Opposition to 'gun free' zones grows with killing sprees in them

NY Times:

Pursuing a Right to Be Armed on Campus

Weapons are banned from most public colleges, but pro-gun forces have made gains in a handful of states. David Burnett, 27, speaks for a group opposing the bans.
The most dangerous place to be when there is an active shooter is a "gun free zone."  The mad men who want to engage in mass murder take advantage of gun free zones knowing they have time ti kill dozens while victims wait for police to arrive.  If they were confronted by someone with a concealed carry weapon it would stop the killing much sooner and save lives.

Those who oppose the gun free zone are faced with having to persuade with a counter intuitive argument.  But statistics do show that conceal carry permits lead to less gun violence.
