One might think that, if Canada had CCW that perhaps one or more people could have taken this guy out before it went this far.

Gunman Kills One, Wounds 19 in Shooting Spree at Montreal College

Particularly interesting is the last paragraphs that say:

"Canada's worst mass shooting also happened in Montreal. Gunman Marc Lapine killed 14 women at the Ecole Polytechnic on Dec. 6, 1989, before shooting himself.

The 25-year-old Lapine roamed the halls of the school firing a rifle, specifically targeting women whom he claimed in a suicide note had ruined his life. Nine other women and four men were wounded.

That shooting spurred efforts for tighter gun laws and greater awareness of societal violence â€" particularly domestic abuse. Canada's tighter gun law was achieved mainly as the results of efforts by survivors and relatives of the victims."

Sound like those "tighter gun laws" helped a whole lot.

Georgia has CCW, but we would be in the same boat, since it would be a felony for any of the students or teachers to carry a firearm.

This isn't Utah!

(Or Colorado, or Oregon, or Alabama, or Virginia, or . . .)
