Did I forget?

To mention that while the gun banners are screeching for new laws and bans that this latest shooting has once again taken place in one of their vaunted "gun free" zones?

I for one, would like to see a different terminology used when referring to places that law abiding citizens cannot carry self defense tools.  I think we should begin calling them what they actually are:  Mass Murder Empowerment Zones or MMEZ.

Over the last 20+ years, with the exception of the Gabrielle Giffords shooting, every mass shooting in the United States has occurred in a "Gun Free" Zone.  Every one.  Yes kiddies, Ft Hood is an MMEP.  Concealed carry for self defense is prohibited on military bases and indeed on most federal properties unless you're an only one.

I would also ask businesses that do not permit employees to carry self defense tools while at work to at least be honest about it when hiring new employees.  You could handle it during the interview process by simply saying, "if we are robbed, we expect you to just cooperate with the criminal.  We know that sometimes, these criminals go ahead and shoot their victims anyway but, we're ok with that".  You could also just go ahead and warn the rest of us by posting a sign on your business that says something like "We do not believe in a citizen's right to self defense and we're ok with it if you get killed while working/shopping here because we don't think guns should be permitted anywhere".

For those of my readers who either live in Michigan or visit Michigan, I refer you to the links on the sidebar to your right to the link for the Do Not Patronize List of the Michigan Coalition for Responsible Gun Owners.  The MCRGO is a great organization and has developed an up to date listing of the MMEZ's in Michigan.

Here We Go Again

There was another senseless shooting today.  An Elementary School in CT.  The reports I have received say 27 dead.  Horrible, senseless and of course, the gun ban crowd is already dancing in the blood

The calls for a new "assault weapon" ban are already coming from the frothing mouths of the gun ban groups and their idiot followers none of them even aware that "assault weapon" was made up by the gun ban crowd to help scare people....oops, I mean sheeple into joining the cause.

Would you believe that the anti gun crazies are even attacking Bushmaster on it's facebook page?  How fucking deluded are these people?  Yes, apparently a MSR was found in a car nearby but handguns were found with the shooter's body (apparently he assumed room temperature after shooting himself).  That info is from USA Today.  Please wander over to Bushmaster's Facebook page and show them a little love.  They should not be held any more responsible for the inappropriate use of their product than an automobile manufacturer should be held for the inappropriate use of theirs.

All that having been said, Warthog Control sends it's prayers to the friends and families affected by this tragic event.
