My commentary on this is a few days late, however I wanted to point out that in the Portland, Oregon mall shooting, again was a gun free zone... and guess what, a bad guy brought a firearm into this idiotic gun free zone and opened up... had law-abiding citizens been allowed by the mall to carry personal protection in the form of a firearm then there is a chance this could have stopped sooner. BANNING FIREARMS IN A PLACE OF EMPLOYMENT, BUSINESS, SCHOOL, HOSPITAL, RELIGIOUS CENTER etc... does NOT stop gun violence. CRIMINALS DON'T CARE ABOUT LAWS BY THEIR NATURE, NOR DO THEY CARE ABOUT YOUR SIGNAGE!
First, I urge everyone to go to http://www.gunfacts.info/ before believing any anti-firearm propaganda.
Second, I'd like to recommend the following books to both firearm owners and those that may have questions or concerns about firearms. Please I urge you to educate yourself before joining the anti-gun movement.
- The 7 Things You Must Know Before You Draw Your Gun
- In the Gravest Extreme: The Role of the Firearm in Personal Protection
- The Truth About Self Protection
- Gun-Proof Your Children! / Massad Ayoob's Handgun Primer
And if this makes you want to start carrying to protect yourself and your family, I urge you to seek proper training in your area as well as reading the book Gun Laws By State - Reciprocity and Gun Laws Quick Reference Guide - 2014 Edition
