rebuttals to "Gun Control"
June 11th 2013
California forbids guns on campus. Therefore the only defensive weapons permitted on school grounds are police weapons, which are always several minutes away. This politically-created arrangement gave the Santa Monica College murderer several minutes to kill at will. The murderer was a young ex Santa Monica College student.
As usual, this murderer had a history of mental problems. He murdered his family and set fire to their home moments before he went to campus and murdered three more people. I've read conflicting accounts that the murderer was shot by police or may have shot himself once confronted by police. He planned to kill many people and chose the school on purpose.
Students didn't stand a chance. California gives county sheriffs the discretion to issue concealed carry permits. Many sheriffs do. Some choose to keep citizens disarmed instead. Santa Monica is in Los Angeles county, a county which refuses carry permits to its honest citizens. In addition, Santa Monica College is a "gun-free school zone" under California's Penal Code 626.9. The "gun-free school zone" exists in name only: a plastic sign won't stop a nut job or a determined criminal. The posturing of politicians left students and staff unprotected.. as it has many times before.
Anti-gun politicians blame the gun. Anti-gun politicians blame ammunition. They blame everyone and everything but themselves and the laws they created. None of their laws, old or new, would prevent this from happening again.
The murderer used a semi-automatic rifle. That type of gun was invented 128 years ago. Ammunition is even older. What is new is the political fantasy that helplessness makes citizens safer.
That point of view, so common in California, is not a political accident. "Helpless" citizens turn to the Santa Claus politician who can bestow all things as gifts from the government. When helplessness fails, the politician again proscribes more of the same gun-allowed-zone They prescribe more disarmament each time disarmed citizens are shot.
California politicians never learn because California voters never hold them accountable. The fault is ours because we leave these politicians in office. That means the voters of California can stop mass murder on campus. More dead students are an unacceptable price for politicians failed fantasies.

Thought for the day -- "Isn't it strange that after a bombing, everyone blames the bomber ... but after a shooting, the problem is the Gun ! "
