Columbine Survivor Files Bill To End Gun Free School Zones

Published

on

Colorado House Minority Leader Patrick Neville, who attended Columbine High School during the 1999 massacre, has filed a bill to allow teachers to arm themselves in Colorado’s public schools.

Patrick Neville has long been one of the loudest opponents to gun control in the Colorado State House. After filing the bill, Neville stated “This act would allow every law-abiding citizen 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.”

As a survivor of the Columbine school shooting, Rep. Neville understands the importance of the Second Amendment more than most. He contends that if faculty members had the right to bear arms in the school, more of his classmates may have survived.

“As a former Columbine student who was a sophomore during the shootings on April 20, 1999, I will do everything in my power to prevent Colorado families from enduring the hardships my classmates and I faced that day,” Rep. Neville said. “Time and time again we point to the one common theme with mass shootings, they occur in gun-free zones.”

While Rep. Neville believes that ending gun free zones will reduce school shootings, many of the survivors of the Parkland school shooting do not agree. Some of the students, likely led by anti-gun operatives, are organizing a national march to demand gun control.

As I’ve published here before, the gun control proposals being demanded during the upcoming march would do nothing but cause more mass shootings, as the evil people committing these murders don’t follow the law, and only exploit laws that the law-abiding follow.

White Pill: Montana House Moves Constitutional Carry Bill Forward

Constitutional Carry is one ray of hope for the Right.

Published

on

On January 20, 2021, the Montana House of Representatives passed Constitutional Carry legislation, HB102.

Dean Weingarten of Ammoland.com reported that the bill passed by a 66 to 31 margin.

Weingarten provided some context to the significance of this bill’s progress:

The bill is the accumulation of a decade and a half of struggle against Democrat Governors, who have repeatedly vetoed reform legislation passed with large majorities in the legislature. Numerous sections in the bill show the Montana legislature has learned the lesson from other states as they restore the right to keep and bear arms.

Montana’s Senate is made up of 31 Republicans and 19 Democrats and Governor Greg Gianforte is a Republican, so the passage of this bill augurs well.  If passed, HB102 would make Montana the 17th Constitutional Carry state.

Montana is already a very gun-friendly state, and represents a low-hanging fruit for Second Amendment activists to tap into.

Constitutional Carry has been one of the most successful movements on the Right over the past twenty years. It’s easy to complain about the corrupt status quo, but there are still plenty of ways right-wingers can score victories. Constitutional Carry is one of them.

It would behoove the Right to analyze existing trends and build off movements that are already producing results. There’s no need to embark on quixotic campaigns that end up being total fools’ errands. Find what’s already working and run with it.
