Measure Would Repeal Federal Gun-Free School Zone Law

posted on January 11, 2017

U.S. Rep. Thomas Massie, R-Ky., chairman of the newly formed Second Amendment Caucus in the House of Representatives, introduced legislation last week that would repeal the Gun-Free School Zones Act of 1990. H.R. 34, the Safe Students Act, would repeal the act that makes it “unlawful for any individual knowingly to possess a firearm at a place that the individual knows, or has reasonable cause to believe, is a school zone.” 

Co-sponsored by Reps. Brian Babin, R-Texas; James Comer, R-Ky.; Louie Gohmert, R-Texas; and Jody Hice, R-Ga., H.R. 34 has the support of NRA and other gun-rights groups. As Massie noted, “Gun-free school zones are ineffective. They make people less safe by inviting criminals into target-rich, no-risk environments.”
