While this shooting at the Sandy Hook Elementary today in Connecticut is tragic, I'd like to stress something again. IT WAS A GUN FREE ZONE. Oh look a tango went into a school, a gun free zone, with allegedly two firearms and attacked children. You anti-gun nuts, this is not an excuse to take firearms away, this is an excuse to relax laws so that firearms can be carried by staff in schools to protect students, carried by parents (I'm seeing reports of at least one parent killed at the school) so they can protect themselves and their children etc. Thank you.

AURORA, Colo. A gunman opened fire early Friday at a suburban Denver movie theater, leaving at least 14 people dead and 50 others injured, Aurora Police Chief Dan Oates said.
People are always amazed when I insist on sitting in the back row at movie theaters... people are always amazed why, everywhere but work, I usually have at least one firearm on me. I've also often told people that any terrorist group, given half a brain, would send 5-10 people into movie theaters all over the U.S. at the midnight showing of some big summer blockbuster with ballbearing bombs or easily obtainable illegally modified automatic weapons and do this.
Fortunately this was not an organized terrorist attack, sadly 14 people are dead at the time of me posting this but this could have been in the hundreds. But guess what, every theater I have ever been in is a 'gun free zone'... the owners happilly put placards and stickers in the windows banning knives and firearms. Well guess what, I don't give a shit... if you see mine and want to ask me leave I gladly will. The matter of the fact is there are lunatics that don't give a damn about your window decal and, whether you like it or not, will come into your establishment and do harm if they feel inclined to do so.
This gun toting American will continue to go see movies in the theater, in fact I'll go see Batman tonight or tomorrow. This gun toting American will continue to carry concealed into theaters that prohibit it as weel, please feel more than welcome to approach me and ask me to leave and I will but I'm not leaving my weapon system in my vehicle. I am not going to sit in your loud darken theater with no protection...
