    So we have a no gun sign, and a convicted felon, who illegally was in possession of a firearm. Obviously the killer had confidence, that no one would be armed in plant, that has two hundred employees. Of course, the Marxist democrats will say pass another useless gun control law.

    Victims who suffer incidents like this where they are prohibited from defending themselves should sue the owner for putting them in that situation.
