Need More Proof...

...that gun free zones just don't work?

Try this on for size.

A nearly 600-pound man was able to hide a weapon for more than a day while he was in custody, police told KPRC Local 2 Wednesday.

"Obviously the system broke down," former Harris County Detention Major Mark Kellar said. "The procedures didn't work as they were designed to work."

Houston police said George Vera, 25, was arrested Aug. 2 and taken to the city jail. He spent a day there before being transferred to the Harris County Jail. After being there for 14 hours, going through intake procedures, he was taken to the showers, the final step before going to his cell. There, Vera told police he had a 9mm handgun on him, along with 2 clips.
So this inmate had a pistol, and two magazines inside a jail cell. He then carried them on prisoner transport between jails, and was only found out because he "...told police" he had them?

To my way of thinking, the inside of a jail cell is pretty much the most secure "gun free zone" there is, yet still the goblins get guns into those zones.

This is not an isolated incident. Inmates With Guns and Inmate Found With Gun are earlier posts of incidents where goblins had guns in lockup, once in a maximum security unit of the Mississippi State Penitentiary.

Those who restrict our rights by creating so called "gun free zones" know these facts and understand that some silly sign will not provide any measure of safety to the good folks who are unfortunate enough to be caught in one of these zones when a goblin goes on a rampage.

So if our safety is not their goal, what is?

Their mantra is all guns are bad... AND they expect criminals (who don't obey any other laws) to obey gun laws? Gimme a break! I call gun free zones target rich environments for bad guys!

I mean, crazy to tell right? I figure a 9mm handgun in prison has to be worth a year's supplies of cigs.

He coulda been rich!
