Why does Missouri demand defenselessness for mass transit passengers?

A regular passenger of mass transit apparently only trusts people with guns if they are paid to carry them:
Nancy Kinney of St. Louis, a regular MetroLink and bus rider, said she would be less inclined to ride if she knew other riders could be carrying handguns. "I mean it's different if they're a security guard or a police officer," she said. "But John Doe? No."
A "John Doe" is, apparently, the opposite of an "Only One," and thus not to be trusted with the means to defend his or her life while on public transportation.

Those who mandate and enforce defenselessness on others are accessories to the rape/murder/severe injury of anyone who pays the price for obeying such laws. [More]
That's today's St. Louis Gun Rights Examiner. Please give it a look, and tell a friend.

Oh, and if you could spare a digg?

Also in today's column is a long overdue review of Philip Mulivor's excellent resource for gun rights advocates, "Proclaiming Liberty: What Patriots and Heroes Really Said About the Right to Keep and Bear Arms."

Excerpt from my review:
Don't get caught in an embarrassing (and argument weakening) false quotation. The other side of the coin, of course, is that the reader will likely find some genuine quotes with which he or she had been unfamiliar previously.

Author Philip Mulivor masterfully sifts through the history to establish the legitimacy (or illegitmacy) of historical quotes cited in gun rights debates.
