Texans are watching to see if colleges follow the letter and spirit of the new campus-carry law.
Yet another so-called “Gun Free Zone” a/k/a “Defenseless Victim Zone” drove home the lesson that criminals by definition do not obey the law. Anyone who claims that a “no guns” sign will prevent a murderer from entering the location to take innocent lives is either a liar or so mentally unstable as to be incapable of handling their own affairs.
No clear answer, but evidence does exist.
I'm certainly no expert on the impact of violent movies, music and video games on the propensity of a person to commit acts of violence. Like many folks, for years I scoffed at the idea that there was a cause and effect relationship between violent movies and violent acts. I still believe that there is no link between violent movies and violent acts except in rare occasions when a person is already prone to violence and the movies feed their fantasies. I base this on articles written by mental health professionals.
Texas Gun Sense lied about Umpqua Community College’s “No guns” policy
What do Texas Gun Sense, Moms Demand Action, Mayors Against Illegal Guns and other Bloomberg-funded anti-gun, anti-Second Amendment groups have in common? Lying and deception are their modus operandi. In some ways it is understandable since the facts do not support their agenda, but one would have hoped that honesty and integrity would have been of greater value than a political goal.
