    In other words, there should be NO place that is a government-mandated, protection zone for criminals. At the moment, portions of every city block in every state in the country is like this. I'd be willing to bet that the "wildlife corridor" theory works just as well with wolves and goblins as it does deer.

    Proposed: That every politician be mandated to complete a four-week survival course in the wilds of his/her state (ie, on the streets of his/her fairest city) without a weapon of any kind, annually, as part of one's civic duty to understand the risks of the average person. Perhaps then the value of a decent weapon and the right to self-defense would be clear.
    Your best weapon is your brain. Don't leave home without it.
    Thoughts: Justifiable self defense (A.O.J.).
    Explain: How does disarming victims reduce the number of victims?

    It'd be good to keep in mind this is an AG opinion not law. The AG's opinion may or may not hold up in a court of law.

    It's an opinion, but really the law is black and white.

    Here's a news pic of the guy that started it all:

    (from wikipedia)

    The Bath School disaster was a series of bombings in Bath Township, Michigan, USA, on May 18, 1927, which killed 45 people and injured 58. Most of the victims were children in second to sixth grades attending the Bath Consolidated School. The bombings constituted the deadliest act of mass murder in a school in U.S. history, claiming more than three times as many victims as the Columbine High School massacre.

    The perpetrator was school board member Andrew Kehoe, who was upset by a property tax that had been levied to fund the construction of the school building. He blamed the additional tax for financial hardships which led to foreclosure proceedings against his farm. These events apparently provoked Kehoe to plan his attack.

    On the morning of May 18, Kehoe first killed his wife and then set his farm buildings on fire. As fire fighters arrived at the farm, an explosion devastated the north wing of the school building, killing many of the people inside. Kehoe used a detonator to ignite dynamite and hundreds of pounds of pyrotol which he had secretly planted inside the school over the course of many months. As rescuers started gathering at the school, Kehoe drove up, stopped, and detonated a bomb inside his shrapnel-filled vehicle, killing himself and the school superintendent and killing and injuring several others. During the rescue efforts, searchers discovered an additional 500 pounds (230 kg) of unexploded dynamite and pyrotol planted throughout the basement of the school's south wing.
