Please make the case for "Gun Free Zones".

I mean save for one out the last 30 mass shootings they have all happened in a gun free zone..

How do you not understand these criminals seek out places were they can predate at will and do so uncontested?

Strawman.

"Gun free zones" are irrelevant. The problem is gun accessibility, not gun prohibitions. Mandate universal background and psychological checks. Ban military grade weapons.

No it is not irrelevant.

Why do the pick the same spots over and over again? They never pick a shooting range, they never pick gun stores, they never pick gun shows, they never pick NRA conventions

Gun"accessibility" is a non issue guns are more restricted then have been in the past 50 year.

Universal Background and "psychological" checks.checks violate the 2nd, 4th, 5th, 8th 9th and 10th Amendments to the Bill of Rights.

Bans of semi auto weapons did nothing to reduce crime if anything crime went up during that 10 year period.

They are not "Military grade weapons" just semi autos with cosmetic features that make the firearms more customizable..I just love how much your kind does not know.

But then again never let facts, logic, and reality stop you from limiting the rights of other people.

Try to buy a "military grade weapon", I guarantee you're going to find out you won't be able to. So good luck with that.

Notice I'd like to see on a gun grabbers door. 'Not only is this a gun free zone, we don't lock the door'.

Just put up a sign in your yard pointing to your gun grabber neighbors house stating it to be a gun free zone...

Military grade weapons are already tightly restricted.

Also, I don't recall that there has been a military grade weapon used in a crime for about 20 years....
