Something I don’t understand is the hullabaloo about whether or not Alyssa Milano had an armed body guard a Gun Control Rally. By all media accounts, most Americans want gun control. The term I hear used most often is “common sense gun control.” What this actually means can be debated.
I think to everyone it includes topics such as waiting periods, background checks, preventing those with mental illnesses from gun ownership. The topic that sometimes gets lost in this discussion is that “common sense gun control” does not mean prohibiting gun ownership.
So was Alyssa Milano’s bodyguard armed? Following this public incident, Milano tweeted “this security guy has had training and passed a background check. These are the common sense gun reform policies we are fighting for for everyone.” Meaning: a body guard (or “security guy”) who passes a background check has every right to own a gun. That’s common sense.
