After three robberies that resulted in murder during the last two weeks, Warner Robins Mayor Randy Toms is urging residents to carry guns and end the assault on residents.
Toms may also ask the City Council to change an ordinance so that city employees can be armed on the job. The goal is to flood the streets with good guys with guns and stop criminals from preying upon innocents.
The Telegraph quotes Tom saying, “We need to stand up for our city and let those criminal-minded individuals know that we will fight for the safety of our community and the safety of our families, and we are serious about it.”

The three robbery-murder victims consisted of a convenience store employees, a restaurant employee, and a “public works employee.”
Councilman Mike Davis said that while he has “reservations” about allowing city employees to be armed, he will not fight against it. Davis said, “I’m dang tired of being a sitting duck. It’s time that we took back our community, and whatever it takes I’m going to support.”
