Why weren’t Watertown residents told to get their guns?

Before the capture of Dzhokar Tsarnaev, with the heroic police manhunt for  him in full swing in Watertown, Massachusetts, Governor Deval Patrick and public  safety officials admonished residents there and in surrounding communities to  stay inside, lock their doors and answer only for uniformed police officers.

These steps, while perhaps wise for many residents of Massachusetts, also  suggested that all residents of Massachusetts were defenseless and should act  accordingly.

One piece of information, for example, was left out of every press conference  that took place in the aftermath of the Boston Marathon bombings:  If you  have a licensed firearm, make sure it is within reach, that it is loaded and  that your family members are nearby.

The reason that residents of Watertown and Boston were not told to  keep their guns close by is only because of the liberal political tide that  seeks to take guns out to sea with it.

This directive, in my opinion, would have been a proper public safety message  and public health initiative to safeguard many homes in Watertown and the  metro-Boston area.

It also would have avoided the unfortunate subconscious message to Bostonians  that they cannot or should not take steps to protect their own lives and their  loved ones and their homes in the future, in one very clear way:  By  exercising their Second Amendment rights to own firearms and to use them when  gravely threatened or attacked.

It strains the imagination to wonder why any adult in Watertown,  Massachusetts who does not currently own a gun and who lived through the horror  of a terrorist hiding out in that city would not be applying for a firearms  permit this coming week.  So, too, for Boston. And, of course, citizens  around the country would do well to learn the same lesson.

The reason that residents of Watertown and Boston were not told to keep their  guns close by (or to congregate in the dwellings of gun owners) is only because  of the liberal political tide that seeks to take guns out to sea with it.

Almost inexplicably, gun control efforts from the president and members of  Congress continue, despite recent mass attacks with a knife (in Texas, where 14  innocent people were slashed) and in Massachusetts, where bombs made of crock  pots, ball bearings and nails brought horrific casualties.

Were Dzhokar Tsarnaev or someone of similar ilk to seek a home to enter in  the Boston area or any other town or city in America, I can say with near  certainty that an NRA sticker clearly visible on the front door or an adjacent  window would make him choose another door to break down.  And, in any case,  a gun in the house, at the ready, would have been the best defense against being  another of his victims.
