This article makes a great argument as to why public subsidies are a bad idea for cities. Why should the taxpayers be responsible for helping billionaire sports owners build a new home for the teams when they can afford to fund them themselves. After all they reap the most benefits.

ANOTHER Active Shooter training EX using AIRSOFT...and this one involved FBI, U.S. Secret Service, local and regional LEO's, Fire, EMS and State of Tennessee pros!  NICE!  Does anyone know if local teams/retailers were "in support" of this exercise?  We'd love to give them a HAT TIP and SALUTE!

Regular staff training can only help in emergency situations that may take place and could mean saving someone's life.
