The fallacy of gun-free zones

According to the Crime Prevention Research Center, some 92% of all mass shootings from January, 2009 to July, 2014 occurred in gun-free zones. This should tell you everything you need to know about gun-free zones. This also provides us with a contrast between liberalism and conservatism.

Liberals tell us that we need more gun-free zones. If they had their way, the entire nation would be a gun-free zone. The problem, they say, is that there aren’t enough of them.

Conservatives tend to take the common-sense approach, notice that statistic, quickly conclude that gun-free zones don’t work, and that we should do away with them. A shooter opening fire in a gun-free zone typically isn’t stopped until someone shows up with — guess what? — another gun!
