In some ways, I agree with Robert Navarro (June 28). It would be great for the average citizen not to need to “pack heat.”
Fresno County Sheriff Margaret Mims is doing a great job with the resources she has. If citizens do not want to carry guns, then they should push our county supervisors and other elected officials to provide the funds to law enforcement (state and local) to take the guns from those who should not have them – and lock up the ones who need to be locked up.
Knowing that taxpayers will not approve the funds needed, I am thankful for Sheriff Mims and other law enforcement leaders who allow qualified citizens to pack heat for their own protection and potentially the protection of others.
