Skip to comments.Gun group says active killer events quadrupled after Gun Free School Zones Act

A graph prepared by an author and member of the state gun rights group Georgia Carry.org notes a marked increase in active killer events in spite of federal laws intended to help curb such incidents. GCO research staffer Michael Menkus, previously brought to the attention of Gun Rights Examiner readers as the author of Guns Good Bans Bad - An Analysis of U.S. Department of Justice 2010 Crime Statistics, recently completed a chart that demonstrates a quadrupling of these events (see photo accompanying this column).
Along with studying how changes in carry laws change crime rates, I also study Active Killer events and decided to look at the impact of the Gun-Free School Zone law, Menkus told Gun Rights Examiner.
I found two interesting things. First, since the law was enacted we went from one incident every decade to four, he reported. Second, guess whose bill the original GFSZA was in? The guy President Obama just selected to spearhead the White House response to the Sandy Hook Elementary School mass shooting.

Someone should ask Joe if that was an intended, or unintended, consequence.
They used it to inflict a double whammy on pistol-packing drug dealers. In so doing, they also enabled mass murderers in affluent areas (without any violent drug dealers for miles). The law of unintended consequences strikes again.
Well, obviously, it’s not a consequence at all, it’s a coincidence. The actual cause COULDN’T be the GFSZA, because the INTENT of that act was to prevent these occurrences.
When Joe Biden starts to speak a sentence, he has no idea what he is trying to communicate. By the time he has completed the sentence, he still has not made any coherent point.
Even by accident.
He lurches from one concept to another with no logical progression from the first to the next.
Kind of a waste of human protoplasm. Or it would be if Joe were actually human, and not some kind of lizard or something.

Eric Holder found it nearly impossible to confiscate everyone’s guns, so he devised a plan that would attack THE GUN DEALERS (FFL’s).. This plan would be follow-on to Bush’s WIDE RECEIVER (a program using TRACED guns for capture of Mexican narco-terrorists) for easy concealment with the cover story being ‘a program to track Mexican narco-terrorists’; This program called ‘Fast & Furious’ used UNTRACEABLE guns because it wasn’t really implemented to catch drug dealers. It was implemented to cause outrage at the proliferation of murders in Mexico, aimed at shutting down American firearms dealers thus making it impossible for Americans to get guns. The project failed because a whistleblower blew the cover off of it, hence the ‘Fast & Furious’ investigations in Congress. Holder was found to be in ‘contempt’ of Congress but still has his job. Perhaps he might ‘talk’ if 0bama were to force him to resign, just like the State Dept. employees might ‘talk’ if they were ACTUALLY forced to resign but IN REALITY STILL HAVE THEIR JOBS JUST LIKE HOLDER!!!! We STILL DO NOT KNOW TO THIS DAY WHAT OBAMA’S INVOLVEMENT WAS IN THIS DASTARDLY PLAN TO STOP THE SALE OF GUNS IN AMERICA.
