Almost all mass shootings take place where Americans have been disarmed

Today’s shooting at a Navy Yard in Washington DC constitutes yet another to have taken place within a gun free zone. With several people dead and more injured, questions over the disarming of citizens are once again sure to be raised.

As is the case at most military bases, personnel are forbidden from carrying their own personal firearms. Under a ruling enacted by The Clinton Administration, there must be “a credible and specific threat against [Department of the Army] personnel [exist] in that region” before military personnel “may be authorized to carry firearms for personal protection.”

This was the reason that the Fort Hood shooter Major Nidal Malik Hasan was able to go on a rampage for a full ten minutes in 2009, without being stopped.

Indeed, the entirety of Washington DC is well on the way to becoming a gun free zone, a fact that means only criminals like the shooter in this latest incident are able to carry arms.

Any deranged shooter looking for defenseless victims need only look to a gun free zone, knowing that it will be populated by defenseless victims that can provide no resistance.

John Lott, an economist and gun rights advocate who authored the book “More Guns, Less Crime,” recently discovered that: “With just one single exception, the attack on congresswoman Gabrielle Giffords in Tucson in 2011, every public shooting since at least 1950 in the U.S. in which more than three people have been killed has taken place where citizens are not allowed to carry guns.”

Recent drills and experiments, following the mass shootings in Connecticut and Colorado, have also confirmed that gun free zones do more to enable would be killers.

With police forces unable to respond quickly enough, people in gun free zones are sitting ducks for would be mass murders, yet the proposed “solution” provided by lawmakers is always to water down the Second Amendment and disarm more law abiding citizens.
