These types of firearm bans provide criminals, terrorists and the mentally unstable the opportunity.

Unbelieveable as it may be, firearms bans are the typical action sought to stop these shootings.  So, how many past mass shootings have occurred in gun free zones?

Clearly, the wrong action is to restrict the law abiding person (who by the way) will obey the law.  We have to start the initiative to address mentally unstalbe perpetrators.  This issue has been the biggest reason for mass shootings in our country so far.

The terrorists are beginning to compete for the top spot in our country!

Gun bans are the wrong action to take and I strongly oppose any legislation that places restrictions on my ability to protect my family and myself in places that usually draw the killers/shooters... the gun free zones are really just killing zones.

Political motivation should not be our guiding light!

Again, I oppose this legislation.
