They’re doing it now because they know it won’t pass, but they can claim that they tried in an attempt to win favor with the pro-gun side. If they REALLY wanted it to pass, they would’ve done it when they knew they could push it all the way through.

I have searched, but have found absolutely no evidence that remotely suggests that "gun-free zones" do anything to protect anyone. If anyone here can show me otherwise, please do.
Considering that almost all mass shootings have occurred in gun-free zones, that alone should convince reasonable people that the policy is an utter failure. While unarmed citizens have had success against armed assailants, that is extremely rare, and most die trying; and having a gun available doesn't guarantee success, but it greatly improves the odds.
If the goal is to protect innocent life in the most effective way possible, the elimination of gun-free zones would be a good start.

The goal isn’t to protect innocent life, it’s all about making the unknowing masses feel like their government cares about them and wants them to be safe.

Had it not been for Las Vegas and Parkland, those might have had a chance.

I carry always not because I go places trouble is likely, but because trouble has a habit of not staying in its assigned zone.

FYI, HR 3200 is the bill on this topic.

As it stands, it's obviously an ineffective law. If they truly don't don't want guns in schools then there should have been provisions to screen everyone going into the schools. Of course, that would extend the school day and cost the taxpayers more money.
