He also talked about the high rate of mass public shootings in parts of Europe, and finally how hard it is to stop these mass public shooters from getting weapons.

    John, Why is there never any action on eliminating gun free zones and requiring businesses to be responsible for the security and safety of their patrons.
    No gun free zone should be authorized unless the business or event has adequate armed security. The businesses in all these past shootings should be sued for not protecting their patrons. If you have a CCW or LEO credentials you should only have to show that official ID to enter anywhere.
