Arm citizens to save them

October 24, 2011 

Another mass shooting has occurred in our fine state, thanks to the liberal politicians like our "Governor Moonbeam."

Disarming law-abiding citizens does not deter criminals or whackos one bit. In fact, it has the opposite effect. Disarming law-abiding citizens enables and encourages nut cases because they know no one can stop them. The government has already seen to that. If a few people in the group had been carrying concealed weapons, the villain would not have been able to shoot so many people.

Why do the politicians have armed guards but the rest of the people do not deserve the same right?
