Sikh Temple of Wisconsin was another gun-free zone

From Fox News:
The president of the Sikh Temple of Wisconsin had only a butter knife on hand, which he used to fight the gunman. He was killed, but his heroic actions were credited for slowing the shooter. Guns were not allowed in the Sikh Temple of Wisconsin. 
“No guns [were] allowed in the temple,” Kulbir Singh, an attendee of the Sikh Temple of Wisconsin, told FoxNews.com. “Everyone knows that it’s not allowed, anywhere in the temple.” . . .

Once again, a "gun free" zone is where senseless shooting takes place. And, once again, the 'lame stream media' conveniently fail to mention. They are petrified of the truth getting out.

Thanks, TMH, though this is a news article by my son at Fox News.

Sikhism does not believe in violence unless all other means to protect an innocent person have failed, hence the Kirpan, which is strictly a defense weapon.

The President of the Temple, with butter knife in hand, did exactly what he was supposed to do: Defend the innocent against the racist idiot who attacked those in the Temple.

It truly is sad that there are those whom willingly ignore truth, history, and human nature when it comes to respecting the rights of others. Those who wish to disarm others do so in order to impose control on those whom wish to be free.

Truth is the ultimate weapon against tyrants, hence the main reason that truth is the first victim when these events occur.
