Anybody wanna bet...

...this happened in a gun-free zone?

A longtime employee at a St. Louis power company is reportedly among three dead after he opened fire upon arriving to work Thursday morning.

Timothy Hendron, 51, an active employee at ABB power plant in the north side of St. Louis, reportedly arrived at work at about 6:30 a.m. with a large assault rifle and handgun. Police say the incident began in the parking lot and soon moved into a nearby building.

I'll take that bet. And I will also bet that there will be more handwringing from the antis about the tool this guy used, notwithstanding the fact that he could likely have wreaked as much havoc with just the pistol.
