In the past, when watching news interviews with Thompson, I've noticed rifles standing in a rack behind him in an office.
Is that his personal office, or is it an office provided by the county?
If it's his personal office, I have no problem with it.
It it's his County Commissioner office, they need to be removed.
I'm sure there are signs stating "no weapons allowed" in the building.
Functional or not, the letter of the law should prevail, and if on County property, they should be removed, and citations issued.
Personally, I don't care for his personality, and his confrontational, belligerent attitude.
I'm sure New Hanover County could do better in representation that someone who has a chip on his shoulder.
He certainly seems to have a very short fuse, for someone in politics, and I don't see him going any further than Commissioner, or political lackey.
I thank him for his military service, however, when an elected official forgets that he/she is representing all the people, not just the one's that agree with him, it's time to resign and allow someone with a cooler head to help guide the County into the future.
Thompson should chill out before his political career follows his
"framed picture" into the toilet.
