Personally, I think it sounds crazy to think that legislative creation of Gun-Free Zones will protect anyone. I don't think it's reasonable to believe that a person who is willing to shoot into a crowd, of any sort, will somehow be deterred on the basis that guns aren't allowed there. All GFZs do is ensure that such a person is shooting fish in a barrel.
