Gun Free Zones deter criminals from committing gun related crime in certain areas the same way that drug laws deter drug dealers from selling drugs.
Oh wait...criminals don't concern themselves with laws. Whoops.
Before it is stated...no, drug laws should not be done away with because "people will do them anyway." I have heard that counter argument and it is not the same in my eyes, because selling drugs is protecting nobody while a law abiding gun owner who is concealing a firearm for personal protection is hurting nobody except whoever is intending to kill or severely injure somebody.
When faced with imminent death at the hands of a weapon wielding maniac...I would rather rely on myself than the response time of a police officer.
