The Charleston, South Carolina church massacre took place in a “gun-free” zone

In South Carolina, law abiding citizens with a concealed carry permit are allowed to carry their legal, concealed handguns in public.

However, South Carolina Code Ann.§ 23-31-215 prohibits them from carrying their guns in “churches or other religious sanctuaries.”

This “gun-free” zone did not prevent Dylann Storm Roof from murdering nine innocent people, but it did prevent those innocent people from being allowed to defend themselves.

One of the survivors claims that Roof stopped shooting to reload five different times. If just one other person in that church had had a gun, they could have stopped him. But self defense is illegal in churches in South Carolina, so there was no one with a gun to stop him.

The presence or absence of an armed, law abiding citizen can be the difference between the Charlie Hebdo massaacre in France, where 12 people were murdered,  and the Curtis Culwell Center attack in Texas, where zero people were murdered. Both incidents happened earlier this year, and both involved armed Msulim terrorists who tried to murder people for drawing pictures of Muhammad. Those two incidents were pretty much identical, except in the first incident, 12 people were murdered, and in the second incident, zero people were murdered, because an armed, law abiding citizen prevented such a massacre. (Although one of the people who was murdered in the French incident was a police officer, he was actually unarmed.)

If any supporters of more gun control think I am wrong about this comparison – if you have some other explanation for why 12 people were murdered in the first incident while zero people were murdered in the second incident – please explain it, because I would like to hear it.

Even the biggest supporters of gun control admit that guns can be used for self defense. For example, I know that Barack Obama is a huge supporter of gun control, because when he was a state Senator in Illinois, he voted against allowing people in their own homes to use guns to protect themselves and their families from rapists and murderers. However, I also know that Obama admits that guns can be used for self defense, because as U.S. President, he signed a bill that provides armed guards to himself and his wife for the rest of the lives. Also, after a petition at called for turning the White House into a “gun-free” zone, Obama rejected the proposal.

Likewise, other gun control hypocrites who are protected by armed guards include Michael Moore and Rosie O’Donnell.

Since even the biggest supporters of “gun-free” zones make exceptions for certain “important” people, I don’t see why people who are “less important” don’t deserve to be allowed to have the same kind of protection.

    I am not normally one that sticks his nose in other peoples religious beliefs but this time I am.
    Once before did I complain about a religious thing and that was when the soldiers burned all the Muslim Bibles, Korans, did I go ballistic.
    That was in another country and I really could not say that much.
    But THIS, sorry Dan, I don’t know your religious beliefs and frankly it is none of my business but, this really pissed me off to no end.
    Here, a group of Christians opened their Bible study to this little bastard and he rewards them by trying to kill them all off succeeding to do it with 9. Sorry Dan but that is where I draw the line.
    I am a firm believer in the second amendment and am a Christian, or try to be.
    This kid needs to be taught, and there are politicians that want blood LITERALLY, that you don’t go into the house of God and just kill someone because you just don’t happen to like the color of their skin…I am willing to believe that the neo-nazi’s of America are having meetings to get the money for this kids defense.
    Dan I am sorry for the offensive language but serious it really upsets me that this type of thing is allowed to happen.
    The only thing this kids managed to accomplish was to just give Obama another soapbox for his anti-gun thing.

      Constitution Believer, nothing that you said is offensive.

      I am Jewish by birth, and agnostic by choice.

      I agree with you that this scumbag needs to be taught a lesson.

      Agreed Const Believer. Spot on!

    Bravo! I could not have said it better. Trouble is Liberalism is a religion and they wont be confused by the facts.

  3. Terry replied:

    “BRAVO” Dan & Constitution Believer. I couldn’t say it any better.

  4. Terry replied:

    I will have to say, I can understand Roof’s motives for his actions. His accusations are true.
    However, killing Christians in church was NOT the answer. He should have gone to a New Black Panther rally, or took out some of the rioting burners & looters. And there are some higher profile targets that wouldn’t be missed.
    If you are going to throw your life away, do it for the right reason.

    • danfromsquirrelhill replied:

      Terry, no, his accusations were not correct. And there is never any reason for killing innocent people.

      • Terry replied:

        His accusations ARE correct.Do you see what is going on out there ?
        And I agree “There is no reason for killing innocent people.” That’s why I offered those alternatives.
        I can see I was mistaken about your blog, Dan. It’s just another PC, puff & run, don’t offend anybody, blog.
        I’ll just mosey along.

    You are all so filled with hate. How sad.

    • Terry replied:

      You should be too, George.
      What is sad is how much I am going to miss Our Country.

      • Perry replied:

        I am with you on this one Terry.

    Because Law Enforcement Don’t enforce gun laws doesn’t make Concealed Carry holders Law Abiding Citizens. Concealed Carry holders are entitled to enter churches with the pastors permission ( never enforced). They are also entitled to enter your home (must notify you they are caring-also not enforced) and have the element of surprise. What happens when the Stand Your Ground /Concealed Cary intrudes on the armed citizen (ME) illegally carries both a rifle and a large caliber handgun and looses his temper and threatens and starts to draw his firearm provoking the Homeowner to exercises his Second Amendment/Castle Doctrine right. The Sheriff’s investigate the home owner with pointing and presenting causing him to spend $3,500 in legal fees just for defending himself in his own home.
