    Has been submitted in Arizona, let's do likewise here in Pennsylvania. I've already sent a copy to my state representative (Sam Smith - Punxsutawney):

    The Gun-Free-Zone Liability Act of 2008

    Establishes liability for harm caused by criminal conduct, when such
    conduct is wholly or partially enabled by limiting an individual's right
    or ability to self defense.

    REFERENCE TITLE: Gun-Free-Zone Liability Act
    State of Arizona
    (sponsoring house)
    Forty-Eighth Legislature
    Second Regular Session
    2008

    __.B. _____ Introduced by ________________________

    AN ACT AMENDING TITLE 13, CHAPTER 31, ARIZONA REVISED STATUTES BY ADDING A NEW SECTION.

    A. Any person, organization or entity, or any agency of government that creates a gun-free zone shall be liable for damages resulting from criminal conduct that occurs against an individual in such gun-free zone, if a reasonable person would believe that possession of a firearm could have helped the individual defend against such conduct. In the event the conduct is a result of a terrorist attack as federally defined, or adversely affects a disabled person, a person who is a member of a minority as federally defined, a senior citizen or a child under 16 years of age, treble damages shall apply.

    B. For the purposes of this section, criminal conduct shall include offenses specified under this title in Chapter 11 (Homicide), Chapter 12 (Assault and Related Offenses), Chapter 13 (Kidnapping), Chapter 14 (Sexual Offenses), Chapter 15 (Criminal Trespass and Burglary), Chapter 17 (Arson), Chapter 19 (Robbery), Chapter 25 (Escape and Related Offenses), Chapter 29 (Offenses Against Public Order) and Chapter 36 (Family Offenses).

    C. For the purposes of this section, the term "gun-free zone" shall mean any building, place, area or curtilage that is open to the public, or in or upon any public conveyance, where a person's right or ability to keep arms or to bear arms is infringed, restricted or diminished in any way by statute, policy, rule, regulation, ordinance, utterance or posted signs.

    Now there is some decent pro-gun legislation.

    Rather than laws making it legal to shoot anyone for any reason...

    IMO of course.

    The moral bankruptcy of so-called "gun free zones" is beginning to become more and more obvious to people....even in the media!

    To be simple. Wow-O Go figure.

    Also I wonder if we wrote up our own version of that law proposal, who we could get to sponsor it.

    I sent the Arizona version to my state rep, House Minority Leader Sam Smith (Punxsutawney). You send it to yours. They'll re-word it as necessary.

    If enough of us send such to our elected representatives, they might get the idea.
