Freshman Rep. Grimm: Low-Cost Ways To Make Congress More Secure

Rep. Michael Grimm (R-N.Y.), a former FBI Special Agent and combat Marine, sent a letter to House Speaker John Boehner (R-Ohio) Tuesday night recommending security training for Members of Congress.

Grimm is against knee-jerk legislation in the aftermath of the attempted assassination of Rep. Gabrielle Giffords (D-Ariz.) last Saturday, but does suggest Members of Congress be trained to protect themselves.

In an exclusive interview with HUMAN EVENTS on his security plan, Grimm said, “Legislation within days of an incident as shocking and horrific as this is a mistake.”
