WI – GUN CONTROL – This Mayor Actually Said What Gun-Control Activists Advocate For

After someone shot eight people in a local mall, the mayor of Wauwatosa, Wis., Dennis McBride (D), actually said, “Guns have no place in shopping malls or other places in which crowds of people gather. Mayfair (mall) has a strict no-gun policy. If the shooter had complied with that policy, no one would have been hurt yesterday.” This comment went viral, as a lot of people mocked the mayor’s naiveté. But, in his defense, this mayor was merely saying out loud what anti-Second Amendment groups and politicians often advocate for, as they often argue that “no-gun zones” somehow save lives. They argue this even though most mass-murderers seem to purposely choose to commit their atrocities in such zones. Police described the incident as “the result of an altercation between two groups of people,” but have stopped short of saying it was gang-related. At least four of the victims were simply bystanders to the fight. As this was being written, all of the victims were recovering, and police had announced a 15-year-old boy had been arrested as the alleged perpetrator. The mall’s “strict” policy says firearms and illegal weapons are prohibited, and that “guests who do not act responsibly may be asked to leave.” (There’s no word on whether mall officials asked the shooter to leave for not acting responsibly.) Mayor McBride later tried to clarify his remarks by saying, “There are people who break rules and laws. I see a deeper problem in society. Children shouldn’t have guns. Mayfair has a strict no-gun policy. People should not bring guns to malls.”   [full article]
