Libertarian Party Calls for End of ‘Government-Mandated Gun-Free Zones’

Nicholas Sarwark, chairman of the Libertarian National Committee, warned Monday that the U.S. is at risk of “more mass shootings” as he criticized both President Barack Obama and presumptive Republican nominee Donald Trump for “recycling their calls for more failed and deadly policies.” Sarwark also asserted that the Libertarian Party is the only political party that is “calling for sensible, serious policy change that would reduce the frequency of mass shootings as well as minimize the damage they do.”

“Virtually all mass shootings happen in ‘gun-free’ zones,” Sarwark said. “Regardless of the ideology of the shooter or the type of weapons used, the common link is that the event occurs where responsible gun owners are prohibited from carrying arms for self-defense.”
