Guns in a gun-free zone

Bullet holes in the shattered glass doors of the military recruiting center in Chattanooga, Tennessee are a chilling reminder of the slaughter that happened there yesterday.

Notice the sign on the door.  Bullet holes ironically surround the sign announcing that guns are prohibited in the facilities, emphasized by a slash through the gun.

Ah, that was inside the building.  But what about outside?  Would an alleged Muslim terrorist, intent on killing the hated enemy, really be deterred by a sign?  By a law banning guns?  Murder?  No!  And so the shooter, allegedly fasting as per the dictates of the Muslim observance of Ramadan, knew he had nothing to fear from America's unarmed finest – military personnel and recruits – as he blasted away outside.

As the cliché has it, when guns are outlawed, only outlaws will have guns.
