Pennsylvania town commissioners to vote on banning firearm dealers within 1000' of schools

And banning signage.
Manheim Township to vote on 'gun-shop-free school zones' petition Monday
The gun store, now closed, relocated right around the time of a school shooting in Parkland, Florida, that killed 17 people in February 2018. School officials mentioned the shooting, as well as ongoing concerns for school safety during a hearing on the petition in September.
Because Parkland was caused by proximity to a firearm store.
Nearby Franklin & Marshall College, 637 College Ave., is also in favor of the proposal.
“We continue to believe it is beneficial to the students,” Cohen said.
Because?

Treat them like tobacco or alcohol? I guess that's why ATF is one acronym?

People have strange ideas about how to make things safe.

Yup they've become like porn shops, in the past it was also restrictions on bars and liquor stores. All the burger joints and fat laden fast food take outs in areas are more dangerous to kids health than a gun shop.

Apparently the people who frequent gun shops are dangerous freaks...or the mere thought of a gun will somehow corrupt our youth.

So strange. I am sure they based this on data and facts and evidence, right? ;)
