‘Mass shooting’ reported at Jacksonville Landing in Florida at another Gun-free zone

26 Aug , 2018  

Another horrible tragedy in Florida with two people killed in yet another gun-free zone where general citizens were banned from having guns for protection.

News 4 Jacksonville reports (Updated):

A gunman from Baltimore opened fire during a video game tournament Sunday afternoon inside Chicago Pizza at the Jacksonville Landing, killing two and injuring a dozen others before taking his own life, Sheriff Mike Williams announced.

Williams tentatively identified the shooter as 24-year-old David Katz. His body was among three bodies police found when they responded to reports of gunfire at the Landing at 1:34 p.m. Nine victims were transported to area hospitals, seven with gunshot wounds. Two additional victims showed up at hospitals with gunshot wounds. Memorial Hospital released a statement early Monday morning saying a fourth victim was treated at the hospital and released Sunday. The other three victims at Memorial are in good condition. . . . .

The Jacksonville Landing “Rules of Conduct” ban permitted concealed handguns on their grounds: “Possession of a weapon, even if legally carried (except by law enforcement officers) is absolutely prohibited on Landing property.”

Don’t expect the media to report this. Is there a chance that there will be a move towards getting rid of these gun-free zones.

Here is a list of mass public shootings that were stopped by concealed handgun permit holders.

    No mention of this, of course, on WSJ, which, very unusually, has not allowed comments to their article.
