In a story that will come as a surprise to nobody who’s paying attention, Azana Salon & Spa — that’s the place where three people were killed and four others injured last week in Wisconsin — had a “No guns allowed” sign on its front door.
In accordance with the owner’s wishes, that sign prevented law-abiding people from carrying their concealed firearms with them when they entered the place.
What it didn’t do: stop a murderer. Or allow anyone there to effectively defend themselves from the unexpected violence.
Maybe if someone there had been armed, that someone would still be alive, along with several others. Or maybe not. But shouldn’t they have had a chance?
