I wish I could say that it’s comforting that Target and other retailers have asked their customers to not bring firearms into their stores. Unfortunately, this only guarantees that those who do enter with firearms are either criminals or the insane.
As has been proven many times, it takes a good person with a gun to stop a bad person with a gun.
“Gun-free zones” only tell bad people that they’ll not be challenged by anyone with a firearm until law enforcement arrives and it’s too late.
