The nemesis of the NRA

January 22, 2013 - Harry Eagar
This is too funny.

I follow a few blogs and comment from time to time on 3 or 4 of them.

Recently, there has been some discussion on several of them concerning open carry, concealed carry and the location of shootings on college campuses. To sum up a variety of gun nut comments spread over several locations, the idea is that college shootings only occur in states were colleges are 'gun-free zones' -- in places like Texas lots of people carry, although few around them may realize who is armed, so shooters will avoid shooting up Texas schools.

Well, that's the theory anyway. Practice, not so much.

The great antidote to the fantasies of the gun nuts is the daily newspaper.

The murders of 2 of the biggest, baddest gun nuts in the country in the past 60 days prove you are wrong.

A gun in the house is about 40 times more likely to be used against a member of the household than against an intruder

Bring back "The Green Mile". Punishing a person who commits murder will cost the same as turning on a light bulb.

So do you imply that a “gun free” zone is safer? Yea, like that is a fact. Look at Washington DC. Gun free zone, yet murders galore! Look at NY, da, same thing. Funny thing, when an armed person confronts a shooter and stops the carnage, the papers choose to ignore it. Even honest law enforcement folks realize police are only minutes away (best case) when you need them now! Remember, not all of you live in towns or cities. You better be able to defend yourself and your family. More restrictive gun laws will not stop a criminal from having weapons, it only restricts a law abiding citizen. I expect more from you.
