California Law Makers Want Your Kids To Die.

Just in case you have already forgotten the Sandy Hook Massacre, let me remind you of one very important fact. More than 20 children and adults were shot to death in a GUN FREE ZONE. How can anyone be shot with a gun in a facility where there are no guns?
If your chewing gum is a sugar-free gum, then there is no sugar. Is a gun-free-zone really gun-free? Well…Sandy Hook elementary certainly wasn’t.
So a gun free zone is a cruel hoax, at best. At worst, your children will die in a gun free zone.
I really don’t believe the California State Legislators are so mentally challenged as to not know the facts of what I just explained. If they are’, then they surely don’t belong in the State Capital, they belong in a ‘HOME’. If they do understand, then why are they creating GUN FREE ZONES replicating a Sandy hook scenario? The only answer is, as I said, ‘THEY WANT YOUR KIDS TO DIE’.
We already know that the State of California is a Nazi wasteland. However, it’s utterly amazing to see just how far they’ll go to ensure their teachers and children are as defenseless as possible. A recent bill has been proposed and passed, the aim? To keep people with concealed carry permits off of school campuses. Which means the only people that will be on school campuses in California with a gun are criminals and crazies that want to shoot your kids. Just like Sandy Hook my friend.
This is in stark contrast to a bill recently passed by the Oklahoma legislator giving teachers and staff the ability to carry guns in schools. Now do you think that the people in the Oklahoma legislature are smarter than those in California? Or is it that the Law Makers in Oklahoma just don’t want their kids to die like they did a Sandy Hook? You decide!
California’s Newest Assault on your kids is Disgusting. Guns.com gives us the details:
A bill that will end the current exception for lawful concealed carry on California campuses rapidly gained steam and passed a bipartisan Senate committee with unanimous vote last week then took the floor in a 23-12 vote Monday.
The measure, which would remove the long held ability of licensed concealed carry permit holders to carry on K-12 and university campuses in the state, passed the Senate’s Appropriations Committee by a 7-0 vote May 28 then met with more of a GOP response in a floor vote Monday.
Gun control advocates paint a picture of the current law translating into dangerous guns on school grounds.
“Under existing law, county sheriff’s issue CCW permits and thereby determine who may carry a concealed, loaded gun on school grounds or campuses,” reads testimony by the Nazi Brady Bunch Campaign in support of the proposal. “This creates the opportunity for a 21 year old from a rural county to obtain a CCW permit and carry a loaded, hidden handgun in a dormitory on an urban campus.”
The fix, proposed by Sen. Lois Wolk, D-Davis, is her SB 707, which would drop the current exception in the California Gun Free School Act that allows for those with a permit to carry on campus. The measure would prohibit those with a concealed carry permit from having their firearm with them on any school property in the state to include K-12 campuses, school apartment buildings, common areas, college and university campuses, and parking lots.
Although It would allow them to approach inside the 1,000 exclusion zone surrounding campuses, but not actually set foot on the grounds with a gun.
The bill seems to be experiencing no opposition from lawmakers so far, Second Amendment groups to include Gun Owners of California, the California Rifle and Pistol Association, the National Rifle Association and the Firearms Policy Coalition, the latter terming the legislation, “perhaps the worst gun control bill currently alive in the California Legislature.”
Brandon Combs, FPC president, told Guns.com the lack of backbone in GOP lawmakers against the measure is shocking.
“These so-called Republicans just voted against our Second and Fourteenth Amendment rights. It’s an outrage. I’m furious,” Combs said Friday after the unanimous and bipartisan committee vote. “We’re considering all of our options, up to and including recall campaigns. If our elected officials – especially those who rode into Sacramento claiming to be pro-gun – want to thumb their noses at our civil rights, then they should be thrown out of office.”
The two Republican members of the Appropriations Committee, state Senators Bates and Nielsen, switched their vote to “nay” on the floor this week after a backlash.
The gun rights advocate contends that if the bill continues on its winning streak without a united front against it, the state’s Democratic Governor would have no inclination to consider it for a veto as he had the occasional anti-gun measure advanced in past sessions.
“If the GOP doesn’t unanimously oppose SB 707, it is hard to imagine that Governor Brown would not sign it when it reaches his desk,” Combs said.
It makes no sense, unless of course the purpose is to make California Schools as dangerous as Connecticut schools where kids are killed by the dozens.
THE BOTTOM LINE: In light of the overwhelming amount of evidence to the contrary, lawmakers still insist law abiding gun owners on school grounds somehow constitute a danger to the public. To tell someone who’s gone through the extensive background checks and the training necessary to obtain a concealed carry permit in California, that they pose a risk to public safety is ridiculous.
When you see states making boneheaded moves like this, you can rest assured they’re doing it to gain more power for themselves. This doesn’t make anyone safer, it just makes people less free, and it is dangerous to children and other living things.
There has never been a case in American history where a CCW permit holder has shot up a school or a theater or a church or a mall or a DMV, well… maybe… a DMV, but then you wouldn’t fault them for that would you.
