Here we go again. Another mass murder of defenseless victims in another idiotic, feel-good “gun-free zone.” Just like Columbine, Aurora, Fort Hood, Sandy Hook, the Charleston church killings and 92 percent of all mass killing sprees in the U.S., all of these killings showcase the liberal idiocy of a “gun-free zone.” News flash for all of you anti-self-defense twits out there: Criminals do not obey the laws. The only thing a “gun-free zone” sign achieves is telling the murderers where they can find disarmed, helpless victims. Hey, let’s make the White House a gun-free zone. That way, the Secret Service can hang up their guns.
From now on, any governmental or private entity that wants to establish a “gun-free zone” should be required to have armed security guards and body scanners at all entrances to that facility, just like we have at our county courthouses. If government agencies, schools, colleges or private parties want to deny me the right to effective self-defense, they must be required to be responsible for my safety.
