The good news: the immoral, unconstitutional “no fly, no buy” legislation was voted down in the senate.
The bad news: legislation to repeal “gun free” zone laws hasn’t even made it to a vote.
“Gun free” zones let mass killers know that their targets cannot shoot back. Repealing “gun free” zone laws will make sure any future potential mass killer faces armed resistance. In fact, repealing “gun free” zone laws may prevent future criminals from even attempting mass shootings. After all, even the angriest criminals don’t attempt mass shootings in police stations.
The Orlando, Newtown, and San Bernardino shootings all happened in “gun free” zones. In fact, nearly 99% of mass shootings happen in gun free zones.
Senators: Will you sponsor legislation to repeal “gun free” zone laws? Will you filibuster to bring it to a vote? Will you prevent future mass killings?
Please sponsor and vote for legislation to repeal “gun free” zone laws. Please stop playing political games, and solve the problem. Let this be the last mass shooting of unarmed civilians in America.
And if you lack the political courage to sponsor legislation to repeal “gun free” zones, please step down. I, and other Libertarian candidates for U.S. Senate, have already pledged to sponsor legislation to end gun free zones. We will do whatever is necessary to bring that legislation to a vote, and do everything we can to make sure it passes.
If you cannot sponsor legislation to repeal “gun free” zone laws and actually make Americans safer, then please step down, and let us do it.
