A Picture Is Worth A Thousand Words

This was the scene following the mass workplace shooting at the Federal Express warehouse in Kennesaw, Ga. this past April 29, 2014.  LOTS of police walking around counting the dead.  No, they didn't kill or capture the killer, he killed himself.

Kennesaw, Georgia has one of the lowest crime rates in the nation for a city of it's size.  In the past that city's leaders were catching a lot of heat for a rather controversial law they enacted, a law which REQUIRES every homeowner to HAVE a firearm in their home.  As the heading of this post says, a picture is worth a thousand words.

Even citizens of a town like Kennesaw are helpless when they enter a "Gun Free Zone."  I have argued for years that it is unconstitutional as  well as immoral to require employees to disarm prior to earning their living.  What is it about a job which nullifies ones right to survival?  Of the "Gun Free Zones" which attract the most tragedy,  I would place the workplace ahead of schools in numbers of incidents and death, based on my unscientific observations.

Common sense gun laws are an oxymoron.
