With guns again under discussion, one question never seems to be asked by some. Is there already too much gun control? All over Illinois and other places the sign is on the door, "gun free zone," announcing unarmed people inside a building. Wherever school tragedies happen, teachers and other staff people are unarmed and so announced publicly. Recent events come to memory such as the attempted murder of US Congressmen as they played baseball. None were killed by the over-41-year-old gunman, as he was stopped by police ALREADY ON THE SCENE AND ARMED. Voices raised against arming school staff reveal a loss of common sense, preferring to abandon a decisive advantage in protecting the school. In Colorado, school staff volunteer to train and arm to defend their young on the scene. They probably remember Columbine's shoot out years ago and have made the right decision. Some children attend private schools where the commandments and the cross can be displayed. So far no government control. So far. Imagine children reading the commandments in school, seeing value in "Thou shalt not murder" as a commandment from God.
