Maryland Mall Shooting (That’s Right, For Those Keeping Score At Home: Another Shooting In ANOTHER GUN FREE ZONE)

The moment I heard about the shooting in the Maryland mall, I knew it: another shooting in another gun free zone.

It didn’t take long to determine the “gun free zone” thing.  All I had to do was identify the mall, then find their web page and then look at their “code of conduct” page.

And there it was: “No firearms or illegal weapons.”

Too bad nobody was allowed to have a firearm who was actually INCLINED to obey the damn law.

Wonder if MSNBC or any of the rest of the liberal media will cover the “gun free zone” angle (yeah, probably not).

“Gun free zones” again: Three killed in Columbia, MD Mall [Updated]
Posted by Bob Owens on January 25, 2014 at 12:42 pm


The Howard County Police are reporting via Twitter that:

Call came into 911 around 11:15 a.m. that shots were fired. Police made entry and found three dead, one found near a gun and ammunition.”

We’ll update the story as more information comes in, but the operating assumption at this time appears to be a double murder and suicide in yet another “gun free zone.”

Update: The incident is over. The UK Daily Mail and NBC Washington are both reporting that the shooter used a shotgun, and the Daily Mail  has posted a photo from a twitter user showing what appears to be evidence of a shotgun blast into the wall.


Daily Mail is further claiming that, “A mall employee described the shooter as a Latino or Middle Eastern man.”

I’d keep it firmly in mind that eyewitness statements are notoriously inaccurate.

Liberals are truly stupid people who will just not ever learn because their worldview obliterates any capacity for learning.  But when you criminalize guns or ban them, the only people who obey the laws are the law-abiding.


Every single mass shooting we have had in this country over the last several years – every single one – occurred in a “gun free zone” where the only people who had guns were the evil people.  Thanks entirely to Democrats.

Gun-free zones have been the most popular response to previous mass killings. But many law-enforcement officials say they are actually counterproductive. “Guns are already banned in schools. That is why the shootings happen in schools. A school is a ‘helpless-victim zone,’” says Richard Mack, a former Arizona sheriff. “Preventing any adult at a school from having access to a firearm eliminates any chance the killer can be stopped in time to prevent a rampage,” Jim Kouri, the public-information officer of the National Association of Chiefs of Police, told me earlier this year at the time of the Aurora, Colo., Batman-movie shooting. Indeed, there have been many instances — from the high-school shooting by Luke Woodham in Mississippi, to the New Life Church shooting in Colorado Springs, Colo. — where a killer has been stopped after someone got a gun from a parked car or elsewhere and confronted the shooter.

Economists John Lott and William Landes conducted a groundbreaking study in 1999, and found that a common theme of mass shootings is that they occur in places where guns are banned and killers know everyone will be unarmed, such as shopping malls and schools.


“Disarming law-abiding citizens leaves them as sitting ducks,” Lott told me. “A couple hundred people were in the Cinemark Theater when the killer arrived. There is an extremely high probability that one or more of them would have had a legal concealed handgun with him if they had not been banned.”

Lott offers a final damning statistic: “With just one single exception, the attack on congresswoman Gabrielle Giffords in Tucson in 2011, every public shooting since at least 1950 in the U.S. in which more than three people have been killed has taken place where citizens are not allowed to carry guns.”

If you want to know all the most dangerous cities in America, just go visit the places that have the most restrictive gun laws.  YOU go to the places like liberal Chicago or liberal Detroit.  I’m sure not going to be one of the defenseless sheep praying to Obama to protect me.

    Thank you, I was just looking for this information. I’m not surprised but am disappointed. Since logic won’t be observed, lawsuits against property owners who fail in their obligation to completely ensure the safety of their visitors are the only way to change this situation.

    As if someone, or some 10 people with ccw permits, trying to get away from the situation, would have made things any worse.

    I’ve never actually understood the logic behind the gun-free zones. However, I do understand liberals, and their twisted philosophy would imply that the American citizen should be entirely dependent on government. So, if you are at a mall or movie theater and some deranged lunatic opens fire, you should just remain calm and wait for the police to get there and they will take care of the situation. To actually try and save yourself or others, which in most cases would require blowing the madman to kingdom come, is absolutely not allowed.

    In a world where law abiding citizens are allowed and even encouraged to pack heat, I seriously doubt these shootings would be much of a problem. And in the event that a madman took aim, an armed citizen would have the chance to cut him down long before the police showed up.

    I remember reading an article somewhere where a Detroit policeman stated that he was a strong proponent of concealed carry and ordinary, law-abiding citizens owning fire arms, saying that in many instances the police just can not get there in time. Of course, in Detroit, they may not get there at all. In the mean time, good luck with that tire iron or baseball bat!

    Well… nobody has anything to say on topic so…

    WASHINGTON (AP) — A federal bankruptcy judge has approved Lehman Brothers Holdings Inc.’s settlement with Fannie Mae, allowing the mortgage finance giant to recover about $537 million for its claim against the estate of the failed Wall Street bank over soured mortgage securities. Judge James Peck made the ruling Wednesday. The settlement values at about $2.15 billion Fannie’s claim over home loans and mortgage securities it bought from Lehman before the financial crisis. Under rules of Lehman’s bankruptcy proceeding, Washington-based Fannie will receive about 25 percent of that. Fannie and sibling Freddie Mac were rescued by the government in a $187 billion bailout in 2008 after they were hit by massive losses on high-risk mortgages. Lehman’s bankruptcy in September 2008 was the biggest in U.S. history and helped set off the financial crisis.

    dog walker,

    Oh, I get it now. So THAT’S why that turd shot up the mall in Maryland.

    It’s as good of a reason as any, I suppose. The government under liberals pretty much writes and applies all the “laws” so that they win and everybody else loses.

  6. Michael Eden Says:


    Logic will NEVER be observed when liberals are around.

    Based on your version of logic, we should disarm our police and our military. After all, having armed guys on our side can only make a violent situation worse, right???

    If some psycho was shooting at me, I’d be praying that somebody with a gun would respond. But I’m not like you, I have a reason to want to continue living as opposed to being a “victim” like liberals love being so much.

  7. Michael Eden Says:


    It appears that you need to get a load of shinge’s comment.

    Your comment appears later but I didn’t get to allowing shinge’s (first time comments must be approved) until now.

    So you spake as a prophet about how liberals “think” when it comes to this guy, didn’t you?

    Liberals are just amazing. And it doesn’t matter that every dictator in every hellhole wanted the exact same thing that liberals want.

  8. Michael Eden Says:

    Thanks for that.
