Question of the Day: Are “Gun-Free Zones” Really “Target-Rich Environments”?

I couldn’t help but notice that the weekend’s tragedy in Norway bears a striking resemblance to those at Virginia Tech, Columbine, Fort Hood, and others across These United States. Nope. I’m not talking about the shooter being a full-goose Bozo, ass-clown, who doesn’t have two, lucid brain cells to rub together. Nor am I talking about their choice in weapons, amount of ammo, or the number killed. No, I’m speaking of these idiot’s undying affection for “gun free zones” . . .

Note: All of Norway is one great big “gun free zone.” In the media, we’re hearing endless tales of how “peaceful” a country Norway is. (Yeah, that Viking heritage and peaceful Norse gods like Thor just fade into the mists of time at a time like this, don’t they?) But all those gun laws in Norway seem to have done just about as much good there as they do here.

In Norway, only the cops and military have guns. Except for the crazies and the criminals. But the law-abiding folks, they’re gun-free.

So I ask you, do gun-free zones attract homicidal nutjobs like trailer parks seem to attract tornados, or is it just a coincidence that the mass-murderers seem to prefer gun-free locales for their target practice, oh about 10 to 1?

How many ships does the Navy have?

278, yes that’s right. And the money “saved” went to pay for more welfare bums.

Poll: Romney Out in Front Among Declared GOP 2012 Candidates

Can we agree that on Sept 1st 2012 whoever is ahead on that day we all back as the candidate to run against Obama? Because whoever it is will be 100% better than Barry. Then no stinking 3nd party crap, no sitting on our hands or sitting it out. Because this one is for all the marbles.
