    Default Another Gun-Free Zone and Innocence Taken

    Here we go again..... wait for it: More Gun Safety as VA Governor suggested recently. No less, a special session to address this latest tragedy.

    The shooter apparently was known by employees and perhaps management and the article suggests he might have had some social, mental or psychological issues.

    ”The shooter who murdered 12 people in a Virginia Beach municipal building on May 31 was enough of a concern to at least one fellow city employee that she considered bringing a firearm to work to protect herself the day of the shooting.

    Kate Nixon was a city engineer who worked with the shooter.

    So on the night of May 30, Nixon had discussed with her husband, Jason, “whether or not she should take a pistol and hide it in her handbag,” Martingayle said. She decided against it because of a city policy that prevents employees from bringing weapons to work.

    If Nixon had been caught at work with the firearm, she likely would have lost her job. She was one of those murdered during the shooting.

    In any case, as with so many employers both public and private, it was city policy that employees remain unarmed while at work.

    There’s no way of knowing whether Nixon, had she taken her pistol to work that day, could have saved her own life or those of others. What’s clear is that, with everyone disarmed by policy, the shooter had no opposition at all, gunning down defenseless victims until police finally forced their way into the building.”

    Like it has been said many times in this forum:
