Best explanation of Gun Free Zones *ever*

Comes from a comment from Revenant on Ann Althouse's blog.
Well, setting up parts of a city as areas where certain activities are decriminalized (like several European cities do) lowers the rate for those crimes outside the zone, since would-be perpetrators migrate to the zone to commit the acts in question. I guess you could argue that, by clearly labeling their schools and malls as being full of 100% Legally Guaranteed Helpless Victims, proponents of gun-free zones provide the societally useful function of directing mass murderers towards those zones and away from other areas, such as my house and my office.

So thanks, concerned parents and shoppers, for volunteering to put yourselves and your children between me and whoever might want to kill me.
