PA House State Government Committee to Examine Perils of Gun-Free Zones
WHAT: Following this morning’s Rally to Protect Your Right to Keep and Bear Arms,
PA House State Government Committee Chairman Daryl Metcalfe (R-Butler) will convene an informational meeting focusing on the issue of gun-free zones.

The meeting will feature a presentation by Dr. John Lott, nationally recognized gun rights expert, economist, columnist and president of Crime Prevention Research Center.

Since 1950, more than 98 percent of public mass shootings in America have taken place where citizens are banned from carrying guns. In Europe, every mass public shooting in history has occurred in a gun-free zone. With permit holders preventing dozens of mass public shootings in recent years, it is unsurprising that violent criminals view gun-free zones as easy targets.
