Swedish newspaper has a solution to terror attacks: “Car-free zones”

The headline in the fourth largest Swedish paper, Aftonbladet, had the headline “Rensa Stockholm – stoppa bilarna,” which translated means “Clear Stockholm – stopping cars.”  Banning guns from areas is obviously not the same as banning cars.  Putting up barricades to cars in areas with lots of pedestrians can make sense.  …

Interview with America’s 1st Freedom: “Gun-Free Zones Are Targets”

Here is an interview that Dr. John Lott did with America’s 1st Freedom:

UPDATED: Shooting at Fort Lauderdale airport in yet another gun-free zone, 44 states allow concealed carry at airports

A shooting today at the Fort Lauderdale-Hollywood International Airport has left at least 5 dead and 13 injured.  Not surprisingly, Florida is one of only 6 states with laws that banned carrying guns in the unsecured areas of airports.  A move was killed in 2016 to overturn this ban, and the reason for overturning it seems very applicable to today’s events.  …

Once Again, Gun Control advocates push for gun control after Ohio State University Terrorist Attack before they know the facts

Concealed Carry

Permitted Concealed Handguns will be allowed at Republican National Convention within the 8-square-kilometer “event zone”

From the Voice of America:

Thanks to Ohio state laws, anyone within the 8-square-kilometer “event zone” in downtown Cleveland will be able to openly carry legally owned firearms. With a valid permit, they can even carry a concealed weapon.

And city officials cannot change that.

“It’s the state law, and we have to follow the law, so yeah,” Dan Williams, a spokesman for the Cleveland mayor’s office, told VOA when asked whether protesters would be able to carry guns in the event zone.
