Columbine Survivor Proposes Necessary Expansion of Concealed-Carry in Schools
A survivor of the horrific Columbine massacre, Colorado House Minority Leader Patrick Neville, is once again introducing legislation that would remove limitations on concealed carry in schools K-12.
In the wake of the recent Florida shooting, many liberals, as well as some students, have called for tighter gun laws without taking in the reality of the situation. If armed guards were protecting our schools, any maniac with a gun would stand very little chance of even making it to the door of the school.
Neville’s legislation goes the complete opposite direction of the shouting liberal horde. The survivor of the 1999 shooting says his proposed bill would “allow every law-abiding citizen who holds a concealed carry permit, issued from their chief law-enforcement officer, the right to carry concealed in order to defend themselves and most importantly our children from the worst-case scenarios.”
The Republican legislator noted that his classmates would have been spared their awful fate had there been the proper protections put in place to ensure the safety of the student body:
“As a former Columbine student who was a sophomore during the shootings on April 20, 1999, I will do everything in my power to prevent Colorado families from enduring the hardships my classmates and I faced that day . . . Time and time again we point to the one common theme with mass shootings, they occur in gun-free zones.”
The reality of the situation is not hard to face. Guns are necessary tools to keep us safe from those crazy and willing enough to want to harm individuals en masse. There is a lot of weight bearing down on the shoulders of liberals who choose to not take the proper precautions in ensuring their children’s safety. If there was a man with a gun at the school in Florida – regardless of if the F.B.I. actually decided to do their job – we’d have a dead gunman and absolutely zero lives lost.
