This Is What Happens in a Gun Free Zone: University of Chicago Edition

Guns save lives. Gun control puts them in harm’s way.

I live in Chicago’s Hyde Park. It’s pretty much owned by the university of Chicago. Thanks to our concealed carry laws, any property owned by a university is a gun-free zone (GFZ). Since the U of C owns almost ALL of the commercial property in a six block radius – dry cleaners, ACE Hardware, Staples, the grocery story, Starbucks, the noodle shop and more – they are all posted. This is how the criminals view the campus area [via dnainfo.com] . . .

Chicago Police say they have caught a 21-year-old man they said committed nine robberies in Hyde Park since September . . .

According to police, [Tommy] Langston was one of the two men who four times approached University of Chicago students or faculty between Oct. 31 and Nov. 7 near 54th and Blackstone Avenue between and implied or showed a handgun before stealing money and valuables.

Langston also was a part of another string of three evening robberies on Sept. 7 in which two men again approached university students or faculty and implied a gun before stealing money and valuables, police said.

Police said the investigation about the two strings of robberies is still ongoing.
