“It was the NRA.” “It was them redneck, no-good gun owners.” etc, etc,etc. You guys had three days to spew your crap, now it is my turn.
In 1993, the Federal Law Gun–Free Schools Act of 1993 (HR.987 of the 103 Congress) was introduced by Rep. George Miller (still seated for CA) and stated that:
To amend the Elementary and Secondary Education Act of 1965 to require each State, as a condition of receiving Federal assistance under such Act, to implement a gun control program in its schools, and to establish a program of grants to local educational agencies for purposes of purchasing crime prevention equipment and training security personnel.
As with all things in Congress, the last part was promptly dissolved into nothingness as proven by the the actions or Mr. Lanza. And the law basically created a hunting preserve for the criminally insane when the states promptly followed suit and enacted their local versions of Gun Free Schools.
So the reason why your kids might be right now in a building which will provide no protections in case of a deranged killer is the “Honorable” George Miller. But that is not all! The first Co-Sponsors of the bill were Elenor Norton (DC), Douglas Peterson (no longer representing Fl), Tony Hall (no longer representing OH) and Benjamin Cardin (MD).
The bill had a total of 19 co-sponsors and can be viewed here. I am sure some of the names will be highly familiar as part of the Gun Control brigade.
So now you know who was the “genius” and the co-sponsors behind “Hey dude, you wanna shoot up some kids. School is wide open!” law. It takes a United State congresscritter come up with a law that basically says in order to keep the chickens safe from the fox, we must remove the dog, send the farmer away and leave the gate to the hen-house open. Make sure you thank them for having children killed in schools for
28 18 glorious years.
