Skip to comments.Commentary: How gun-free zones invite mass shootings

This doesnt happen anywhere else on the planet, said Californias Gov.-elect Gavin Newsom. We stand alone in the world in the number of mass shootings," echoed U.S. Rep. Carolyn Maloney, D-N.Y. These were typical comments after an alleged shooter murdered 12 people in Borderline Bar & Grill in Thousand Oaks, Calif.
People have been acting for a long time like the United States is the worlds hotbed of mass public shootings. Following a 2015 mass shooting during his administration, President Barack Obama declared: The one thing we do know is that we have a pattern now of mass shootings in this country that has no parallel anywhere else in the world. . . . .
But America doesnt lead the world in mass public shootings. Were not even close. Just last month, a school shooting in Crimea, Russia, claimed 20 lives and wounded 65 others. But Americans usually dont hear about such events.

Well that should stop all the anti 2nd talk going around right? Oh, duh. I forgot about liblogic.
CA already has the gun laws that they keep telling us we need everywhere else and they did not stop this shooting.
Gun laws don’t work because criminals ignore laws.
It’s quite the paradox actually; laws only affecting the law-abiding folks who aren’t inclined to break laws in the first place.
Look at the potential mass shootings, where someone with a gun (usually a cop) was there to put the perp down. Just the other day in a Chicago hospital, for example. One of the officers was killed, along with 2 workers in the ER. Had there not been armed police nearby how many more might he have killed?
It is obvious you need a shooter to take out a shooter. You’d be a fool to deny this. The real debate is that they only want cops to do it; they’d leave everyone at the mercy of government.
And not just when it comes to guns. Which is ironic because they’d be the first to tell you that government is not merciful. That’s not its job.
The only thing that stops a bad guy with a gun is a good guy with a gun.
Even stupid lefties should have figured this out by now....
They know that. They figured that out a long time ago.
That's why they want to disarm the good guys.
The bad guys are THEIR people.
Oh sure. Typical pro 2-A guy. Resorts to pulling out the Logic Card.
Whats next? Common sense?
Democrats really do have a mental disorder. Their response to every issue defies logic, and results in making the problem worse. And they do it over and over again.
Then there’s stuff like this:
Shouldn’t we drop the ‘Gun Free School Zones’ now? These gun free zones are getting more people killed than normal. It might have sounded good when Joe Biden suggested it, but it has proved a disaster. We would be better off if guns were allowed in schools and other places.
