I'd rather focus to recapture Andy Griffith - Mayberry USA, let Barney run the office while Andy and Aunt Bee solve crimes, and we all sleep soundly after milk and cookies before going to bed each night. And Andy never has his gun with him because, well,.... why? There's always Barney for back-up. Besides we have a new Sheriff in town who's gonna fix everything. Web Link

Unfortunately, with cartels and gangs having access to military grade weapons to carry out their criminal ventures, I'd rather have our local police have access with proper training to defeat them with the same weapons if necessary. We give up too much blood across this country in the loss of citizens, children and police officers. Protect the community at all costs.
