Almost 98 Percent of Mass Shootings Take Place in "Gun Free Zones"

The study covers between 1998 and 2018. Are we shocked by this? Crime Prevention Research Center brings us the following. UPDATED: Mass Public Shootings keep occurring in Gun-Free Zones: 97.8% of attacks since 1950

So they aren't really gun free zones, they are defenseless victim zones.

While the first part of the discussion here goes through each mass public shooting from 2009 to 2014 discussed in the Bloomberg report. At the end of the post, we have a response to Everytown’s response to our post.

We have since updated our information up through May 30, 2018.

Gun Free Zones - if all you do is put up a sign - Do. Not. Work. The latest example is the incident in Tampa. See the story that is after the embedded video for the canonical example.

Shocking, Gun Free Zone Sign Didn't Stop This Tampa Gunman as Bouncer Stops Potential Mass Shooting

The classic example of a gun-free-zone paving the way for the bad guy is the tragedy of Nikki and Ben Goeser. This is next-level stalking. Nikki Goeser: My husband was shot dead in a gun-free zone – Now his imprisoned killer sends me love letters

Ben and I used to run a karaoke business in the evenings, and I would usually carry my permitted concealed handgun with me. But, at the time, Tennessee did not allow carrying in restaurants that served alcohol. While I obeyed the law, Ben’s murderer did not. He had no permit to carry, and he brought a gun into a gun-free zone.

In April 2009, the murderer shot my husband seven times in front of 50 witnesses. The whole attack was recorded by the restaurant’s security cameras.

Continuing to harass his victim while he's in prison is felony stalking. Despite that, the Tennessee prison system was giving him early-release credits for good behavior. Nikki Goeser is fighting that, and trying to get new charges brought to keep him in prison. He is clearly a threat to her and people around her.
