Quote of the Day – 2011-04-18

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.

Any place that a criminal can take a gun illegally, is a place that a law-abiding citizen should be able to take a gun legally.

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.

It will be interesting to see the discussion on today’s editorial about this issue.

Update: A second QOTD from the same thread:

I’ll take a Glock over statistics any day.

‘Nuff said, there.
