For the life of me, I can’t figure out why any business would post a “gun-free zone” sign at their entrance. Recently, I went into a store here in Georgia, and there was a sign next to the door that proudly proclaimed that they didn’t allow any guns on their premises. I felt a slight tinge of fear as I walked in. I didn’t have a gun with me, and I knew if a robber or murderer wanted to commit a crime, he’d look for the gun-free zone signs. And if I were in that store while the criminal was there ordering people around with his gun, we’d all be sitting ducks. I know, I know. I shouldn’t have even walked in. Next time, I’ll remember that. We shouldn’t patronize businesses that attempt to overrule the 2nd Amendment. And I would at least want a fighting chance if some criminal decided to try something stupid in a store I was in.
The Seattle mayor Mike McGinn is encouraging local businesses there to post gun-free zone signs as a way to deter criminals…or, something. In a press release, he said:
“We are here to support businesses that do not wish to have guns on their premises. The police department regularly enforces trespass laws when a visitor to a business violates that business’s rules. We will continue to do so, and I thank these businesses for standing up for the safety of their customers.”
The “safety of their customers?!” Are you kidding? More like, the safety of criminals. “I thank these businesses for standing up for the safety of criminals.” That’s what he meant to say, because that’s all they’re doing by posting these signs at their businesses. They’re telling criminals, “Hey, if you want to commit armed robbery or murder, please come in our store, and no one will be allowed to defend themselves against you.”
