Back in, August 2011, Ron Paul introduced a bill in the House that would allow teachers to carry firearms onto public school grounds. Gun-control groups called it an "extremist" bill with no practical use and that the bill would threaten the safety of American families.

Those against this bill argued that American schools are one of the safest places in our country and that the bill is a horrifi
c piece of propaganda that is aimed to present a direct threat to public safety.

Ron Paul argued that the Gun-Free School Zones Act protects criminals, asserting that such attacks as Columbine, Virginia Tech and Fort Hood “all occurred in government facilities where the private possession of firearms was prohibited.”

“It’s time to say NO to criminal safe zones,” Ron Paul said. “And a great place to start is the blatantly unconstitutional Gun-free School Zones Act.”

Paul’s bill would have allowed well-trained and trust-worthy teachers and staff to carry guns onto school campuses.

H.R. 2613, the Citizens Protection Act of 2011, would repeal the Gun-Free School Zones Act of 1990 and remove all federally created criminal safety zones.

The Gun-Free School Zones Act of 1990 makes it “unlawful for any individual knowingly to possess a firearm at a place that the individual knows, or has reasonable cause to believe, is a school zone.”

After the 1999 shooting at Columbine High School and the 2006 shooting at Platte Canyon, two high schools in Colorado, some pro-gun groups said that repealing the School Zones Act would make schools safer.

In 2008, after an armed man shot a 16-year old girl in Platte Canyon High School, a pro-gun group argued that it could have been prevented if other people could have carried firearms.

Alan Gottlieb, chairman of the Citizens Committee for the Right to Keep and Bear Arms, said at that time that all the law has done “is create target-rich, no-risk environments for monsters who have no fear of encountering an armed teacher or administrator, or a legally armed private citizen who might happen to be in the building.”

The legislation was referred to the House Judiciary Committee.

Right or not, he never stood a chance at beating Obama. The media would have crucified him.
