Shannon Watts, potential congressional candidate from Colorado and Bloomberg’s gift that keeps on giving, put up this tweet yesterday about the murders in Plano, Texas over the weekend. She is never one to let a family tragedy go to waste.
Majority of mass shootings in America are related to domestic violence, take place in private residences, and most victims are women. https://t.co/FwzWcAqYeQ

Watts and her minions have consistently argued against arming teachers and in favor of more gun free zones. Their argument is that a gun free zone is safer which people reading this blog know only creates a target rich environment for psychopaths.
Her whole supposed rationale for keeping schools, university campuses, and other public places “gun free” is to prevent mass shootings and “gun violence” (sic). Her Moms Demand Action was supposedly created in response to the murders in Newtown. (Actually, I think it was merely a vehicle to reinvent her moribund career.)
But if she is correct in stating that the majority of mass shootings take place in private residences, doesn’t that shoot down her rationale for more supposed gun free zones? Private residences will never be legally gun free. It will only be on an ad hoc basis at the whims of the individual residents. The Heller decision saw to that.
Shannon Watts is nothing if not consistently inconsistent. Her only consistencies seem to be guns are bad (unless they are used to protect me), “hey, look at me”, and how can I make a family tragedy into a PR gain for me.
