Over the past decade, liberals have been pushing to make more locations gun free zones. They have the erroneous belief that gun free zones are safer, as if criminals or crazy, mentally ill people will obey such a designation.
Columbine high school was a gun free zone. Sandy Hook elementary school was a gun free zone. The Aurora, Colorado theater was a gun free zone. The Pulse nightclub in Orland was a gun free zone. The Cameo nightclub in Cincinnati was a gun free zone.
All of these locations experienced a mass shooting.
The Mandalay Bay Resort and Casino in Las Vegas where Paddock brought in over 20 firearms to use in his mass shooting, is also a gun free zone.

History shows that gun free zones are not safer, but more dangerous. They actually become targets for those wanting to victimize others. Just as criminals don’t abide by gun control laws, they don’t abide by gun free zone designations either.
