Told that the State Capitol Police wanted to hold “active shooter” training for the legislature and its staff, Rep. Kim Norton decided to introduce a bill repealing last year’s law allowing law-abiding carry permittees to have their legally-carried firearms in the Capitol complex.
And the logic was…
If law-abiding citizens can’t bring guns to the capitol, criminals won’t shoot anyone.
Just like nobody sells crack, drives over the speed limit or after too much to drink, or robs liquor stores any more; because they are laws against each.
Norton is wrong, by the way; at least 18 states allow law-abiding citizens to carry their legal firearms in the state Capitols in one way or another.
That’s the reason so many Real Americans have such a hard time taking gun-grabbers seriously; they’re not serious.
