Because It Worked So Well At Newtown: NJ Teachers' Union Wants More Gun-Free Zones February 26, 2013

What's that definition of insanity again?

Oh, yeah: Doing the same thing over and over again and expecting a different result.

The Newtown, CT shooter went to a gun-free zone. The Aurora, CO shooter went to a gun-free zone.

So what could possibly go wrong if there were more gun-free zones?

The New Jersey teachers union endorsed a state Assembly bill that would turn schools and surrounding areas into gun-free zones.

Though the Assembly approved more than 20 gun-related bills recently, the New Jersey Education Association (NJEA) will back only three of them. In addition to creating more gun-free zones, the teachers union also supports a bill that prohibits the state from investing pension funds in gun companies, and another establishing a task force to study school security...

Creating gun-free zones is a popular, albeit controversial, response to the threat of violence in schools. Larry Pratt, executive director of Gun Owners of America, gave a talk Monday arguing the zones actually endanger kids.

“We now have good reason to think that many of these mass murders occurred because they were in so-called ‘gun-free zones,’” Pratt said, according to Red Alert Politics.
