Westroads Mall, a gun free zone
A shooter and criminal will ignore the gun free zone signs, while law abiding permit holders will leave their guns at home.
Another mall shooting happened in February at the Trolley Square Mall in Utah, this mall too was a gun free zone, the attack was stopped by an off duty police officer who ignored the sign and thank goodness had a gun.
I was reading here that research has been showing for years that multiple victim public shootings keep occurring in places where guns are banned.
Any madman/woman can illegally buy a gun and be walking in malls, schools and on the street, wouldn't you feel safer if more law abiding citizens with permits had their guns with them too?
Are these gun free zones disarming the victims, while giving the shooter less to fear? I think so.
I would feel safer with a gun in my purse, it may not save me, but I would at least have a better chance.
