Criminals LOVE gun free zones. Why? Because they know that law-abiding citizens will actually obey the law and not carry their firearms there because it is either against the law or against the wishes of the establishment they are entering.
Of course, criminals never obey the laws so gun free zones are like ‘free victims’ all lined up to a killer.
One town in Idaho is making it clear they are not open for business for criminals.
Greenleaf, population 846, doesn’t maintain a police force of its own but did in 2006 pass a citywide resolution asking that each household acquire a gunand ammunition and seek training in the use of firearms. Now a city leader and area businesses have purchased five street signs advertising the city is not a gun free zone.
“Myself, as a city councilman, and apparently the rest of the City Council agrees that gun-free zones are targets,” saidCity Councilman Steven Jett. “If you look at the shootings that have happened, they are gun-free zones. Schools, malls and recently churches. I want people to know that this is not a gun-free zone, and we are not a target.”
The council is waiting for input from the Idaho Transportation Department before erecting the signage. While the state has the signs under consideration, U.S. Sen. Mike Crapo, a Republican with a history of introducing pro-gun legislation in Washington, visited a Greenleaf town meeting and expressed his support for the message behind the signs.
What a concept – individuals allowed to freely protect themselves against criminals.
How dare this Idaho Town do that!
The gun control crowd must be going spastic. They never want law-abiding citizens to protect themselves!
