Rep. Thomas Massie's Solution to School Shootings: Repeal the ‘Gun-Free School Zones Act’

Research compiled by Dr. John Lott of the Crime Prevention Research Center shows that at least 94% of mass shootings happen in gun free zones. 

That disturbing trend continued in Uvalde, TX, where a mass-murdering madman killed 19 children in an act of evil. 

But what is the left's solution? More restrictions on guns. 

Thankfully, not everybody in Congress believes that is the solution. 

Kentucky Congressman Thomas Massie's 'Safe Students Act,' which has 17 co-sponsors, would repeal the 'Gun-Free School Zones Act,' allowing staff in schools to carry firearms to defend their students. 
 
“Gun-free zones are ineffective and make our schools less safe. Since 1950, 98 percent of mass public shootings have occurred in places where citizens are banned from having guns,” Rep. Massie said. “Banks, churches, sports stadiums, and many of my colleagues in Congress are protected with firearms. Yet children inside the classroom are too frequently left vulnerable.”

Representative Thomas Massie (R-KY) announces his re-introduction of the "Safe Students Act," H.R. 7415. The "Safe Students Act" repeals the "Gun-Free School Zones Act of 1990," (GFSZA) eliminating GFSZA's one-size-fits-all federal ban on guns in school zones. Enactment of the "Safe Students Act" would make it easier for state and local governments and school boards to unambiguously set their own firearms policies. 

“Gun-free zones are ineffective and make our schools less safe. Since 1950, 98 percent of mass public shootings have occurred in places where citizens are banned from having guns,” Rep. Massie said. “Banks, churches, sports stadiums, and many of my colleagues in Congress are protected with firearms. Yet children inside the classroom are too frequently left vulnerable.”

“The only thing gun-free zones do is disarm law-abiding citizens and take away their ability to protect themselves and others. We shouldn’t leave our most vulnerable – our children – in an unsafe environment like gun-free zones where acts of violence cannot be stopped,” Rep. Jeff Duncan (R-SC) said.

“Gun Free School Zones are a lie,” said Dudley Brown, President of National Association for Gun Rights. “It doesn’t make guns magically disappear.  They only make criminals out of the people who would protect our children. Repealing this ludicrous federal law would put criminals on notice that they can’t commit heinous acts in schools with impunity any longer.”
