But the world IS dangerous. What is good about pretending it isn't? The fact is, "Gun Free Zones" don't work, as has been amply illustrated as
every major shooting event, from Columbine to Virginia tech to an average mall has been done in a Gun Free Zone.
Sure, you can always play a "what if" story showing how someone could still inflict damage even though an armed guard was present. I have no doubt
of that, but a little known fact in the Clackamas mall shooting in Oregon was that the shooter was confronted by a citizen with a concealed weapon,
ran from the man, and killed himself. I think three people, including the shooter, died, and that's terrible. But the fact is that a responsible
person with a weapon of his own stopped what could have been a much more deadly rampage.
Of course, you don't see the MSM pointing out this fact. Someone might get the wrong idea that a citizen with a concealed carry permit might actually
be useful instead of a menace to society.
