Christina Grimmie killed in Gun-free zone

As the picture above shows, the man who fatally shot Christina Grimmie did so in a gun-free zone.  Somehow, despite the ban on weapons, the killer, Kevin James Loibi, was able to get a large knife in addition to two handguns into the concert area.

UPDATE: Tennessee legislature makes major moves to get rid of gun-free zones at public universities and businesses

Army Chief of Staff General Mark Milley says 8 minute response time in mass public shootings is fast enough

Army Chief of Staff General Mark Milley says 8 minute response time in mass public shootings is “adequate” and “pretty quick,” opposes letting soldiers carry weapons on military bases

Here is a video clip of the Army chief of staff testifying on April 7th that it isn’t necessary to arm soldiers on military bases, such as Fort Hood attack, because:

“Eagles of Death Metal” Band Frontman who survived Paris Terrorist attack: “Did Your French Gun-Control Stop a Single Person from dying at Bataclan?”

From the “Eagles of Death Metal” Band’s Frontman

Gun control kind of doesn’t have anything to with it, but if you want to bring it up, I’ll ask you did your French gun control stop a single f*****g person from dying at the Bataclan? And if anyone can answer yes, I’d like to hear it, because I don’t think so.
