Gun Free Zones - Short Film

It's a difficult task, making a short film, and subject matter aside, this short film was made quite well. Especially considering it was probably made on a budget of less than $1000 which probably came straight out of the directors own pocket.

"Laws that forbid the carrying of arms disarm only those who are neither inclined nor determined to commit crimes"

This quote is often attributed to Thomas Jefferson, however, he never said it nor wrote it. But he did include it in his "Legal Commonplace Book". The actual quote is from Cesare Becarria's "Essays on Crime and Punishment". But really, that's neither here nor there, because the root philosophy behind the quote is not only alarmingly true, but it's also the basis for this short film.

Gun Free Zones do nothing to deter an armed criminal, they serve only to disarm law-abiding citizens. I hope you enjoy the short film...
