Regarding the Oct. 2 editorial “ Troxler takes right stand on State Fair guns”: How many helpless victims does it take to satisfy the liberals’ need to feel superior? Can we name one mass shooting in recent time that was carried out in a place where potential victims were allowed to have the means to resist?
Fact is, those murder magnets called “gun-free zones” have been the sites of murder far too often. Common sense tells us that making good people helpless will not make bad people harmless. It also follows that posting a sign deters only those who are willing to obey the sign and would have been no threat to anybody.
Guns save lives. If agriculture Commissioner Steve Troxler cannot or will not follow the law, then he should be replaced.
