You may have seen in the news yesterday that a disgruntled worker went on a shooting spree at a FedEx facility in Kennesaw, GA, yesterday, wounding six people before turning his gun on himself and committing suicide.
Of course, radical left wing blog Think Progress gleefully noted that Kennesaw has a rather unique municipal ordinance, one that requires each household to own a firearm. TP wonders where the armed citizen responders were, why didn’t this heavily armed community immediately gun down the attacker?
Now, FedEx, like most private entities, is free to restrict the presence of weapons on its facilities. I’m not even going to suggest that FedEx should reexamine that policy. They have the right to decide.
But I am hard pressed to think of any mass shooting incident in recent history that hasn’t taken place in a “gun-free” zone.
