Second amendment supporters can breathe a sigh of relief.
A report from the New York Times highlights how Education Secretary Betsy DeVos told a Senate Committee that the federal commission on school safety will not be focusing on the role guns play in school shootings.
The Trump administration set up this commission in March after the deadly Parkland Shooting, in which a deranged student killed 17 people.
In the wake of school shootings in Parkland, Florida and Santa Fe, Texas, gun controllers have been advocating for all forms of firearms restrictions.
Unsurprisingly, these same gun control advocates are now questioning DeVos’ recent decision to table investigations on the impact guns have in school shootings.
Bob Farrace, a spokesman for the National Association of Secondary School Principals, raised his concerns about the commission’s decision to discard discussions on guns:
“If the commission won’t address the role of guns in school violence, we hope that means it also won’t recommend a proliferation of guns in schools — arming teachers, eliminating gun-free school zones and other ill-advised proposals that will make schools less safe.”
Senator Jeanne Shaheen of New Hampshire also chimed in by citing statistics demonstrating that school shootings in other industrialized countries “occur at a scale far beyond any other industrialized nation.”
She finished off her remarks recommending that the commission take a different course of action:
“It does seem to me that you should think about reworking the mission of the commission.”
With Republicans in states legislatures like Florida kowtowing to anti-gun pressure, there is reason to be worried about Second Amendment rights in America.
However, cooler heads seem to be prevailing in the Trump administration when it comes to guns.
The current administration is beginning to recognize there is much more to school shootings than just guns.
Considering that 98 percent of school shootings occur in “gun-free” zones, a new approach to gun policy in schools is desperately needed.
For the sake of Second Amendment supporters nationwide, let’s hope that the Trump administration strikes at the root of this problem by moving towards the elimination of gun-free zones.
TRUST THE MAN: Here’s A Growing Map of Deep State Conspirators Who Have Been Fired
President Donald Trump continues to solidify the American people’s position in the federal government.
Former FBI director James Comey is reeling from the FBI’s release of information pertaining to his exit from the Federal Bureau of Investigation.
The forms reveal a mad dash by the Department of Justice in the days after Comey’s spring 2017 firing to retrieve secret information from Comey’s office and to figure out the extent of what Comey was actually doing as FBI director.
Comey signed the Sensitive Compartmented Information Nondisclosure Agreement, which makes it all the more serious that Comey violated sections 2, 3, 4, 5, 8, and 13 by illegally handing over presidential briefing memorandums (page 5 and 6 of FBI release).

Comey is not alone in his government unemployment.
An interactive mapping project has sprung up on mindmeister to track Deep State conspirator cells that have been fired in the age of President Donald Trump.
