ombudsman notes however that:
Guns save lives. Even government agents know it. I have nothing to add.
