From the comments in the Roanoke Times article I linked to last week, about the state Senator promising to introduce a bill banning guns in churches.
That pretty much sums up the whole argument against
victim disarmament gun-free zones. Someone who is bent on murder isn’t going to let a law banning guns stop him, and (as history shows) is likely to seek out such a place because he can be sure no one will have the best tool available to stop him. Victim disarmament Gun-free zones only disarm the law-abiding – the ones you don’t need to worry about.
Update: A second QOTD from the same thread:
‘Nuff said, there.
