The “Gun-Free Zone” Delusion

Filed under: Uncategorized — Kevin M @ 8:54 am

When are we going to give up on the idea that by banning guns from an area (or in general) we will achieve safety? It’s a nice theory, but it just does not hold up in the real world. Every time some nutter decides to shoot up a bunch of people, he heads straight for the nearest gun-free zone. Schools, churches, restaurants, universities, private employers and now, it seems, army bases all fall into this trap. And it doesn’t work.

So, a question: If the lack of guns equals safety, and free-carry is dangerous, how come there are no reports of mass shootings at gun shows?
