CW Staffers Packing Heat

Are you going to follow Jason Chaffetz’s lead and start packing heat?

Susan Kruithof: Carrying a gun is no protection whatsoever. The tragedy that happened in Tucson could happen anywhere, and anytime. Had Rep. Giffords been carrying a gun, she still would have been shot. Stricter gun laws are the only protection any of us have.

Rachel Scott: No. I will never own a gun. Ever. I think they cause way more harm than good. You’re more likely to get your own gun used on you than stop someone from killing or hurting you.

Dan Nailen: No. Because while I’m pretty sure I’m smarter than Jason Chaffetz, I’m not smart enough to even work my cell phone properly, let alone something that can kill people.

Alissa Wells: I’m from Texas, I always pack heat. General McShootsalot never leaves his holster by my side.

Jesse Fruhwirth: Most gun-toters are dangerous idiots. I would like to carry a gun, but I haven’t the time to stay adequately trained.

Rachel Piper: I like the idea of carrying around a tiny pearl-handled pistol in my handbag like the unorthodox heroine in a historical romance, but knowing my lack of coordination, I would probably accidentally shoot myself on a daily basis.

Eric S. Peterson:
Negative. Packing heat is for people who have no technique.

Nick Clark: If they’re going to give that crazy bastard a gun, perhaps I should arm myself in the name of pre-emptive self-defense!

Bryan Bale:
Absolutely.  Maybe then I can get on The Colbert Report, my new Desert Eagle can meet Stephen’s “Sweetness”, and we can do some leg wrestling.

Jerre Wroble: At best, it provides only a false sense of security, since few pistol packers are in the right place at the right time.
