How about protecting yourself while waiting for a bus in the Charleston Transit Mall, such as occurred earlier this month?
In the city's parking buildings?
While jogging along Kanawha Boulevard to enjoy the river?
We don't want to talk about that do we, Mr. Mayor, Mr. Senate president, Governor, Sen. Wells, Madam Secretary of State and/or the editors of the Charleston Daily Mail?
Mayor Jones is elected by the citizens of Charleston, which I do not live in so I have no vote, but I can avoid that city as much as possible.
I use to love going to the movies in Charleston and to a nice restaurant like Tidewater, Soho's, or Fazio's. I loved supporting Taylor Books and the country singers at the Charleston Civic Center.
Now we go to the movies and restaurants, bookstores, and the concerts in other cities - cities that deem I am not dangerous because I passed a federal background check, and cities where as a citizen of West Virginia, my rights are not nullified by a city ordinance taking away my God- given right to protect myself, family and property - all in a world that does not seem to recognize real evil and who the real criminals are.
