To the editor:
I worked at the post office back when the phrase “going postal” became widespread. There was a reason it did: Several well-publicized mass shootings in post offices.
It took them a while to catch on, but eventually Congress prohibited guns in post offices. And in recent years, shooters have favored theaters, schools, churches and other targets-of-opportunity instead.
It seemed like Congress was showing common sense. Turns out it was all part of the socialist plot to steal our Second Amendment rights.
To the postal reorganization bill currently before Sen. Tom Carper’s Homeland Security committee, Sen. Rand Paul has added an amendment to allow guns in post offices. No wonder Sen. Paul is a Tea Party favorite. He obviously feels, as they do, that the country’s peace and safety are most secure in the hands of heavily armed, irrational people.
Thank goodness Kansas government uses common sense and tries to serve and protect citizens. Right ?
