E-mail from Cartwrighte on Safe Schools Act
Dear Mr. rmagill,

Thank you for taking the time to write to me with your thoughts on the Safe Schools Act of 2013. I appreciate hearing from you on this important issue and I'm glad to have the opportunity to respond.

The Safe Schools Act of 2013 would eliminate "Gun-Free School Zones," and allow school personnel to carry guns in order to protect students. I am deeply saddened by the school shooting in Newtown, CT as well as the recent spate of mass shootings in Oregon, Wisconsin, and Colorado. These tragedies have thrust gun control laws into the spotlight and I recognize that this is a sensitive issue fraught with emotion.

I took an oath to uphold the Constitution, and as a former trial attorney I have the deepest respect for our nation's laws. Our country has a long and proud tradition of gun ownership and having owned guns I recognize the important role they play in protection. As a Congressman, one of my greatest priorities is keeping our children safe. I was recently appointed to the Gun Violence Task Force and will work towards solutions to prevent future tragedies, including ensuring sufficient access to mental health services. I will approach this assignment with an open mind, and am looking for input from all sides of the debate.

The Safe School Act of 2013 is currently pending in the House Committee on the Judiciary. Should the Safe Schools Act of 2013 come to the full House of Representatives for consideration, I will certainly keep your comments in mind. If you would like to stay connected to our office with the latest news, legislation, and other useful information, please sign-up up for my e-newsletter or visit my website. Thank you again for reaching out, and please do not hesitate to contact my office with any future questions or comments.
