Who said there are no honest dems?
WE 2nd Amendment defenders must use this as OPPORTUNITY to point out that (nearly) ALL of these mass killings take place in “gun free zones”, or “gun banned” areas.
Those who wish to get this type of attention, and thereby get notoriety and commit suicide, invariably choose such areas they know are safe for their dirty work. The remedy which would actually help is exactly the opposite of what the gun-grabbers and fear mongers trumpet incessantly - concealed carry in all of these areas! In this case, allow ALL weapon qualified teachers and school employees to carry, and encourage them to do so. Make federal handouts for education contingent on schools success in having employees who are willing to do so.
I have a “Christmas Party” today. I am certain this subject will come up. I will loudly repeat this.
My “go to” expert on this is John Lott, of “More Guns, Less Crime”. johnrlott.blogspot.com - He was interviewed by Mark Levin yesterday evening, and stated that only one mass killing in the last 30 or whatever years was NOT in a “gun free” or “gun ban” area. The Colorado theater shooter could have chosen 5 theaters closer to his home, but chose the theater that powerfully advertised “no guns allowed”.
Time to get back to common sense and make concealed carry both the law of the land, and the expected practice of law-abiding citizens.
