    no firearms allowed = free fire zone ……….

    Luke 22:35 And he said unto them, When I sent you without purse, and scrip, and shoes, lacked ye any thing? And they said, Nothing.
    Luke 22:36 Then said he unto them, But now, he that hath a purse, let him take it, and likewise his scrip: and he that hath no sword, let him sell his garment, and buy one.

    even if you must be naked …. be armed …….. “and he that hath no sword, let him sell his garment, and buy one” …. the only thing that stops a bad man with a gun ….. is an armed good man ……..
