Somewhere in offices in L.A. sits a bunch of California educators who actually believe they just did something to make people safer:

The Los Angeles Community College District’s nine campuses will be gun-free zones, according to a resolution passed this week by the Board of Trustees that bans weapons in almost all circumstances.

“It is our responsibility to provide a safe environment for our students, allowing them to feel secure and able to totally focus on their academic goals,” said board Vice President Scott Svonkin, who sponsored the resolution. “They must never be fearful about setting foot on one of our campuses.”

Here’s where liberals are amazingly clueless. They believe that putting up a sign that says “no guns allowed” would actually stop people like this:

The move follows a June shooting rampage at and around Santa Monica College in which five people died.

The suspected gunman, John Zawahri, 23, is believed to have killed his father and older brother at their Yorkshire Avenue home before setting the house on fire. He then carjacked a motorist and forced her at gunpoint to drive him to Santa Monica College, along the way firing at several vehicles and killing a campus groundskeeper and his daughter.

After entering the campus, Zawahri shot and killed another woman before he was fatally wounded by police in the school library.

Now that people like that maniac will be stopped in their tracks by the “no guns allowed” sign, students can feel completely safe.

At least one-third of mass shootings since 2009 have taken place in gun free zones. How can that be? Aren’t the killers reading the signs?

    Let`s hope the signs aren`t written in cursive !

    The Batman movie shooter chose the one theater in five that had posted signs, "No Guns Allowed". Must just be a coincidence ! Never mind !

    Some times, signs just don`t work. People do what they want to do, regardless of the dangers posed. Our construction crew had already removed most of the store roofing, down to the framework. The debris we had piled along the side of the bldg. along with saw horses, rope, "Stay Out, Danger, No Trespassing, arrows pointing to the other door" signs in a way we believed would turn customers away from the usual side entrance and toward a front door that had been unused for a few years. We proceeded to cut and kick down the roof overhang and barely missed a mother and her two very small children. She had ignored the signs, the saw horses and rope. She had climbed with her kids in tow over the nearly 3 ft high pile of boards, roofing tar and gravel to get to the door she was used to using !

    Good for LA Community Colleges! Eventually a culling of the idiots will make it bearable for those of us with a little common sense. And there are plenty of crazies in LA that know how to read those signs and will use it to their advantage. I have no problem with this decision at all. Best of luck to the students, communist educators and support staff – you reap what you sow.

    Circa `80; it`s possible, she was a non-black minority.

    While we were beyond relieved and pleased that the large chunk of plaster, large enough to have killed them all, missed them, by less than 2 ft, no one left the roof to check on her and the kids. We could only think how stupid it was to traverse the blocks we put in her way. She didn`t need to be fussed at ! She needed clean drawers !

    Gun control types believe in their cause with the blind faith of fundamuzzies, and they have the success rate of UN "Peace-keepers" or Bigfoot & UFO hunters.

    "Fundamuzzies", Ha, so stealin` that !!

    The killers probably attended the colleges in question, which is why they can't read.
