Good guys with guns
On Saturday, Spokane County Sheriff Ozzie Knezovich wasn't let into the Spokane Veterans Memorial Arena while armed, something Knezovich objected to because, in his words, "the sheriff is never off-duty." But the sheriff, using his diplomatic skills, talked it over with arena staff, who he says apologized to him and cleared the air before agreeing to exempt on-duty, off-duty and retired officers with the permission of the sheriff or police chief from the venue's gun-free policy.
