Safest place to shoot someone with little chance of return fire.

What is comes down to; is the best person to protect yourself in any situation; is you. And Gun-free zone increase the chances that an aggressor with a weapon will be met with little to no resistance. In other-words a target rich environment.

But it is a "gun free zone." How did the killer bring a gun in?? Didn't he read the signs?

Oh please, there was a guy who shot up Dallas PD just a year ago . It isnt about it being a safe space, it is about it being a place that is connected to an individual.


When people shoot up schools, it is usually because they attended that school, not because it is an easy target.

The point still remains that their odds of one of their victims defending themselves is greatly reduced in gun free zones.

Odd how it is usually a place without an armed guard or cop isn't it. SD Unified now has a cop on every campus at least some part of the day.

Yes, because criminals and murderers abide by laws/rules.

Chicago has some of the strictest gun laws in the country and look how well that turned out for them.
