Ban Gun Free Zones, Not Guns

Gun free zones don't work!Gun free zones are nothing more than hunting grounds for cowardly predators and mad-men who know that no one will be there to stop them from committing their horrible deeds.
Why is it that Congress uses your tax dollars to protect themselves and their children with armed guards but they are against you being able to do the same thing?  Are their children more important than yours?

Did You Know?

Ask Your Congressman to Cosponsor H.R. 35
The Stockman Repeal of the Gun-Free School Zone Ban

2,500 times last year alone legal gun owners stopped violent crime when confronted with it long before any police assistance came.  More proof that when seconds count, the police are only minutes away.

Of course, you probably didn’t know any of this because mainstream media doesn’t find it worth reporting. It’s not sensational enough and doesn’t fit with their anti-gun agenda. What’s insane is people who think removing rights from responsible people will somehow keep them safe.
Congressman Steve Stockman (R – TX) 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 or her to cosponsor H.R. 35, the Stockman repeal of the gun-free school zone ban.
