Guns don’t kill – gun free zones do
Eagle Rising 0- Onan Coca – 9/20/2013

Even with these gaudy numbers of guns and gun owners, gun violence in America among legal gun owners is statistically insignificant. In fact, the vast majority of gun crime is committed by criminals who carry their weapons illegally. Meanwhile, in America, a gun is 7 times more likely to stop a crime than to commit one.

Consider the recent and most famous instances of mass shootings in the news. All of these rampages took place in areas described as “gun free” zones.

What we've learned about mass shooters is that they are cowards. Many of them choose these unprotected areas because they offer the path of least resistance for the killer.

The honest truth is this. When you couple the fact that so few of our gun crimes are committed by legal gun owners, with the fact that most of these mass shootings happen in gun free zones by mentally imbalanced people… we get a completely different picture than the portrait painted by the liberal media and the Democrat Party.

Murder is always evil. It is always a violent and destructive act that attacks the very fabric of our communities. We must respond, and we must try our best to ensure these things happen less and less in the future. However, we cannot allow the emotion of the moment to overcome our abilities to reason and consider logic. The gun control ideas of the left are a red herring. They create as many problems as they solve. The best answers to violence and public safety come from conservatives who love liberty and value independence.
Don’t let the liberal media mislead you – we are safer with a gun in our hands than with our empty hands in the air begging for mercy.
