Gun Free Zones are IMMORAL

I find it to be an immoral act of the state to take away the citizens God-given right to self defense.  I can't think of any of these mass shooting/active shooter events that have not taken place in a so-called Gun Free Zone.  The entire concept that a criminal is going to actually pay attention to the rule is ridiculous.  Under what logic would one actively promote that a location is "Gun Free"?  Would you put such a sign up in front of your own home?  Of course not, it would invite a criminal in - just like these gun free zones seem to be doing all over the nation.  I just think this makes Virginians less safe.  Particularly in the times we see today with domestic homegrown terrorist such as San Bernardino.  Imagine if just one of the people in the room/building would have had a concealed firearm and been able to stop those shooters.
