"gun-free" should depend on whomever owns the property. However, the Public Sector is subject to the constitution, and the right to bear arms is mostly important in the public sector.

People who intend on shooting up a school won't be deterred by a sign that says "no guns allowed." However, he will be stopped by someone who also owns a gun.

Much regulation is not based in reality. It is based in theory, the idea that criminals obey regulations, thus never committing crimes.
