Bloomberg Was In New York, But Neville Was At Columbine

posted on April 14, 2015

Colorado State Rep. Patrick Neville remembers Columbine High School all too well—he was there on the fateful day 16 years ago. Now he wonders if “people I’d known since elementary school … might still be with us” if only some of the “heroic staff … had been able to equip themselves.”

Neville has sponsored a bill that would allow concealed carry by rigorously background-checked permit holders on school grounds. “We’ve tried it the other way for years now … shooters are not deterred by a flashy sign on the door.”

The usual detractors queue up: “It’s a fantasy,” they claim, that a good guy with a gun will “come blasting around a blind corner and take out a shooter.” These folks must get their firearms knowledge from Hollywood and Michael Bloomberg, not the example set by 11-plus million Americans who carry, and who often protect themselves and others.
