I’ve written about them before, in Overland Park, KS. The Gun Violence Prevention Project.
One thing they have done is attempted to take credit for getting businesses to post no guns signs. They don’t realize that gun free zones = kill zones. Anyway, on their site they take credit for a high volume of these signs at http://www.gvpp.net/blog/2013/04/08/Patronize-These-No-Gun-Merchants.aspx
Well, I posted the following comment on that item. And this is what I posted:
Some very important errors on your list. Drove by some of the places today 6/15/13: 1. Hy-Vee at 95th and Antioch does NOT appear to have a no gun sign posted. 2. Drove the west and north sides of the Oak Park Mall. Stores with outside entrances, J C Penney, Dillard’s, Macy’s, Five Guys, American Girl, Barnes and Noble were NOT posted. Neither was the Macy’s free standing furniture store. Folks can walk in those outside entrances with no problem about carrying. The Mall entrance and the Food Court entrance were posted, but those stores with exterior entrances with no postings are not restricted. Wonder how many other places on this list are not posted that you folks are claiming credit for?
Maybe more merchants are realizing that it is true that gun free zones = kill zones. This group was even upset that they couldn’t get a movie theater to post. Well, let’s look at Aurora Colorado. The perpetrator there drove past two theaters that were not posted to get to one that was…………..and he turned a gun free zone into a kill zone. But they won’t learn. They think a piece of paper is going to stop a criminal. Yeah, right!!!!!!!!
