Columbine survivor introduces bill to expand concealed-carry in schools

DENVER — Some students are calling for tougher gun-control laws after escaping last week’s horrific massacre inParkland, 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.

Mr. Neville, who has introduced the bill annually since he was elected in 2014, said the current law “creates a so-called gun free zone in every K-12 public school.”

“This act would allow every law-abiding citizens who holds a concealed carry permit, issued from their chief law-enforcement officer, the right to carry concealed in order to defend themselves and most importantly our children from the worst-case scenarios,” Mr. Neville said in a statement.

Looks like there are still some students that are truly educated by their parents instead of the school system.

Hopefully, they will counter the sheep that are protesting to dismantle the Second Amendment!
