From the totally predictable category, a story out of Washington State once again demonstrates the folly of gun-free zones. The Washington State Fair bans the carrying of guns or weapons of any kind on their premises. Ammoland observes:
The effect of creating a weapons free zone was not lost on a group of criminals. They used the fact that fair workers were known to be disarmed to their advantage. Three different armed robberies of State Fair workers were committed in less than 20 minutes, on the 15th of September, Sunday night, shortly after the Fair closed.
