Apparently Mike Leavitt wants to be known as the most anti-gun governor in Utah history. His pronouncement that the Arkansas schoolyard shooting signals a need to ban even legally permitted weapons from schools makes about as much sense as saying that wet sidewalks cause rain. Governor, don't you read the newspapers, or do you just glance at the headlines? Those two young killers violated a whole flock of restrictive firearms laws that didn't keep them from shooting up the school yard from the cover of woods. They weren't even on the school grounds. Of course, if your agenda is just to make more stupid gun laws, any pretext will do, I suppose. (If you're a liberal Dem-o-crat.)
