The Kenya Mall was a "Gun Free Zone"

Obviously, they needed bigger and better signs so that terrorists would have known that. From PJ Media:
Reports from Kenya indicate that security wasn’t allowed to carry firearms in the upscale mall where the massacre occurred. At the end of the day, this was another mass shooting in a “gun-free zone.”  It would seem that someone forgot to tell the terrorists that weapons were not allowed.  Knowing terrorists, I’m sure if they had known about the restriction they would have dutifully complied.   Still, there is that chance that some terrorists are not the most upstanding, law-abiding folks in any given neighborhood.  Perhaps the better part of valor is making sure that “the gun free” zone goes the way of the dinosaur.  We all may be a lot safer.
And this note:
 In the wake of the Sandy Hook tragedy, Resident Obama commissioned government to study the impact of guns on America.  The Centers for Disease Control (CDC) was given $10 million to research gun violence.  What they found was a nearly complete repudiation of left-wing talking points on guns.  Among the findings were these little gems.  Armed citizens are less likely to be injured by an attacker.  How many times has some extremist progressive tried to convince us that we’re better off not having a gun when confronted by someone else with a gun?  Liberals have claimed that it’s more likely that victim would do more damage because of their assumed lack of experience and ability to wield a firearm.  The CDC also found that Defensive uses of guns are common.  Willfully ill-informed left-wingers consistently claim whine, “What does anyone need with a gun America anyway?”   According to the survey, “Almost all national survey estimates indicate that defensive gun uses by victims are at least as common as offensive uses by criminals, with estimates of annual uses ranging from about 500,000 to more than 3 million per year.”
