Sadly in the past couple years gun free zones have actually made it easier to enable mass shooting in this country. Gun free zones such as the Orlando Shooting Gay bar, elementary schools and colleges. It is your God given right to protect yourself in any way necessary. To many example in the past such as Nazi Germany in the 1930s where the government took the guns of the people in order to "protect" then from the threat. Even in socialist country's such as Venezuela or Brazil l; crime has sky rocketed and the use of guns by criminals have not gone down. The USSR also took the weapons from its people and proceeded to take the people and kill the people. To say this will never happen here is absurd, the only reason we have the 2nd amendment is to protect us from OUR government and other foreign governments. It is important that we be allowed to protect our selves, if you don't want to carry a gun then don't. However do take it away from the good law abiding citizens who want to.
