Seems like more of a carry issue, than political, sicne I doubt any of us think it's a bad idea.

Rep. Thomas Massie proposes repeal of federal gun-free school zones despite educators' objections (http://www.courier-journal.com/article/20130104/NEWS0105/301040082/Rep-Thomas-Massie-proposes-repeal-federal-gun-free-school-zones-despite-educators-objections?nclick_check=1)

The funny part is, the Democrat from Louisville (Louisville/Jefferson County, Dist. 3, is our most liberal and most urban district and our only single-county district).
“The Gun-Free School Zones law is designed to keep students from bringing guns to school and to ensure that there are serious consequences for those who do,” Yarmuth said in a statement. “Repealing the law would make it more difficult to hold offenders accountable.”
:rofl: Because it wasn't already illegal for kids to carry guns and take them to school? They're both a violation of state law here - when's the last time you heard ogf a juvenile being prosecuted under federal law for having a gun?

This is one bill that should undoubtably be passed. And that moron doesn't know what he's talking about. According to the GFSZA it was passed because of the increase in gun violence in America and people would be afraid to send their kids to school. The GFSZA and the LEOSA turns cops who are not acting in official capacity to commit felonies. And of course people who have carry permits that carry outside their state are committing a felony anytime they come within 1,000 feet of a school. Also states that don't require a license to carry, openly or concealed, have residents of their state break this law all the time. Probably one of the biggest pieces of feel good legislation we have.

Which is ironic, since the version that was not held unconstitutional was passed years into a steady decline in violent crime.
