Sorry, CT, but your school was gun free "for the children" and that condition made sure that there was no way to defend against criminals. You feared criminals with guns and you wanted your children to be safe. Exposing your children where they cannot be protected just is not the way to do it. It didn't work.
You know what? I'm afraid of criminals with guns, too. That is why I carry a gun myself. I carry to defend myself and my loved ones. I don't expect anyone to do that for me. I put my loved ones in a safe place behind me where I can protect them, not in a place where I cannot protect them.
Criminals don't love your children. They won't protect them in a gun free zone just because another law is passed.
Laws don't compel the lawless.
