New piece at US News: "Gun Restrictions Leave People Vulnerable and Helpless"

My piece at US News starts this way:

When bad things happen with guns, the desire to ban guns is to take away guns is understandable. But doing that can often make problems worse. 
For example, it might seem obvious to protect people by banning guns in areas. But law-abiding citizens, not those intent on committing terrorist acts, obey these bans. Instead of making places safer, disarming law-abiding citizens leaves them as sitting ducks. With just one single exception, every public shooting since at least 1950 in the United States in which more than three people have been killed has taken place where citizens are not allowed to carry guns. 
This isn't random. If it were, . . . .
Right below the phrase "The Arguments" here there is place to vote on how you liked the different pieces in the debate.
