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)
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.
I think I am going to start looking at real estate in Texas... I have a feeling even the sand down there is going to get expensive, even if you do have to deal with cock roaches... (listening to Glenn Beck this am.) When the civil war breaks out, I want to be south...
