Faulty Reasoning, As Usual

"In many states across the country, legislation that allows concealed carry, a license which grants an individual the ability to covertly carry a gun on them, has already been passed. The addition of guns on campuses has caused students, staff, faculty and parents to worry, especially after mass school shootings such as Virginia Tech and Sandy Hook." (Badger Herald) What they seem to uniformly IGNORE is that the very shootings they mention were carried out by people with ILLEGAL guns, not by people who LEGALLY carried their guns. That's the "fault" in their reasoning. It's all about LEGAL gun carriers, whom they suspect of "running wild" if they have a gun, while IGNORING those carried by ILLEGAL gun owners, most of whom are gang members and/or criminals--a redundancy, there).
