Did you know that gun free zones are magical places? It’s true. They’re so magical that the mere presence of a sign or a rule against having guns will automatically make those planning to ignore laws against things like robbery and murder reconsider the error of their ways, at least on that property.
Or, at least, that’s what people like casino owner Steve Wynn thinks.
The Wynns has long banned guns from their casinos and resorts. Steven Wynn’s latest statements give us an insight into the minds of the gun grabbers.
Mr. Wynn believes that the attack that Stephen Paddock launched killing nearly 60 people would never have been able to happen at any of his properties. He thinks that the fact that his hotels and properties are gun-free zones would have stopped the massacre that occurred in Las Vegas.
Somehow a crazed madman who committed the crime of murder nearly 60 times and committed over 500 other crimes would have obeyed a sign forbidding guns according to Steve Wynn.
History has shown us that so-called “gun free zones” do not work. These places only create soft targets for mass shooters like that of Virginia Tech, Aurora, and Sandy Hook.
“We don’t allow guns in this building unless they’re being carried by our employees, and there’s a lot of them,” Wynn told Fox News about if the shooting could have taken place at one of his hotels.
It’s as if he believes that the hotel rule against guns becomes an impenetrable barrier for all firearms. Hell, I’ll be willing to bet you there are half a dozen firearms in non-employee hands on his properties right now.
Gun free zones aren’t magical places powered by pixie dust and unicorn farts, they’re places that only inhibit the law-abiding from carrying a firearm. For those who have ill intent in their hearts and minds, a gun free zone is nothing. Honestly, if you’re willing to kill people, does a sign telling you guns aren’t allowed going to dissuade you?
Of course not. Wynn’s belief that his rules keep anyone safe is laughable.
His own admission of armed employees is proof that he doesn’t really buy what he’s selling, either. He knows that rules are irrelevant to those who have no issue breaking laws. Otherwise, why would he need armed security? Wouldn’t his rules be sufficient?
But Wynn knows that his petty rules are useless against the unlawful. He knows it, yet would still see people like you and me unarmed. He’d see us helpless.
The problem is, Wynn and people like him believe they’re better than everyone else. They believe they have a right to being protected by armed security that you can’t afford, but would deny you the ability to do the job yourself.
Well, no. Not going to happen.
Mr. Wynn doesn’t want armed citizens in his hotels, so I plan to oblige him. I’ll never darken the door of one of his hotels.
No, I’m not talking about a boycott. I’m talking about actual common sense.
