On June 12, the Washington Post ran a column by their editorial board claiming “no place is safe” in America without more gun control.

They justified this claim by citing six gun-free zones–Troutdale, Newtown, Columbine, Blacksburg, Seattle, and the Washington, D.C. Yard–in which guns were used to commit crimes.

They cited three other crimes that happened in areas other than gun-free zones–Tucson, Las Vegas, Santa Barbara–but dismissed the obvious associated with those crimes by citing President Obama’s statement that America “does not have a monopoly on crazy people.”
