‘Gun Free Zones’ are danger zones

Written by 

To the Editor:

Legislation has created a zone where the only people protected by a “gun free zone” are the evil criminals that come there to break the law. No one can stop them.

Good people are forbidden to carry a gun to protect themselves.

The criminal targets a gun free zone to break the law knowing the good people will not be able to stop him. Progressive legislation creates the problem, and then acts like more bad legislation will prevent it next time. Logic dictates that lawbreakers do not obey the laws.

Gun free zones are dangerous. We can trust the American people to protect our children and ourselves.
