Letter: Police should set example with guns

Saturday’s front page of the Post Independent story about a Rifle High mass casualty drill included a photo of a Rifle police officer, drawn gun in hand, with an index finger right next to the trigger.

We assume that gun had an empty chamber. Police can set an example for the community by treating every weapon as if it were loaded, and keeping handguns holstered around kids.
