With all the carnage that has occurred in areas such as academic campuses, public buildings, shopping malls, post offices, etc., into which law abiding citizens are not permitted to carry arms, has anyone stopped to wonder why few -- actually almost no -- similar massacres take place at locales such as, for example, gun shows, shooting ranges, gun clubs, gun shops, etc., in which armed citizens abound?
Also, isn't it also a wonderment that this disparity hasn't been noted, or least gone unreported by the mainstream press, and left for an individual blogger like K.R. Mudgeon to point out?
The fact of the matter is that those intent on mayhem are well aware of the truth of the observation posted elsewhere at this site that "when seconds count, the police are just minutes away." Accordingly the sociopaths realize that in venues that lawmakers have designated as free fire zones for them, they can carry out their evil intentions long before being confronted by any countervailing force.
Every individual's life is more important to him or her than it is to anyone else. Individuals who truly understand this and its implications will assume responsibility for protecting themselves. They will take such steps as are necessary and appropriate to maximize their own safety and security. Sheeple never will do so.
