“Guns are already banned in schools. That is why the shootings
happen in schools. A school is a ‘helpless-victim zone,’” says Richard
Mack, a former Arizona sheriff. [/quote]
P.S. I will say that since these are such rare occurrences, the data can’t really say if the lack of guns is a causal factor. But since we are only dealing with ‘feelings’ here, and not objective data the above quote should suffice.
We can say that most of the recent spate of such events have occurred in places where the chances of encountering someone with a gun is slight.
