And Again

I have been only a small voice in the ever growing mob that understands that laws that restrict or abolish the right of a law abiding citizen to carry a weapon into a particular place just make safe working environments for criminals. Here we go again, in Florida, where a teacher was shot outside a school in what appears to be an attempted armed robbery.

People, take a look at all of the mass shootings in the last 10 years or so. You know what all of them have in common? They all took place in a "gun free zone". Yep, all those laws restricting gun carry sure do help don't they? ** cue cricket chirps**

Well, don't they?

Washington D.C. Law abiding citizens can't have guns. They are the murder capital of the U.S. Violent crime is skyrocketing.

Britan, gun ban. Parents are dressing their children in Kevlar School uniforms. Yep, look like it's working just fine. Violent crime is on the rise.

Australia, gun ban. Violent crime is skyrocketing.

Everywhere that guns have been outlawed, the outlaws have guns and are actively preying on the unarmed. This has to stop.

Remember the Tacoma Mall shooting of two years ago? How about Salt Lake City's Trolley Square shooting in February? Certainly nobody can claim ignorance of April's Virginia Tech massacre, or a string of public and private school shootings that dates back more than a dozen years.
The common denominator in every one of these deplorable crimes is that all of them happened in gun-free zones.
When was the last time you heard of a mass shooting at a gun store or a gun show, both places where firearms outnumber the people, and where there are doubtless a majority of armed citizens present?
Has anyone ever heard of a massacre at a gun range, where it is guaranteed everyone has a loaded firearm?

Doesn't that make sense to you? Elections are coming, don't you think it's time to vote out the idiots that pass these laws? We've given them a fair chance, it just doesn't work.

Here in Michigan, there's a group called the Michigan Coalition for Responsible Gun Owners and they actually have a business card on their website that you can hand to managers at businesses that don't allow guns informing them of why you are taking your business to a competitor that is 2nd Amendment friendly. We should all do this, everyday, everywhere. Start telling these people that we are all a hell of a lot safer when law abiding citizens carry. Don't forget to speak out when some gooney law enforcement person makes a dim witted comment about how "the officers never know who is in the car they pull over and they wouldn't be safe if Joe Average might have a gun". What a crock, they don't know who they're pulling over now. Joe Average is NOT going to turn into a raving felonious lunatic just because he's carrying a legal concealed pistol you moron.

The misguided misanthropes who foster gun-free zones have a paranoid distrust of their fellow citizens that can only be a severe manifestation of social bigotry.
They dislike firearms and are terrified of the people who own them - and for all the wrong reasons. Armed, law-abiding citizens - especially those who have gone through the hoops of obtaining carry licenses - are statistically the least likely to ever break a law.
Yet, all data to the contrary, these gun control fanatics hold fast to the perpetuation of gun-free zones as a symbol, when it is clear that such places are nothing more than risk-free environments for criminals and lunatics.

Have you ever seen anything as true as this is? Yet the gun banners are so busy distorting the truth and adding 19 year olds in with the "dead child" statistics that they can't be bothered to actually look at the real truth. No gun ban has ever stopped a criminal from robbing and shooting someone. They're criminals asshole, criminals don't obey the law to begin with, what the hell makes you think they'll pay attention to one more?

Look, this is America. This nation was founded by armed citizens. Stop trying to remove our heritage. Stop trying to abrogate our rights. Stop being the domestic enemy I swore to protect the constitution from.
