Roaring about life since 2009

Gun Rights from Chicago?

I still have issues with using the tragedy at Ft. Hood to prove a political point, but I can’t help but wonder how many of those soldiers would still be alive if Army policy allowed some degree of firearm freedom for its troops on-base. 

This article talks about “the folly of ‘gun-free zones,’ which attract and assist people bent on mass murder instead of deterring them.”

Surprise! Disarming victims ends badly :: CHICAGO SUN-TIMES :: Other Views.

I mean, come on, if you advertise publicly that no one in the vicinity is armed, what do you think a mass-shooter will think?  What will terrorists think?  What will criminals think?  And for God’s sake, this was an ARMY BASE, don’t tell me these men and women were passive onlookers incapable of handling themselves and their firearms under stressful circumstances.  If there would have been a gun in friendly hands that day, who knows how many would have died? 

The moral of the story is that I am so goddamn sick of seeing these mass-murderers think they can get away with a shooting spree, but I am even more sick of these pathetic, blithering leftist idiots who stand in the way of law-abiding citizens exercising their Constitutional right to bear arms in defense of their fellow citizens, or fellow students, or fellow soldiers.  Enough with these so-called “gun-free zones,” how will it deter anyone but a law-abiding, rule-following citizen?  The criminal has already decided to break the law and KILL PEOPLE, what’s one more rule broken?  “Oops, I brought a gun on campus/base, better not follow through on my plan to kill and maim dozens of people.”  You’ve got to be kidding me, do people really believe this?

Here’s a follow-up to that article for everyone to check out:

Time to Put An End to Army Bases as Gun-Free Zones

Stay safe, buy a gun
