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.

CPRC Research in the Media about Gun-Free Zones

The Daily Caller, Monday, June 13, 2016

Another “new” lesson: Gun-free zones do not prevent attacks of this nature, and this past weekend in Florida proves it. According to the Crime Prevention Research Center, both the Pulse and the location where former Voice contestant Christine Grimmie was killed were “gun-free” zones.

Christina Grimmie killed in Gun-free zone

As the picture above shows, the man who fatally shot Christina Grimmie did so in a gun-free zone.  Somehow, despite the ban on weapons, the killer, Kevin James Loibi, was able to get a large knife in addition to two handguns into the concert area.

As one headline reads: “Christina Grimmie fans demand guns be BANNED after star’s fatal shooting.”  Within hours after this tragedy, gun control advocates were calling for more gun control.  …

UPDATE: Tennessee legislature makes major moves to get rid of gun-free zones at public universities and businesses

By overwhelming votes, the Tennessee legislature passed three bills that get rid of gun-free zones at public universities and provides immunity to businesses if they don’t post ban.  CPRC’s John Lott testified on all three bills when they started in the state Senate Judiciary Committee.

The gun-free zones at public universities allows “full-time employees of state public colleges or universities to carry a handgun while on property owned, operated, or used by the employing college or university if the employee has a valid Tennessee handgun carry permit.”  This bill passed by a 28 to 5 vote in the state Senate and 69 to 24 in the state House.  …

Army Chief of Staff General Mark Milley says 8 minute response time in mass public shootings is fast enough

Army Chief of Staff General Mark Milley says 8 minute response time in mass public shootings is “adequate” and “pretty quick,” opposes letting soldiers carry weapons on military bases


Here is a video clip of the Army chief of staff testifying on April 7th that it isn’t necessary to arm soldiers on military bases, such as Fort Hood attack, because:
“We have adequate law enforcement on those bases to respond … You take the Fort Hood incident number two, the one where I was the commander of Third Corps, those police responded within eight minutes and that guy was dead.”  (This discussion starts at 1:57 into the video.)
It is true that 8 minutes is a “pretty quick” response time, as the General says, but to say that eight minutes where 3 people were killed and another 14 were injured is “adequate” is pretty amazing.  …
