Gun-Toting Robbers Take Advantage Of Fair Gun Ban

posted on September 25, 2015

Multiple armed robberies occurred at the fairgrounds in Puyallup, Wash., as criminals used an event-wide gun ban to their advantage. What is assumed to be the same group of robbers took money from workers at gunpoint in three separate incidents over a 20-minute time period. Fortunately, none of the victims were hurt. 

Police are still looking for the robbers, thought to be a group of four. As to why they chose to target the Washington State Fair, it is likely that the event’s ban on firearms played a big part. This is just another example of “gun-free zones” making life easy for criminals—whether they are after some easy money or something much worse.
