Ditto to all of the above.

"Gun Free Zones" are only "gun free" to those willing to obey the law. In Alabama it is a misdemeanor to violate a GFZ, while firing into an occupied dwelling or building (or vehicle) is a felony whether anyone is hit or not. Murder, attempted murder, armed robbery & assault with a deadly weapon are all felonies as well.

Do the legislators who pass these idiotic laws actually believe that someone whose planning to commit one or more felonies is the slightest bit concerned about committing a misdemeanor in the process?

^ That was a rhetorical question not really meant to be answered by members of the FTF choir.

^ Personaly I think of all gun laws in this exact same light. If a thug is going to shoot you he is going to shoot you. If you take away my legal right to have a gun I am then unarmed while he will still be armed because [U]he[U] is a [U]thug[U]. All that gun laws do is take the guns out of the hands of people who follow the the law. If some one is going to rob you or shoot you they do not care about the law and will do so no matter what the law says.

Wait. Ya'll didn't realize that the mere words "Gun Free Zone" erects a magic barrier that repels nasty, evil people who would otherwise be free to do anything they wish?

My God people! What are you thinking?? It's for the children!

Overall I feel they are a waste of time and nothing more than a fell good, nanny state load of BS. No one intent on causing mayhem is going to give a damn about a gun free zone, all they do is announce to the bad guy that no resistance will be encountered and they can do whatever they please. Many of the headline acts of mass murder in the last decade have occurred in so-called gun free zones.
I wonder if people who broke into my house in broad daylight were thinking about that. For some reason I had been thinkin my house should be safe from this kinda thing because Im across the street from a highschool and on a corner.

But on that same point i know of several other people in my situation have been put up on charges for the exact same thing including my uncle. Now these were out in california and not in Texas. What do yall think about the "gun free zone"? I think it BS if Im in my home, transporting the fire arm or in my truck its my right to have it.
I'm not real fond of them my self but I hear that these guys absolutely love them. In fact I do believe that gun free zones are far more preferred over any other.

There are a few places that make sense (i.e. courtrooms where witnesses/defendants are vulnerable and security checks are in place) BUT criminals would be a lot less likely to rob a bank or shoot in a mall if they knew the other customers could be armed. The criminals don't care to follow the laws and the innocent bystanders who follow the law are the ones put at risk. Seems backward to me.
