More Security At City Hall?

In December we and the rest of the nation talked about a story out of Florida where a gunman took over a School Board meeting and could have killed members of the School Board. Luckily for them, he was a bad shot and ended up taking his own life. (Read more after the jump)

After this event, we wondered if security would be increased at LISD and City Hall.

Fast forward to this month and the shooting of Rep. Giffords in Tucson at a Town Hall meeting. Many were shot, some died. What about security?

This past Friday, a local blogger wrote a story about how he could see events unfolding at a City Council meeting and a County meeting if a gunman walked in and started shooting. I read the blog post and honestly, it didn’t strike me as that much different than the rest of the hatred that author puts out there. However, since elected officials were mentioned by name I understand why the City and County took the blog postings so seriously.

The question now is, should there be more security at City Council meetings? Or any meetings on the local level? Short answer: No.

City and County officials should be easy to talk to. And I believe that they want to be easily accessible to the public. There haven’t been any real threats to our local leaders and if there are they should be handled on a case by case basis.
