NRA spokesperson Dana Loesch blames gun-free zones for Jacksonville shooting

NRA spokesperson Dana Loesch has already found a reason for the Jacksonville, Florida shooting Sunday, and it has nothing to do with a “disgruntled” gamer being angry that he lost.

“A horrible tragedy. End gun free zones or have the security in place to keep people safe in them,” Loesch tweeted Sunday, linking to the Jacksonville Landing rules of conduct.

The site doesn’t specifically cite guns, but it said, “Possession of a weapon, even if legally carried (except by law enforcement officers) is absolutely prohibited on Landing property.”

The shooter did not have the gun when he went into the Jacksonville Landing site. Accounts of the tragedy say that he went to his car to get the gun and came back. There are no metal detectors before entering Jacksonville Landing and police were not wanding people as they entered the Madden Tournament as evidenced by the fact that the gunman was not stopped from entering the tournament site with a gun.
