Miguel’s School Hardening Act of 2022.
My general proposals:
The Gun-Free School Zones Act of 1990 is immediately repealed. There will be no federal mandate that prohibits carrying firearms by non-prohibited individuals in any school of the nation.
The Federal government will allocate one million dollars* per school per year for the purchase of firearms and training of school personnel.
These funds will be available under certain conditions: a) No less than 10% of school personnel will be armed at any time when school is active, or during an event sponsored by the school. b) Armed school personnel on duty will be given qualified immunity for actions taken inside the school or at school-sponsored event. c) Armed School Personnel will receive a compensation of $1000 a month for his/her duties. d) Armed School Personnel will receive paid training by long-standing firearms trainers and facilities before every school year. e) Armed School Personnel should be encouraged to practice their skill once every month, dues and ammunition paid by the fund. f) The identity of the Armed School Personnel will remain confidential. Revealing such information would be punished by a $10,000 fine for the first time, $100,000 fine and a year and a day in prison for the second time and $200,000 and 5 years in prison for the subsequent violations. All monies collected will go to fund the school’s allocation for firearms, training and safety. The fines cannot be paid out of the taxpayer’s money.
A list of schools that comply with the requirements of the School Hardening Act of 2022 will be published online.
After all the Armed School Personnel requirements are completed, whatever funds remain should be used only for school safety hardening such as fencing, surveillance, alarms, etc.
I know it needs a couple of tweaks, probably add First Aid training and equipment, but I believe I covered most of what I would want. And of course, to find one single congresscritter to stand up and just demand that The Gun-Free School Zones Act of 1990 be repealed is a fucking LSD dream of flying multicolored bunnies with dove wings.
(* A tentative figure, of course, but a “good first step” in the parlance of Gun Grabbers from the 90s)
