(Author’s Note) – On Thursday January 26, Donald Trump was speaking in Philadelphia at a meeting of Republican lawmakers and he noted violent crime rates in some of the major American cities are out of control. In particular Donald singled out Chicago, saying “What the Hell is happening in Chicago?”
Well Donald I can tell you the difference between say Chicago and its crime rate and cities like Houston, Salt Lake City or Oklahoma City, is the right to keep and bear arms.
These cities and many others are helping America experience a large downturn in violent crime which has gone down every year since 1994, reaching 1978 levels in 2014, according to the FBI. These cities allow some form of concealed carry by permit or Constitutional carry, in accordance with the Supreme Law of the land.
It is to the politically created reality which touts the benefits of disarming the citizen to order reduce crime that I speak to now, because, as you know and all men of reason know, There is No Such Thing as a Gun Free Zone.
Gun-free zones are a magnet for those who want to kill many people quickly. Even the most ardent gun control advocate would never put “Gun-Free Zone” signs on their home. Let’s stop finally putting them elsewhere. – John Lott Jr.
Theorem: There are NO GUN FREE ZONES
“Gun Free Zones” are bounded regions where law abiding people are not allowed to be armed – formally being disarmed before entering. Gun Free Zones in Public Spaces (GFZPS) are a violation of the Constitution for the United States, violate many State Constitutions, and, more importantly, violate Natural Law.
