Gun-free zones are targets for criminals

When I walk into any business that displays a "No concealed weapons allowed" door sign, I think that if I were a knife- or gun-touting criminal looking for a victim, this would be a great place to commit a crime. The criminal would know that each law-abiding citizen inside the building who possesses a concealed weapon permit (CWP) has safely placed his or her weapon into the locked trunk of their car.
