Default 2019 HR3200 Massie: Repeal Gun-Free School Zones

H.R.3200 - To repeal the Gun-Free School Zones Act of 1990 and amendments to that Act.116th Congress (2019-2020)

Text not available as of 6/15.

Those longing for limited government will sympathize with Rep. Thomas Massie’s (R-KY) sentiment that “we need more pieces of legislation that repeal laws.”

The Kentucky Congressman has reintroduced the “Safe Students Act,” which would repeal the Gun-Free School Zones Act originally passed in 1990 but then amended years later in 1996 after the Supreme Court ruled it unconstitutional.

“The act has long restricted gun possession within 1,000 feet of a school campus,” according to

Rep. Massie’s press release says that legislation “would repeal the Gun-Free School Zones Act, eliminating the one-size-fits-all federal ban on guns in school zones, making it easier for state and local governments and school boards to unambiguously set their own firearms policies.”

Rep. Massie asserted that gun-free school zones do not work and actually have the effect of endangering the people left defenseless inside of their perimeters.
Of course, the bill introduced in a (D) controlled House will go nowhere.
No one will really understand politics until they understand that politicians are not trying to solve our problems. They are trying to solve their own problems - of which getting elected and re-elected are number one and number two. Whatever is number three is far behind.
- Thomas Sowell
I've been saying that for years ...

There is no value at all complaining or analyzing or reading tea leaves to decide what these bills really mean or actually do; any bill with a chance to pass will be bad for gun owners.

The details only count after the Governor signs the bills.

Gregg Easterbrook’s “Law of Doomsaying”: Predict catastrophe no later than ten years hence but no sooner than five years away — soon enough to terrify people but distant enough that they will not remember that you were wrong.

Not a lawyer, just Some Guy On The Interwebs.

"Rep. Massie asserted that gun-free school zones do not work and
actually have the effect of endangering the people left defenseless
inside of their perimeters."

The Law of Unintended Consequences pertains...

They Don't Work as Intended, and In fact, so far they produce
the Exact Opposite Effect:

Crime Prevention Research Center:***-shootings/

Which is probably why Democrats don't want to rescind it, they need
Dead Bodies to stand on so they can disarm the people who had
nothing to do with 1 crazy persons murderous rampage....

The time for that bill, like National Reciprocity, was when the GOP controlled both the House and the Senate as well as the Presidency. Otherwise, it is merely symbolic, something to force a vote on to get Dems on the record as antis and to smoke RINOs out of hiding....
