FRED THOMPSON: “Some people think that power should exist only at the top, and everybody else should rely on ‘the authorities’ for protection. . . . Whenever I’ve seen one of those ‘Gun-free Zone’ signs, especially outside of a school filled with our youngest and most vulnerable citizens, I’ve always wondered exactly who these signs are directed at. Obviously, they don’t mean much to the sort of man who murdered 32 people just a few days ago.”
