It just occurred to me, on 9/11, nearly all of the victims were in a gun free zone.
The passengers and crew of the aircraft, obviously.
We tend to forget that NYFC is a gigantic gun free zone.
Not that having a gun would have saved a single soul on the ground that day, but since the media is all about pointing out irrelevancies, why shouldn't we?
A gun on any of those four planes in the hands of the crew or a non-terrorist passenger might have saved thousands of lives.
Of course, the terrorists would certainly have gotten carry permits and had guns themselves, but that law abiding people might as well lowers the certainty of their plans considerably.
