Gun Free Zones and Venues Are Potentially Dangerous!
Gun free zones can create more danger for law-abiding citizens than safety. The Plaza Live Theater in Orlando, for example, was the scene where a promising young singer, Christina Grimmie was shot and killed on June 10, 2016 by perhaps a disturbed fan.
Details about why she was shot aren’t known because the shooter, 27-year-old Kevin James Loibl, killed himself a short time later at the event, but what is clear is that the gun free zone was supposed to protect it’s entertainers and attendees, but their security was sadly inadequate.
Other examples of gun free zones are in airport passenger terminals and even on military bases.
There is some progress for the military with a N.C. Air Force Base allowing military personal to carry their own personal weapons on base, but airport security is still lacking.
Only a few days ago, on January 6, 2017 a passenger from an Air Canada flight allegedly pulled a gun from a checked bag in baggage claim and opened fire on people inside the passenger terminal.
This is what President Elect, Donald Trump wants to correct. He wants to eliminate the gun free zones in America. This is where a majority of shootings have taken place. I have to agree with his thinking and I’m thankful he plans to do something about it.
Gun free zones are the perfect places for gun carrying persons to go when they intend to cause harm. Of course it’s the law abiding citizens who won’t be carrying guns, so they’re easy prey for criminals. This also happens in places like military bases as mentioned, and even schools.
President Elect, Donald Trump Talks About Gun Free Zones
I don’t understand why people in favor of gun control cite incidents to prove their point and only share half the story. They use criminal activity to prove that gun control is needed. Yet they never mention that many innocent people are killed because they can’t defend themselves against the criminals who will always find a way to obtain guns and use them against defenseless, law-abiding persons.
