A story in The Sun ("Should cops carry weapons while off-duty?" June 8) quotes Anthony Guglielmi, the Baltimore Police Department's chief spokesman, saying "they (the officers) shouldn't take their guns into a liquor establishment when they know they are going to get intoxicated." Would he rather they leave their guns in the car so they are armed while driving home intoxicated? Will it be OK for the armed cops to show up for duty the next day with a terrible hangover? And would he kindly explain what kind of establishment it would be OK for them to take their guns into when they know they are going to get intoxicated? One would hope the department takes a long, hard look at its rules.
