Another random shooting at FedEx

Some unnamed employee went in and started shooting at coworkers. He wounded six before he killed himself. There were two important facts about this. First, in spite of what will be said, he didn’t use an ‘Assault rifle’. He used a shotgun.

Second, and we could have predicted this, the FedEx facility was a gun-free zone so the employees were not able to defend themselves from the madman.

According to CNN,

A FedEx package handler went on a shooting rampage early Tuesday at his workplace in suburban Atlanta, wounding six people — three of them critically — before turning the gun on himself, officials said.

“That individual is deceased here at the scene,” Cobb County Police Department Sgt. Dana Pierce told reporters. Police were sweeping the area with search dogs to ensure no secondary devices had been planted.

Pierce would not release the name of the employee, whose body was found near a shotgun. “That was the only weapon that he had at that time,” Pierce said. “As far as I know, he worked at this location.”

The liberals will undoubtedly scream for more gun laws and more restrictions on assault weapons. I don’t know what to say. “Gun Free” zones don’t work.   I used to say that “only the law abiding citizens will heed the “no gun sign” and the criminals will have guns. Well, now I can say that the country has declined enough that I also personally ignore this myself. Movie theatres, public places, malls, all say gun free zone. I continue to carry concealed. Until they start having metal detectors, I will continue to carry. I would much rather answer some legal questions than to become a yet another victim of senseless violence who will be forgotten ten minutes after the five o’clock news is over.
