Vin Suprynowicz asks “How many more will die in ‘gun-free’ zones before the media start asking why? ”
Police have identified Robert A. Hawkins, 19, as the assailant who killed eight people with a semi-automatic rifle (not an assault rifle) at the Westroads Mall in Omaha Dec. 5.
Chalk up eight more deaths to “gun control.”
The shooting was at least the fourth at an American mall or shopping center so far this year, including one in February in Salt Lake City.
Once again, the killer chose a “gun-free” zone.
Gun control amounts to victim disarmament. It is insane. If suicidal killers, like young Robert Hawkins, are not dissuaded by statutes prohibiting murder, there is no reason they would be deterred by ordinances, or policies, prohibiting the carrying of weapons.
