Rep. Thomas Massie (R-Ky.) introduced “the Safe Students Act” last week to repeal “the Gun-Free School Zones Act of 1990.”
“Gun-free school zones are ineffective. They make people less safe by inviting criminals into target-rich, no-risk environments,” Massie said in a statement. “Gun-free zones prevent law-abiding citizens from protecting themselves, and create vulnerable populations that are targeted by criminals.”
“A bigger federal government can’t solve this problem. Weapons bans and gun-free zones are unconstitutional. They do not and cannot prevent criminals or the mentally ill from committing acts of violence. But they often prevent victims of such violence from protecting themselves,” he added.
This bill was first introduced by former Texas Rep. Ron Paul in 2007.
