While I was in a public library the other day, I observed an individual entering the library with a firearm on his hip.
I asked the librarian about this, and she replied that state law allows firearms to be carried in all public places, including public libraries.
The libraries are full of young children. Their parents should be aware of what they are exposed to. I used to think of the library as a place of calm, a refuge from the craziness of the outside world. Not anymore.
