Quote From SSA

Below is a quote from the article, “Campus Carry, Fiction vs. Fact”

I won’t bother quoting the rest of the paragraph, but suffice it to say that the vast majority of mass shootings take place in GUN FREE ZONES! This is because the killer wants to have as long as possible to terrorize his victims before encountering resistance. FBI studies have concluded that AS SOON AS THE SHOOTER IS MET WITH RESISTANCE they either shoot themselves or commit suicide by cop. In other words, if Cho had met one or more CHP holders who were armed in that first class room, it might have ended there. Even more profound, if Cho had thought that there were most likely armed teachers, students, librarians, visitors, etc. throughout the campus, he may not have even attempted his rampage.

Laws don’t stop crime. Murder is against the law. It doesn’t matter what the vehicle is. Self defense is a basic human right. Are our students’ and teachers’ lives worth less when they are on campus?  Do their rights disappear when they cross a threshold?   We can’t turn back the hands of time, but we can learn from the past.  There are campuses around the country which allow permit holders to carry on campus and there have been no rivers of blood, no drunken shoot-outs in the dorms.

I found the article interesting. It was written a little over a year ago. I don’t know much about any of this, except that I’m sure that ‘outlawing’ guns will mean that only outlaws have them. I also think that sensational news and other TV, and ignorance is a huge part of the problem. [Ignorance = mental illness in my thinking.]
