Gun-free zones are where all these mass killings are taking place. How long will it be before this totally failed experiment in gun control stops killing our children? That is the correct question.

If the teachers were armed and the culture of our schools taught children and teachers alike to take care of and protect themselves (instead of hoping the government will take care of them) how many of these wackos would be able to do this?

If the politicians really believed gun-free zones worked there would not be any difference in security between the schools our children go to and the courthouses and legislative chambers the government uses. If the politicians know gun-free zones don’t work and further that recent history has proven these zones to lure maniacs bent on mass murder. then what is the real agenda here?
