I was very disappointed when I read what Chief Lewis said about his officers (The Leader, June 30).
I would be insulted if I were a Covington Police Officer. DSCC or TCAT employees will know who is carrying and will not call the police on a legally-armed citizen.
As a legally-armed citizen, if approached, I will submit to the officers instructions, show my permit and it would not be a big deal. The hostile armed person will be dealt with professionally.
Have a little more confidence in your men. My main concern is the treatment some officers have received after the incident. I have spoken to MANY policemen and never had one object to my carrying.
Terrorists and other nutcases only attack gun-free zones. They are not stupid, just evil cowards or crazy. Gun laws have NO affect on what criminals do. They would just disarm law-abiding citizens.
When we are disarmed, we will soon no longer have the right to vote. We will obey the government or die. We will be subjects, not citizens (Creating a dictatorship 101). The Second Amendment is the right that secures all others.
