Omaha Mall Shooting Occurred at "Gun-Free Zone"

I know this is not so much of a "spiritual" issue (or maybe it is), but I felt I should post this very interesting article from FoxNews on the mall shooting in Nebraska. Makes me want to go out and get a concealed weapon permit right away.


"...despite the massive news coverage, none of the media coverage, at least by 10 a.m. Thursday, mentioned this central fact: Yet another attack occurred in a gun-free zone.

Surely, with all the reporters who appear at these crime scenes and seemingly interview virtually everyone there, why didn’t one simply mention the signs that ban guns from the premises?

Nebraska allows people to carry permitted concealed handguns, but it allows property owners, such as the Westroads Mall, to post signs banning permit holders from legally carrying guns on their property."

I'm really curious as to why you think this "maybe" a spiritual issue.

The shootings are a tragedy for sure, but I don't want gun-owners' rights to trump property-owners' rights. If a property owner doesn't want anyone besides police officers or hired security bringing in concealed weapons that should be his right, I think.

Shoppers and gun owners have the choice not to patronize places like this mall if they think their life is in danger by not being allowed to carry in a weapon.
