Stop Me If You've Heard This One Before

Five dead at Northern Illinois University outside Chicago.

Perhaps, if the "Gun-Free Zone" signs had been posted in 167 different languages and dialects.

Using a larger font size.

In bright, vibrant colors.

Bold and underscored.

With pretty pictures.

Because, someone hell-bent of mass murder and suicide really gives a flying you-know-what about the University's feel-good, do nothing, "No Icky Guns Allowed" policy, or the State's feel-good, do-nothing "Guns Are Bad (for Commoners)" gun laws.

Morality can be legislated.

Animals can be reasoned with.

And, the tooth fairy is real.
