    Theyíre doing it now because they know it wonít 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 wouldíve 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 isnít to protect innocent life, itís 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.

    The only common sense gun legislation was written about 227 years ago.

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

    House Republicans are looking to permanently eliminate gun-free school campuses across the country by reintroducing a bill to repeal the Gun-Free School Zones Act.

    Kentucky GOP congressman Thomas Massie reintroduced a 2007 bill originally from former Texas representative and libertarian icon Ron Paul Tuesday, which would completely repeal the 1990 Gun-Free School Zones Act. The "Safe Students Act," H.R. 3200, has seven Republican co-sponsors and seeks to eliminate what Massie's office described as a "one-size fits all federal ban on guns" in areas immediately around schools.

    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.
