LEO in Wyoming...
LEO is LEO, even in Wyoming. Members of the Police State like the Police State.
Gillette City Council member Kevin McGrath said he also opposes the legislation, saying city employees already have enough to do without having to deal with firearms. And having someone argue before council members while wearing a gun, he said, can be intimidating.
"It doesn't pertain to me anyhow," said McGrath, a Gillette police officer. "I can carry a gun in City Hall."
Personally, I think Government Officials should be intimidated - it discourages them from abusing the power of their office.
The discussion is about legislation that bans Wyoming localities from passing Gun Control. The LEO (McGrath) thinks it is bad that plain ol' Citizens can carry.
But, as his hubris is fully displayed in the last sentence, he, as LEO, is not encumbered by silly laws against Citizens.
So, if we make a move regarding Wyoming, we still have some housecleaning to do...
Here's the story.
