    Who needs a gun for self defence when you have a fire truck?

    Both D.C. firefighters and police officers are upset over a new program that forces the fire department to help fight crime.

    For the past three weeks, D.C. Fire and EMS personnel have been parking their trucks at high crime neighborhoods

    At OCDO there are two things that are not tolerated, open carry intolerance and long gun open carry.
    The millions of people, armed in the holy cause of liberty, and in such a country as that which we possess, are invincible by any force which our enemy can send against us....There is no retreat but in submission and slavery! ...The war is inevitable–and let it come!

    As a firefighter, I find this to be a horrible idea. The moment a firefighter is killed the Mayor will go blame the cops.

    Give the firefighters a half-dozen AR-15s per truck, and a Glock to wear on their hip--problem solved...

    Oops, we cant do that, because it is illegal for citizens in DC to carry firearms, unless they are in some specially anointed class of badged uber-mensch.
    It is our cause to dispel the foggy thinking which avoids hard decisions in the delusion that a world of conflict will somehow mysteriously resolve itself into a world of harmony, if we just don't rock the boat or irritate the forces of aggression—and this is hogwash."

    Well the firefighters shouldn't be afraid of getting shot because guns are illegal in D.C and everyone there follows the law....bang head
