A robber was asked why he robbed banks and answered because that’s where the money was. So why does mass murder happen in gun-free zones? Because that’s where the unarmed victims are.
We must remember that a firearm is a tool and is the instrument of human action.
The cause of human actions are the beliefs of the actors. The mass slaughters of the last century didn’t happen because of the weapons. The Holocaust wasn’t caused by a supply of insecticide, the National Socialists were acting on their beliefs. The murderer in Oregon didn’t kill innocent people because he had a gun, he killed them because of his beliefs.
Of course the nomenklatura are whining about the gun because the last thing they want is to judged on their beliefs.
