    My Letter to the Editor of our local paper about "Gun Free Zones"

    I hope this letter finds the right home. I sent it to our local Paper.
    ----

    Gun Free Zones Do Not Work!

    The decision to post Westfield Schools as "Gun Free" is a very dangerous mistake!
    Advertising a school as "Gun Free" has historically created an environment where a Coward can prey on the innocent, knowing they will meet little, to no resistance. These cowards view a Gun Free Zone as a safe place for themselves.
    There is a reason why these misfits do not shoot up Police Stations. The quote " The only thing that stops a bad guy with a gun, is a good guy with a gun" is the reason. Evil thrives were good men do nothing, they say.
    Any Law, preventing a good person from being able to defend themself and others, is a bad Law.
    Law abiding citizens, that carry a firearm, view the gun as a tool, only to be used to Defend and Protect, and nothing else.
    Preventing or detering these violent acts is what we all wish to accomplish. The school board's decision will only promote a defensless situation that may have the possibility of ending in another Case Study.
    The Consitution and the Supreme Court of the United States recognizes and upholds the second amendment as an Individual Right that Shall Not be Infringed!
    Unfortunately, the well meaning folks that think a Sign and a Law will stop a Killer, Need to look no further than the front page of any newspaper.
    Taking away this very important right, leaves the teachers and childen in harms way. This matter needs to be reconsidered and voted on by the People.
    Thank You! John Kutzler

    Hope it gets published.

    My state outlawed 'Gun-Free-Zones'.

    The puke that shot up the Aurora Theater in CO passed several theaters, with more people in them, to get to the ONLY one with a "Gun-Free-Zone' sign.
    The sign was actually not legal.

    Welcome to the forum. Very well written letter. It is good that it says what needs to be said but is not so long that people will quit reading it before it ends and the short paragraphs are best for newspaper readers.

    Other folks could benefit from using your letter as a loose template to write their own letters to their own papers. Taking action is good!

    You never know. A couple years ago I sent a letter to our local paper expressing extreme discontent with an anti gun editorial cartoon they published. My first sentence was, "I do not suppose this letter will be published....". They published the letter, including my first sentence.

    Keep the faith.

    Thanks for the positive comments. Yes i Run a small home based Transmission Shop. I wrote a few pages of notes and then took them to their lowest terms in order to make the impact it needs to have. I should know this week if they will publish it. It sure is hard to comprehend the mentality of these people. If they really wanted to do something effective that would prevent kids from getting hurt, they would take their car keys away!
