Stockman Introduces Legislation to
Repeal School Gun Ban!

Ask your Congressman to Cosponsor H.R. 35
“I have one concern -- protecting children from dangerous predators. By disarming qualified citizens and officials in schools we have created a dangerous situation for our children.” -- Rep. Steve Stockman (R-TX)

Dear,

We told you that Rep. Steve Stockman would be the most aggressive defender of our gun rights on Capitol Hill.

He proved us right on Thursday, when he introduced the Very First pro-gun bill in the Congress, in the face of a tidal wave of anti-gun hysteria.

Congressman Steve Stockman has introduced H.R. 35, the Safe Schools Act of 2013 -- a bill to allow principals, teachers, and staff to possess firearms in order to defend their students.

Before 1996, American kindergartners didn’t have to fear that if a crazed gunman burst into their classroom, they would be nothing but sitting ducks.

Before then, they didn’t have to worry that federal law openly advertised that there would be no one to protect them.

“In the 22 years before enactment of ‘gun free school zones,’ there were two mass school shootings,” Stockman said. “In the 22 years since enactment of ‘gun free schools,’ there have been 10 mass school shootings.

“Not only has that bill utterly failed to protect our children, it appears to have placed them in danger,” said Stockman.

Indeed, it has.

Within a couple of years of the reenactment of the Gun Free School Zones Act, the Columbine tragedy occurred. And the series of copycat school massacres has shocked and saddened our country ever since.

Clearly, the gun ban is not working. And it’s past time to try a new approach.

It’s time to go on the offensive! It’s time to repeal gun control, rather than talk about “enforcing the gun laws on the books.”

We don’t want to enforce gun control laws -- that’s what makes innocent people, including children sitting in their classrooms, less safe.

Anti-gun zealots who have enacted one unsuccessful gun ban after another have come up with a slew of reasons why our nation’s lawmakers should be protected by an army of heavily armed guards, but our children should be vulnerable.

There is a word for this -- it’s “hypocrite.” It is time to protect our children with the same tools and the same zeal we use to protect our congressmen.

It is time to pass the Stockman bill and give real protection to our children.

Contact your Representative. Ask him to cosponsor H.R. 35, the Stockman repeal of the gun-free school zone ban.

Unfortunately, it would not ever be signed by Obama if it miraculously passed both legislative chambers. They would never have enough votes to override his veto.

I'll still call my Congressman and ask him to cosponsor it

Most colleges refuse to let their own students and faculty carry on campus (along with visitors who go into school buildings) and colleges primarily teach adults. I don't think concealed carry would be permitted in grade/middle schools and high schools before it legally gets permitted in state universities.

I agree but we have to try. The anti's are pushing hard, we need to push back.

Nice to see, but hardly an issue for most of us (at the Federal level).

Federal law provides an exception for those licensed by the state that the school is in. That means that as far as the Feds are concerned, I can legally carry my firearm here in PA, and in UT too.

Actually you're onto something. Lets put their Commie asses on the defensive for once.
I mean big time. Get the progun reps to intro pro bill after pro bill, tie em onto some D Social Justice bill and watch them flounder.
I like it
