    ID sheriff: more concealed gun permits would boost public safety

    I'm beginning to think Idaho is a pretty neat place..

    MOSCOW, Idaho (AP) - The sheriff of a north-central Idaho county where a shooting rampage left four dead and three wounded last May wants more people to obtain concealed weapons permits and carry guns, including on the University of Idaho campus, to improve public safety.

    "In my opinion, if there were more students with (concealed weapons permits), the world would be safer," Latah County Sheriff Wayne Rausch told the Lewiston Tribune on Tuesday. "Just because we (law enforcement officers) are charged with protecting the public, doesn't mean the public shouldn't be able to protect itself."

    That is a great quote!

    I don't guess we have a single Sheriff or Chief in Georgia who has ever been quoted thusly or would testify like so in front of a General Assembly committee?

    I can think of one Sherriff in GA that thinks like that, though Id on't know that he's ever formally stated so.
