Comment On The Heller Decision

One quick comment based on a quote from a CNN article
Elilta "Lily" Habtu, however, told the high court that she supports the handgun ban, and tighter gun control in general. Habtu was in a Virginia Tech classroom in April 2007 when fellow student Seung-Hui Cho burst in and began shooting. She survived bullets to the head and arm.

"There has to be tighter gun control; we can't let another Virginia Tech to happen," she told the court. "And we're just not doing it; we're sitting around; we're doing nothing. We let the opportunity arise for more massacres."

Virginia Tech had a total ban on guns. It was a gun free zone as are the overwhelming majority of places that experience tragedies such as this. Let me say that again, the overwhelming majorities of mass murders caused by guns happen in "gun free zones". It is not a coincidence. It is because gun control laws take guns out of the hands of law abiding citizens, thus making them unable to defend themselves in a V.T. type of situation. The criminals know nobody will be able to shoot back and therefore gun free zones are nothing more than consequence free firing ranges for those intent on killing large numbers of people.

So what law exactly does M. Habtu think would have stopped the V.T. massacre?
