Letter: Bad guys shun areas with guns

Who do the bad guys target? School children, college dorms, senor citizens, churches, and like the coward at Fort Hood, they are looking for somewhere that is safe for them. If no one has guns, it's a safe bet that's a good place to be a bad guy.

As for me, let me be around men and women who are armed. I do not carry a gun, but I'm glad some do. I feel much more comfortable in a restaurant, business or store that allows guns.

Now I see County Manager Ron Walker wants money to install body scanners. I say, save our money; let the citizens that are permitted to carry guns bring them to the meetings and I guarantee the bad guys won't show up.
