Facts: Mass Shootings.
What does the evidence say about "gun free zones"?
According to the Crime Prevention Research Center, "gun free zones" (areas where guns are prohibited) have been the target of more than 98% of all mass shootings. This staggering number is why such designated areas are often referred to as "soft targets," meaning unprotected and vulnerable.
"According to the Crime Prevention Research Center, only a little more than 1% of mass public shootings since 1950 have occurred in places that were not considered to be a gun-free zone," reports The Blaze. "In fact, as Crime Prevention Research Center President John Lott Jr. noted in October 2015, only two mass shootings in the U.S. since 1950 have occurred in an area where citizens were not prohibited from carrying a gun."
Former Vice President Joe Biden, a Democrat, introduced the Gun-Free School Zones Act (GFSZA) to the U.S. Senate in 1990, and it was signed into law by then-President George H.W. Bush, a Republican. The act was clearly proposed with the intent to prevent mass shootings at such precious areas as schools. But the act, as the statistic proves, did not result in the desired outcome.
The Coalition To End Gun Free Zones
is dedicated to the proposition that all people have a natural right to defend themselves and any laws made by government to infringe on that right is unconstitutional and dangerous to the long term prosperity and liberty of the people. Our right to defend our life, liberty and property is a natural right and the reason we create government is to protect these rights, among others.
When government strays from its path, it is the duty of the people to correct it. The Coalition to End Gun Free Zones is a specific movement to restore the stolen rights of people who work at or near a school. The idea of disarming law abiding citizens is abhorrent and should be most fiercely opposed. Support the Coalition to End Gun Free Zones and help eliminate these hunting grounds for the mentally and morally deranged.
