Gun Free Zones Don't Work

The only people that obey gun free zones are law abiding citizens. Criminals will not, and do not, care if there is a "gun free zone" sticker on the door. All this new regulation does is prohibit law abiding citizens from defending themselves if the situation arises. Can you guarantee my Saftey when in your gun free zone?  If not, are you willing to accept the liability of not providing for my Saftey?  By creating gun free zones, you are doing nothing more than providing a group of unarmed citizens for criminals to prey on.  There is no rational person that could possibly think that gun free zones work.  Did it work at Sandy Hook?  Did it work at Virginia Tech?  Did it work in San Bernadino? No  it didn't.  Gun Free Zones don't work, all they do is prevent us law abiding citizens from having the means for self protection.  Don't set us up to be the next location of a mass shooting.  Don't make me the next victim!
