Film exposes 'gun-free zones' as 'unarmed-victim zones'

At the core of Barack Obama’s gun ban agenda, which he’s been pursuing largely unsuccessfully since he entered office, is the idea that laws banning weapons will cut down on violence.

He’s raised the issue after virtually every shooting episode that’s injured America, including at the memorial service in Dallas for the five police officers killed by a sniper.

There, he said, “We flood communities with so many guns it’s easier for a teen to get his hands on a Glock than get a computer or a book.”

But now the Gun Owners of America has released a short film portraying the real problem that governments, schools and others are trying to address by banning guns in specific areas, what critics describe as “unarmed victim” zones.

Those are areas where shootings happened at Virginia Tech in 2007, Fort Hood in 2009, the Aurora movie theater in 2012, Sandy Hook in 2012, the DC Navy yard in 2013, Fort Hood in 2014, the Chattanooga military offices in 2015 and the Lafayette Grand Theatre in 2015. Those attacks cost 105 lives and injured more than 150.

“If we add more recent high-profile attacks in gun-free zones – Umpqua Community College (October 2015) and Pulse Orlando (June 2016) – the death toll rises to 163 and the number of injured far exceeds 200,” GOA said.

This infallible argument for armed self-defense presents real stories of Americans fighting back against criminals – and surviving because they were armed. “America Fights Back: Armed Self-Defense In A Violent Age” is a must-read for anyone who has ever wondered if concealed carry can actually save and protect.

So its short movie looks directly at that issue: (Advisory: Some violent images)

“Praesidium,” made in cooperation with production company Reel Clef, directed by Paul Myzia, opens with a man running down a street in desperation. The street is lined with abandoned buildings and the man turns and runs into one, as suspense builds. Inside, on a concrete floor, lies a beautiful woman who has been shot dead.

Frustrated, the man finds a “no guns allowed” sign and puts it outside the building.

He then turns back time, but finds, again, the woman dead.

He spray paints a huge “no guns allowed” emblem, and eventually plasters the walls and floor with the ban, only to find they’ve made no difference.

Then, “The man pulls out a semiautomatic handgun and chambers a round. He places the gun next to the woman and turns back time. Just as he gets close to the building, he hears gunshots,” GAO describes.

“He darts inside the building to see the woman standing, handgun in hand, and her attacker lying lifeless on the ground,” and a quote from Thomas Jefferson appears, “The laws that forbid the carrying of arms disarm only those who are neither inclined, nor determined to commit crimes.”

“I sincerely hope that viewers (whether pro or anti-gun) walk away realizing the dangers of gun-free zones, and consider that we the people need to challenge them,” Myzia said in an email to Breitbart. “Every person I shared the idea for the film with, including anti-gunners, admitted, ‘Well yeah, of course, criminals don’t care and that sign isn’t going to stop one.’ My follow-up question, then, is: Okay, if we all agree with that – why do they even exist?”
