Lefties like Piers Morgan have visions of gunfights in their heads, probably from watching westerns when they were small children. Unfortunately their minds never progressed past the infantile stage.
Here is a quiz for them
- Banks have armed guards because
- a) They want a gunfight
- b) They want to deter criminals
- Obama sends his children to a school with armed guards because
- a) He wants a gunfight around his children
- b) He wants to deter criminals
Shooters target gun free zones because they know that they can kill (for a while) with impunity. Chicago has lots of shootings, because the bad guys know that can act with impunity. The citizens are disarmed and the police have no interest in intervening.
Piers Morgan displays world beating stupidity when he discusses shootings. He is afraid that armed citizens would have led to a gunfight in the theatre in Aurora.
A sane person would understand that James Holmes went into the theatre because he knew that it was a gun-free zone, and that a possible shootout is still a much better scenario than an armed madman who faces no opposition.
