Columbine survivor introduces bill to expand concealed-carry in schools

(Worthy News) - Some students are calling for tougher gun-control laws after escaping last week’s horrific massacre in Parkland, Florida, but another school-shooting survivor is going in a different direction.

Colorado House Minority Leader Patrick Neville, who attended Columbine High School at the time of the 1999 mass shooting, has again introduced legislation to remove limitations on concealed carry in K-12 schools.

Under state law, concealed-carry permit holders may bring firearms onto school property, but must keep them locked inside their vehicles. [ Source: Washington Times (Read More...) ]

  1. I do not see how having a gun way out in ones car, on school grounds, could have helped the kids in this last school shooting. None of them (or any other students) had enough time or access to get to their cars, in time.

    It's understandable that this politician (who went to school at Columbine) cares. And that he cares more than the rest of us who never had friends or family there, but this wouldn't' solve much of anything.

    Wanna keep your kids safe? Home-school them.

    Some kids at the high school levels can do it at home, alone, with parents just checking and/or minimal accountability. The Calvert Academy curriculums can do nationally accredited. That's accredited in all 50 states.

    The HSLDA (Home School Legal Defense Association) has funds parents can apply to, to help single parents, widowed parents, US military parents, etc. pay for home schooling materials. HSLDA even defends parents/guardians from governmental abuses homeschooling parents sometimes experience. They also allow parents to pay monthly the membership fee, which comes to about $10 a month, with first month more to begin. And being a member gives lots of free helps.

    In Alaska, the State of Alaska pays for all but the $10 a month to HSLDA. A single parent on welfare can do it there and in many other US States.
