Westroads Mall: Gun Free Zone

Robert Hawkins, the “piece of shit all his life” and hell-fodder who’s now sitting on the working end of Satan’s fork, killed eight (I’m not going to include him in the total, as that would be counting him as a “person”) and injured many more.

But there is another detail worthy of discussion:

The horrible tragedy at the Westroads Mall in Omaha, Neb. received a lot of attention Wednesday and Thursday. It should have. Eight people were killed, and five were wounded…

…But despite the massive news coverage, none of the media coverage, at least by 10 a.m. Thursday, mentioned this central fact: Yet another attack occurred in a gun-free zone.

After the mourning, or even during the mourning, the gun control maroons in Congress will be out in full force to tighten laws that do nothing but create more sitting ducks, and more Westroads Mall-style tragedies.

The question needs to be approached from a different angle. In a free nation such as ours, the fact is there’s little that can be done to prevent a Robert Hawkins from going to a public place and opening fire. So then, the question becomes this: what can we do about how long he opens fire? Plenty.

Making sure an honest and responsible citizen is unarmed does nothing to address the problem — it even perpetuates it. But this shouldn’t be a shock, as it simply follows the modus operandi of almost all government “solutions” — an increasingly anti-gun government, that is, oddly enough, increasingly surrounded by heavily armed people.
