This is dedicated to all the innocents from Columbine, Colo., to Clackamas, Ore., to Newtown, Conn., who have died in a "gun-free zone" be it a school, theater, mall or any other open public area.
• Good: Create more and bigger gun-free zones, or ban and seize all guns. On second thought, considering the track record of these two ideas, they fit one definition of insanity: Repeating the same thing and expecting different results.
• Better: Ban gun-free zones. The criminal shooter doesn't obey them and they only make law-abiding citizens unarmed and helpless victims.
• Best: Ban the progressives and liberals who created the gun-free zones, and thus created the helpless victims and the criminal shooter-empowerment zones.
The immutable law of unintended consequences can never be revoked or repealed. Reality is always with us.
