*******GUN-FREE ZONES******* Criminals with illegally possessed weapons, and in many cases stolen ones, pay no attention to Gun-Free zones. Who abides? Law abiding licensed gun owners, who fear loss of their permits. These individuals include RETIRED STATE TROOPERS AND POLICE OFFICERS, AND FORMER OFFICERS who obey the law. How insane is it to prohibit former and retired officers from carrying guns in any venue? ********I will not patronize any business that posts "Gun-free zone."

I won't patronize any business that posts "Gun Free Zone". That's an invitation to disaster. Come on down and kill everyone in sight. Come on in and rob all the customers at gunpoint. We won't respond because we don't believe in having guns on site. Wow. How dumb can you get? Gun Free Zone is just another title for Target Rich Environment.

Let's not forget all the retired Veterans and current servicemembers which number in the 100s of thousands.... Why prohibit them either? For that matter, why prohibit anyone who has had arms training?

Why? It's because they are patriots who would/will fight to defend our Country, and our "government" can't risk having them in our midst. They qualify as a source of leadership at the base of those that WILL fight against those serpents that are poisoning us from inside.
Everyone, this is happening ON OUR WATCH! If nothing else, we've got to fight back for the sakes of our offspring,

In the aftermath of the horrific Newtown, Conn., school massacre, Americans from all parts of the political spectrum agree that we need to pay more attention to mental health issues. Public death threats and incitements to violence must be taken seriously. The incendiary witch hunt against law-abiding, peaceful gun owners is neither noble nor effective. It's just plain insane.

Over the past week, I've witnessed a disturbing outbreak of off-the-rails hatred toward gun owners and Second Amendment groups. Whatever your views on guns, we can all agree: The Newtown gunman was a monster who slaughtered his own mother, five heroic educators...
