Chicago Mercy Hospital, the site of Monday’s heinous shooting, is a state-mandated gun-free zone. Moreover, Mercy’s parking lot–the spot where the shooting began–is mandate gun-free as well.
Gabby Giffords’ gun control website noted that Illinois’ hospitals and hospital parking lots are off-limits for concealed carry of firearms as recently as September 13, 2018. The language of the state’s concealed carry law prohibits carrying a firearm in “any building, real property, and parking area under the control of a public or private hospital or hospital affiliate, mental health facility, or nursing home.”
Three people were killed when 32-Juan Lopez ignored the gun-free policy. Those three Dr. Tamara O’Neal, pharmaceutical assistant Dayna Less, and Chicago Police Officer Samuel Jimenez. (Jimenez was shot and fatally wounded while responding to reports of shots fired.)
On November 19, 2018, the Crime Prevention Research Center reported:
Unfortunately, this attack occurred in yet another gun-free zone. Permitted concealed handguns are banned in public or private hospital or hospital affiliate, mental health facility or nursing home. …Yet, the media refuses to point out that this was yet another attack that occurred in a gun-free zone. As usual, we could not find a single news story that mentioned this attack occurred where people were not allowed to have guns for protection.
