Alyssa Milano and Dana Loesch crossed virtual swords earlier this year during the National Rifle Association's annual convention in Dallas, with Milano leading an anti-gun rally in a park near the convention site and Loesch tweaking her for bringing her own armed security.
The two were among the many quickly leaping into the social media fray immediately after Sunday’s shooting at a Jacksonville, Fla. gaming tournament. Even before basic facts such as the suspected gunman’s identity were published, people on opposing sides took to social media to advocate.
The Jacksonville Landing is a gun-free zone. Its code of conduct specifies "Possession of a weapon, even if legally carried (except by law enforcement officers) is absolutely prohibited on Landing property."
Lots of folks are pointing that out on Twitter:
All too often a #GunFreeZone is declared, as if evil cares. The only people obeying these signs are the same law abiding people who would otherwise provide a formidable defense until police arrive. Then after a mass shooting people wonder how. Well that's how. #ConcealedCarryhttps://t.co/cYNuSsHt7T
