A Close Call
Imagine my surprise when I read this. That is the very same PetSmart that I go to. As a matter of fact, Obama must have gotten there just after I left, because I was there Wednesday getting my weekly supply of cat food.
And that makes me wonder what kind of security precautions the Secret Service takes when the president wanders into Virginia, where just about anyone over 21 can carry a gun. I was carrying my gun when I was at the PetSmart.
Of course, Washington has had more than 135 murders this year, despite their tight gun control, while Alexandria has about about five (if that many), despite our "Wild West mentality." So, maybe the Secret Service doesn't sweat it.
