Shocking admission: Percentage of mass murders that happen in ‘Gun Free Zones’

We’ve all seen the signs proclaiming “gun-free zones” ranging from pre-schools to universities. But I must admit, I don’t see how the collective IQs on either campuses are really all that different.

Anyhow, in one whopper of an admission regarding the same gun-free zones, Rep. Thomas Massie (R-KY) claims that 98 percent of all mass shootings in the United States actually in one of those feel-good titled gun-free zones.

Massie said the solution to school shootings is putting more than one armed guard at school or allowing teachers to be armed, adding that “98 percent of mass public shootings happen in a gun free zone.”

“And we’ve labeled all of our schools as gun free zones. We need to take those labels off, and put our kids in that two percent category of being safe, instead of being in that 98 percent vulnerable category,” he said.

In one of the few instances I disagree with the direction taken by President Trump, Rep. Massie strongly disagreed with the president’s stated intent to raise the legal age to purchase semi-automatic rifles to 21.

It’s already illegal for those under 21 to own a handgun, arguably a case of denying to those legally considered adults, that those same adults between the ages of 18-20 cannot exercising their Second Amendment rights to lawfully keep and bear arms, regardless of barrel length or caliber.
