Gun Free Boston

This is supposed to be a warning about the dangers of guns and gangs in Boston schools. All it is to me is an indication of what a "Gun Free Zone" really looks like.
Gunshots rang out - at least six rounds in rapid fire - as girls played softball last month at Madison Park Technical Vocational High School, just blocks from Boston police headquarters. Only a few girls flinched at the gunfire, and none ducked for cover as a pack of youths sprinted from the shooting site amid the scream of sirens and screech of tires from approaching police vehicles.
So gunfights happen so often, despite there being "Gun Free" signs about and in close proximity to a local police station, that school students and staff don't really even notice it any more?

Is that supposed to be the Clarion call for more gun control?

Is anyone surprised?
