Whatever happened to a fear of criminals ? Rapists ?
Seriously, people are more afraid of carrying a gun than they are of an attacking grizzly bear (the antigun nut actually ventures out into the grizzly bear habitat while unarmed).
So here we have the State finally respecting the 2nd amendment (to a degree), allowing people to carry guns, AND then the local govts AND public school administrators trying quickly to neutralize the new law by banning the weapons as if the State did something terribly wrong.
There are two aspects to this. Schools believe a dangerous gun ban will continue to attract their customers (new students). For them, safety is not an issue. And local govts are so antigun (and against the Bill of Rights) they think it right to ban guns from govt buildings (where the people visit).
If guns are so bad and dangerous, and if gun bans were so effective, then why is it cities like Chicago and D.C. that banned all weapons had the higher crime rates ?
