Sen. Alan Hays, a Republican from Umatilla who is sponsoring the senate version of the bill, says the legislation is in the interest of maintaining a safe learning environment for all of our schoolchildren.

They gotta protect the likes of Trayvon Martin ...

Well, perhaps they have a point. The community needs stand off weapons, not in close weapons when dealing with those thugs in their system.
Liberals don’t trust themselves to be armed, therefore they seek to disarm everyone.
