    Thumbs down More fodder for the anti-gun folk

    The anti gun press is headlining any shooting that paints a picture that guns are bad.

    Yesterday the radio said this was in the library. He was outside. There has been no report that the shooter was ever inside.

    The anti's are trumping HB 1910 - Delegate BaCote - allows guns to be complete banned in a library.

    There is another of bill pending, that will give the localities the too much leeway -- SB 1053 - Senator Whipple - allows localities to ban guns in any government buildings and grounds.

    So there's a gunman somewhere outside the library, possibly still nearby. He's already shot one of the library's patrons. So the head librarian decides to evacuate the library, pushing the rest of the patrons outside, possibly into the line of fire, then closes the library to keep the books safe!
