Gun-free zones afford make-believe protection from whack-jobs, terrorists and criminals
Let’s put an end to “gun-free” zones
Gun-free zones fail miserably time and time again as every mass public shooting since 1955 has occurred at a gun-free zone except one.
Most recently gun-free zones failed at an elementary school in Connecticut as a crazed individual committed a massacre there.
Let’s face it: Gun-free zones provide only make-believe protection from whack-jobs, terrorists and criminals.
Not only is a gun-free zone’s protection make-believe, but in real-life, it emboldens those who would victimize the innocent and we’ll tell you why: Attackers know there won’t be any meaningful resistance in the form of armed good guys because good guys play by the rules.
It’s time for Americans to end their love affair with gun-free zones and the make-believe protection they provide.
Let’s allow the good guys the option to carry the means with which to thwart violent attack in these locations.
By doing so, we’ll increase the proven deterrence that armed good guys have against those who would terrorize or victimize the innocent.
