For the past 20-years or more, our nation has been rocked by one public school shooting after another. One that really captured the nation’s attention was the April 20, 1999 shooting at Columbine High School in Littleton, Colorado. Eric Harris and Dylan Klebold formulated a plan and carried it out. They shot and killed 12 students and one teacher. They also wounded more than 20 others before turning their guns on themselves.
The nation was outraged and thousands of liberals began calling for stricter gun control. The media and liberals basically ignored the fact that both boys blamed the shootings on their godless evolutionary teaching, a dangerous philosophy that has helped destroy a couple of generations of Americans and is helping to destroy America. The media and liberals pointed to violent video games and the Goth culture the boys were involved in, but they wrote about evolution and survival of the fittest and one of them even wore an evolution t-shirt when they went on the shooting spree.
Then on December 14, 2012, Adam Lanza killed his mother and then went to Sandy Hook Elementary School and started shooting young kids. By the time law enforcement arrived on the scene, Lanza had killed 20 students, ages 6 and 7, and 6 school staff members. When authorities arrived, Lanza took the cowards way out and shot himself in the head.
Once again, liberals and the media called for banning assault rifles, large-capacity ammunition magazines and passing more gun control laws, including universal background checks for every firearm transaction in the nation. That included the need for a background check on a father and son, if the dad was to give his son a gun as a gift.
Conservatives responded with a more sensible solution, passing laws and ordinances to allow teachers and faculty members to obtain training, obtain concealed carry permits and then carry their concealed firearms on campus. The object was to give teachers and faculty the chance to protect their students and themselves, especially since it takes law enforcement up to 15 minutes to respond to emergency calls and arrive on the scene.
Ohio was one of those states, and within months of the state passing a law to allow teachers to be armed on campus, over a thousand teachers and faculty members contacted training centers so they could be trained, licensed and protect their students.
California was another state that allowed teachers with concealed carry permits to carry their weapons on campus during school hours. Currently, five school districts in the state allow teachers and faculty with concealed carry permits to carry while at school. These districts realize the importance of protecting students.
However, the state is completely run by liberals who hate America and America’s constitutional rights. They’ve worked hard on eliminating as many of those rights as possible, while sending flaming left-wing liberals like Nancy Pelosi, Maxine Waters and Barbara Feinstein to Congress.
Earlier this year, a group of liberal Democrats introduced AB 424 into the State Assembly (their version of the House of Representatives). The bill is designed to prevent anyone with a concealed carry permit to carry a weapon on any school campus, including legally permitted teachers and faculty. The bill does not discriminate between law-abiding citizens or criminals as Democrats don’t want anyone to have a gun.
On Monday, the California Assembly voted 43-23 in favor of passing the bill and sending it on the Senate. Chances are, the bill will pass the state Senate since Democrats hold a 27 to 13 majority. If the Senate passes the bill, Gov. Brown is certain to sign it, as he is a flaming anti-gun, anti-Constitution, and anti-American liberal Democrat.
It should be alarming to California residents to know that their Democrats in the state legislature care more about their anti-gun agenda than they do about the safety of California’s children. They want to rely on law enforcement to protect them, but we all know that by the time law enforcement arrives, it’s too late for many kids. By passing AB 424, California’s Democrats are making students the targets of any deranged mass shooter who wants to make a name for him/herself, and every Republican in the state should be pointing that out to the voters.
