Breaking: Gun-Free Zones Do Not Decrease Gun Violence

Will Donald Trump win the 2024 election?

 

While conservatives have long understood that gun violence is on the rise in gun-free zones, the liberal media is just starting to catch on that excessive gun restrictions turn civilians into sitting ducks. Because the thing is, bad guys don’t follow laws.

Breitbart News reports:

On December 3, The Washington Post reported that gun crime has been on the decline for about 20 years, except for high-profile shootings in gun-free zones; WaPo claims those shootings are on the increase. According to WaPo, “In 1993, there were seven homicides by firearm for every 100,000 Americans. … By 2013, that figure had fallen by nearly half, to 3.6 [per 100,000].”

Breitbart News previously pointed to this decline and explained it correlated with a massive increase in privately owned firearms over the same period of time. For example, Congressional Research Service showed that the number of privately owned firearms increased from 192 million in 1994 to 310 million in 2009. And record background checks under Obama make it easy to see how tens of millions more privately owned guns have found their way into Americans’ hands since 2009.

So gun ownership increased for 20 years, but “gun homicides” decreased–except in gun free zones.

Meanwhile, California Senator Barbara Boxer insists that gun laws are working in her home state. Guns don’t cause gun violence, and gun bans aren’t going to stop gun violence. Bad people cause gun violence. Mentally disturbed people cause gun violence. Islamic extremism causes gun violence.

Progressives can keep their laws- bring back common sense.
