Stop gun-free zones

This is a typical big government, liberal, statist solution to a problem that does not exist.  There have been ZERO shootings in Virginia state buildings.  We also know that all but 2 of the public mass shootings in the last 50+ years have occurred in these gun-free zones which the Governor now seeks to create. 

It is a complete lie to claim that Americans are safer disarmed.  The Governor and his gun control hacks want to create victim disarmament zones where crime and mayhem are invited.  Then, when a criminal or terrorist takes advantage of the Governor’s gun-free zone, the Governor will propose more laws that infringe on our constitutionally protected rights to fix the problem that he created.

All Americans, including those in Virginia, deserve the right to defend themselves from violent people. Especially those violent people who will not follow gun-free regulations, but instead take advantage of the gun-free zones to attack where their victims are disarmed.

Gun-free zones only hurt law abiding citizens.  Chicago is a perfect example, over 400 hundred murders this year where guns are banned.
