    "Firefighters are being armed across the country!"

    Well, that's what Alex Jones and his ilk would say.... probably in preparations for the mass disarmament of the civilian population...

    Here's the actual story, where firefighters are having their department issued firearms taken away because their job duties no longer require them to be armed... Arson investigators, Bomb squad members, and anti-terrorism investigators on the FD are issued weapons and training... Some of them change job duties and their guns are no longer a "part of the job".
    It could be worse.

    Yeah man! Of course in some 'hoods they ought to have one hose or two for crowd control... it IS getting dangerous for first responders and FD in some areas.

    My old county some of the Fire Marshalls were armed and had arrest powers. They had to go through the police academy. If they didn't graduate or later on when they got promoted out of a law enforcement type assignment they turned in their weapons and badges. Just a matter of having the appropriate tools for their job.

    Anything Michael Coleman, Columbus mayor and loud-and-proud gun-hating member of Bloomberg's circus does in this realm comes as no surprise. Columbus used to have a police chief by the name of Jackson who removed shotguns from patrol cars so "officers will do their jobs". Columbus has a long history of anti-gun politics, yet gunshows continue to conduct business there.
