Another mass killing in a gun-free zone

I don’t understand it, but even free Texas prohibits carrying firearms in a church:

(b) A license holder commits an offense if the license holder intentionally, knowingly, or recklessly carries a handgun regardless of whether the handgun is concealed or carried in a shoulder or belt holster, on or about the license holder’s person:
(6) on the premises of a church, synagogue, or other established place of religious worship.
Yep, today’s killing followed the usual pattern for gun-free zones. Providentially, one gun owner eventually showed up with his own rifle to stop the killing. Again, the “first responder” is an armed citizen, as is often the case. But imagine if several of the church members were armed. The cowardly killer would have turned and run, just like he did when finally challenged by an armed citizen.
Of course, the Democrats are calling for gun control. They should be repealing every existing gun-free, victim-rich zone so that the evil, deranged predators will face a hail of return fire when they attack. Arm up and be ready!
