92% of mass shootings occur in Gun Free Zones

Gun free zones = victim zones. Don't take away the rights of Virginians to protect themselves. If a person is planning a robbery, murder or mass shooting they are not going to be stopped by a "No Guns" sign. They can, and are, stopped by an armed challenger. Look at the stats, Average victims in a mass shooting stopped by the police, 14. The average "intended" mass shooting stopped by an armed citizen, 2. I say intended because two victims does not qualify it as a mass shooting. It has been proven that as soon as they are challenged, by anyone, they flee or kill them selves. Stop using tragidies to further an agenda and do something to actually saves lives. Bottom line is, Guns Save Lives.
