School, movie theater shootings not the problem — just that the criminals are too dumb to know that they are gun-free zones.
Extending the premise of “gun-free zones” leads to the following:
- Declare airports and flights “terrorism-free” zones. No more need for TSA.
- Declare all US embassies “terrorism-free” zones. No more hostages.
- Declare the Middle East a “war-free zone”. No more need for peace talks.
- Declare all public places “drug-free zones”. War on drugs, 0ver.
- Declare all schools “bully-free zones”. No need for anti-bullying legislation.
Obviously, this is just the beginning. Why, with this line of thought, there is no problem too large to be solved by creating a “zone”. All problems then “zoned out”.
