There’s No Reason to Panic

In light of the recent shooting at New Hope City Hall, a number of cities have taken up the issue of security at City Hall. I, however, am a bit wary on whether anything really needs to change.

One thing I can’t stand is when government uses a crisis or a horrible event to increase their power. We’ve seen government use school shootings, accidents, and terror attacks used as excuses to restrict our freedoms and grow the size of government.

What happened in New Hope was one lunatic shot up the hallway. The police acted according and the lunatic is dead. It seems as though New Hope had the right security measures in place so is there really a need for changes? I would appeal to city councils to discuss security measures, but not to put additional restrictions on citizens who have done nothing wrong. People should feel welcome at city hall, not intimidated.

Reforming the Met Council???? Don’t Get too Excited….. Will the Real Jeff Lunde and Peter Crema Stand Up?
