      Yes, because the gun free zone already in effect worked so well. When will people learn that criminals do not care about bans.

    Want to know the difference between a killer and someone who fires in self-defense? Someone who fires in self-defense stays and waits for the police, and the killer runs.

    the feds and the oakland pd would be better serving the public if they were hunting the shooter on the loose, instead of beating up medical marijuana patients in walkers and wheelchairs. the shooter may get away, across town, but your TAX DOLLARS should beat up some non toxic plants today. http://www.ustream.tv/channel/oaktownlive
