"PHILADELPHIA (AP) — National Guard troops patrolling Pennsylvania airports for more than seven months after the Sept. 11 terrorist attacks were carrying unloaded weapons, a newspaper reported Sunday.
At 16 airports across the state, the troops were banned from patrolling with loaded weapons, according to guardsmen interviewed by The Philadelphia Inquirer for Sunday editions."
There are many other contemporaneous stories just like this one. The armed Guardsmen
were mostly sham. I've no clue if the guys in the pic you posted were or were not armed. Couldn't
care. My point is that the decision is up to the political authorities; of which Bloomberg happens
to be one.
If the Union is once severed, the line of separation will grow wider and wider, and the controversies which are now debated and settled in the halls of legislation will then be tried in fields of battle and determined by the sword.

What if the National Guard switches from guns to 64 oz. drinks? Would he let them in then?? Just wondering, that's all.
“We don’t need it,” Mayor Bloomberg said on Wednesday during a press update on the city’s ongoing Hurricane Sandy cleanup. “The NYPD is the only people we want on the street with guns.”
Regardless of the other reasons he does not want the guard in NYC the fact of what he states above sets him aside as to what he really is.
