    I think more accurate; Most mass shooting take place where people gather in large numbers. They generally occur in places of business. Most business, to my knowledge, don't allow their employees to carry concealed weapons to work even if the state allows.

    I was going to mention this. Most places the Constitution isn't even a factor. Essentially, insurance companies tell people they can't bring guns to work. These types of incidents are relatively rare.

    true-places where there are lots of people who are disarmed--schools are popular as are malls. Some places with lots of people that don't have active shooters murdering people

    The Grand American Trapshoot-6,000 plus people carrying 12 g shotguns.

    Gun shows

    The National Rifle and Pistol Championships in Camp Perry Ohio

    NASCAR races

    Police academies and "hot" army bases.

    the mass murders at Ft Hood were in an area where 99% of the soldiers were not permitted to carry weapons.

    I am curious, I have never heard of this being all that common. I know the gun shop and shooting range that I frequent has all its employees armed and I believe that is a requirement by the insurance company. Funny how no one has tried a robbery there during times the place is likely to be occupied

    Most employers have a weapons policy. Employers could find themselves being sued if something happened after they allowed everyone to bring firearms to work. Their legal advice would be to stay away from that policy and I'm sure insurance companies would refuse to insure them or make them pay substantially for it.

    This is exactly right. Even though I work with law enforcement, we would NEVER be allowed to carry weapons in our building. THis is true for 99.9% of corporate America.

    when Ohio passed its law there was a provision that places of business were not liable for either not allowing people to carry who then are assaulted or for letting people carry who shoot a bystander. Our firearms coalition handed out cards telling anti gun businesses that we wouldn't patronize them. I'd say most of the businesses allow guns in OHio but some big office buildings do not

    Do they allow people to carry in places that serve alcohol? Do they serve alcohol in Ohio?

    Keep it small and keep it quiet, no one will know.
    I was discovering that life just simply isn't fair and bask in the unsung glory of knowing that each obstacle overcome along the way only adds to the satisfaction in the end. Nothing great, after all, was ever accomplished by anyone sulking in his or her misery.

    I thought they were talking about guns, not your penis.

    Sorry it had to be done.
