    So called “ gun free zones” only work when criminals and thugs suddn;y decide to obey the law ( for a change).
    “Gun free zones” should be called “criminal empowerment zones”. The hood rats know that 99.9% o licensed concealed carry holders obey the law and anyone inside the zone is defenseless and easy meat. Like shooting fish in a barrel.
    The criminals count on no one being able to defend them self’s.
    Oddly, it’s the very people who claim “to care about the children” are the same people who created criminal empowerment zones.
    Another interesting tid-bit. A juvenile thug knows that shooting someone in the foot or legs is less likely to charged with a full blown felony because shooting in the legs is not considered attempted murder or great bodily harm.
    The charges go away when the thug turns 18. That’s by gang bangers send little kids to o their dirty work.
