Daily Show host Trevor Noah, a moonbat who barks that great men like Christopher Columbus, Cecil Rhodes, and Andrew Jackson were worse than Hitler, would never intentionally argue against something as moronically left-wing as gun-free zones. He thought he was ridiculing the owner of an ice cream shop in St. Cloud, Minnesota (site of a recent Muslim terror attack) for posting a sign reading “MUSLIMS GET OUT.” But his argument applies perfectly to signs declaring gun-free zones:
You know what’s also strange is this man genuinely thought people who go around blowing people up would be stopped by a sign? You realize you’re talking to terrorists, not vampires. They don’t need to be invited in, all right? Or maybe he’s onto something, because if you think about it, we’ve never tried that. We’ve never actually tried to repel terrorists with signs. Yeah, maybe that’s all the airports need is a sign that says “No Terrorists,” yes? Yeah, and then guys are going to be walking going, “Oh, I was going to blow up the airport, but the rules are rules and they said I can’t come in. They said I can’t. They said I can’t come in.”
We have never tried “No Terrorists” signs, but we have tried “Gun-Free Zone” signs many times. They don’t work:
The Sandy Hook massacre? Gun-free zone. Columbine? Gun-free zone. The Aurora movie theater shooting? Gun-free zone. The shooting last year at an Oregon community college? Gun-free zone. The shooting at a movie theater in Lafayette? Gun-free zone. The attack on a military recruiting center in Chattanooga? Gun-free zone. The Ft. Hood shooting? You guessed it: gun-free zone. The San Bernardino attack? Gun-free zone. And the massacre perpetrated by an ISIS enthusiast at an Orlando night club? Gun-free zone.
Noah’s argument applies not only to gun-free zones but to gun laws in general. Neither have much effect on criminals, other than to reassure them that their victims will not be armed.
With the arguable exception of abortion clinics, the entire country is a murder-free zone. That doesn’t stop Islamic terrorism or gun violence by psychos and hoodlums. That’s why law-abiding citizens need to be armed, so as to be able to defend themselves.
