As I sit here tonight in central KY, I think about the horrible tragedy that happened in Orlando fifty people killed and 53 more injured. Instead of us pulling together like we should to help the families that this tragedy has effected. I see hatred and bigotry coming from a lot of people
One news source has people that were happy about the tragedy. While other news outlets call for more gun control. In my opinion gun free zones do nothing but create target rich environments for these lunatics. In Aurora, Co the shooter passed two movie theaters that allowed concealed carry to get to the one that didn’t. The guy from the Orlando shooting targeted a gun free zone only two people in the building had guns and one was them shot first. Had other bar patrons been armed this would have gone down differently.
I am a firm believer that everyone should serve two years in one of the military branches and learn how properly use a firearm. All of the mass shooting have taken place in gun free zones. You do not see these lunatics walking into places where people are armed and ready to shoot back. There have been a few that have tried and it ended horribly.
My family and I avoid gun free zones because those places generally have more crime than areas that allow open or concealed carry. These type of attacks are carried out by lunatics that will stop at nothing to accomplish what they have set out to do regardless of the weapon they use to do it. Timothy McVeigh used fertilizer and diesel fuel in Oklahoma city. The Boston Marathon bombing was done with propane tanks with shrapnel attached. There have multiple stabbing incidents by crazed knife wielding lunatics. Had someone been armed and ready to defend those that are around them then things might go differently.
The crime rates in areas that have gun free zones is higher than in areas that have people that conceal carry or open carry. The simple fact remains if you want to keep your family safe seek proper training with firearms and stay away from gun free zones.
STAY ARMED AND VIGILANT MY FRIENDS AND KEEP THE FAMILIES OF THE VICTIMS IN ORLANDO IN YOUR HEARTS AND PRAYERS.
