Restrictions both by the state and the U.S. Post Office prevented people from having effective defensive tools available when a woman went postal yesterday. Six killed, one wounded:
GOLETA, Calif. — A female ex-postal worker opened fire at a mail processing plant, killing six people and critically wounding another before committing suicide, authorities said early today.
Deputies responding to a call of shots fired about 9:15 p.m. Monday found two people dead outside the plant.
Two wounded women were located inside and were taken to Santa Barbara Cottage Hospital. One died and the other was listed in critical condition early today with a gunshot wound to the head.
Nearly five hours later, deputies found four additional bodies, including one believed to be the female shooter, Santa Barbara County Sheriff Jim Anderson said. The shooter, who was not identified, died of an apparent self-inflicted gunshot wound, he said.
They just need a bigger “Gun Free Zone” sign, because the shooter obviously didn’t see the one they already had in place. Postal workers need to be trained to point to the sign any time they are fired upon, so the shooter will know to stop.
The role of the police? – take pictures, count the bullet holes, help clean out the bodies, write a 1,000 page report, clamor for more gun control.
Role of the Second Amendment? Null and Void.
Punishment for those legislators who nullified it? None.
