Are "Gun Free Zones" in schools and government buildings at good idea ?

"Gun free" zones are an invitation to come and shoot.

Gun free zones are the scariest places on earth.

Does the term Soft Target mean anything to lawmakers?

Apparently not. They haven't been very effective.

Really depends on who has the gun.

Schools already are gun-free. And knife free. And drug free. And axe, machete, samurai, sword, and mace free.

Did that help at Sandy Hook ?

If someone is truly determined to commit an actual mass murder crime like that, then nothing will stop them. However, I do think it stops stupid middle and high schoolers from bringing a knife in, waving it around to show it off, and then an accident

But it prevents school administrators and teachers from defending themselves when a determined shooter enters the school ? The only way to stop a bad guy with a gun is with a good guy with a gun !

We have armed police officers in our school by the doors. I just think the ban is good when applied to students (minors)

A ban for minors shouldn't have an effect either way since you have to be 21 to own a handgun and 18 to own a shotgun or rifle

I think the idea that if you outlaw guns, only the outlaws will have guns applies to "gun free zones"...

The school in Sandy Hook,CT was a gun free zone ... and the shooter faced no resistance ...
