Columbine Survivor Introduces School Gun Measure

posted on February 27, 2016

While the media typically only reports on the anti-gun activism of survivors of mass shootings, one Colorado state legislator is bucking the trend.

According to USA Today, Colorado state Rep. Patrick Neville is a survivor of the mass murder at Columbine High School back in 1999, and he doesn’t believe stricter gun control is the answer. In fact, Neville has introduced a measure that would permit teachers with concealed weapons permits to carry guns at the state’s schools in an attempt to halt future shootings.

“The only thing that is going to stop murderers intent on doing harm is to give good people the legal authority to carry a gun to protect themselves and our children,” Neville said in a statement, according to The Hill. “More of my friends would still be alive today.” A similar bill introduced by Neville last year was killed during the session.
