California Assembly Passes Bill To Restrict Guns In Schools

posted on May 24, 2017

The California Assembly earlier this week passed a bill that would revoke superintendents' ability to allow people to carry guns in school zones, prompting one lawmaker to spout off about something he apparently knows little about.

“Research shows allowing more guns in schools makes them less safe,” bill author Kevin McCarty bragged to the Associated Press.

In fact, research shows no such thing. According to John Lott, head of the Crime Prevention Research Center, McCarty’s bill is a solution looking for a problem.

“The simple fact is that there haven’t been any problems,” Lott wrote in an op-ed at ocregister.com. “Prior to the early 1990s, there were no state laws specifically restricting concealed carry on K-12 property. In 2015, when California became the first state in at least 40 years to pass a law restricting concealed carry on school grounds, no one could point to a single incident in California. That hasn’t changed in the last two years.”
