...and the jury is still out on whether or not this man really had a right to keep a pistol in his office. I'm glad he did, legal or not, but the question of whether or not he was supposed to be armed that day has not quite been answered.

And had I asked you this time last month about Kevin Vickers being armed I have not a single doubt that you would have been loudly opposed to the idea.

NOt at all. Security in Parliament already carries guns, some of them - seems strange that the head of it wouldn't be allowed to, tho might not be the first person that comes to mind as needing one. You're barking up the wrong tree. This guy isn't your average civilian, he's a security officer with a clear need to be armed, just as the RCMP are outside of parliament. Again, it's all the regular wahoos who don't need it and would only create havoc.

The jury isn't out, given the government's past actions it's clearly illegal.

If he was able to access his pistol fast enough to use it to defend himself with it, it wasn't stored properly.

That's the legal standard for a pistol in Canada. If you can use it to defend yourself in an emergency the crown will prosecute you for improper storage.

For security organizations they are legally required to store restricted and prohibited firearms in a vault. A desk in an office is wildly short of the standard.

But you know even the RCMP would have a hard time arresting a national hero for the action that made him that public figure. Hard but not impossible.

The jury of Canadian legal experts and academics.

I've been watching Border Patrol and many an American that came here trying to conceal-carry claimed they thought they could conceal-carry up here as well. Oddly, at least 3 I've seen so far claimed to be veterans.
One old vet from Texas exclaimed his reason for not declaring the 9mm he had concealed was that in Texas, you don't tell anyone that you conceal-carry.
And while I appreciate his rationale, he was a loooong way from Texas that day.
