(TheLastPatriotNews.com) – While many towns, counties, and states across the United States of America are increasingly embracing the gun rights guaranteed to Americans and protected from government interference by the 2nd Amendment to the Constitution of the United States of America, others, politically dominated by gun control zealots are creating more so-called “gun-free” zones.
Yesterday, Denver, Colorado, an increasingly liberal city with a city council dominated by extreme leftists, joined the ranks of jurisdictions creating exceptions to concealed carry handgun rights.
As 9news.com, the local NBC affiliate in Denver, is reporting today, “The Denver City Council passed an ordinance Monday to ban concealed carry in city buildings and parks, with some exceptions. The ordinance covers any building or portion of a building owned by the city, leased by the city, or leased to the city, as well as city parks, including mountain parks.”
During a hearing about the ordinance, Denver Council President Stacie Gilmore, who voted for the ban, said, “I don’t think it’s necessary nor appropriate for members of the public, city employees, or anybody to have a concealed weapon in a city facility.”
But as has been the case in every jurisdiction across the United States, there is no statistical proof — or any other kind — that concealed carry permit holders commit crimes in Denver.
As the Denver Post reports, “District 2 Councilman Kevin Flynn asked representatives from the city attorney’s office last month for any statistics that could link gun crimes in the city to concealed carry permit holders.”
The answer given to the council? The Denver Police Department has no information of any kind indicating concealed carry permit holders commit crimes.
What is your opinion about jurisdictions that create so-called gun-free zones? Do you think gun-free zones reduce crime? Or, in your opinion, do they put law-abiding citizens at greater risk of becoming crime victims because criminals target gun-free zones? Please email your thoughts and views to [email protected].
