This is what eight years of Bush letting the NRA have an office in the West Wing hath wrought. Ms. Graves did not need "protection" to go to the 9/11 Memorial. How can sane Americans "protect" themselves from people like her who believe in walking around in a city with over ten million people while carrying a loaded weapon?
BTW - this shouldn't surprise anyone. After all, TN was one of the first states to pass laws allowing guns in bars & restaurants. Be sure to Google "Curry Todd". He's the state rep that wrote the legislation.
What a dumbass. Did she fly to NYC? With gun & ammo on the plane? Cause if she did, she has even bigger problems. Why would this imbecile think she needed a gun for a visit to the 9/11 memorial? It defies all common sense and reason, apparently not a huge commodity in Tennesee.
