Blog: It's Time to End Gun-Free Zones

Blog: It's Time to End Gun-Free Zones
Gun-free zones in schools are invitations to psychopaths to commit murder.
I remember my son recently showing me a satirical sign that said, "Attention Criminals, the people in this establishment have been disarmed for your convenience."

....Only Texas allows teachers to carry guns.
How many tragedies have to happen before we do the same?
How many children have to die before we finally allow the law-abiding citizens charged to educate and defend our students to do the latter as well as the former?
...I call the reader's attention to a few simple questions.
How many mass murders have been committed at a gun range or in a gun shop?
How many have been committed in a police station?
The answer is few, if any.
What is it that these locations have that our schools don't?
Simple: a plethora of armed law-abiding individuals.
 If just one person had been armed in Newtown or Aurora, how many lives could have been saved?
