"When will people understand that only law-abiding people pay any attention to laws? "

When it starts being true, I suppose? Maybe you should try to understand that criminals do pay attention to the law and it affects their behavior.

"When will they grasp the concept that labeling something a "gun-free zone" doesn't magically do ANYTHING?"

Nothing does anything magically. What gun free zones do is reduce accidental and impulse shooting. They don't do much to prevent deliberate mass killing.

"Criminals will still have guns and they'll still bring them into a "gun-free zone" no matter how many signs are posted."

It means that if you stop a criminal before he commits the crime, you can get him on gun possession even if you can't prove anything else.

The opossum is a very sophisticated animal. It doesn't even get up until 5 or 6 PM.
