Once again, Bob Ray Sanders has it wrong.

Another maniac with mental problems decides to murder innocent people and, of course, it’s the guns’ fault. Here we go again with the ban-the-gun mantra.

You can blame the Clinton administration for this. They banned guns from military bases in 1993 with their gun-free-zone malarkey. How stupid is that? Banning weapons on an armed forces base? What part of armed force do you not understand?

In World War II, the Japanese considered invading the United States, but they believed it would be suicidal because they thought that everyone in America was armed.

Would deterrence have prevented the killings in D.C.? Who knows. But if concealed carry were allowed in “gun-free murder zones,” the death toll would no doubt be less.
