Joe Biden’s Introduction of Gun-Free School Zones Act Comes Back To Haunt Him

In a recent tweet, Turning Point USA Executive Director Charlie Kirk took a shot at Joe Biden for creating gun free zones in America.

Joe Biden was responsible for introducing the Gun-Free School Zones Act in 1990.

Kirk claims that “Biden has done more to allow school shootings than the NRA or any Republican ever has.”

Recently, Biden flirted with the idea of banning glocks. Decades after this law was signed, Biden’s pro-gun control agenda remains intact.

However, there is an interesting point about the 1990 Gun Free School Zone Act.

The gun control status quo is bipartisan in nature.

In fact, this law received President George H.W. Bush’s signature.

Bush, a Republican, was no Second Amendment champion throughout his time in office. When he could have stood up for gun rights, Bush kowtowed to anti-gun pressure and signed this bill into law.

This law has effectively turned schools into shooting galleries for deranged lunatics.

Nearly three decades later, Republican governors have made up ground by passing pro-gun legislation like Constitutional Carry.

However, this case is another reminder that just because a politician is a Republican does not guarantee that they will be a pro-gun champion.

In fact, if the right circumstances present themselves, Republicans will likely cave in to gun control pressure just like Florida Governor Rick Scott did in 2018 after the Parkland shootings.
