Georgia officials said the suspected gunman who opened fire Tuesday morning at a FedEx facility injuring six was found dead by an apparent self-inflicted gunshot wound, MyFoxAtlanta.com reported.
The gunman was described as a package handler to the facility and he carried an assault rifle, knife and bullets strapped across his chest ‘like Rambo,’ according to a witness.
The usual suspects will try to blame this on the recently passed amendment to Georgia’s gun control laws, which liberalized where those legally permitted to carry firearms can do so. However, this liberalization did not end employers right to exclude from their property legal gun carriers, and I’m quite sure that FedEx was therefore a gun-free zone.
If I’m wrong, somebody will no doubt tell me. But I doubt that I am.
UPDATE: I’m not:

While details continue to emerge, one picture should remain seared in the minds of those in the media and across the country — the “Gun Free Zone” signs posted right on the front of the FedEx building.
What a surprise.
