Safey of All at Town Hall Meetings - Not Just
FOX news interview, Speaker of The House, John Boehner said
there are steps that are in place for congressional
officials to use to keep them and their staff members
safe, while meeting with constituents. And he said that responsible
members use them. However, then he turned around and said that he
and others did not believe that using security measures would have
stopped the Gifford's incident from occurring.
issue is not only for congressional members and their
staff. Security is for all who attend the events. It
appears that the little guy and gal are getting lost in
Security is very needed and should always be in place
when congressional members meet with a crowd. To me this is just
basic common sense. And with all due respect to John Boehner, I
believe wholehearted that had there been security at the event in
AZ, lives would have been saved.
And the answer is
not to avoid meeting with constituents, as my congresswoman, Louise
Slaughter does. The answer is to use one's brain and resources to
meet in a safe manner.
