Of all the dreck that's being proposed in the congress, here's the only one so far that might actually help.
Latest Title: To repeal the Gun-Free School Zones Act of 1990 and amendments to that Act.
Sponsor: Rep Massie, Thomas [KY-4] (introduced 1/3/2013) Cosponsors (None)
Latest Major Action: 1/3/2013 Referred to House committee. Status: Referred to the House Committee on the Judiciary.
Imagine the deterrent factor of a $10 sign on the school house door reading "Your valid CCW welcome here."
Drop your rep a line and suggest he co-sponsor this.
You are probably aware that Congressman Massie (KY) has introduced HR133, a bill to repeal the Gun-Free School Zones Act of 1990. The President has called for quick action to prevent another school shooting, and this is the most realistic answer to a problem that no "assault weapons" ban will cure.
It's unfortunate that we need to protect our children with firearms, but it has been proven over and over again to be the only effective method we have.
Signs proclaiming "NO GUNS" have proven to be magnets for unstable people, not a deterrent. Far more effective would be a sign proclaiming "Your CCW Welcome here."
Had she been allowed to be armed, Principal Dawn Hochsprung and 25 others might still be alive.
I urge you to support HR133 and to go further and take the lead to allow responsible people inside schools to be their own first line of defense.
