Gun Free Zones and American Mass Murder: Liberty is Rooted in the Fear of God

It has happened again, two more College shootings; one in the wee hours of the morning, the other at midday. Northern Arizona University and Texas Southern University shootings come on the same day the imposter was scheduled to visit Roseburg, Oregon, where eight students and a teacher were shot and killed last week at Umpqua Community College. The odd thing of course is that all three colleges were gun free zones. So how did that gun break the law and enter a gun free zone and murder people? Read more […]

CNN Radio: “Gun Free Zone Means Nothing to a Shooter.”

Another mass shooting in a gun free zone — this time in a culture that speaks honestly about what is going on. At the time I am writing this post it is October 1 and I am listening to the CNN Newsroom on the TuneIn “Radio” app on my iPhone. There has been another mass shooting. At this point there are not many details and even fewer can be confirmed. Drudge linked this story at the L.A. Times: At least seven people were killed and 20 injured by a gunman who opened fire Thursday at a Read more […]

Thomas Massie: End Federal Gun Ban in Schools!

The Federal gun ban is unconstitutional and makes students easy targets for shooters. One of Ron Paul’s heroic attempts to liberate the American people seven years ago has been revived! Rare reports, “Thomas Massie introduces bill to repeal law banning guns in schools.” Rep. Thomas Massie (R-Ky.) introduced “the Safe Students Act” last week to repeal “the Gun-Free School Zones Act of 1990.” “Gun-free school zones are ineffective. They make people less safe by inviting criminals Read more […]

Not Gun or Ammunition; Suspended from School Anyway

A child was suspended from school for possessing a spent shell casing. According to the Chanute Tribune, Chanute Elementary School is doing a grand job educating students that they live under the thumb of an anti-boy, anti-rationality police state. [See also, “Massachusetts Educrats Lose Minds over Students’ Hobby.”] The boy made the mistake of bringing a spent shell casing to the school to show his friends. A student at Chanute Elementary School was suspended last week over possession Read more […]

Guns Everywhere! A Single Cheer For Bloomberg Businessweeks’ “4 Blunt Points”

This article made one good point that I doubt many other liberals will admit to: Skeptics of expansive gun rights need to respond intelligently. The smart response is not scorn or exaggeration. For better or worse, gun ownership has come to symbolize a range of deeply felt ideas about culture and government authority. Making fun of people who view their firearms as emblems of liberty and traditional values (however they define those values) will neither change minds nor repeal legislation. While Read more […]

Man Gets Prosecuted By Zero-Tolerance Law; Friends Appeal To His Intent

An interesting and instructive story out of Buffalo: “[Dwayne Ferguson] was among local activists who stood with Assemblywoman Crystal Peoples-Stokes last year lobbying for a law that would make possessing a gun on school property a felony.” Problem: Last week, Mr. Ferguson was found in possession of a gun on school property—so, he supported a law that has now ended up tagging him with two felony charges—unintended consequences, anyone? I believe this excerpt from the story includes the Read more […]

Study Finds Entirely Irrelevant Fact That Shooters Don’t Target Gun-Free Zones

A column at USAToday.com is taking aim at the notion that those who commit mass shootings specifically target gun-free zones because they know that law-abiding citizens will respect the signs telling them no guns are allowed on the premises. The author of the piece, Mark Follman, cites ongoing studies that he and others have been publishing at MotherJones.com: “Among the 62 mass shootings over the past 30 years that we studied, not a single case includes evidence that the killer chose to target Read more […]
