Gun Free Zone
Enter At Own Risk
New Signs Posted On All County Buildings
|Those of us who believe in the constitution and
particularly the second amendment, the right to own and bear arms,
cringe when we see a sign on a building or a place of business that
prohibits handguns on the premises. Those signs almost guarantee anyone
who might have bad intentions that in this building they have nothing to
fear. There is no one in the building who could stop them from carrying
out their bad intentions. In fact all of the mass shootings that have
taken place in the modern era have taken place in gun free zones.
Hundreds have died because they were denied the right to defend
Well, our old pal Doyle Arp, who now apparently considers himself the owner of all county buildings, has taken it upon himself to declare all county buildings as gun free zones. Problem is, that's not his decision. The legislative body, county commission, is responsible for county buildings and they certainly have not voted on the matter. So once again, Arp feeling as though he is the king of the county, has over stepped his authority but what's new about that.
Except for those places declared gun free by state
law, anyone responsible for prohibiting those licensed to carry a
firearm to exercise their right to do so, becomes liable for any harm
that might come to those persons.
With all the angry and disgruntled people Arp has created, he should be the first one who would want to make sure that those around him could take action if necessary.
