Rep. Steve Stockman (R-TX) has introduced a bill to repeal the "Gun-Free School Zones Act" of 1990 (updated in 1995) on the grounds that mass shootings at schools have increased five-fold since its passage.
The "Safe Schools Act of 2013" (H.R.35), co-sponsored by Rep Broun, Paul C. [GA-10] notes that the 1990 "gun-free" law has made schools unsafe because "shooters now know that they can victimize American school campuses with no fear that victims will be armed."
Stockman's bill notes that there have been 10 school shootings killing at least four people each in the 22 years since the "gun-free" bill passed - compared to only two in the 22 years before passage.
What's more, "Horrific massacres on school campuses in Pearl, Mississippi, and southwestern Virginia, were averted by armed staff and students," it says.
Given that "the 'Gun Free School Zones Act' has been a deadly failure," H.R.35 says it will "restore safety to America's schools by allowing staff, teachers, and administrators to defend the children and themselves."

Stockman is probably my new favorite congresscritter.
Common sense rears its ugly head!
It’s a start.
BTW, does any know how to post an image?
The Bloomberg attack safety tips are priceless..
Now that is a good response to this event.
I’ll send a tweet to my congressman to encourage him to support it. He probably will anyway but encouragement doesn’t hurt.
This is the kind of “common sense” gun law that the Commies will never accept.
Too bad liberals don’t understand that ‘Gun Free Zone’ signs invite PREDATORS with guns!!
schools are high-capacity killing zones.
I love the sound of backbones in the morning. Sounds like vict’ry!
The moron who thought that up should be charged as an accessory in every school shooting since the "Safe" Schools crap was signed into law...
We need to ban low capacity assault presidents.
You got that right, there are hundreds of feel good laws that need to be scrapped.
“The moron who thought that up should be charged as an accessory in every school shooting since the “Safe” Schools crap was signed into law... “
That would be Joe Biden. Or Slo-Jo as they call him in Congress. It was his bill that created the gun-free-zones.
Of course, the Oppresive commies will whine that we cant trust people with guns or something.
(Better to trust that criminals or lunatics will follow the rules )
If thats the case, shouldnt we take the nuclear codes away from the Dear Liar?
I’ve found twitter to be a great direct access tool for congressmen and state legislators.
