An interesting graphic
A writer has tabulated the number of mass murders over 5 year periods, defining a mass-murder as 4 or more victims. He draws a line showing the time when the Gun-Free Zones Act was legislated. You will see that there were a lot of periods before the act when there were no mass murders but only one such period after the act. Additionally, there were also many MORE mass murders in each relevant period after the act. He draws the conclusion that enabling gun-free zones has QUADRUPLED the number of mass murders -- very much the opposite of what was intended by the legislation and very much what conservatives would have predicted.
