Better judged by 12 then carried by 6. If just one of the 6 teachers that were killed at Sandy Hook had ignored the "Gun Free Zone" law and had a gun then they'd still be 20 kids alive to celebrate Christmas with their families this morning.
If we take the "Shall Not Infringe" part of the 2nd Amendment seriously then ANY and ALL firearms laws that are on the books should be ignored since they ALL Infringe on our Right to Keep and Bear Arms.
now while i do agree with you about GFZ's, i for one don't and won't advocate breaking the law. i feel like Tack, this comes down to a personal decision that each person has to decide what's best for them. personally i would comply and just avoid anyplace that was a GFZ and leave it at that.
and i agree that the part of the 2nd is violated by any gun control law, ban or restriction. but to ignore any law there is, whether we agree or not is still breaking the law.we have to band together and use the strength of our numbers to make positive changes. and those changes are happening, slowly and surely. look at how many states now have Castle Laws or those similar compared to 15 years ago. look at how many states now have CC as an option compared to 15 years ago. look at just recently how the USSC overturned the rights of gun owners in Illinois. changes for the good of law abiding gun owners is changing, and we have made these in spite of what a few idiots who have wantonly killed innocent people and then to be glorified for their actions in the media. the media. the liberal gun haters and the politicians have tried to overthrow the law abiding gun owners and have been struck down. look at the rising numbers who have joined the NRA and other groups like them. we are making positive steps forward.
