Endangering lives
03 Apr 2008

I REFER to "Zero tolerance for guns - Mpophomeni´s peace pilot"
(Weekend Witness, March 29).

It is quite obvious to anyone but the ideologically blind that
gun-free zones have been a complete and utter failure in every
country they have been tried.

Without exception, all school shootings have taken place in a
gun-free zone for good reason. Only criminals and madmen are
safe in gun-free zones. Citizens, parents, teachers and school
children are sitting ducks in a gun-free zone as the shooters
need have no fear of anyone shooting back at them.

The police never arrive in time to save lives and when they do,
they wait in safety for the shooting to stop. Only armed
citizens have ever saved lives and stopped further lives being
lost. If you want to endanger yourself, others and children then
declare gun-free zones.
