SHOCKING! ONLY ONE SOUL WAS CARRYING A BACK-UP?
SANDY, Utah (Reuters) - Two dozen gun-carrying Republicans surrendered their loaded weapons on Saturday, complying with a security requirement so they could enter an arena where U.S. Vice President Dick Cheney (news - web sites) was speaking.
"These are people who just want to defend themselves," Janalee Tobias, a member of Women Against Gun Control, told Reuters as 24 people with permits to carry concealed weapons surrendered 25 loaded guns.
The guns were stored in lockers outside the arena where Cheney addressed the Utah Republican Party state convention in Sandy, just south of Salt Lake City.
"D.C. fire department officials want to punish two paramedics who followed a doctor's instructions and revived a man because the routine procedure they used is not in the department's outdated medical protocols book."
The moral is its okay to let someone die but for God's sake don't break the rules! And we're supposed to depend on 911!?
