Put yourself in a criminals position. You feel like shooting and killing a bunch of people, and you want to be met with as little opposition as possible. If you go to a place that allows concealed carry, theres a risk that someone could take you out before you start shooting, and thats a risk you dont want to take.
Naturally, youd go to a place that has heavy restrictions on gun-carriers. Thatll pretty much guarantee that no one will be able to fight back, and youd be able to shoot and kill as many as you want. And then youd get your 15 minutes of fame when the media give you nonstop coverage. So, probably more than 15 minutes, but, you know, its just an expression.
The subject of gun-free zones is up again, because of the shooting that took place at Ft. Hood the other day. Many have already commented that the shooting occurred in a gun-free zone. Most of them do for reasons described above.

These mass murderers were all mentally defective (and evil), but not so mentally defective that they couldn’t discern the difference between gun-free zones and others.
They’re just about all liberals too.
The left needs a certain level of violence in this country. Theyre willing to accept a certain level of killing to advance their political agenda.
Concerning Constitutional soil, I wonder how many perps were dispatched on the second of potentially many kills.
>> The left needs a certain level of violence in this country.
No doubt. That’s why the Left neglects the mentally ill.
So you’re fairly safe unless you are in a “gun free” zone. One can see the usual unintended consequences of liberal thinking at work here.
...and almost every mass shooting ends on its own with no police confrontation with the perpetrator.
But, you do not need a firearm because we have law enforcement.
The US is 3rd in murders thru out the world! BUT, if you take out chicago, detroit washington dc and New Orleans, the US is 4th from the BOTTOM for murders.
Believe it or not, those 4 cities also have the toughest gun control laws in the US.
THAT is a very interesting statement. Do you have supporting references?
If the business has a no legal CCL entry sighn I take my money down the road. I go no were without my .40 cal. and two full mags.
Didnt you read the title?
I've seen the numbers for this before. The data is in the UCR .
If you take out blacks and hispanics (which is difficult, because the government purposefully puts whites and hispanics together so you can't easily see what the realcrime rates among whites is, you'll find that this country is more law-abiding in amost all respects than just about any other nation on the planet. I think the swiss beat us out in some areas.
No, I just found it on Facebook and am not computer savvy enough to know how to trace it down.
