UT Shooter Shows Effectivness of Gun-Free Zone

Yesterday’s incident with a gunman on the University of Texas campus proves unequivocally that rules declaring certain places “gun-free zones” do not work.

GUN+FREE+ZONEAll those restrictions do is disarm law-abiding people. Gun-free zones are shooting galleries for homicidal maniacs who are assured that their victims won’t be shooting back.

Exactly how is it that the Bill of Rights is prohibited on college campuses?

Here’s the best part of the story:

John Woods, a UT graduate student who organized an anti-gun rally last year, disagreed. He said that having more guns on campus wouldn’t improve security.

“If there were multiple students running around with guns, it would’ve made the police’s job a lot harder this morning,” Woods said Tuesday. He was a student at Virginia Tech University in 2007 when a gunman killed 32 people, including Woods’ girlfriend.

So Woods has been on two campuses where guns are prohibited and yet a nut with a gun showed up armed for bear. And he’s not seeing a pattern.
