    WDBJ news station upping security after journalists murdered

    "Days after reporter Allison Parker and cameraman Adam Ward were fatally shot by a former co-worker on live television, WDBJ’s general manager Jeff Marks said the network will be implementing security and safety changes to its live news coverage... [ ... ] The manager stopped short of explaining what measures would be taken, “because there are crazy people out there and I think it’s best if we keep our plans to ourselves.”

    Mr. Marks said he believed the discussion about tighter security is going on in every newsroom in the country..."

    So if every news outlet is upping security, logic says most likely armed security, for it's reporters/news crews will they still present a gun control for us ordinary folks bias in their reporting?
    Gun control isn't about the gun at all.... for those who want gun control it is all about their own fragile egos, their own lack of self esteem, their own inner fears, and most importantly... their own desire to dominate others. And an openly carried gun is a slap in the face to all of those things.

    The stations in south Florida usually had extra personnel on the scene with reporters, none armed that I know of. That probably will be their extra security, sending a producer out with the news crews.
